OSCARS 2015 BETTING TIPS: ONE LAST CHANCE TO BEAT CAROL IN ACCOUNTING

Preface:

This is meant for casual gambling among friends, don’t stake your livelihood on these picks. My average accuracy dropped to 89% after a disastrous turn last year. Hopefully, this will fare better. Here’s an easy bet for you to win. Gamble with an idiot on whether or not Neil Patrick Harris will perform an original musical number. Kicking off the Oscars 2015 betting well.

Have your say!
