"Breaking Bad" has broken out of the pack of Emmy nominees for Best Drama to emerge as the overwhelming frontrunner among the experts polled by Gold Derby. See their rankings here.

As you can observe from looking at our chart, "Breaking Bad" was initially tied with last year's champ "Homeland" soon after nominations were announced in July, but its strength has grown consistently and dramatically ever since.

Currently, it leads the experts' predictions with 1 to 3 odds over "Homeland" with 6 to 1, "Game of Thrones" at 14 to 1 and "House of Cards" at 50 to 1. See full odds rundown here.

Experts backing "Breaking Bad": Robert Bianco (USA Today), Debra Birnbaum and Matt Roush (TV Guide Magazine), Mike Cidoni and Lynn Elber (Associated Press), Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter), A.J. Hammer (CNN HLN Showbiz Tonight), Melanie McFarland (IMDB), Tom O'Neil and Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), Steve Pond (TheWrap), Piya Sinha-Roy (Reuters), Ken Tucker (freelance) and Glenn Whipp (L.A. Times).

Team "Homeland": Daniel Manu (TelevisionWithoutPity), Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood). Picking "Game of Thrones": Lynette Rice (Entertainment Weekly).
