Odds for Album of the Year Grammy Award lean strongly toward Taylor Swift’s Folklore

The opening odds for the 2021 Grammy Awards have been released, and today, we focus on the Album of the Year category. Out of eight entries, Taylor Swift’s Folklore debuted as the most probable winner, and has since sustained top placement at -250, as more sportsbooks placements are accounted for. Should she succeed, she will become the first female artist with three consecutive wins.

Coming in second is Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia, with a much lesser but still considerable +300, and both she and Swift hold dominance in several other categories. While a near-twofold difference is shown in subsequent entries – Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding and Coldplay’s Everyday Life (+650 versus +1300, respectively), that of the remaining four entries is narrow by comparison. The deluxe version of Black Pumas’ self-titled debut and Jhene Alko’s fourth album, Chilombo, tie at +2100, while Jacob Collier’s Djesse Vol. 3 and Haim’s Women in Music Pt. III do so at +2200. Overall, a fairly intense battle of emerging and established talent alike.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
