playnow-c releases full list of Super Bowl and Oscar odds


With two major entertainment events in the next few weeks, has released their annual lists of Super Bowl and Academy Awards betting favourites.

More bets are placed each year on the Super Bowl than on any other individual sports event. It is estimated that $10 billion is wagered globally with over 200 million people placing bets on the game. Last year, players in B.C. wagered approximately $350,000 on Super Bowl through BCLC.

Super Bowl and Oscars are the two most popular events for props and novelty bettors due to the marketing hype, the connection to pop culture and the entertaining storylines. Novelties capture almost any speculation around sports, arts, sciences or any other special-interest subject.
