View From Across The Pond: Our Oddschecker co-workers across the Atlantic in the United Kingdom have revealed that Rami Malek is the current frontrunner to win the Best Actor Oscar.
He’s odds-on at a best price of -120 to win his first ever Oscar, just ahead of Christian Bale, who is +175 best price after his remarkable transformation to play Dick Cheney in Vice.
Over the course of the January, Malek has enjoyed the support of bettors, with 48% of total bets going on the 37-year-old, compared to 30% for Bale.
Elsewhere, Bradley Cooper completes the top three at +650 for his performance in A Star Is Born. You then have to go all the way back to +2800 for the next in the market; Viggo Mortensenin the acclaimed Green Book.
