When it comes to betting on our favorite legal sportsbooks, it is not limited to just sports anymore.

Some states allow sports bettors to wager on the Oscars, which is a tremendous event for wagering when you think about all of the various awards to choose from and wager on.

This year will be no different, as the 2021 Oscars betting markets are already posted at DraftKings Sportsbook.

With an odd year for movies due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Oscars will be different as many of the films nominated were seen by viewers in their own homes rather than in the movie theaters. With that said, Oscars betting was a very popular market in years prior which makes it a fun betting event with all of the various awards to wager on.

Let’s take a look at the odds for each of the awards you can bet on for the 2021 Oscars, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
