Game on, Jane! According to Gold Derby’s Emmy Experts, last year’s Best Reality Host champ Jane Lynch will win again for NBC’s “Hollywood Game Night.” Are our odds-makers correct, or are they overestimating this TV academy favorite?

The Experts give Lynch leading 9/10 odds to win her second Emmy for this popular game show. It would be her third career trophy after a 2010 victory as Best Comedy Supporting Actress for the first season of “Glee.”

Five Experts predict Lynch will win the Emmy: Debra Birnbaum (Variety), Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Lynette Rice (Ent. Weekly), Matt Roush (TV Guide) and Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby).

However, it’s far from unanimous.

A trio of Experts are forecasting a win for Cat Deeley (“So You Think You Can Dance”): Matthew Jacobs (HuffPo), Ken Tucker (Yahoo) and Jarett Wieselman (Buzzfeed).

And one Emmyologist thinks Anthony Bourdain (“The Taste”) will prevail: Eric Deggans (NPR).

The other Reality Host contenders in the running are former winners Heidi Klum/Tim Gunn (“Project Runway”) and Tom Bergeron (“Dancing With the Stars”).
