Oddsmakers in Las Vegas are betting on Gladiator to slay its best picture competition at the Academy Awards on Sunday. In fact, Bally's race and sports operations director John Avello gives the Russell Crowe epic 2-1 odds. Traffic follows closely at 3-1, while Erin Brockovich trails at 4-1, Chocolat gets a not-so-sweet 6-1, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon finds itself the longest shot at 8-1.
