PJ Harvey wins Mercury Prize

PJ

The bookies were right. Guardian posted the following this morning:

The favourite for tonight’s Mercury prize among bookmakers remains PJ Harvey, with Ladbrokes and Paddy Power offering odds of 5/4, William Hill 6/5 and Bet 365 an impressive 9/5 that the Dorset-born singer will take home the award for her album Let England Shake. According to the bookies, Harvey’s main competition comes from self-titled albums by Anna Calvi and James Blake, with some shops also backing Adele‘s 21.

Ladbrokes gives Calvi, Adele and Blake 4/1, 5/1 and 7/1 odds, respectively; William Hill offers 7/1, 6/1 and 5/1; and Paddy Power puts them at 6/1, 6/1 and 13/2. Although a couple of outfits are giving similar odds to Metronomy‘s The English Riviera, others have relegated them to the second tier of nominees, which includes Ghostpoet, King Creosote and Katy B.

Congrats to PJ Harvey. Maybe next time James.
