Eurovision is a marathon, not a sprint. And as we enter the home strait of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, Germany has hit its stride. 

Michael Schulte has been at the back of the pack, but he’s now entered the top 10. Following the semi-finals, Germany is now sixth favourite to win the contest. His odds have been halved at many bookmakers. Bet 365 has slashed his chances of winning from 50/1 to 16/1.

Another act on the move is Ireland. After five years in the wilderness, we can hear the Celtic Tiger roar again. Ryan O’Shaughnessy is now ninth favourite in the Eurovision 2018 odds. MarathonBet has moved him from 70/1 to 14/1.

Lithuania is also on the up, in fourth, with odds as low as 9/1 at 188Bet.

Today’s odds aren’t good news for Norway. Alexander Rybak had closed to second a few days ago, but Norway are now falling fast. Odds are as high as 25/1 at several bookmakers and Norway is now only seventh favourite in the odds.

Israel on the other hand has rallied. Netta has an advantageous draw in the final and her new odds reflect that. William Hill had her at 6/1 midweek. Now they’ve move her to 7/2. She’s also back in the blue across the board, meaning her odds are shortening.

Eleni Foureira from Cyprus is out in front and continues to lead. How low her odds can go is anyone’s guess as we head into the Grand Final.

A major casualty of the running order appears to be Alfred & Amaia from Spain. Handed the death slot by producers their odds are in freefall. They’ve gone from odds as low as 28/1 to odds as high as 125/1. Red across the board at bookmakers, those odds could widen further.

The United Kingdom and Serbia look like last place contenders. SuRie’s is 450/1 at at MarathonBet, while Sanja Ilic & Balkanika are 500/1 at SportingBet.

We can expect odds to shift further as commentators react to tonight’s jury final.

BREAKING NEWS: From radiotimes.com (2h ago): “WHO COULD ACTUALLY WIN EUROVISION 2018?” If we just looked at search traffic, Cyprus’s Eurovision 2018 victory (by the odds) would be far from a done deal. The powers that be at Google HQ have crunched the tech data (as you do) and come up with a list of winners based on the countries and acts that have been searched for the most by people in participating Eurovision countries online. Here’s what their Top Five looks like: 1. Israel’s Netta – tops the list and is the likely winner. 2. Norway’s Alexander Rybak, who… Read more »

I’d hazard a guess Ireland was in the top of the first semifinal results, just being announced last and this word play “We should say it TOGETHER” it occured to me after sometime, it’s like with Austria in 2014, nothing taken for granted for sure, but it smells like a dark horse here, few months ago who would have thought it figures… 🙂 It’s thrilling me, because every song might actually do well!

Simon

Who do you think will come 26th? I Would say Netherlands or UK.
Netherlands because its a horrible staging and a song that will fall flat in the shadow of Hungary . Sorry Netherlands
UK beacuse its the Azerbaijan of the final, a superbland song that no one will even remember. Sorry UK.

I hope Israel gonbs be at place 26. Its an terrible song

Just listened through the whole line-up with my dad. He has a lot of favorites, so I think I’ve converted him! The skinny: – Favorite is Cyprus, second is Czech Republic, third is France (all great picks). Also has love for Israel (but he doesn’t think they’ll win, though he used to not like it), Italy. Moldova (literally only needed to hear the beginning to know he’d like it), Slovenia (called it a pseudo-K pop song), Serbia (loves Balkan craziness, so it was right up his alley), Denmark, and Estonia. – He likes Norway, but he does agree it’s vapid.… Read more »

Who thought Ireland would be one of the frontrunners when just months back people weren’t feeling his song at all. Maybe “Together” is the second coming of “Calm After The Storm”, who knows? I’d still prefer France, Italy or Cyprus to win it (I was fond of Israel but right now I don’t see it happening) also that Ireland already had seven victories at Eurovision and I’d love to see somebody else win but I’m so happy and pleased that Ireland is doing so well after 4 years of not even making it to the finals.

Call me deluded but I think Ireland can snatch away with the win. I got that aura around him that winning feeling. And it’s authentic. If he wins I wouldn’t mind it, the best winner since Måns

Let me just say – if the unbelievable happens and Ireland wins Eurovision 2018 (or even finishes second or third), this will prove that not a single Eurofan has any idea how this show works, that we should stop following wiwibloggs and ESCunited and all commentators – because they too have no idea, and that we should certainly not look at the betting odds in the months leading up to the competition. It will prove that this competition is completely built on momentum and that that momentum is something that picks up only after the two semis – and anything… Read more »

That would be great actually, esc should be unpredictable

The other countries always bullied Ireland and teased Ireland on Wiwibloggs. But now Ireland is rising and leading the way to show that bullies and homophobia and haters don’t truly win. So happy for Ireland and proving people wrong!

