Oddsmakers set for this weekend’s Grammy Awards

My feelings about the Grammys? An abyss of disdain. The event has long lost its edge, relevance, or even entertainment value. Yet the Grammys still generate some music news and since tracking such things are my job, I have to pay attention. Grudgingly.

Bookies will take bets on anything, of course, so here are the odds on who will win Album of the Year via Bovada.

Golden Hour, Kacey Musgraves +120
Black Panther: The Album, Various Artists +250
Scorpion, Drake +350
Dirty Computer, Janelle Monae +600
Invasion Of Privacy, Cardi B +1500
Beerbongs & Bentleys, Post Malone +1800
By The Way, I Forgive You, Brandi Carlile +2000
H.E.R., H.E.R. +2500

Other bookies (here’s an example) have Janelle Monae’s Dirty Computer as the favourite at +300. And here’s another site that tilts in the same direction.

If you need some help, Rolling Stone has published this list of predictions.
