Bookies Braced For Most Predictable BAFTAs Of All Time

This year’s BAFTAs look set to be a thoroughly predictable affair with the big six categories all having odds on favourites at William Hill. Casey Affleck and Emma Stone head the betting for Best Actor and Best Actress at 1/5 and 4/11 respectively while La La Land is just 1/5 to win the Best Film.


Both Damien Chazelle and Viola Davis are 1/10 to win their respective awards with Mahershala Ali 4/9 for Best Supporting Actress.


“Every category is headed by a red hot favourite and we cannot see any upsets this weekend,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Favourite backers will no doubt fill their boots.”
