"Record of the Year" is a toss up between three songs that would pay close to $20 for every $10 bet.  These include Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me", Beyonce's "Halo" and King Leon's "Use Somebody", which is actually the slight +150 favorite, paying $15 for every $10 bet.

Nekesa Mumbi Moody of the Associated Press says "'Halo' was a great anthem, but when you think of Beyoncé songs that defined 2009, you think ‘Single Ladies.' ‘I Gotta Feeling' is a better bet, but it's also probably one of the weakest Peas songs. Swift's ‘You Belong With Me' has more momentum, but she'll split the vote with Lady Gaga and Beyoncé, so the Kings of Leon benefit."

While Moody suggests that "I Gotta Feeling" was one of the Black Eyed Peas weakest songs, it was also one of the biggest songs ever to grace the Billboard charts, 14 weeks on top to be exact.  

"You Belong With Me" was the favorite to win "Song of the Year" with Beyonce's "Single Ladies" a close second.

But "Use Somebody" (paying 3/1 odds in this category) could pull off an upset, according to Moody.

"Until Beyoncé stops writing with a team, she's not likely to win a song of the year nod. ‘Poker Face' is too edgy for voters, and ‘Pretty Wing'" too urban. Swift's song is likely to be seen as too lighthearted. ‘Use Somebody' is both gritty and romantic, which will put it over the top."

Taylor Swift's album "Fearless" was an even bigger favorite with odds of -120.  Lady Gaga, who was all the rage this year, had odds that would pay out $75 for every $10 bet should her "The Fame" album win in this category.  "The END" by the Black Eyed Peas would pay $30 for every $10 bet.

"Best New Artist" had MGMT as the favorite. 

"Use Somebody" would pay out $30 for every $10 bet for "Best Rock Song". 

The Grammy Awards do receive some betting action but it is the granddaddy of them all, the Oscars, that is the single most bet on nonsporting event of the year.  In fact, many online gambling websites consider it among the top 5 most bet on events including sports.
