Adele Favored to Win Song of the Year
Despite being released early on in the eligibility period, Adele’s “Easy on Me” has remained a smash hit for the past year-plus and is a safe bet for Song of the Year. Its critical acclaim led to it becoming the longest-running number one song by a female artist on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 this decade and a shoe-in to win this award.
Both versions of Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well” are a solid second choice at +275, followed by Harry Styles’ “As It Was” at +600. As beloved as they were, “Easy on Me” has made more of an impact and will continue to receive heavy praise long after the Grammys are over.
Album of the Year Odds
|Adele – 30||+115|
|Beyonce – Renaissance||+180|
|Bad Bunny – Un Verano Sin Ti||+400|
|Harry Styles – Harry’s House||+400|
|Brandi Carlile – In These Silent Days||+650|
|Kendrick Lamar – Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers||+800|
|Lizzo – Special||+3500|
|ABBA – Voyage||+4500|
|Coldplay – Music of the Spheres||+5000|
|Mary J. Blige – Good Morning Gorgeous||+5000|
Adele Favored to Win Album of the Year
If “Easy on Me” winds up winning Song of the Year, it’s only academic for Adele’s “30” album to emerge victorious in this category as well. It boasts “Oh My God” and “I Drink Wine” as well and served as a successful to “25” from 2015.
“30” is only rivaled by Beyonce’s “Renaissance” at +180 in the odds and should be considered just as strong of a favorite. It will be helped by Beyonce’s newly-announced tour centered around the album and all of its additional buzz as of late.
Best New Artist of the Year Odds
|Domi & JD Beck||+3000|
Latto Favored to Win Best New Artist of the Year
Although it wasn’t nominated for Song of the Year, “Big Energy” was one of 2022’s biggest hits. Interestingly, its singer Latto was largely unknown prior to the song’s success, but winning Best New Artist would go a long way in making her more of a household name.
Latto is the best possible pick for this category with only Anitta coming close at +275. “Envolver” and “Lobby” earned her worldwide fame and caused her career to take off. Maneskin, Muni Long and Wet Long are also credible choices and make this category a bit more unpredictable than the others.
Record of the Year Odds
|Easy on Me – Adele||-110|
|As It Was – Harry Styles||+225|
|About Damn Time – Lizzo||+450|
|Break My Soul – Beyonce||+550|
|Bad Habit – Steve Lacy||+900|
|You and Me on the Rock – Brandi Carlile ft. Ludacris||+1400|
|The Heart Part 5 – Kendrick Lamar||+2500|
|Don’t Shut Me Down – ABBA||+4000|
|Good Morning Gorgeous – Mary J. Blige||+4000|
|Woman – Doja Cat||+4000|
Adele Favored to Win Record of the Year
Much like Song of the Year and Album of the Year, Record of the Year is bound to be taken home by Adele as well. “Easy on Me” has cemented its spot at the top of the odds at -100 and Harry Styles’ “As It Was” is a logical runner-up considering how popular it’s been for the past eight months.
There have been many top-notch albums throughout the last year with several of the other nominees having a fair chance at winning, but the 2023 Grammy Awards will be Adele’s to dominate, including Record of the Year.
