According to Betway, Parasite is currently second favourite to swipe the Best Picture win, sharing its betting spot with Sam Mendes’ 1917.
While they share 3/1 odds, storming ahead as the most likely to win the top spot is Tarantino’s Hollywood ode, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is sitting at 7/4.

Joker is doing better than The Irishman for The Oscar race, sitting at 6/1 odds from Betway, while The Irishman has 7/1 odds.
As their nominations have not yet been released, it is trickier to tell which movies could bag the big prize.
Other movies in the running are Marriage Story and Jojo Rabbit, both sitting at 25/1, while at 50/1 are Just Mercy, Little Women and A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood.
None of these films have entirely lit up the awards season yet, with only Laura Dern of Marriage Story getting a look in from these movies.
In terms of the actors and actresses, Betway have Renee Zellweger taking the prize with a 2/7 odds, while Scarlett Johansson is at 6/1, Charlize Theron is at 7/1 and Cynthia Erivo is at 8/1.
Awkwafina, who won the award at the Golden Globes alongside Zellweger, is sitting at 12/1 odds despite this, lower than Saoirse Ronan and Lupita Nyong’o who are both at 12/1.
In terms of the actors, it’s Phoenix all the way on 1/6, while Adam Driver quickly follows on 9/2.
Taron Egerton, who won with Phoenix at the Golden Globes, is at 7/1, while Leonardo DiCaprio sits at 10/1 for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
