Our Grammy Experts have weighed in with their predictions as to what disc will take home the top Grammy this Sunday.

Four of them favor "The Heist" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis while two are touting "Red by 2010 champ Taylor Swift ("Fearless") and one opts for Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories." 

That support gives this hot new duo leading odds of 5/6 to win Album of the Year while Swift ranks second with odds of 12/5 and Daft Punk is in third at 11/1. 

As neither of the other two nominees -- "Good Kid, M.A.D.D City" by Kendrick Lamar and "The Blessed Unrest" by Sara Bareilles -- has any first place votes, they each have odds of 100/1 to win. 

Those backing the bid by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are: 
Glenn Gamboa (Newsday)
Edna Gunderson (USA Today)
Tom O'Neil (Gold Derby)
Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby)

In Swift's corner are:
Phil Gallo (Billboard)
Nekesa Moody (AP)

And Lyndsey Parker (Yahoo! Music) likes the sound of Daft Punk's disc.
