Mercury Prize Announced Tonight, Odds Updated

The books have been closed on betting for the winner of this year's Mercury Music Prize. Who do you want to win? Franz Ferdinand are still the favorites to win while The Streets’ A Grand Don’t Come For Free remains in second place. The darkhorse bet comes from former longshot Who Killed The Zutons? by Liverpool's famed five-piece The Zutons.

UK bookmakers Ladbrokes' spokesman Warren Lush said on NME, "Money points to glory for Franz Ferdinand but the biggest gamble has to be on The Zutons. The Liverpool band’s odds have been slashed from 14/1 into 3/1. The big money has been for Who Killed The Zutons?. If the Liverpool band win it would be a poor result for us and a case of who killed the bookmakers."

The final odds for all you aspiring Pete Roses are:

Franz Ferdinand – 9/4
The Streets – 2/1
The Zutons – 3/1
Amy Winehouse – 8/1
Keane – 8/1
Snow Patrol – 10/1
Basement Jaxx – 12/1
Joss Stone – 12/1
Belle and Sebastian – 16/1
Jamelia – 16/1
Robert Wyatt – 25/1
Ty – 25/1
