Our Grammy Experts are forecasting a near sweep for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in the General Field at Sunday's Grammys. We expect them to take home the album prize for "The Heist" and the song award for "Same Love." 

And six of the seven of us are predicting the duo to be named Best New Artist as well:
Phil Gallo (Billboard)
Glenn Gamboa (Newsday)
Edna Gunderson (USA Today)
Lyndsey Parker (Yahoo! Music) 
Tom O'Neil (Gold Derby)
Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby)

Such support gives Macklemore & Ryan Lewis leading odds of 5/6.

The lone holdout is Nekesa Moody (AP) who is predicting an upset by Ed Sheeran. He has odds of  11 to 2. 

While country newcomer Kacey Musgraves doesn't have any first place votes, she is ranked higher than the other remaining nominees -- Kendrick Lamar and James Blake -- and so has odds of 50/1 versus their 100/1.
