How To Bet On The Oscars
Betting on the Academy Awards is pretty easy and it is no different then betting on any other sport to be honest. You have to sign-up to an online sportsbook first and foremost and we will use our favorite for US players as an example, Bovada.
After signing up and entering all the standard info you will need to deposit into your account in order to have money to bet on the Academy Awards, on Bovada you can use a credit card, bitcoin or even a Visa gift card.
Next you just go to to their Entertainment Betting Odds Menu and from there you will be able to place all the bets you want on every category from Best Picture to Best Costume Design. This is an example of using Bovada but generally the same methods apply to all Sportsbooks.
Many people have The Shape of Water as running away with the best picture of the year and the runaway winner for Best Actor as Gary Oldman for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the Darkest Hour. He is listed at -1400 to win which is a huge favorite to try and go against.
