Wynn Las Vegas plays the favorites in setting Oscar odds

When it comes to setting his annual odds on the Academy Awards, Johnny Avello is playing the favorites.

Unlike previous years when the Screen Actors Guild Awards were handed out after the Oscar nominations were announced, there already seems to be a consensus after the same movies and actors took home Golden Globes and SAG Awards.

Avello, director of race and sports operations for Wynn Las Vegas, is sticking with those same winners, meaning he’s predicting a best picture win for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

He sees the closest race between supporting actresses Allison Janney (6-5) and Laurie Metcalf (7-5), with the biggest lock being Gary Oldman for his “Darkest Hour” role as Winston Churchill at 1-4.

Here are his complete odds, which are for entertainment purposes only, for the top six categories:

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” 7-5

“The Shape of Water” 7-2

“Lady Bird” 4-1

“The Post” 12-1
