The 74th annual Emmys Ards show should be a big one and today we are going to give you an updated look at the updated Emmys odds for all of your favorite shows and categories.

2022 Emmys Odds

Outstanding Comedy Series Odds

ShowOddsImplied Chance
Ted Lasso+45018.18%
Only Murders in the Building+75011.76%
Abbott Elementary+90010%
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel+10009.09%

Ted Lasso was a popular choice last year and it won in this category in 2021. The oddsmakers are giving Ted Lasso the best chance to win again according to the 2022 Emmys odds. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a past winner of this award and they find themselves back on the nominee list in 2022.

Outstanding Drama Series Odds

ShowOddsImplied Chance
Squid Game+65013.33%
Better Caul Saul+80011.11%

Succession is a fan favorite and won back in 2020 so it wouldn't be too surprising to see it win again this year. There are so many popular shows on this list though with Yellowstone, Euphoria, and the super popular Squid Game as well. This one feels very up in the air currently with just over two months until the 2022 Emmys.

Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

ActorOddsImplied Chance
Jason Sudeikis+37021.28%
Bill Hader+45018.18%
Steve Martin+45018.18%
Martin Short+65013.33%
Donald Glover+70012.50%
Anthony Anderson+13007.14%

We've seen both Bill Hader and Donald Glover win their fair share of Emmys in this category but I don't know how you don't go with the chalk answer of Jason Sudeikis in Ted Lasso. Ted Lasso is due for a few years of dominance at the Emmys.

Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

ActressOddsImplied Chance
Jean Smart+35022.22%
Rachel Brosnahan+65013.33%
Quinta Brunson+65013.33%
Kaley Cuoco+70012.5%
Issa Rae+85010.53%
Selena Gomez+16005.88%

Jean Smart won last year for her role in Hacks. She has a good chance of repeating but I'd keep an eye on Rachel Brosnahan as a past winner in this category. Her performance in Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is worthy of an award and she previously won this category back in 2018 as well.

Lead Actor in a Drama Series

ActorOddsImplied Chance
Brian Cox+40020%
Lee Jung-Jae+45018.18%
Jeremy Strong+45018.18%
Jason Bateman+60014.29%
Bob Odenkirk+70012.50%
Sterling K. Brown+15006.25%

Here we see a couple of actors from Succession towards the top in Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong. Will 2022 be the year of Succession? The updated Emmys odds could indicate a big year for Succession. Although don't sleep on Lee Jung-jae who might be a good darkhorse pick for this category.

Lead Actress in a Drama Series

ActressOddsImplied Chance
Laura Linney+40020%
Melanie Lynskey+45018.18%
Jennifer Aniston+65013.33%
Mandy Moore+11008.33%
Kelly Reilly+20004.76%

I think this is an instance where the chalk answer makes the most sense. Zendaya is the biggest star on this list on an incredibly popular show in Euphoria. It's going to be difficult to see anyone pulling the upset off on this one.
