2016 Grammy Awards Odds Roundup

The 58th annual Grammy Awards are set to get underway on February 15, and one sportsbook is offering a full slate of odds for anyone looking to get in on the action to spice up the show.

When glancing upon Bovada’s odds, there’s one familiar name you’ll likely be hearing consistently throughout the night: Taylor Swift. Swift is heavily featured throughout nearly every major category, with the blonde superstar the favorite to win Album of the Year and Song of the Year, while having the second likeliest chances to garner Record of the Year.

Swift enters the best album category for the third time on the heels of her massively successful 1989. Her 2010 album Fearless won, while 2014’s nomination Red came up just short as the distinction went to Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. 1989 is a -250 favorite to win the award, however, the superstar will have some serious competition this year.

Fresh off dropping the critically acclaimed hip-hop album To Pimp a Butterfly, Kendrick Lamar is priced at +300 at the book. Music fans will remember the 2014 Grammys, where the rap world was fuming that Lamar’s debut album, Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City lost to Macklemore’s The Heist. Will the 2016 edition of the show right the perceived wrongs from the past? It will be interesting to see.

Meghan Trainor headlines the Best New Artist category at -125 odds, and unless you’ve been living under a rock in the last year, you’ll understand why. Trainor broke onto the scene in 2015 with the smash hit “All About That Bass” and followed it up with successful singles “Lips are Movin’” and “Like I’m Gonna Lose You.” James Bay (+250) and Sam Hunt (+400) remain the other frontrunners to hoist the hardware.

In Record of the Year markets, the ever-catchy Mark Ronson track “Uptown Funk” is hefty -250 chalk, with Swift’s “Blank Space” (+350) and The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” (+600) also in the running. Remember, this category is not rewarded based on sheer popularity, but instead for “quality vocal or instrumental recording tracks.”

Finally, we get to the premiere award for song of the year, and it’s once again the 26-year-old Swift leading the way. “Blank Space” has been tabbed at -140 at the shop, but Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” and Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” will not be easy to beat.
