Wynn Las Vegas sets Golden Globes odds

Movie awards pundits tend to agree that there doesn’t seem to be a front-runner this year.

Nobody bothered to tell Johnny Avello that.

Avello, director of race and sports operations at Wynn Las Vegas, has “Boyhood” as a 1-3 favorite to win best motion picture, drama, and “Birdman” a 1-4 favorite to win best motion picture, musical or comedy, at the Golden Globes.

But that’s nothing compared to the prohibitive favorites, at 1-9 each, for “Still Alice’s” Julianne Moore and “Birdman’s” Michael Keaton to take home acting honors.

Here’s a look at how he sees the categories shaking out at the 2015 Golden Globes, set for Jan. 11. And, as always, these odds are for entertainment purposes only — which is a polite way of saying, no betting.
