It is indeed a tight race for Best Director at the 2011 Oscars with odds favoring David Fincher of the Social Network only slightly at -165.  Tom Hooper for The Kings Speech certainly had the better value, promising a payout of $14 for every $10 bet at

Fincher, on the other hand, would require a $16.50 bet to win $10 (the $16.50 will be refunded only if he wins).

“David Fincher is far from a ‘lock’ when compared to other Oscars 2011 categories,” Payton O’Brien, Senior Editor of the website notes. 

We should point out The Social Network was initially made the favorite to win for “Best Picture” by oddsmakers after it won the Golden Globe for “Best Motion Picture”.
