The 61st Annual Grammy Awards will take place tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET to award the some of the top musical performers of the past year. Some of the biggest names in the music industry including Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Cardi B and Childish Gambino will take to the carpet as nominees for this year's ceremony in Los Angeles. We break down the odds and the best bets for the event. 

Last year featured its share of surprises with Bruno Mars winning Song of the Year (That’s What I Like), Record of the Year (24K Magic), and Album of the Year (24K Magic), despite not being the favorite in any category. So don't necessarily expect the favorites to win, especially if the faves are in the hip-hop genre which has never won a Grammy for best record or song and last won for best album 15 years ago.

Keep in mind that each book might feature slightly different odds for this event.
