PJ Harvey Odds Favorite To Win Mercury Prize Tonight

    Later today, Britain will crown the winner of this year’s Mercury Prize, the award for best British album. If you’re a betting person, according to British oddsmakers, the smart money is on Adele and PJ Harvey. We learned a few things from this report in the Guardian: Apparently British people will bet (or at least set lines) on who will win music awards, which is pretty awesome. Like, do Vegas oddsmakers have bets on who will win Best New Artist at the VMAs? They probably do. But in case you’re in Britain, the odds are at 9/5 for Harvey, which isn’t that enticing, though it’s probably good for Harvey. The smart money would be on James Blake, who has odds of 13/2 from one betting house. Read up on the odds here.
