The 65th Annual Grammy Awards: Best Bets, Picks & Predictions (2023)

The Arena in Los Angeles will host the 65th Grammy Awards on February 5th. One of the most well-known award events in the world is coming up in a matter of days, and some of the biggest names in the music industry will be there.

Beyonce received nine total nominations, making her the artist with the most in 2023. Along with her husband Jay-Z, the power couple has won 49 Grammy Awards together, and she also tied her husband for the most nominations in history this year.

Can they increase their total? Here are my predictions for the 2023 Grammy Awards, specifically for the Album of the Year and Song of the Year, where legends like Kendrick Lamar, Adele, Beyonce, and Harry Styles will compete for the coveted awards.

The 65th Annual Grammy Awards Best Bets

(Odds courtesy of FanDuel)

Album of the Year

    • Beyoncé – Renaissance (-150)
    • Adele – 30 (+250)
    • Harry Styles – Harry’s House (+400)
    • Bad Bunny – Un Verano Sin Ti (+400)
    • Brandi Carlile – In These Silent Days (+800)
    • Kendrick Lamar – Morale and the Big Steppers (+1000)
    • Lizzo – Special (+2500)
    • ABBA – Voyage (+4500)
    • Mary J. Blige – Good Morning Gorgeous (+5000)
    • Coldplay – Music of the Spheres (+5000)

Best Value Bet: 30 (+250)

You shouldn’t disregard the underdogs when making your 2023 Grammy Awards predictions, and Special by Lizzo is a decent candidate. This album’s track listing was methodically planned, which is a preference of the Recording Academy. Lizzo has also received three Grammy nominations.

But she’ll have a tough time defeating the heavyweights here. Harry Styles, Adele, and Beyonce are in a three-way competition. The early odds favored Harry Styles more, but I see another favorite.

I believe Adele to be slightly superior to Beyonce and the others. When it comes to winning Grammys, she is nearly unbeatable. Additionally, she has won each of her prior 13 nominations, which is remarkable.

Song of the Year

    • Adele – Easy on Me (-150)
    • Harry Styles – As It Was (+200)
    • Lizzo – About Damn Time (+550)
    • Beyonce – Break My Soul (+550)
    • Steve Lacy – Bad Habit (+900)
    • Brandi Carlile featuring Lucius – You and Me On the Rock (+1400)
    • Kendrick Lamar – The Heart Pt. 5 (+2500)

Best Value Bet: Easy on Me (-150)

There are many tempting options on this list, and a few that even broke records, such as Hary Styles’ “As It Was” and Adele’s “Easy on Me.” With the long odds. Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit” is also considered by some to be a sleeper in this category.

But it would be wise to pick Adele to win Song of the Year. Consider the fact that “Easy on Me” was a huge hit and demonstrated Adele’s range of abilities. The song was also up for Record of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Music Video.
