You can pretty much put money on anything these days, and the Grammy Awards are no exception. The gambling website Paddy Power has odds for the four major awards being handed out Sunday night.

The safe bets look to be Beyonce and Sam Smith. Here are the odds:

Album of the Year

Beyonce - Beyonce - 11/10

Sam Smith - In The Lonely Hour - 15/8

Ed Sheehan - X - 7/2

Beck - Morning Phase - 6/1

Pharrell Williams - Girl - 10/1

Record of the Year

Sam Smith - Stay With Me - 5/6

Sia - Chandelier - 3/1

Taylor Swift - Shake It Off - 4/1

Iggy Azalea (ft. Charli XCX)- Fancy - 5/1

Meghan Trainor - All About That Bass - 12/1

Song of the Year

Jimmy Napes, William Phillips and Sam Smith - Stay With Me - 4/7

Hozier - Take Me To Church - 3/1

Sia and Jesse Shatkin - Chandelier - 10/3

Max Martin, Shellback and Taylor Swift - Shake It Off - 9/1

Kevin Kadish and Meghan Trainor - All About That Bass - 14/1

Best New Artist

Sam Smith - 1/14

Bastille - 9/1

Iggy Azelea - 10/1

Brandy Clark - 12/1

Haim - 16/1

So Sam Smith, at least according to these odds, is expected to sweep three of the four major categories while Queen B is favored for Album of the Year. But you won't see much of a return on betting the favorites, especially on Smith for Best New Artist (a $10 bet would only net a 71 cent profit).
