Here are the betting odds on the Choice Music Prize this year


It’s been a good few years since any of the bookmakers listed the Choice Music Prize for Irish album of the year as one of their betting options so here’s a bit of novelty.

The 10 shortlisted albums are currently available to bet on at Boylesports at the following odds:

Pillow Queens – In Waiting  – 5/4

Fontaines D.C. – A Hero’s Death – 9/4

Denise Chaila – Go Bravely   – 5/1

Niamh Regan – Hemet – 7/1

Silverbacks – Fad – 7/1

JyellowL – 2020 DIvision – 10/1

Ailbhe Reddy – Personal History – 11/1

Róisín Murphy – Róisín Machine – 12/1

Nealo – All The Leaves Are Falling – 14/1

Bitch Falcon – Staring at Clocks – 20/1

Pillow Queens and Fontaines are clear favourites but there’s also some nice punts all the way through the field. As we know with the Choice, it can often have a surprising outcome so it’s not always the favourite to win.

If you are thinking about betting, please do so responsibly.

The winner be announced on Thursday 4th March 2021 in a broadcast on RTÉ Player and RTÉ 2FM from 12-3pm on the day.

Speaking of the Choice, next week’s podcast will feature 5 former judges talking about all 10 albums and picking a winner. Maybe. Sort of. You’ll see.
