Wynn Las Vegas sets Oscar odds

Look for the 88th Academy Awards to spread the love — assuming Johnny Avello is correct.

Avello, director of race and sports operations at Wynn Las Vegas, has “The Revenant” winning best director (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu) and actor (Leonardo DiCaprio), with the other four top awards spread out among “Spotlight,” “Room,” “Creed” and “Carol.”

It’s still early, and several awards considered to be precursors — including the Producers Guild Awards (Jan. 26), Screen Actors Guild Awards (Jan. 27) and Directors Guild Awards (Feb. 2) — still haven’t been handed out.

But here’s an early look at what Avello expects to unfold on Feb. 24.

And, as always, these odds are for entertainment purposes only.