I am really tired of these boring kind of love song lyrics, but there seem to be a winner hype around them – I’ll forever wonder why: “We were drifting like two icebergs out on the ocean I was doing all I could to keep you close There were troubles in the water You swore it was nothing You said that we would always stay afloat Why would true love, look me in the eye and lie, lie?

Anita people like you laughed at Ireland for sending another ballad but Ireland stayed true to its soul. Now they are standing up again. They did it in their own good time. Bottom line, people should ignore negative people like you.

There is no way Serbia will finish last, with secure points from Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia…10 or 12…they?ll have atleast 70 points in total only from televoting, with lets say 5-10 from jurors….enough for 20th place, not for bottom last. So that means UK will end up last ;(

Simon
Guest

you know that is not the way they count televoting anymore :)? If all the balcan jurys vote like that they will be disqualified. The Montenegro and Macedonia jury have been it before. They have a notarius from EBU in each jury. UK will come low yes. Buti ts because of the song. Its mainstream as Azerbaikjan was and it doestnt look good for UK.

Leo
Guest

What are you talking about? The televoting is still counted the same way as before.
And juries don’t get qualified for this. There has to be real evidence or all the jury members having the same top 5 or something. If they all rate Serbia in their top ten on different positions and it then gets points from all the former yougoslavian juries, no one will get qualified.

If Cyprus wins i would be really happy for the country, the song is not really my favorite, but the stage performance is incredible! My favorite is France!!! VOTE FOR FRANCE Y’ALL!!!

Efi

Sorry but this year all people may vote for Cyprus. It is the deserved winner. The best ever eurovision performance, We could vote for France next year. We love France of course but this year all people say one word “Fuegooooo”

Alexx

People will say something to you beginning with “F” but it won’t be Fuego.

opinion maker

Ireland is going to do really well tomorrow!!

Efi
Guest

Yes because it is before Eleni and Fuego. All people wait for this and Ireland is very lucky. It may give 12points to Cyprus for this gift. Otherwise, Ireland would go 10-20 positions you know that.

Billy Rice
Guest

Ireland’s 12 votes will go to Lithuania
The country is full of Lithuanians and there is no Poland to vote for

No name

Not a chance Ireland will give 12 to Cyprus, the jury 12 will probably go to Estonia (or one of the Scandinavians) and without a doubt the televote 12 will go to Lithuania

Alexx

I think whoever impresses Ireland on the night will get Ireland’s vote. Ireland votes tend to differ every year.

Mateo
Guest
I’d love Germany to win. The song is about something everyone can relate to without being a generic love song. Michael sings it well and the emotion is there at every performance. Ireland has found their gimmick a gay couple dancing and a singer singing 90% of the song in falsetto voice (difficult to do but also not the most pleasant thing to have to listen to). Australia reminded me of a Dutch entry from way back. Linda Wagemakers another little lady with a big voice in a sparkly dress that went jumping around the stage too much to get… Read more »

Why do people favor cyprus over israel? Eleni’s preformance abilities are amazing but the song is so generic and forgettable (mark my words in 4-5 months no one will be listening to it). Plus her dance routine is basically beyonce, nothing we haven’t seen before.

Gtyhygf

Haven’t you already post that question, under a different nickname? Oh weel I can anwer you again:.. For me personally: I got tired and bored of Isreal’s songs after a few listenings, live performance is not that great, it pretends to be more than it really is (a nice upbeat song), they created some hype in the media saying it is about metoo movement, but then they chickened out of it and now they are saying it is about empowerment. Plus Israel is much more influential in EBU than Cyprus, hosting preparties and all. Also Israel has already won 3… Read more »

Actually, Neta has always said it is about empowerment.

So why everyone was saying it’s about metoo movement after the song came out?

People vote for her because her song is fun

And technically The Cheetah Girls already had a song called Fuego but sung with a Latina. How does that song reflect Cyprus culture?

Mascha

Well, I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania and Germany touched me the most (Germany is my country and I am actually proud of my country again, for the first time since Lena). On the other hand, I really love Fuego. I feel like all of the songs could win. Estonia for the reason, that this song actually sounds like a winner song and she is, no blame, the best singer. Hungary, just because they are my babies and they are the most different with Elina. Lithuania and Germany, because I actually cried when I heard… Read more »

I think in a year where the songs are so close everybody should take the chance to vote for a dark horse that touches you. It’s great when you have a song and artists that you really love and support and in this close competition can win and you help creating this surprise. And the dark horses this year are all very good songs.

