With the Academy Awards set for this Sunday, it’s always fun to try and predict who will take home the Oscar. Now, there’s a way to have even more fun guessing the winners.

“Live in the D” hosts Jason Carr and Tati Amare spoke with Andrew Brown about how to play a game to spice up the star-studded night.

You can bet on sports, horse races, and now, the Oscars.

Brown explained that Twinspires can help.

A game offered on Twinspires is based on the odds of winning at the Oscars.

Amare and Carr took a stab at playing the game themselves -- and let’s just say you might want to be on Amare’s team.
