Odds of the 2022 Emmy Awards
Best Drama Series Odds & Pick
|Better call Saul||+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
|Only kills in the building||+650|
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
|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
|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.
Other options and options for the 2022 Emmy Awards
|Category||To pick up|
