|Sexy black is the winning dress shade for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at this year's Grammy Awards (Los Angeles, February 13), according to public opinion on international celebrity pool betting site AnyBets.com.|
Fashion houses Chanel and Versace agree that an outfit in black is a winning choice, and so do 37% of the players at AnyBets.com. According to Chanel on Old Bond Street, London, pastel green, salmon with beige, gold, and black and white are also hot colours for a show-stopping Grammy outfit.
69% of punters predict international pop diva, Sheryl Crow, will win the award for her performance of The First Cut is the Deepest at odds 1:1.25. And 79% have bet that the category winner will be in attendance to accept the award. Punters that believe the winner won't be there will win a whopping £22.92 per £1 bet placed.

For Best Album, most bettors seem to think hip-hop artist Usher will win for Confessions, holding 63% of the money placed in the category. Unless the pendulum swings before betting closes, highest dividends in this category will be paid for bets on Kanye West's The College Dropout taking just 3% of public opinion.
John Mayer's Daughter is currently the favourite with 58% of the money placed on AnyBets.com for Best Song. C. Smith and Kanye West are the long shots in that category for Jesus Walks - a US$1 bet would net a US$14.30 dividend.
'The Grammy Awards offer fantastic opportunities for customers to win some big money. There are a small number of nominees in each category so the odds are relatively good,' said a spokesperson for Anybets.com.
