69th Primetime Emmy Awards Betting Odds

The best in television take center stage as the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards take place September 17. We are seeing a changing of the guard in terms of television with shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Downton Abbey wrapping up the last several years, and new shows rising to take their place. Stranger Things, The Handmaid’s Tale and The Crown are ushering in a new age of TV watching.

So let’s take a quick look at the odds for the major categories ahead of the big night on Sunday.

Outstanding Drama Series

This is easily the most brutal battle for any award. Netflix original Stranger Things was a cultural phenomenon. Hulu original The Handmaid’s Tale found itself incredibly relevant during Trump-era politics. And Westworld looms massively with its production value and superb acting.

We are going to see a first-time winner no matter who wins, as last year’s winner Game of Thrones started too late to be considered for the award.

Outstanding Drama Series

Odds as of September 12 at Bovada

  • Stranger Things +150
  • This Is Us +250
  • The Handmaid’s Tale +350
  • The Crown +450
  • Westworld +1500
  • Better Call Saul +3300
  • House of Cards +4500

Outstanding Comedy Series

There isn’t likely much to see here for bettors. Veep has claimed the award the past two years and is a pretty hefty favorite to do it again. Hell, in the past decade only three shows have won Most Outstanding Comedy.

The only likely competition for Veep comes from Atlanta. The Donald Glover lead dramedy explores a usual storytelling trope (rags to riches) with such complexity and hilarity that it deserves to garner recognition for its excellence.

Outstanding Comedy Series

Odds as of September 12 at Bovada

  • Veep -375
  • Atlanta +300
  • Black-ish +1600
  • Master of None +2500
  • Modern Family +4000
  • Silicon Valley +4000
  • Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt +5000

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series

Two-time reigning champion Jeffrey Tambor looks for the first three-peat in this category since Michael J. Fox won it from 1986 to 1989 for Family Ties. Tambor is still putting on masterful performances as Maura Pfefferman in Amazon’s Transparent but also finds himself as the only major nomination for the program. For the first time in the show’s run, Transparent finds itself not nominated for Most Outstanding Comedy, which could be a sign of things to come for Tambor.

The standout in this category is the previously mentioned Donald Glover. Glover’s creative brilliance is on full display through his portrayal of Earnest “Earn” Marks. The charming performance is subtle and poignant plus Atlanta has been racking up statues throughout the winter award season.
