Trevor went 6-6 and lost $369. However, his favorite movie of the season, Bohemian Rhapsody, won for Best Picture and Best Actor. Rhapsody was the 5th and last favorite to win Best Picture for a Drama. A $100 bet would’ve profited $2,000!!! Would’ve been worth a $100 bet on your favorite movie, Trevor! Oh well.
And now the original article….
I don’t watch movies. I’ve seen maybe 50 movies in my life. Five of those being Jurassic Park. But my future Brother-in-Law Trevor is the movie king! He won me some money for Best Picture for the 88th and 89th Academy Awards. Spotlight over The Revenant was a nice profit upset special. The following year he gave me Moonlight over La La Land. We thought we lost that one only to find out we actually won.
He has more confidence in his Oscar predictions than Golden Globes. The Globes can be a little sketchy to predict, as The Hollywood Foreign Press does the voting. The Academy Awards are voted on by, well The Academy, duh. The Academy Awards are 16 years older than the Globes. Only 45 of the 75 possible times have the two award shows agreed on Best Picture. via Ranker
But the Globes are today so we’re gonna roll the dice and make some bets. As always, all odds come courtesy of Bovada. All bets are $100. All profits based off the amount bet. All odds as of Saturday 1/5/19. Trevor’s picks are in BOLD.
