|Online sportsbook, WagerOnSports.com, has updated its prices on the winners at the 56th Annual Primetime Emmy(R) Awards this Sunday. The sportsbook was the first to post odds on the glittering awards ceremony only minutes after the nominations were announced on July 15th, and now, with only a few days to go, WagerOnSports is inviting us to get our bets in quickly with its new prices on the following categories: Best Comedy Series, Best Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress in a Drama Series. |
Arrested Development is co-favorite with Curb Your Enthusiasm at 2/1 odds for Best Comedy; with the late John Ritter hotly tipped to take Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy at 4/9. Meanwhile, Sarah Jessica Parker is fancied to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy award, listed at 5/7.
WagerOnSports thinks the Sopranos will make a clean sweep of the drama categories this year. The show is now listed at 5/7 to capture the Best Drama Series award, extending its favorite status from the day of nominations when it opened at 3/2 odds. James Gandolfini comes in as a close second at 2/1 odds slightly behind Anthony LaPaglia, who has gone from being a 5/1 long shot to win the Lead Actor in a Drama award to now being the 3/2 favorite. Edie Falco, who plays the first lady of the Soprano family, is the odds-on favorite to be named Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama at 20/21 odds.
