"We’ve taken more bets for 1917 to win Best Picture than we have for the rest of the nominees combined, so there’s a clear expectation from our players that it will get the gong on Sunday," said BetAmerica’s Andrew Brown.

According to the odds, the Best Actor and Best Actress awards also looked sewn up, with Joaquin Phoenix and Renee Zellweger both commanding odds-on favorites in their respective categories.
