Best Actress Odds – 2014 Academy Awards (Updated)

Best Actress odds for the 2014 Academy Awards had Cate Blanchett as the odds-on favorite still at Bookmaker.  These odds were listed at -2200.  In Oscar terms, Blanchett is an absolute “lock” and, as such, almost impossible to bet.

Best Actor Odds – 2014 Academy Awards (Updated)

Best Actor odds for the 2014 Academy Awards had Matthew McConaughey as the odds-on favorite still at Bookmaker.  These odds were listed at 1/5.  In Oscar terms, McConaughey is not necessarily a “lock”.

Leonardo DiCaprio was listed among the Field options that would pay better than 5/1 odds. He is seen as someone that could potentially upset at this year’s Academy Awards, though we at Gambling911.com just don’t see that happening.

‘12 Years a Slave’ Odds to Win Academy Award Best Picture – Best Odds

“12 Years a Slave” odds to win the Academy Award for Best Picture varied from one online bookmaker to the next, though the film remained favored to win.  There is actually really good value in betting “12 Years a Slave” barring an upset.

“12 Years a Slave”, while a decent size favorite, is by no means a “lock” to win by Oscar terms.  “Gravity” had relatively short odds and its director was a huge favorite to win the Best Director Oscar.
