LOS ANGELES – The 2021 Grammy Awards will be kicking off on January 31 and sports bettors are starting to wager who they think will win the major awards.
The main awards that are garnering the most attention are the Album of the Year award, the Best New Artist award, and the Song of the Year award.
Many prominent names have sports bettors clamoring. Those betting on the Grammys have a lot to wager on leading into the big event.
The biggest award of the night is possibly the Album of the Year award. It is the most coveted award by artists and has sports bettors placing heavy bets.
Album of the Year
- Folklore – Taylor Swift -250
- Future Nostalgia – Dua Lipa +300
- Hollywood’s Bleeding – Post Malone +600
- Everyday Life – Coldplay +1200
- Black Pumas (Deluxe Edition) – Black Pumas +2000
- Chilombo – Jhené Aiko +2000
- Djesse Vol. 3 – Jacob Collier +2000
- Women In Music Pt. III – Haim +2000
Currently, sports bettors are leaning heavily in favor of Taylor Swift for her album Folklore. The pop sensation’s latest effort managed to rake in over two million units sold in its first week and become Swift’s seventh number one album.
It is no surprise that sports bettors will be leaning heavily in favor of Swift, who is the only woman to have won Album of the Year for two consecutive albums.
Longshot bettors should also take note of Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding album’s +600 odds. While Malone has never won the award in the past, his latest effort took in half a million units in the first week.
The album also managed to gain four stars from Rolling Stone.
With big records like Die For Me and Enemies being major staples in 2020, Post Malone may shock the betting world and take the win.
Sports bettors are also taking action on Best New Artist. Current Favorite Megan Thee Stallion has sports bettors taking action.
Best New Artist
- Megan Thee Stallion -700
- Phoebe Bridgers +550
- Doja Cat +600
- Ingrid Andress +1600
- Kaytranada +1600
- Noah Cyrus +1600
- D Smoke +2500
- Chika +3300
Megan Thee Stallion has had a major successful year in being a part of one of the biggest songs of the year in ‘WAP’, releasing her debut album in Suga, and being a Tik Tok attraction for many of her hit singles.
In addition, the Texas rapper also dealt with a highly publicized domestic violence issue that could lend itself to some sympathy votes from the academy going in.
Who sports bettors should also look out for, however, is Doja Cat. Doja Cat has also had a massively successful year, has cleaned out at other award shows including the American Music Awards, VMA’s, and Billboard Awards.
Doja Cat is also being nominated for Record of the Year with Say So, for which she has +1400 longshot odds. The ‘Tia Tamera’ singer should be on most longshot bettors list for action.
Finally, sports bettors are wagering on who will win Song of the Year.
Song of the Year
- Cardigan – Taylor Swift -125
- Don’t Start Now – Dua Lipa +300
- Black Parade – Beyonce +500
- I Can’t Breathe – H.E.R. +800
- Everything I Wanted – Billie Eilish +900
- Circles – Post Malone +1000
- The Box – Roddy Ricch +1200
- If The World Was Ending – JP Saxe ft. J. Michaels +1600
While Taylor Swift’s Cardigan is understandably the favorite as the pop star has a history of cleaning out at the Grammys, there are a few longshot records sports bettors should keep an eye on.
For starters, both Black Parade by Beyonce and I Can’t Breathe by H.E.R. may gain votes due to the climate of the country in 2020.
As the many Black Lives Matter protest affected the mainstream media, as well as the music industry as a whole, politically charged records like these, could very well steal the win from Taylor. Beyonce also has a history of cleaning out at the Grammys.
An even bigger longshot song to look out for is The Box by Roddy Ricch. The California rapper’s break-out hit managed to spend multiple weeks at the number one spot, even beating out the likes of Justin Bieber in the process.
The 63rd Grammy Awards will be a night filled with multiple chances for sports bettors to win big. Legal sports betting on the Grammys can turn into a night of major gains.
