What are the odds?

Millions will tune in to the 54th annual Grammy Awards Sunday to see who becomes music royalty and racks up the most gold gramophone trophies by the end of the night.

While many fans will be rooting for their favorite singer or popular hits to be recognized, Wynn Las Vegas Director of Race and Sports Operations Johnny Avello has already calculated the odds — and by his numbers Adele will take the coveted top spot for winning the most awards Sunday night.

The British singing powerhouse’s odds of winning the top spot for Record of the Year are 2-to-3, signaling she may beat other nominees Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Bon Iver and Mumford and Sons for her hit, “Rolling in the Deep.”

Adele's odds for Album of the Year (1-to-2), Song of the Year (2-to-5) and Best Pop Solo Performance (6-to-5) are all in her favor.

Second in odds for Album of the Year is Lady Gaga with the odds stacked at 9-to-5 for her second studio album “Born This Way.” And with even odds, Gaga, Jay-Z and Kanye West are poised to take home the gold for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Rap Album for the rap duo’s “Watch the Throne.”

Chris Brown has 2-to-1 odds of winning Best R&B Album for “F.A.M.E.”

DJ Skrillex, a celebrity in the Las Vegas nightlife scene, is nominated for Best New Artist, but Avello is only giving him a 50-to-1 shot.

The odds, however, are only for entertainment purposes, so you’ll just have to watch the real thing to know who wins. The 54th annual Grammy Awards will air at 8 p.m. on CBS.
