    Who's gonna win the Mercury Music Prize tonight?

    I reckon Foals might upset the odds....

    I reckon The XX have a better chance than Foals

    bookies have weller as favourite,which probably means he wont win-its very often someone new and obscure-I have a sneaking feeling for mumford and sons or XX as a total outsider.

    Or even I Am Kloot

    The XX have been favourites for weeks up until a late run of Paul Weller. Mumford and Sons is a good value bet

    Personally I reckon its on par with Elbows Seldom Seen Kid. I think they've got a good chance. Apparently Weller became bookies favourite because of an unprecedented number of bets made in Birmingham. Strange

    what actually are the odds on this? might have a punt on mumfords if I can get 4s or better

    OP I think you are right. Spanih Sahara is a superb rtrack.

    Wouldn't say they are the best band/artist from the nominations but Mercury Prize always gos against the norm.

    Mumford @ 11/1 on Betfair.

    they had Weller as favourite because there was a run on him on Friday, in the space of an hour William Hill had received a high volume of bets @20/1 which resulted in them carrying over £20,000 on him willing it

    can't find the section on betfair to bet on the mercury prize!

    The xx?

    I hope all they've won is a cocktail of gin and mercury that's to be drank immediately whilst Jools Holland films it for Youtube.

    I'd watch it.

    for me it would be I am kloot..top album by a great band
