Fans will be able to bet via DraftKings on whether or not “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Game of Thrones,” “Veep” or “Chernobyl” will come up victorious at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Netfilx and HBO appear to be the favorites to haul in the most hardware in what is the second event with a “pre-determined outcome” made available for wagering in the Garden State.

“Game of Thrones” is expected to exit its Emmy era with fire and brimstone. The HBO series aims to win a third Emmy for Best Drama. The show concluded its run on HBO this past spring. And even though the finale was panned by diehard fans, “GOT” has 32 of HBO’s network-leading 137 Emmy nominations.

The five-part Neflix drama “When They See Us,” based on the Central Park Five case of the late 1980s, has 16 nominations.

Any bet to win more than $1,000 will be voided per state regulations.

Here are the categories available for betting via DraftKings, with the favorite in each category listed in parentheses:
