For the most part, Grammy Awards betting odds have not changed since they launched in December. Some lines may have changed slightly, but the initial frontrunners remained the betting favorites for Music’s Biggest Night.
A noteworthy change did, however, occur Tuesday. Taylor Swift’s “exile (featuring Bon Iver)” pulled narrowly ahead of Ariana Grande & Lady Gaga’s “Rain On Me” as the frontrunner for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
When the odds first launched, the MyBookie website listed “Rain On Me” as the most likely winner with +150 odds. “Exile” narrowly trailed at +180.
Weeks later, the “exile” odds improved to +160. Tuesday, they moved up to +125, thrusting “exile” to the top of the heap. “Rain On Me” is still available at +150.
Granted, the difference between +125 and +150 is hardly massive. Oddsmakers still, for all intents and purposes, remain torn between the two star-studded collaborations.
Those who feel one of the other nominees will win, meanwhile, could take advantage of some very favorable odds. BTS’ “Dynamite” remains +400, while Justin Bieber’s “Intentions (featuring Quavo)” (+700) and J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny & Tainy’s “Un Die (One Day)” (+900) have even longer odds.
