Gamble On Redmayne To Win BAFTA Ahead Of DiCaprio

William Hill have seen an overnight move for Eddie Redmayne to win this year’s BAFTA for Best Actor with the ceremony taking place on Sunday. The Brit has been cut from 10/1 to 6/1 to win Best Actor although he remains behind short-priced favourite Leonardo DiCaprio at 1/9.


“There is quite often a bit of Brit bias when it comes to the BAFTAs so I can only assume it is this that has prompted our punters to spark this last minute gamble on Eddie trumping Leo,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
