Upcoming Match-ups

2015 Grammy Awards Odds (UPDATED)

The nominees for the 2015 Grammy Awards have been announced. Looking at the contenders, we find lots of new faces including the soulful Sam Smith and the proudly zaftig Meghan Trainor.

Of course, the usual suspects are also back with veterans Miranda Lambert and Beyoncé making appearances on the list, and T-Swift, U2, and John Legend garnering nominations, as well.

The 57th Annual Grammy Awards show isn’t until February 8, but that just means we have lots of time to debate and discuss the nominees.

Is your favorite ditty going to earn Song of the Year honors? Who’s going to be tapped as Best New Artist? Will the perpetually over-looked Ryan Adams finally earn a Grammy? (Probably not.)

Below, we set the odds on all of the major Grammy categories.
