Since odds for the 2021 Grammy Awards first launched, Megan Thee Stallion has remained a clear favorite to win the Best New Artist prize.

Hours remain until Sunday night’s ceremony, and she still has the strongest odds.

Bovada presently lists Megan as a -250 betting favorite to win. The odds are not as strong as they were at the start of the campaign, but for an 8-artist race, a -250 listing still reflects considerable betting confidence. Per that line, one would have to risk $250 just to win $100 on the bet.

With odds of +250 each, Doja Cat and Phoebe Bridgers are also in the mix. The other five artists are considered massive long shots, with odds of +2500 or longer.

The latest Bovada lines follow:

Megan Thee Stallion -250
Doja Cat +250
Phoebe Bridgers +350
Kaytranada +2500
Noah Cyrus +2500
D Smoke +3300
Ingrid Andress +3500
Chika +7000

The betting favorite has won at seven of the past ten ceremonies.

2020: Billie Eilish (winner)
2019: H.E.R. (did not win)
2018: Alessia Cara and SZA had equal odds (Alessia Cara was the winner)
2017: Chance The Rapper (winner)
2016: Meghan Trainor (winner)
2015: Sam Smith (winner)
2014: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (winner)
2013: fun. and Frank Ocean had equal odds (fun. was the winner)
2012: Nicki Minaj (did not win)
