Best Actress Odds 2012 Oscars – Some Great Value This Year

Unlike in past years when the Best Actress category featured a virtual lock with odds to steep to wager on, the 2012 Best Actress category features three nominees with relatively short odds and, as such, great value.  You can find all the latest updated Academy Awards betting odds from Bookmaker.eu, the leader in bet taking since 1985.

From the oddsmaker’s view there are pretty much only two front runners:  the amazing Meryl Streep at -120 and Viola Davis at -125 odds.  For those who have never wagered before, you would essentially bet $12 to win $10 on Meryl Streep with the $12 wager refunded should she win and you get the additional $10 profit. 

Michelle Williams portrayal of Marilyn Monroe could prove to be a live dog here at +400 or 4/1 odds.  A win by Williams would pay $40 for every $10 bet. 

Glen Close and Rooney Mara each would pay out $200 on a $10 bet.  It really is difficult to see either women winning.  If there is one thing we learn year after year when it comes to the Oscars betting odds, the third, fourth and fifth longest odds rarely – if ever – win.  Nearly always the double digit favorites come through but require a significant upfront wager with nominal reward (i.e. but $50 to win $1 is not uncommon for some categories). 

The Oscars is one of the most bet on events of the year and the single most wagered on non-sporting event after the US Presidential elections.  It ranks among the top 5 single day betting events of the year in terms of traffic to the Gambling911.com website. 

These odds are subject to change, therefore it might be prudent to lock them in here now
