Bookie suspects Uncharted 2 has highest odds of success at BAFTAs

British bookmaker Victor Chandler has a strange sense of what things people should be betting on. For instance, we never would have thought that high-stakes wagering would ever find its way into the British Academy of Film and Television Awards. Yet somehow, gambling on the BAFTAs has becoming a thing, leading Chandler to tally up the odds for each of the awards show's categories.

Perhaps a bit unsurprisingly, Chandler's calculations place Uncharted 2: Among Thieves in front of the video game category -- the only award chosen by a public poll -- with odds of 6/4. Modern Warfare 2 falls slightly behind that with 9/4 odds. Check out the full breakdown of nominee's odds to take home the prize after the jump. We went ahead and split our life savings evenly among the ten contenders, guaranteeing us a victory when the BAFTAs are distributed March 19. Man, we're so good at gambling.

  • Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves - 6/4
  • Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - 9/4
  • Batman Arkham Asylum - 6/1
  • Assassins Creed 2 - 4/1
  • Legend Of Zelda Spirit Tracks - 11/1
  • Wii Sports Resort - 16/1
  • GTA Chinatown Wars - 20/1
  • The Beatles: Rock Band - 25/1
  • FIFA 10 - 33/1
  • Street Fighter IV - 33/1
