Jack The Pot
According to AnyBets.com, 69% of punters predict the international pop diva Sheryl Crow will win the award for her performance of The First Cut is the Deepest at odds 1:1.25 US dollars. And 79% believe that the category winner will be at the ceremony to accept the award with 37% predicting that she will be wearing a black or grey outfit. Punters who have backed that the winning artist will not be present will win a whopping US$22.92 per US$1 bet placed.|
For Best Album, most bettors seem to think hip-hop artist Usher will win for Confessions, holding 63% of the money placed in the category. Unless the pendulum swings before betting closes, highest dividends in this category will be paid for bets on Kanye West's 'The College Dropout' taking just 3% of the betting pool.
John Mayer's Daughter is currently the favourite with 58% of the money placed for Best Song. C. Smith and Kanye West are the long shots in that category for 'Jesus Walks' - a US$1 bet would net a US$14.30 dividend.
