Justin Timberlake is the man to beat at the Grammys according to our racetrack odds. He's likely to earn nominations in three categories in the general field – Album, Record, and Song of the Year – with wins projected in two of those races: Album ("The 20/20 Experience") and Song ("Mirrors").

"Mirrors" ranks second for Record of the Year, behind summer hit "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell. That will likely be the only win or nomination for Thicke in the general field: he ranks sixth for Song of the Year and 16th for Album.

Taylor Swift's latest effort, "Red," already made an impression last year when its lead-off single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," picked up a nod for Record of the Year. This year the rest of the album is eligible to compete, and predictors are betting on her to return to the Album race, which she won in 2009 for "Fearless." She's also among likely contenders for Song of the Year for "I Knew You Were Trouble."

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are likely to show up in three general-field categories: Album ("The Heist") and Song of the Year ("Same Love"), as well as a win for Best New Artist.

The hip-hop duo will have to hold off 17-year-old New Zealander Lorde in the New Artist race. She recently had a breakthrough hit with "Royals," which will earn her additional bids for Record and Song.

Also expected to earn multiple bids is French EDM duo Daft Punk, among the top five contenders for Album ("Random Access Memories") and Record ("Get Lucky").

Bruno Mars earned Album, Record, and Song bids two years ago for his first album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans," and he'll be back in all three categories, respectively, for his sophomore disc, "Unorthodox Jukebox," and its single "Locked Out of Heaven."
