2016 Oscars betting odds - Have the bookmakers predicted the 88th Academy Awards?

  • Who the bookmakers predict will win the 2016 Academy Awards
  • Full betting and details of who the money men think will pick up Oscars

The latest betting news ahead of the 88th Academy Awards where Leonardo Di Caprio is finally expected to win the Best Actor Oscar and The Revenant is being backed to win the Best Picture gong.

The 88th Academy Awards take place at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday February 28th and speculation is rife over who will be picking up an Oscar in 2016.

The bookmakers rarely make mistakes when it comes to predicting the winners and this year they are firmly backing Leonardo Di Caprio to scoop the Best Actor award. The 41-year-old has never won an Oscar, despite being nominated three times for Best Actor (The Aviator, Blood Diamond, The Wolf of Wall Street) and once for Best Supporting Actor (What's Eating Gilbert Grape). 

Di Caprio would be a popular winner and the bookies think that he'll finally realise his dream, with no firm offering odds bigger than 1/33 that he wins Best Actor. That means that you'd have to bet £33 just to win £1 if DiCaprio wins the Oscar.

There are similarly strong favourites for the other major awards. Brie Larsson is a top price of 1/20 to win Best Actress for her performance in The Room, while Sylvester Stallone is 1/3 to win Best Supporting Actor for Creed and Alicia Vikander is 4/11 to win Best Supporting Actress for The Danish Girl.

The biggest prize of all is a little harder to predict and some bookmakers are more confident than others on The Revenant. Several firms have Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's film as short as 1/4 to win Best Picture but others, such as Skybet, are afraid of the chances of Spotlight. Skybet offer 2/5 on The Revenant and 5/2 on Spotlight although the latter can be backed at as big as 7/2 with Stan James.

All the bookies are in agreement that Gonzalez Inarritu will win Best Director though and the Mexican is no bigger than 1/12 to pick up that award.

Who do the bookies think will win the Oscars?

Here are the award winners based on the bookmakers prices:

Best Picture - The Revenant

Best Actor - Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant)

Best Actress - Brie Larsson (The Room)

Best Supporting Actor - Sylvester Stallone (Creed)

Best Supporting Actress - Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl)
