When it comes to the 2011 Oscar odds for Best Actor and wagering on Colin Firth to win for The King’s Speech, Gambling911.com says “forgetaboutit”.

It’s not that he won’t win…he will.  Therein lies the problem as Colin Firth is the biggest “lock” in Oscar betting history since online gambling sites started offering odds on the event.

SBG Global had Firth listed at -10000 odds, which essentially makes it impossible to place a wager on the star. 

Don’t fret though.  SBG Global was offering more reasonable odds in some of the other Oscars categories, including Best Picture, which is somewhat competitive despite the steep price on The King’s Speech.  Note that The Social Network had originally been made the favorite.

2011 Oscar odds for Best Picture at SBG Global were as follows:

3531  

The Social Network

+250

 

3532  

The King's Speech

-1000

3533  

The Fighter

+3000

3534  

Toy Story 3

+7500

3535  

Black Swan

+2500

3536  

Inception

+3500

3537  

127 Hours

+7500

3538  

True Grit

+2500

3539  

The Kids Are All Right

+7500

3540  

Winter's Bone

+6500

 

The Oscars are typically the most wagered on non-sporting event in any given year outside of US Presidential elections.  The awards ceremony also routinely ranks as the third most bet on single day event in terms of overall volume, with the average wager around $10.
