Oscars Odds: 42% of Bets on Benedict Cumberbatch to Win Best Actor

The 94th annual Academy Awards will be underway on Sunday, March 27 in order to celebrate the past year in film. Benedict Cumberbatch has emerged as the bettors' favorite to take home Best Actor over the last week. Cumberbatch plays Phil Burbank, a hyper-masculine cattle rancher living on the plains of Montana in the 1920s, where he discovers the power of love. Oddsmakers disagree with bettors though as Will Smith is heavily favored to take home the Oscar for Best Actor.

Bettors are backing Benedict Cumberbatch to win Best Actor. Over the last 7 days, 42% of bets have been placed on Cumberbatch. Oddsmakers aren’t as high on Cumberbatch though, who they have given +550 odds to win the award. The +550 is an implied 15.4% chance Cumberbatch is named Best Actor. The Power of the Dog is currently favored by oddsmakers to win Best Picture so Cumberbatch should not be counted out.

Surprisingly, Will Smith has never won an Oscar before. That very well can change due to his impressive performance as Richard Williams, the father of Serena and Venus Williams. Will Smith is the favorite by oddsmakers to be named Best Actor at -800 odds at DraftKings. That is an implied 88.9% chance Will Smith takes home his first ever Academy Award.
