    Lock for the grammys

    This is my third lock in the entertainment world.

    My first was a couple seasons ago that a male would win american idol after paula abdula was on a talk show saying how good the guys were this year.

    My second lock was miley not suing perez for that photoshopped photo.

    Third lock..

    Justin Bieber to win best new artist

    best I have seen so far is -170

    Where can you get Bieber at -170? Bookmaker has him at -600.

    A Bieber is cash money today. But it's very juicy. Only those with big balls will cash today on Bieber.

    Bieber up to -210 at 5Dimes now.

    I was just looking at the odds for Record of the Year and Eminem is a massive favorite. I wonder if there is any chance Lady GaGa steals this one at +600?

    Bieber is -210 at Betphoenix also. The -600 at bookmaker must be a mistake.

    Bookmaker also has this at -600:

    WILL EITHER J BIEBER OR DRAKE WIN BEST NEW ARTIST? YES -600 NO +200

    So the -600 on just Bieber alone has got to be a mistake.

    artists that have been around for 20 more years than him and have a music video thats been on youtube for 8 more years than his have way way way less views.

    checking the numbers:
    his hit song baby ft ludacris has 461.5 MILLION views. (views only register once per IP address)

    in contrast:

    ludacris' second most popular video has about 50 million.
    michael jackson thriller has 82 million
    metallica enter sandman has 38 million
    eminem's most viewed video has 289 million

    im nowhere near a fan but -170, -210...these odds are ridiculously good.

    in addition to this- you always see video and images of girls falling on the ground crying and screaming......every concert sells out immediately, he just came out with a movie that looks like its about his concerts, his music gets played on white stations and black stations and pop stations. everyone that hates on him just makes him more popular, hes been on like every latenight show....

    im no bieber expert but ive done the research. this looks like a very very good pick.

    He just won the MTV away for best new artist, usually a prelude to the grammy winner

    -200ish is a STEAL

    Careful with this one. I thought the same and after some research, I found that teen artists never win this award. In fact, it almost always goes to female artists.

    Value is on Florence & The Machine @ +290

    laugh all you want but no other artist has had a MOVIE made about their life within the same year that they pump out 3 or 4 number one hits

    not to mention hes only a teenager and a movie has already been made about him

    -200 is a ******* joke if bieber doesnt win this something is fixed

    Interesting information iQon, thanks..

    So hard to bet these things but they always intrigue me

    i think i called a loser here

    i dont know shit about these awards. I figured it was all about marketing but after looking up past winners the jonas brothers lost to adele and taylor swift lost to that chick who always wears that crack addict costume, amy whinehouse. Poor capping on my part


    i read something about how drake is also up for other awards but he isnt going to win them because eminem is going to dominate, so his odds to win best new artist a little more likely. Drake was like +500 on betphoenix when I made the thread, now he is +250

    Hip hop artists never win either though. Chris Brown lost to Carrie Underwood, Kanye lost to Maroon 5 and 50 cent lost to Evanescence.

    You could always hedge. I'm not saying Bieber won't win, he still very well could, I don't know much more about this stuff than you do I just go by what the research tells me. I'm also playing Need You Now by Lady Antebellum for both Song of the Year and Record of the Year. If they win one of these im positive units being plus money in both. BOL.

    if this was based on merit, mumford and sons would win.

    it isn't based on merit, 'best new artist' is a popularity contest.
