BetOnline has all your 2017 Academy Awards betting odds below with some competitive pricing in certain categories.

The Best Categories to Bet This Year: Favorites

Huge priced favorites are “locks” that are almost guaranteed to win but the reward is miniscule compared to the risk.  We encourage betting on favorites priced between -500 and -1000 in most cases, with some exceptions (this year’s Best Picture is one of those rare exceptions).

Good bets include Best Adapted Screenplay for Moonlight at -700, which requires a $70 wager to win $10.  You will get back that $70 and profit $10 assuming Moonlight wins.

Best Animated Feature Film Zootopia is not quite a lock at -500 but the risk vs. reward is a little bit better.  If this were boxing, the -500 favorite would almost certainly be considered a lock.

This is true of Best Animated Short Film Piper at -450. 

Star Trek Beyond for Best Makeup gets honorable mention here at -350 as you can bet up to $100 for a $30 and some change profit.

Most Competitive Major Categories

Best Actor is a tight one with Casey Affleck vs. Denzel Washington, and we like Denzel paying $11.50 for every $10 bet.

Best Foreign Language Film was probably the most competitive of the 2017 Academy Awards categories. 

Toni Erdmann and The Salesman were hovering around EVEN odds.
