Vegas Odds for the 2017 Golden Globes

If you want to take a gamble on the Golden Globes, the smart money this year appears to be on “Manchester by the Sea” and “La La Land.”

The Wynn casino resort in Las Vegas has released its odds for the 74th Golden Globe Awards and, while several categories like best musical or comedy and best director have clear favorites, others are locked in a much tighter race. The odds are released for entertainment purposes only.

According to the casino, “Manchester by the Sea” is narrow favorite to win best picture in the drama category with odds of 7 to 5. However, “Moonlight” is hot on its heels with odds of 9 to 5. This leaves “Hacksaw Ridge” and “Hell or High Water” lagging behind. “Lion” is deemed a fairly considerable outsider with odds of 20 to 1.

Meanwhile in the acting categories, “La La Land” co-stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are both considered front-runners on the comedy or musical side, while Natalie Portman and Casey Affleck have been installed as solid favorites on the drama front.

Your best bet for TV, says the casino, is to bid on “Game of Thrones” for drama and “Atlanta” in the musical or comedy category, but don’t be surprised if “Stranger Things” or “Transparent” swoop in  to take the prize.
