NEW JERSEY -

Movie lovers have something to be excited about with the announcement that Atlantic City sportsbooks will be the first in U.S. history to legally accept bets on the Academy Awards.

New Jersey sportsbooks are accepting bets on the Oscars, which are set to take place on Sunday, February 24th.

According to analysts at playusa.com, odds on the Academy Awards should generate interest from bettors with sportsbooks breaking new ground on the rapidly expanding legal sports-betting market.

Last month, New Jersey regulators opened the door to legal Oscars betting, though it is possible that this is the only year that it is offered.

So far nine online sites in New Jersey are currently offering odds on the Academy Awards.
