Bet on the Oscars Online

Did you know that you can actually bet on the Acacemy Award winners online?  There are so many futures bets on sites like Bovada and Sportsbook that you can even bet on presidential elections.

I’m making a few bets on the Oscars tonight.  Unfortunately, some of the picks that I have are such shoe-ins that the payouts aren’t really worth the bet.  For example, Daniel Day Lewis is the superior favorite to win Best Actor.  It is a 50/1 bet for him to win that category.  That means that if you lay down $1,000 for that bet and he wins, you can only win $20.
