Chadwick Boseman Favorite For Best Actor Oscar

Chadwick Boseman is a heavy favorite to win the Best Actor award at this year's Oscars for his role in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

The late, great Chadwick Boseman passed away in August 2020 after a battle with colon cancer. His tragic passing robbed the world of a truly great actor. His rose to worldwide fame playing Black Panther in one of modern cinema's great superhero performances.

Before he sadly passed he filmed his portrayal of Levee in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. That incredible performance was unfortunately his last but he looks set to posthumously win the Best Actor gong at April's ceremony.

Boseman is now a best price of -1675 to win the award, which implies a 94.4% chance that he wins. He was as short as -400 only a couple of months ago but there has been a swell of opinion that Boseman deserves the award for his excellent performance.

Oscars betting continues to be popular over the OddsChecker site and over the past 7 days we've seen that 72.82% of all bets have been on Boseman to win the award. Even more incredible is that 99% of all money wagered on that time has been on the star. That's a mindblowingly high percentage and really shows just how special he was as a talent.
