Oddsmakers pick ‘Lemonade’ to win 2017 Grammy Awards Album of the Year

TAGs: Bodog, Grammy Awards

If there is one thing that we’re sure about Beyonce, it’s that she rarely loses. But her supremacy is about to get tested—again—this weekend at the 59th Grammy Awards, because let’s face it, Queen Bey is up against some competition.

Oddsmakers pick ‘Lemonade’ to win 2017 Grammy Awards Album of the Year“Lemonade” is arguably one of Beyonce’s most successful albums—and this is coming from someone who’s considered to be the most nominated and the second-most awarded woman in Grammy history with 20 awards and 62 nominations, respectively. So it shouldn’t come as a shock that “Lemonade” is a betting favorite.

At online sportsbook Bodog, Beyonce has 1/2 odds to win Album of the Year for “Lemonade.” Adele, however, might give her a run for her money as “25” is also up for the award with 2/1 chances of winning. Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” has 9/1 odds of winning, while Drake’s “Views” has 15/1 odds, and Sturgill Simpson’s “A Sailors Guide to the Earth” has 22/1 odds.

Meanwhile, the Best New Artist Award has an interesting mix of nominees. Chance The Rapper is the frontrunner with 4/9 odds, but The Chainsmokers are intriguing at 5/2. Rounding up the nominees are Maren Morris (7/1), Anderson Paak (18/1), and Kelsea Ballerini (20/1).

Things are about to get interesting in the Record of the Year category. Adele, also not a stranger to the Grammys with 10 awards, has a 1/5 shot to take home more trophies thanks to her widely popular single, “Hello.” Beyonce’s “Formation” has 5/1 odds, while Rihanna and Drake’s “Work” has 9/1 odds. Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” and Twenty One Pilots’ “Stressed Out” can be considered long shots with 15/1 and 25/1 odds, respectively.

It might sound the same, but unlike the Record of the Year award, which goes to the performer and production team, Song of the Year is received by the composers of the song. In this category, Adele’s “Hello” is also a favorite with 1/5 odds of winning, followed by Beyonce’s “Formation” with 5/1. Closely behind is Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” with 9/1, while Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” has 12/1 odds and Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” has 33/1 odds of winning.

The 59th annual Grammy Awards will be held on Feb. 12, 2017 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
