- Ted Lasso (-150) is the favorite to win its second Emmy Award for Best Comedy Series
- Severance (+1100) could upset Succession (-210) for Outstanding Drama Series
- The 74th annual Emmy Awards airs live from Los Angeles on Monday, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET
Saturday Night Live’s longest-running cast member Keenan Thompson will host the 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards, a night honoring television’s best shows and biggest stars. The Television Academy nominated Apple TV’s feel-good crowd-pleaser Ted Lasso for a whopping 20 awards, while other runaway hits such as Severance and Squid Game scored multiple nominations.
Who will win on TV’s biggest night? Before we look at a few key award categories, here’s where you can view the top betting sites for Entertainment in 2022 with the latest betting odds for the 2023 Oscars.
Outstanding Comedy Series
|Only Murders in the Building||+1600|
|The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel||+2500|
|What We do in the Shadows||+4000|
|Curb Your Enthusiasm||+5000|
Lasso a lock?
Ted Lasso (-150) could become the first comedy series since Modern Family — and only the eighth in TV history — to capture the Emmy for Season 1 and Season 2. Twenty nominations suggest Jason Sudeikis’ hit show is a lock for the award, as does its recent triumphs at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Producers Guild Awards, and Critics Choice Awards.
If you’re looking for a longshot, the second season of Hacks (+375) was far superior to the syrupy mess Ted Lasso, and voters already proved their love for the HBO Max comedy by awarding Jean Smart the best actress award in 2021.

Outstanding Drama Series
|Better Call Saul||+700|
Succession (-210) set a new Emmy record by snagging 14 acting nominations this year. The 2020 Best Drama winner does face strong competition after an all-time year of great television. Squid Game (+250) also made Emmys history as the first foreign language series nominated for Best Drama, garnering more viewers on Netflix than Succession could ever dream of.
Better Call Saul (+700) just wrapped up an incredible six-season run on AMC, but Severance (+1100) could be your best bet. The eerie Apple TV hit starring Adam Scott secured 14 nominations, including key noms in acting, writing, directing, casting, and editing.
Lead Actor Drama Series
|Squid Game - Lee Jung-jae||-105|
|Succession - Brian Cox||+160|
|Better Call Saul - Bob Odenkirk||+400|
|Severance - Adam Scott||+900|
|Succession - Jeremy Strong||+900|
Another loaded category
Lee Jung-jae (-105) is the frontrunner after already triumphing at the SAG and Critics’ Choice Awards. The Squid Game lead can become the first Asian-born Best Drama Actor Emmy winner and the first man to claim the award while playing a fully non-English language role.
Acting legend Brian Cox (+160) secured his second Emmy nomination for Drama Actor for his fiery performance as billionaire TV tycoon Logan Roy. But, if anyone steals the award from Lee Jung-jae, it will be Bob Odenkirk (+400). This is the Academy’s last chance to give Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman an acting win after nominating him on five separate occasions.

Supporting Actress Drama Series
|Ozark - Julia Garner||+125|
|Better Call Saul - Rhea Seehorn||+300|
|Succession - Sarah Snook||+350|
|Squid Game - Jung Ho-Yeon||+400|
|Euphoria - Sydney Sweeney||+1200|
|Yellowjackets - Christina Ricci||+1400|
|Severance - Patricia Arquette||+5000|
|Succession - J. Smith-Cameron||+5000|
Do anything but award Ozark
Julia Garner (+125) could win her third Best Drama Supporting Actress Emmy in four years. However, while firecracker Ruth Langmore is a fun character, it’s hard to understand how such a turd of a show could garner any nods.
Rhea Seahorn (+350) is much more deserving for her BCS role as conflicted lawyer Kim Wexler. She was snubbed by the Television Academy for years until finally landing her first nomination in 2022.
