So, as a handful of you may have noticed, the shortlist for the Mercury Prize was announced yesterday. By Lauren Laverne and everything. But what, I hear you ask, are the odds currently being offered by those only slightly evil bookies with regards who might win? Well, these are the odds being offered by Ladbrokes as I write this:

Adele – 21 (6/1)
Anna Calvi – Anna Calvi (6/1)
Elbow – Build A Rocket Boys! (25/1)
Everything Everything – Man Alive (16/1)
Ghostpoet – Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam (12/1)
Gwilym Simcock – Good Days At Schloss Elmau (20/1)
James Blake – James Blake (6/1)
Katy B – On A Mission (12/1)
King Creosote & Jon Hopkins – Diamond Mine (14/1)
Metronomy – The English Riviera (8/1)
PJ Harvey – Let England Shake (2/1)
Tinie Tempah – Disc-Overy (18/1)
