    I’ve gambled on ‘special events’, Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, other awards Reality TV, Eurovision and politics for quite a few years now. (one of my first big wins was Ang Lee winning Best Director for Life of Pi) Now I’ve become a victim of my own success so on most major sites I’m limited to tiny stakes. (Being in the UK still does give me a range of option though.)

    When I started I was looking to bet after events when bookies hadn’t adjusted their odds enough for correlated events. Chiwetel Ejiofor was still favourite for Best Actor after being beaten by Matthew McConaughey at both the Globes and Critics Choice, this year Jojo Rabbit was still available at 9/2 after it’s WGA win.

    I don’t mind betting on a prohibitive favourite, if like others have pointed out they are a dead cert as Watchmen is this year. The rule for betting is look for value not just the favourite. But there’s much more likely to be value in a 9/1 bet than a 1/9. I strongly believe Succession is going to win this year but the value isn’t there to bet on it.

    I think over time you get better at identifying when a favourite is 70% and when it’s 98% that’s important to gambling whereas I don’t think it does get much easier to call the coin flip races.

    I would definitely feel worse about my predictions score if not for my monetary winnings.  Sagand, I always check your predictions, including this year and I cannot believe how much I discounted them.

    Actually, these day is one of those when I find out something new, I just found out that there are more types of bettings besides sports and I am very surprised at teh moment. I am a true gambler and I am betting on soccer, football, basketball, hockey and many other sports which I can bet on, but I never thought that I can bet on the next president or on a star that is going to win oscar. That is a good new for me because I am a very lucky guy, especially for judi slot, so I guess I will predict everything as a medium.