As of now, Ireland has climbed in the betting odds to 3rd place
1. Cyprus
2. Israel
3. Ireland

I suspect that is a greek person. I dont understand why they are the ones who goes crazy the most. maybe there are something in the water in Greece. Go Ireland:) Im mad i didnt bet money on Ireland. It has grown on me so much. Yes the dancers are good but its the song that has grown on me:) there are many stupid people who say you vote for the dancers. Who does that. I vote for the song:)

So, who wants to remind Efi that last year Kostov was 1st in the odds, and surprise surprise, they didn’t win, Jesus, stop it

Efi

Cyprus is not a favourite. It’s the ultimate favourite. 1/1 odds. Don’t compare different cases. There is no song which reached 1/1 or 11/10. It will be the easiest win.

Jim
Guest

cyprus wont win imo, the song isnt that good

Jay
Guest

At least right now, the best odds for Eleni are 6/5, the exact same as for Kostov last year. And most betting sites actually have her odds becoming worse.

Héctor

Since the very first moment I knew Germany was going to end in the top 10. I’mvery glad people are finally appreciating it! About Ireland, I don’t really know what’s going on, average and boring song, not bad, but shouldn’t even have qualified. It is just the gay dancers and you know it. Anyway, every country is playing its cards. Hope Spain can recover after that running order (thanks Christer Bjorkman and Ola Sand, sure you would do the same with your -lovely- countries) and the “failed” staging.

Héctor

Since you write like some pertubated guy, I shouldn’t be answering you, but just for your knowledge I’m able to understand every single English word from every single song even if English isn’t my mother tongue, so saying “I don’t know what’s going on” it’s just a way of speaking. And hey, I don’t like Israel neither, so just stay away and go seek some asylum for you.

Harper

When I look back at Eurovision 2018, I will also think of Israel first, not Cyprus, and for that reason they deserve to win.

Gtyhygf
Guest

Well that’s you, but there are millions of other people in Europe, and there are a lot of great songs in different genres to choose from this year. And it’s a song contest, not a ‘who managed to get most hype by the weird vidio on youtube’ contest

Weißbrot

I think the top 5 will be like this: 1.Cyprus 2.Hungary 3.Lithuania 4.Ireland 5.Czechia or Israel …. A few days ago everybody would have said I’m crazy but right now everything is possible.

Efi
Guest

Yessss i agree!!!! you are right for the first place !!!!!!

Weißbrot
Guest

But don’t be angry if it won’t be 1st, we have maaaany Songs to choose from. Everybody could make it, but Cyprus is the most likely to me right now.

Simon
Guest

I heard Greece want to Quit Eurovision because they lost. Netherlands lost 8 times in a row. Im not sure this is a competition for Greece. They seem to angry to be in it. Maybe join Turkvision instead?

Weißbrot
Guest

That’s pathetic. San Marino qualified one time and they’re still trying it year after year. Greece only missed the final twice now, they can’t complain actually.

Gtyhygf
Guest

I don’t know if it’s pathetic, it’s actually wise, there are certain countries that are heavily promoted in esc, and besides you have to put a lot of money in a succesful song (vdeo, staging, promotion, etc). And if you dont want to spend that kind of money whats the point in being last positions year after year

Simon
Guest

So how do you explain Ireland and Lithuania this year then? no big staging, not a big promo tour, no big props. Just a good song:) Greece just stood they with some clouds and sang bad. I was certain Greece would miss.

Gtyhygf
Guest

Yes, but that’s the unpredictable side of Eurovision, most of the succesful songs need that money to shine.. but you are right, sometimes just sheer talent and good composition win

Alexx

I praise Portugal because I think they have finally brought the Eurovision closer to a singing competition again. All that crappy Europop mixes were getting old fast.

Grecofan

no one said that!!
it is just our pathetic broadcaster that does not care about eurovision and deliberately send bad entries with no support every year.The tv ratings are also very low since we dont do well as in 2000s.So i really believe we should withdraw but not just because of the bad results

Ireland is before Eleni’s performance and all people will be concentrated for the best act. Only for this reason Ireland will be in 6-15 positions. It must be glad for Cyprus and Eleni! Otherwise, Ireland would be 15-26 positions. Cyprus gives to Ireland the chance to make it in top 10. That’s great and this country could give 12points to Cyprus for all this.

This year is one of the most unpredictable probably. There are so many good songs that it is hard for the bookmakers even to pinpoint the top 10, that’s why the odds keep going up and down. In the end it will probably be a surprise winner. If I have to take a bet, it will be an emotional ballad winning, one that the audience can connect to. Lithuania and Germany seem like such dark horses, they are such songs that purely touch you as a human.

Paro

Efi, Cyprus is a very upbeat, dancey and cool song and it will probably be the televote winner as it’s also 25th to perform. With juries, I guess it won’t do so well since musicwise and lyricwise it doesn’t offer much beyond the usual pop dance song. That’s why I think the combination of the jury vote and televote will give a surprise winner. And p.s., the odds are made to be broken, they are not a physical law. Even Cyprus went second the other day. Not to mention, that there are so many editions of Eurovision where the ‘odds… Read more »
