The 54th Grammy Awards are just days away as the Recording Academy recognizes the top achievements from the year in music. The Grammy Awards will air on national television over CBS on Sunday February 12th at 8PM Eastern Time. We will take a look at the betting odds from some of the major award categories from the Grammys this year. The Grammy betting odds explained is as follows. If you see a plus (+) next to the odds, that means you will win the dollar amount following the plus (+) for every $100 you wager. A minus (-) next to the artist odds, means you must bet the dollar amount following the minus (-) to win $100. If there is a minus (-) next to the dollar amount it usually refers to the betting favorite for the event. The bigger the plus (+) next to the artist odds the bigger the underdog they are to win. We will be using the odds from Bovada sportsbook.
