2018 Oscar Odds to Win Best Actor: A Pricey 'Lock'

Written by:
Published on:

Gary Oldman is an absolute "lock" to win Best Actor for the film "Darkest Hour", however, this is not necessarily good for gamblers.

Oldman, at -2000, requires a $200 bet to win $10 (you will get that $200 bet back assuming he is a winner, which he will be). 

If you are looking to make a quick $10 bucks.  This is the way to do it.  Of course, if you are desperate for $10, you probably wouldn't have $200 laying around either.

He'll still get some action.  High rollers will use the Oscars to make an easy profit of $100 or more by risking $1000 or more on various "locks" like Oldman and and Frances McDormand for “Three Billboards”.  She requires a $140 bet to win $10.

Most online gambling websites do impost maximums, typically $500, on Oscar wagers.
