Update:/b> We first posted betting odds for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards on January 24.

Here we are on February 11 — one day removed from the ceremony — and oddsmakers continue to favor the same artists.

Beyonce’s “Lemonade” remains the favorite to win Album Of The Year, while Adele’s “Hello” still ranks as the favorite for Record and Song Of The Year. While some pundits have begun predicting The Chainsmokers for Best New Artist, Chance The Rapper remains the favorite on the betting front.

In recent years, betting odds have represented decent — but not perfect — indicators of the final outcomes. The oddsmakers correctly predicted three of the “Big Four” races in 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012.

As of press time at 12:40PM ET on 2/11, here are Bovada’s lines for the key 2017 Grammy races:

Over the past several months, music industry analysts have speculated this year’s key Grammy Awards races would come down to Adele and Beyonce.

That line of thinking is also driving the current betting odds. Oddsmakers and gambling experts believe Adele and Beyonce will collectively win three of the “Big Four” awards.

Current odds have Beyonce’s “Lemonade” taking home the Album Of The Year trophy; Adele’s “25” is considered second-most likely to win.

Adele’s “Hello,” meanwhile, represents the favorite in the Record and Song Of The Year categories. Beyonce’s “Formation” is second-most likely to win those trophies.

Chance The Rapper is pegged as the favorite to win Best New Artist, the one “Big Four” category for which neither Adele nor Beyonce is eligible. The Chainsmokers represent the #2 option in that category.

In recent years, the odds have been solid — but not perfect — in predicting the key races.

Oddsmakers correctly predicted 3/4 “Big Four” Races in 2016 (incorrectly favoring “Blank Space” over “Thinking Out Loud” for Song Of The Year). They also went three-for-four in 2015 (incorrectly favoring “Beyonce” over “Morning Phase” for Album Of The Year), 2014 (incorrectly favoring “The Heist” over “Random Access Memories” for Album Of The Year), 2013 (incorrectly favoring “We Are Young” over “Somebody That I Used To Know” for Record Of The Year) and 2012 (incorrectly favoring Nicki Minaj over Bon Iver for Best New Artist).

How will they fare last year? Here are their current guesses — we’ll provide an update as the February 12 ceremony draws closer:
