The Brit Awards 2007 betting
Tonight’s Brit Award show, hosted by Russell Brand, will doubtless bring with it the usual celebrity debauchery and mischief, especially considering it's Valentine’s Day. With it also being the first Brit Awards to be screened live since 1989, it should prove to be essential viewing.
The tightest race for one of the big awards seems to be that of ‘Best British Album’. Snow Patrol and Arctic Monkeys are joint favourites at 6/4 with Paddy Power, with their albums Eyes Open and Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not respectively.
The other nominees and outsiders are Muse’s Black Holes & Revelations at 7/2, Back to Black by Amy Winehouse at 7/1 and Lily Allen’s Alright Still at 22/1.
The battle for ‘Best British Group’ is dominated by rock bands. Muse are favourites at 5/4 with Snow Patrol at 2/1. The finest musical talent to come out of Sheffield since Joe Cocker, the Arctic Monkeys, may be worth a look at 10/3. Razorlight are further out at 7/1 with Kasabian at rank outsiders at 12/1.
The award for ‘Best British Single’ see’s a blast from the past installed as favourites. Take That’s comeback single, Patience, is 8/11 favourite with Paddy Power and Snow Patrol complete a hat-trick of nominations in the big awards, with their anthemic Chasing Cars at 6/1 with William Hill.
James Morrison is clear favourite at 2/5 to win the ‘Best British Solo Male Artist’ award, with Lemar at 4/1 and Paolo Nutini at 5/1 expected to be his closest challengers.
‘Best British Solo Female Artist’ is a bit tighter with Corinne Bailey Rae and Amy Winehouse thought to be the favourites. Corinne Bailey Rae is favourite at 5/6 followed by Amy Winehouse at 13/8. If you fancy a long-shot, Lily Allen may be worth a punt as 7/2.
Performances on the night will include those from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Scissor Sisters, The Killers with Oasis expected to close the show.
