Grammy Award Props come into focus with a little less than two weeks to go until the 2023 Grammy Awards. Bovada Vegas online sportsbook updated its numbers with some interesting changes. Let’s take a look at what has transpired over the last month, make some picks, and pin some props down.
|2023 Grammy Awards Props|
|Record Of The Year|
|Adele - Easy On Me||+100||-110|
|Harry Styles - As It Was||+150||+225|
|Beyonce - Break My Soul||+400||+550|
|Lizzo - Damn About Time||+500||+400|

|Brandi Carlile - You And Me On The Rock||+1000||+1400|
The Grammy Award Props for 2023 says welcome to another contentious Record Of The Year race. Granted, these nominations came as expected. However, odds kept shifting for some time, and this award is closer than it appears. Look at how last year went, for example. Olivia Rodrigo favored for both Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year lost out in shocking fashion to Silk Sonic’s “Leave The Door Open.”
Silk Sonic came in with very long odds at +3000 and +4000, respectively. 2022 featured some notable deviations from the norm. Do not feel sorry for Rodrigo as she won three awards out of the seven she was nominated for. The previous few years taught us some lessons on what to maybe expect for this year. Simply, do not count anything out.
Now, sales and impressive numbers do not always sway Grammy voters. There are many questions about whether Adele can pull off a win in the major categories. There is one interesting dynamic, and that boils down to Album of the Year. Beyonce is a slight favorite or co-favorite with Adele across the board. Even last year was not quite as evenly matched, and then Silk Sonic again crashed the party.
Grammy Award Props focuses on a few of these questions. Who is going to win Record of the Year? Could someone steal the thunder from Beyonce, Adele, or Harry Styles? Here at VegasBetting, our Grammy choices lie below, and a potential long shot or two.
So, Adele slots in well as Grammy Award Props go. One never truly can count out Adele, but again, there lends some concern to a few of the numbers. First, Adele now swings out on Bovada as a bigger favorite while being closer to even on MyBookie. There was a time when Song of the Year was more on Taylor Swift’s side than Adele assumed the top mantle over the past week or two.
Now, what is a little eerie is that Adele received seven nominations. Much like Olivia Rodrigo last year, Adele had some powerful numbers on her side and a wave of bettors, fans, and other experts. In the end, that mattered little to Rodrigo. The awards got spread around and unexpectedly split up. It gives us some pause. Do we perhaps make a much smaller wager on a singer who normally racks up these types of awards?
Alas, it is difficult to ignore the numbers Adele has accumulated. After all, before Flowers came out from Miley Cyrus, the British artist saw her single rack up the most streams on Spotify worldwide among all female singers in history. The impact saw her numbers rise on previous songs and albums at a rate few had ever seen. Adele, unlike Rodrigo, carries power and influence along with 15 wins in 25 nominations.
Back in December, this felt a little less than probable. On the other hand, Adele finds a way up the ladder. Sometimes it defies explanation. The hope was for some longer numbers, and there are a few options with Song of the Year (+150 on MyBookie) and Album of the Year (+175 on Bovada). We will settle for Even with Adele for Record of the Year here.
The Grammy Award Props are getting pulled by the Beyonce hype somewhat. Beyonce went from afterthought to third choice in the odds just behind Harry Styles. The artist is the top choice when it comes to Album of the Year. Beyonce lurks for Song of the Year, too, at around +800. The artist has a leading nine nominations for the 65th annual Grammy Awards.
Now, what does that all mean? The Win rate for Beyonce boils down to some luck and some unlucky moments too. Consider that the female artist now has 88 nominations along with her 28 wins. Her winning rate is not 83% like Adele (15 of 18 – remember the seven nods are included for 2023).
Yes, this figures to be somewhat of a heavy-hitter battle. Adele won her last 13 nominations. Beyonce has now been nominated eight times for Record of the Year. The fun part hones in on the award for producers, artists, and engineers. Honestly, the artists take the cake, err, credit.
For the Grammy Awards Props, picking Beyonce to win Record of the Year at +550 carries surprising plus numbers.
There are some Grammy Award Props for the longer shots. Harry Styles remains one to stay away from.
Mybookie online sportsbooks have a few wrinkles. Who could be this year’s Silk Sonic? Kendrick Lamar’s “The Heart Part V” comes in at +2500. That is an intriguing wager, and perhaps Mary J. Blige’s “Good Morning Gorgeous” at +4000. If one does not think a sweep is likely, sprinkling some dollars with diversity in mind may help.
