Vegas Odds for the 2016 Oscars

According to Oscar Vegas odds, smart betters should invest their money in “The Revenant.”

Las Vegas oddsmaker America’s Line released its Oscar odds following Thursday morning’s announcement of the 2016 Oscar nominations, with “The Revenant” proving to be an early favorite in multiple categories. While “Spotlight” came in as a best picture favorite at 4 to 5, “The Revenant” is only a slightly riskier bet at 6 to 5. At 1 to 5, best actor nominee Leonardo DiCaprio (“The Revenant”) is the biggest individual favorite. “The Revenant’s” Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, at 1 to 2, is also a smart bet for the best director trophy.

The predictions, which are produced purely for fun as gambling on the Oscars is illegal, highlight a perceived lack of close competition in both the male and female acting categories. In addition to DiCaprio’s odds, Brie Larson (“Room”), at 1 to 3, is a clear favorite for the best actress win. Beyond “Spotlight” and “The Revenant’s” tight race for best picture, the best supporting actor category presents the other side of tough competition, where Sylvester Stallone (“Creed”), at 4 to 5, tops Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies”), at 7 to 5.
