Team Wiwi understands that Eurovision 2013 hasn’t yet taken place. But judging from this year’s early betting odds, we’ll all be going back to Scandinavia in 2014.

That’s right people. Early predictions from ten of Europe’s top betting agencies have Denmark’s Emmelie de Forest (“Only Teardrops”) down as this year’s winner, with her odds as low as 5/2. She’s followed closely by Norway’s Margaret Berger (“Feed You My Love”), who generally has odds of 5/1. Sweden’s Robin Stjernberg (“You”) comes third with odds as low as 9/1.

Holland’s Anouk (“Birds”) finds herself in fourth position with odds between 7 and 10. It may only be a matter of time before she overtakes Sweden with the bookies. We are thrilled to see Anouk putting Holland near the top of this early prediction table. It’s been a long time since the Netherlands has been on this end of the chart!

What do you make of the odds below? Any surprises? Shouldn’t Ireland be higher? I love that Azerbaijan is listed despite not yet having chosen its contestant.

I fail to see why people find the Danish entry so brilliant. It sounds very typical, cheesy and unoriginal to me. I also don’t find the concept of the act interesting. Just take a nice looking girl, put her in a long dress, make her look all natural and innocent and then let her sing a typical ‘jolly’ song ….and we’ll win Eurovision. I find that a very cheap way of scoring. The staging as well -barefoot, long dress, messy hair, on the floor- seems very much like last years act. The refrain of the song in particular is very… Read more »

Denmark will win this year – it’s clearly the best song! However I don’t think that we need to go to Copenhagen in 2014, but instead Herning (Jyske Bank Boxen).

Hi guys, I guess we all know betting comes with a health warning, but I got 40/1 odds (each way) on Anouk a few weeks ago…way-hay! Also going to put a punt on Cezar. Ok, so I know some people treat Romania’s entry as a joke, but let’s not forget how many wrote off Rona Nishliu last year (she actually won her semi and nearly got a top 3 finish in the end). Technically Cezar does a great job so definitely worth a few quid (euros) at 66/1 don’t you think…..

I like Ireland’s entry this year, it’s definitely in my top 3! I like Germany’s too, I hope that does well 🙂 I’m surprised to see the UK as high up as it is, does Europe like our song? I’m not a big fan of Denmark’s song but I could see it winning!

Norway is great! The song, the singer, the voice. I have no idea why Denmark is one of the favourites.

Sokratis har rätt. Bara några ord om låtarna/sångare i deras top 5:

1. Danmark : Det är en feministisk sorgmarsch
2. Norge : För mycket brus i techno
3. Sverige : För mycket youuuuuu
4. Holland : Något unikt och bra
5 Ryssland : Dina Garipova sjunger bra!

Denmark is the clear front runner to me. I have no idea why is Norway so high odds-wise, the song is very generic and standard and her voice is nothing special. I am a bit shocked Ireland is so low considering how easy to listen and fresh the song is.

I don’t feel attached of any song this year. There are some that I like (Ireland, Netherlands, Israel), some that are cute (Malta, Hungary), some that are controversial (Romania), but none pure love or pure horror for me. I applaud Greece and Cyprus for changing the genre…I would vote Ireland as 1st choice – the video is great, but did not like the live performance posted by RTE…

Switzerland is last? LOL I’m sorry, but I think that goes to Belgium.

Out of the songs so far released or the revamped versions made. I think it’s going to Denmark again just like what happened when Sweden hosted it last time. Then again, this is Eurovision, anything can happen

i wouldn’t mind Denmark or Sweden win, Norway not so much. And sorry, Netherlands in just borring. i’m sure that if someone else would sing it and not Anouk, it wouldn’t be so high…

As much as I like both Denmark and Norway’s songs, I really can’t see them as possible winners – Denmark screams “mid-table result”, and Norway is very hard to predict – they could either flop in the semi-finals , or crack the top five.

I think the winner this year will be either Azerbaijan, Germany, Russia – with Austria and Finland being possible dark horses.

I find it impossible to believe that Switzerland are the worst odds. Middle table sure, same for Bulgaria and Hungary. Surely Montenegro and San Marino, countries yet to make a final will slide once their songs are released
