Odds are that Adam Dunn will be on a successful team Sunday night.

Away from his day job as Chicago White Sox designated hitter/first baseman for about 48 hours, Dunn traveled to Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon to attend the 86th Annual Academy Awards.

Dallas Buyers Club
Focus FeaturesAdam Dunn is an investor in the production company that made "Dallas Buyers Club," which is nominated for six Academy Awards.
As an investor in the production company that made “Dallas Buyers Club,” Dunn, and everybody associated with Texas-based Truth Entertainment, will have six chances at hitting a home run during Sunday night’s live broadcast (ABC/8 p.m. EST).

Not only is “Dallas Buyers Club” nominated for best picture, it is also up for best actor (Matthew McConaughey), best supporting actor (Jared Leto), best original screenplay, best makeup and hairstyling, and best editing.

In a report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, citing oddsmakers at Wynn Las Vegas, “Dallas Buyers Club” was merely a 30-to-1 chance to win best picture, as “12 Years a Slave,” “American Hustle” and “Gravity,” all had better odds. The favorite was “12 Years a Slave” at 2-to-5.

Those odds, revealed in mid-January, were not for betting purposes, though. The European-based oddschecker.com gathered a number of odds that were open for betting from various websites, and the chances for “Dallas Buyers Club” were listed anywhere from 11-to-1 to 43-to-1.
