Betting on the Oscars

Betting on the Oscars at Caesars Casino & Sports is a simple process.

The nominees in each available category have moneyline odds posted on whether they will win the award. Just browse through each category and start picking winners.

If you’re right, Caesars NJ gambling site will pay off the wager at the odds posted at the time you placed the bet.

For example, look at the odds in the Best Picture category as of Feb. 20:

  • Roma -275
  • The Green Book +350
  • The Favourite +1500
  • A Star is Born +4000
  • BlacKkKlansman +2500
  • Black Panther +2500
  • Bohemian Rhapsody +2500
  • Vice +10000

This means you’ll need to bet $320 on Roma to win $100 plus your bet back. It also means a $100 bet on The Green Book will get you $400 plus your bet back if it wins.

Plus, you can bet a long shot like Vice with your $10 free bet and you’ll get $1,010 back if it manages the big upset at the Oscars this year.

Betting on the Oscars at Caesars Sportsbook is that easy — really.

But remember, you’ve only got a few days left to do it ahead of the Feb. 24 Oscars ceremony beginning at 8 pm EST.

Finally, don’t forget there are upsets at the Oscars every year.

That means you can bet a long shot at Caesars’ online app and turn your $10 free bet into something really substantial if you correctly predict the Cinderella story coming out of the 2019 Acadamy Awards.
