Christian Bale looks set to cap off a brilliant couple of years with an Oscar for best supporting actor.
Oscars bets on Bale to win for his performance as crack-addicted boxing trainer Dicky Eklund in The Fighter look like coming in at 1/6.
However, there are still plenty of other Oscars bets that look very tempting. Geoffrey Rush has largely been ignored so far for his role as a speech therapist to King George VI in The King’s Speech.
Colin Firth has been getting plenty of awards for his performance in the lead role, but the performance from Rush (who is a lot more likeable than Bale) is also brilliant and could certainly be worth some Oscars bets at 9/2.
It’s looking like a straight fight between Bale and Rush in the Oscars bets, but there are still a few outsiders who could spring a big surprise.
Mark Ruffalo is out at 33/1 to win for his role in The Kids are All Right and is joined at 33/1 by Andrew Garfield for his role in The Social Network.
Oscars bets on either of these two picking up the gong for their understated but engaging performances could see you pick up a very tidy profit – especially if you take advantage of a free bet worth £25 with Ladbrokes.
A £25 free bet on Ruffalo or Garfield winning could see you come away with an £850 pay out – one of the most enticing Oscars bets out there!
