New Jersey has been at the forefront of the U.S. legal online sports betting movement, and given it is one of the country’s most liberal betting markets, it’s no surprise that NJ online sports betting is offering odds on the Emmy Awards.

In fact, New Jersey is the only state offering betting markets on predetermined awards shows, and DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook are, wait for it, rolling out the red carpet to interested bettors as the only two online betting sites offering action on the Emmys.

We recommend DraftKings. They offer a $200 first-bet match , which you can grab right here .

Let’s take a look at the odds on the available betting markets for the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards to be held tonight at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Outstanding Comedy Series

Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, is the overwhelming favorite to take home Best Comedy, and it’s certainly the show with the best name recognition.

  • Veep (-134)
  • The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (+200)
  • Barry (+650)
  • Fleabag (+650)
  • Russian Doll (+3300)
  • Schitt’s Creek (+5000)
  • The Good Place (+500)

Outstanding Drama Series

It’s the year of the drama with some heavy-hitters up for Best Drama, but based on these current odds, it appears this award is reserved for Game of Thrones. At -1000 odds, there’s a 90.9% implied probability that GOT will be the winner.

  • Game of Thrones (-1000)
  • Killing Eve (+650)
  • Better Call Saul (+2000)
  • Ozark (+3300)
  • Succession (+3300)
  • This is Us (+3300)
  • Bodyguard (+4000)
  • Pose (+4000)

Outstanding Limited Series

What’s a limited series? It’s a show that has at least two episodes, runs a total of 150 minutes, and tell a complete and non-recurring story. HBO’s Chernoby, created by Craig Mazin, details the Soviet Union’s 1986 nuclear plant disaster and is the clear favorite tonight.

  • Chernobyl (-200)
  • When They See Us (+125)
  • Escape at Dannemora (+2500)
  • Fosse/Verdon (+3300)
  • Sharp Objects (+5000)

Outstanding Variety Talk Series

No love for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, I guess. It’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver well out in front of a muddled crowd.

  • Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (-2000)
  • The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (+1000)
  • The Daily Show with Trevor Noah (+1400)
  • The Late Late Show with James Corden (+1700)
  • Full Frontal with Samantha Bee (+2000)
  • Jimmy Kimmel Live! (+2000)

Outstanding Competition Program

In its 11th season, VH1’s RuPaul’s Drag Race has an implied win probability of 95.2% based on the current odds. Sounds like a lock.

  • RuPaul’s Drag Race (-2000)
  • The Amazing Race (+700)
  • The Voice (+1000)
  • Top Chef (+1400)
  • American Ninja Warrior (+3300)
  • Nailed It! (+5000)

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie

Ben Winshaw is the favorite here, but I have a soft spot for Stellan Skarsgard because of his role as Gerald Lambeau in Good Will Hunting. Not really relevant here, but, you know.

  • Ben Winshaw (-305)
  • Stellan Skarsgard (+275)
  • Michael K. Williams (+650)
  • Paul Dano (+1000)
  • Asante Blackk (+2000)
  • John Leguizamo  (+2500)

  • Rachel Brosnahan (+650)
  • Natasha Lyonne (+1400)
  • Catherine O’ Hara (+5000)
  • Christina Applegate (+5000)

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

Pose star Billy Porter has a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical in his back pocket. He’s the favorite tonight, and this would be his first Emmy.

  • Bob Odenkirk (+400)
  • Kit Harington (+2500)
  • Sterling K. Brown (+2500)
