Betting On The Emmys: The Bear, Succession, Ted Lasso Lead The Odds To Win

Jason Sudeikis accepting an Emmy Award for Ted Lasso
  • The 75 Annual Prime-Time Emmy Awards Begin January 15th at 8 p.m. on FOX
  • Anthony Anderson Will Be The Host Of The 2024 Emmys
  • Productions Released Between June 1, 2022, And May 31, 2023, Are Eligible

The Prime-Time Emmy Awards ceremony is normally held in September, but this year it was pushed back due to the Hollywood writers and actors strikes that were still ongoing at that time.

Odds for betting on the Emmys have been posted since prior to September, causing a four month delay in any potential payouts.

Best Actor: Comedy

  • Jeremy Allen White (The Bear) -1000
  • Jason Sudeikis (Ted Lasso) +500
  • Jason Segel (Shrinking) +1000
  • Bill Hader (Barry) +1800
  • Martin Short (Only Murders In The Building) +2500

Jason Sudeikis plays the titular role of Ted Lasso on Apple+ and has won the Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy for the past two years in a row. Despite Sudeikis’ prior dominance, Jeremy Allen White of The Bear holds a gargantuan lead in the moneyline odds to win this year.

The -1000 Emmy odds offered for White translate to a 90% chance of winning.

Best Comedy Series

  • Ted Lasso (AppleTV+) -100
  • The Bear (FX) +100
  • Abbott Elementary (ABC) +800
  • Barry (HBO/Max) +2800
  • Jury Duty (Freevee) +3300
  • The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Prime Video) +3300
  • Wednesday (Netflix) +4000
  • Only Murders in the Building (Hulu) +5500

Ted Lasso has also won the Emmy for the Best Comedy Series the past two years. What’s strange is that BetOnline has offered Ted Lasso odds of -100 while granting a moneyline of +100 to The Bear. Both sets of odds are idential as -100 and +100 means winning bets will double your money. Essentially, both The Bear and Ted Lasso have an equal chance of winning.

Best Supporting Actress: Comedy

  • Ayo Edebiri (The Bear) -100
  • Sheryl Lee Ralph (Abbott Elementary) +220
  • Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso) +240
  • Janelle James (Abbott Elementary) +2000
  • Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs Maisel) +2200
  • Jessica Williams (Shrinking) +2200
  • Juno Temple (Ted Lasso) +2800

The Bear also has the best chance of winning Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy with Ayo Edebiri’s performance as sous-chef Sydney Adamu.

Outstanding Series: Drama

  • Succession -1500
  • The Last Of Us +800
  • The White Lotus +2000
  • Better Call Saul +2000
  • The Crown +2500
  • House Of The Dragon +3300
  • Andor +4000
  • Yellow Jackets +6600

Best Actress: Drama

  • Sarah Snook (Succession) -700
  • Melanie Lynskey (Yellow Jackets) +500
  • Bella Ramsey (The Last Of Us) +900
  • Elizabeth Moss (The Handmaids Tale) +2200
  • Keri Russell (The Diplomat) +2800
  • Sharon Hogan (Bad Sisters) +2800

Best Supporting Actor: Drama

  • Matthew Macfadyen (Succession) -1000
  • Alan Ruck (Succession) +1000
  • F. Murray Abraham (The White Lotus) +1400
  • Alexander Skarsgard (Succession) +1400
  • Will Sharpe (The White Lotus) +2000
  • Nicholas Braun (Succession) +2200
  • Michael Imperioli (The White Lotus) +2200
  • Theo James (The White Lotus) +2500

The above three entertainment prop bets reveal that Succession is a lock to win each catergory. With leads of over 1000 points over the second-ranked Emmy nominee, it would be a massive upset if Succession doesn’t bag the trophy across the board.

Best Actor: Drama

  • Pedro Pascal (The Last Of Us) -110
  • Keiran Culkin (Succession) +250
  • Jeremy Strong (Succession) +400
  • Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) +500
  • Jeff Bridges (The Old Man) +2000
  • Brian Cox (Succession) +2800

Succession was honored with three nominations in the category of Best Actor in a Drama, but Pedro Pascal of The Last Of Us appears poised for the win. Pascal is probably best-known for his lead role in Disney+’s The Mandalorian or Oberyn in Game of Thrones, but he’s proved how diverse of an artist he is with three nominations this year.

Other than Best Actor in a Drama nod, he is also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series for hosting Saturday Night Live, and Outstanding Narrator for his work on Patagonia: Life On The Edge Of The World “Mountains,” a CNN documentary.

Reality-Competition Program

  • RuPaul Drag Race -500
  • The Amazing Race +475
  • Top Chef +600
  • The Voice +1200
  • Survivor +1200

In 2019, 2020, and 2021, RuPaul’s Drag Race won the Emmy for Best Reality Competition Program, but lost to Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls in 2022. The series has either returned to its former glory or is simply enjoying the absense of a second season of Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls. Either way, online entertainment sportsbooks are predicting a fourth Best Reality Competition Emmy Award for RuPaul and company in a few week’s time.
