Oscars Prop Bets Released by Online Sportsbooks
Online sportsbooks are accepting bets on the 89th Academy Awards.
Sportsbook Review has posted dozens of Oscars prop betting markets comparing sportsbook payouts on everything from the best motion picture, best actor and actress in a leading role, and more obscure categories like best short subject documentary and costume design.
Sports bettors often find value wagering on exotic prop betting markets; in addition, sports betting sites have smaller limits on such markets as they are generally easier to beat than major sports markets like American football or basketball.
