It’s officially Oscars season, as the nominations for the 95th Academy Awards were announced at the crack of dawn in Hollywood.
And for bettors in New Jersey, Michigan, Indiana, Louisiana, and Colorado, it’s also “betting on Oscars” season, as America’s sportsbooks start to catch up with the nominees.
Action has been posted on PointsBet since June, and bet365 and DraftKings were relatively quick to follow by November. Plenty has changed since then. For instance, back in June, the Ron Howard-directed Thirteen Lives was the +600 favorite for Best Picture. It quickly fell out of favor, and wasn’t even nominated for the award.
