Bowmans.com Oddsmakers Favor Mariah To Win Major Grammy Awards
Carey, an eight-time Grammy nominee and two-time winner in 1990, has been installed by Bowmans as the favorite in three major categories. Carey is the even money pick at 1/1 to win Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "It's Like That." Second choice at 5/2 is Kelly Clarkson for "Since U Been Gone"; with Bowmans listing Sheryl Crow at 12/1 for "Good Is Good"; and Bonnie Raitt at 18/1 for "I Will Not Be Broken".
Bowmans has selected Carey the 3/2 favorite to win Album Of The Year for "The Emancipation of Mimi"; ahead of second choice Kanye West at 5/2 for "Late Registration"; and third choice Gwen Stefani at 5/1 for "Love, Angel, Music, Baby". Bowmans has made U2 the 10/1 pick for "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" and Sir Paul McCartney the 12/1 selection to win his 14th Grammy, this time for "Chaos And Creation In The Backyard".
Bowmans oddmakers also like Carey to win Record Of The Year for "We Belong Together", but feel it could be a toss-up against Green Day's "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams". Each are the 9/5 favorite, ahead of Kanye West at 3/1 for "Gold Digger"; Stefani at 7/1 for "Hollaback Girl"; and Gorillaz featuring De La Soul at 10/1 for "Feel Good Inc."
