Goyte, Missy Higgins & Reece Mastin in Line for Aria Success

Gotye’s dream run looks set to continue with his album Making Mirrors installed as the $1.90 favourite by online bookmaker to win Album of the Year at the upcoming ARIA Awards.

Goyte ($2.80) is also the favourite to win an ARIA for Best Male Artist, but faces stiffer opposition here with Guy Sebastian ($3.25) and 360 ($4.50) close behind in the market.

In the Best Female Artist category, Missy Higgins heads the betting at $2.80, with Kimbra ($3.00), Washington ($4.50), Lanie Lanie ($5.00) and Jessic Mauboy ($9.00) rounding out the market.

“Gotye won a stack of ARIA awards last year and the market suggests he’s set to add a few more this time around, while Missy Higgins is in the box seat to add to her ARIA collection after a several year hiatus,” said’s Ben Hawes.

Reece Mastin has been opened as the $2.50 favourite to take out Song of the Year, with Justice Crew ($4.00), Timomatic ($5.00), 360 ($7.00) and Ricki-Lee ($19) among others in the market.

Boy & Bear ($2.80) and One Direction ($3.00) are favourites to respectively win the Best Group and Best International Act ARIA’s.
