Dave Stanley, Spokesperson for Sportsbook.com, questioned the Oscar betting pattern on both their Kate Winslet and Angelina Jolie dress props following some unusually lopsided action.

"It's not enough yet to pull the bets option down but we are definitely monitoring it," Stanley told Gambling911.com late Wednesday.

The odds on Kate Winslet wearing a dress designed by Armani Prive was getting a ton of action on the "No" even though Sportsbook.com has chosen to leave this one at +300 odds for a payout potential of $300 for every $100 bet.

Angelina Jolie wearing a Ralph Lauren designed dress was also getting a good deal of action on the "No".  Odds were listed at +275 in Jolie's case, paying $27.50 for every $10 bet.

Early Oscar betting in general was heavy as observed by both Gambling911.com and Sportsbook.com.  It is without a doubt the third most bet on single day wagering event of the year.

Gambling911.com is widely recognized as the source of betting news for the Oscars.  The website's founder's family helped co-found the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
