Grammys 2019 Odds

Sunday evening marks the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, where music’s most influential figures from the last twelve months are awarded with the famous Gramophone Award. Last year saw a shocking drop in viewing figures but this year is expected to see a return to the usual standards, especially as Lady Gaga, Childish Gambino, and Kendrick Lamar battle for Song of the Year.

For those in the UK who are interested in watching the ceremony unfold in the early hours of Monday morning, it’s unfortunately not being televised outside of America, but Grammys odds can be found on both William Hill and Betfair, making it possible to predict the winners of each award and compare odds between the two bookies.

As we’re only a matter of days away from the event taking place at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, we’ve looked at all of the nominees, as well as the latest available Grammy odds.

Best Pop Vocal Album

Since making the giant leap from children’s television to music in 2013, Ariana Grande has become one of the world’s biggest solo artists. She now has a total of five studio albums, with two being released in the last two years, so it’s no surprise to see her as the favourite to win Best Pop Vocal Album, with odds of 6/5 on Betfair.

It’s almost bewildering to see Taylor Swift so far behind with odds only as low as 17/10 to win this award, but based on Ariana Grande’s growing dominance as a female solo artist, all others in contention are falling by the wayside. Kelly Clarkson then follows behind at 5/1 with Meaning of Life, Shawn Mendes at 12/1 with his self-titled album, Camila Cabello at 14/1 with Camila, and P!nk with the largest price, given odds of 17/1 for Beautiful Trauma.

Record of the Year

Coming in as a clear favourite, Childish Gambino is frontrunner for Record of the Year with This Is America, best priced at 1/2 on William Hill. He’s balanced his music career with his film career, working as a musician under Childish Gambino and an actor under his real name – Donald Glover. His impact as an actor had him starring as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story in 2018, and he also invested a lot in Atlanta, not only starring but also creating the series.

Through the brave message condemning the mistreatment of black Americans, This Is America had more depth than other songs in the charts over the last twelve months. Other worthy competitors in this category include Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper for Shallow from the A Star Is Born soundtrack at 11/4 and Kendrick Lemar & SZA for All The Stars from the Black Panther soundtrack at 7/1, both best priced with Betfair.

Childish Gambino This Is America Donald Glover

Donald Glover – known as Childish Gambino – has had a big year both as a musician and a film star.

Album of the Year

There’s been a trend for people transcending between music and film at this year’s Grammy Awards, and this has been especially true with A Star Is Born and Black Panther, which were both massively successful at the box office but also stood a chance of success for the music taken from each feature film. A Star Is Born doesn’t feature for the Album of the Year category, but Black Panther is a firm favourite at 13/8 on William Hill.

While the original score for Black Panther was conducted by Ludwig Goransson, the focus for this award goes to the original songs produced by Kendrick Lamar. It almost looks set in stone that this award will go to the various artists behind Black Panther, but Golden Hour by Kacey Musgraves follows behind at 15/8 and Dirty Computer by Janelle Monae at 4/1, both best priced on Betfair. Drake’s latest album Scorpion is priced at 5/1 on William Hill to win the award, with Cardi B and Post Malone being in contention but unlikely to win based on their distinctly large prices.

Song of the Year

Disregarding all other conflicting engagements to attend this ceremony, it’s no shock to see Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s Shallow given the shortest Grammys odds for Song of the Year. Betfair are only offering odds as high as 4/7 for Shallow to be crowned Song of the Year, followed by This Is America by Childish Gambino, which is priced at 3/1 but looks more likely to take Record of the Year.

The short Grammys odds for Shallow to win also put third favourite – God’s Plan by Drake – down at 12/1 on William Hill. All The Stars from the Black Panther soundtrack is then given 16/1 odds on Betfair, with all of Shawn Mendes, Zed, Ella Mai, and Brandi Carlile looking all but out of the race.

Bradley Cooper Lady Gaga A Star Is Born

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are expected to be in attendance ahead of the BAFTAs, where they’re both nominated.

Best New Artist

A lack of representation from British musicians is finally brought to a halt in the Best New Artist category, as Dua Lipa and H.E.R. fight for the title. H.E.R. is only priced as high as 11/10 on William Hill, with Dua Lipa closely behind at 13/8, where both William Hill and Betfair provide the same price.

Remaining names in the running for Best New Artist include Greta Van Fleet at 13/2 on William Hill, Bebe Rexha at 20/1, Luke Combs at 18/1, Chloe x Halle at 18/1, and Margo Price at 25/1, as well as another British artist in Jorja Smith at 33/1.
