Win Some Bets with the Vegas Odds for the 2015 Academy Awards

If you’re looking for a few pointers on your Oscar betting pool, Vegas has you covered.

The Wynn casino has released its annual Academy Awards betting odds, although it’s important to note that these are “just for fun,” as gambling on balloted contests is illegal in this country. “Illegal.”

Looking at the odds, it would seem that Boyhood is your best bet, coming in as a favorite for Best Picture, director Richard Linklater, and supporting actress Patricia Arquette. If you feel like testing fate though, considering betting on American Sniper, which trails as a 75-1 underdog in the Best Picture and Best Actor categories.
