Odds of the 2022 Emmy Awards

Best Drama Series Odds & Pick

Dramatic series Possibilities
Succession -134
Squid Game +300
Ozark +800
Better call Saul +1000
Strange things +1000

The third season of Succession has been critically acclaimed, as the show continues to follow the dysfunctional Roy family fighting for control of Waystar RoyCo. Succession leads the top honors this year with 12 nominations, but faces stiff competition from Netflix hits like Squid Game and Ozark. Stranger Things is priced very well at +1000 after an impressive third season that made everyone talk. But without a doubt, the odds seem to favor the HBO show.

Best Comedy Series Odds & Pick

Comedy series Possibilities
Ted Lasso +150
Hacks +175
Barry +375
Only kills in the building +650
Abbott Elemental +1000

Apple TV wants to keep the award for best comedy series this year, as Ted Lasso, starring Jason Sudeikis, heads the bets.

The comedy shows Lasso taking on the challenge of managing an English football team with no prior knowledge of the sport. Barry has been nominated for this award on two previous occasions since 2018, while Hacks was nominated last year. Hulu’s Murders In The Building, starring Selena Gomez and Steve Martin, could be the dark horse pick.

Best Lead Actor in a Dramatic Odds & Pick Series

Actor Possibilities
Brian Cox (Succession) -118
Lee Jung-Jae (Squid Game) -106
Jeremy Strong (Succession) +400
Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) +1000
Adam Scott (fired) +1400

Another betting market dominated by Succession is that of Outstanding Lead Actor, with Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong among the leading contenders. However, the Netflix hit Smash Squid Game may see the two fall short here. We like the chances of Lee Jung-Jae picking up the award.

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Odds & Pick

Actress Possibilities
Zendaya (Euphoria) -250
Melanie Lynskey (yellow jackets) +300
Laura Linney (Ozark) +350
Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) +800
Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) +1000

Zendaya will be looking to win Best Lead Actress for the second time this year. She won the award in 2020 for her portrayal of Rue Bennett in Euphoria, becoming the youngest actress to win the award. Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh make the nomination cut for their roles in Killing Eve, despite the final season ultimately disappointing fans worldwide. It’s hard to see past the favorite.
