Can I Bet the Oscars on FanDuel?

FanDuel only takes betting on the Oscars from New Jersey.  Our friends at BetOnline will be taking Oscars bets from most US states (except NJ, PA and NV).


Oscar bets are typically maxed in the hundreds, therefore, wagering on a category where the favorite is -1000 doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

This year's Academy Awards is among the most competitive when it comes to betting, with most categories featuring at least two nominees with relatively short odds.

In addition to the nomination categories, BetOnline features a whole host of fun prop bets including:

What will be said first?

Slap +100

Rock +140

Smith +250

What will happen first to Jimmy Kimmel?

Fake slap (attempt or real) -300

Kiss from recipient +200

Gender of first person to appear on stage

Female -150

Male +100

Transgender +1600

Total upsets among the Big 5 categories (Best Picture/Actor/Actress/Director/Original Screenplay)

Over 1

Under 1

This year's Best Picture category had more of a defined favorite in Everything Everywhere All at Once at -1500 and probably not worth betting due to that price.

Rot     95th Academy Awards - Best Picture     Moneyline
401     The Fabelmans         +1600
403     TAR         +3500
404     Everything Everywhere All at Once         -1500
408     Women Talking         +10000
411     The Banshees of Inisherin         +1500
417     Top Gun: Maverick         +1500
419     Elvis         +10000
421     Triangle of Sadness         +10000
422     Avatar: The Way of Water         +10000
