Adele set for Mercury Prize glory!
2011 is definitely becoming Adele's year, with William Hill offering 3/1 that she manages to land the Mercury Music Prize this year.
The 3/1 is the shortest priced early favourite since 2006 when the Arctic Monkeys were seen as certainties.
Other contenders include James Blake and Jessie J at 6/1 and Hurts at 8/1.
"2011 looks all but certain to be remembered as Adele's year and certainly the odds suggest that the Mercury Prize could well find its way onto her mantle piece," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize: 3/1 Adele, 6/1 James Blake, 6 /1 Jessie J, 8/1 Hurts, 12/1 Noah & The Whale, 14/1 Tinie Tempahm, 20/1 Elbow, 25/1 Radiohead, 25/1 Portico Quartet, 25/1 Glasvegas, 33/1 White Lies, 40/1 British Sea Power
