There is a battle brewing between Adele and Beyonce in Grammy betting markets, but can the British superstar take the honors?
She had an incredible year after releasing “30”, which is the second favorite for Album of the Year, but Easy on Me is the -125 favorite to win Record of the Year.
Let’s check the latest Entertainment odds, news, and predictions. We’ve got plenty of GRAMMY Awards lines for you to consider.
The Sweep is Possible
It’s common to see an artist win multiple awards at the Grammys, but a sweep would be a landmark event.
Adele, who we believe had one of the better albums in 2022, is a live chance of sweeping in all the major categories, so she could be worth backing at the sportsbook.
Her hardest task will be beating Beyonce for Album of the Year. Beyonce released Renaissance, which is the -165 favorite to win. However, we didn’t think it was a groundbreaking album, and Adele’s had more hard-hitting and popular songs.
Beating QueenB is easier said than done, but if anyone can do it, it’s Adele. There were rumors that she wouldn’t be at the event, which got promptly shut down.
“Whoever started that rumor is a (omitted), ‘cause I am going to the Grammys” Adele said. “I would never miss the Grammys. I would never be as disrespectful to the Grammys or to other artists, and whoever started that little story needs to go and touch some grass, alright? Go and get some fresh air, alright darlings?”.
The +250 for Adele to win Album of the Year is worth entertaining, especially given her odds to win Record of the Year.

‘Easy on Me’ Leads Best Song/Record Noms
Record of the Year features some solid tunes, headlined by Adele’s “Easy on Me.”
Aside from “As It Was” by Harry Styles, Easy on Me was the most recognizable song in 2022 and we’re not surprised by betting online markets being in its favor.
Regardless of your musical preference, everyone knows the hook to Easy on Me. “Go Eaaaasssssyyy on me baby” has rung out more times than we’d like to remember, so it deserves to be the -125 favorite.
We can’t see As It Was getting the nod, especially at the Grammys. The song is more popular with streaming services, as opposed to the Academy.
Adele’s also the -125 to win Song of the Year. As It Was is paying +250 and Taylor Swift’s 10-minute epic All Too Well sits comfortably at +400.
Song of the Year looks at the lyrics and performance of the song. Record of the Year looks at everything from engineering to producing.
Best Pop Solo Performance
One of the more confident betting markets for Adele backers is Best Pop Solo Performance.
We can’t see anyone beating Adele in this category. Her performance for Easy on Me is one of the best we have seen this generation, and given Adele’s popularity with the Academy, she should have this award in the bag.
There has been support for As It Was, but in terms of best pop solo performance, we feel like anyone could have sung that song and had success. Not many can produce a powerhouse performance like Easy on Me, which was Adele’s return to the limelight.
