There was no Adele-like landslide at Sunday night's 55th annual Grammy Awards, where the hardware was pretty evenly distributed among a variety of new generation pop, rock and hip-hop stars.
The big four golden gramophones were spread around between [article id="1701730"]Album of the Year winners Mumford & Sons,[/article] and Fun., who snagged [article id="1701721"]Best New Artist[/article] and Song of the Year for "We Are Young," as well as Gotye, who took [article id="1701748"]Record of the Year[/article] for "Somebody That I Used to Know."
Okay, so Fun., Frank Ocean, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Mumford failed to pull off a sweep, despite their half dozen nominations each. But if you put down your bets based on what oddsmaking experts at [article id="1701595"]Bovada predicted[/article] before Sunday's broadcast, you might have walked away happy.
On the winning side, they nailed it with their Album of the Year pick, with Mumford paying off at 2/5 and Song of the Year, where they had Fun. the prohibitive faves at 5/4 over Carly Rae Jepsen, Kelly Clarkson, Ed Sheeran and Miguel.
Of course, they can't get them all right, which explains why they blew it a bit with Record of the Year, where they had Fun. at 3/2 favorites over Gotye at 7/4.
They were on the fence for Best New Artist, where they put Fun. and Ocean in a dead-heat at 7/4. But with Fun taking the crown, that means the Bovada folks had the kind of results that would make any high-roller happy.
