We’ve spent a lot of time looking at the odds to win the final of Eurovision 2013, but the bookies also have betting markets for each of the semi-finals. Emmelie de Forest—the Dane who doesn’t wear shoes—looks like a shoe-in to win the first semi-final. She currently has odds as low as 7/4. And as we know from the Serbians, including a wooden recorder or flute always bodes well for one’s chances!

Russia’s Dina Garipova is ranked fifth in the odds for the grand final—and behind Ukraine’s Zlata. But in the first semi-final she sits in second just ahead of the Ukraine. This may reflect the large presence of former Soviet Republics who are voting in this semi (Ukraine, Belarus, Estonia, Moldova, and Lithuania). She currently enjoys odds as low as 3/1. Ukraine is getting very close, though, with odds as low as 7/2.

Based on these odds, the following countries will qualify for the final: Denmark, Russia, Ukraine, Netherlands, Belarus, Serbia, Ireland, Estonia, Austria and Moldova. The following countries will be eliminated: Lithuania, Croatia, Cyprus, Slovenia, Belgium and Montenegro.

Contestants are ranked below based on the average of odds from 10 leading agencies. We’ve listed the odds from four of these agencies (Bet 365, Sky Bet, Boylesports, and Sportingbet).

After seeing the lastest odds for the First Semi-Final, I agree with Hi on Estonia missing out but I can imagine Slovenia, one of the more underrated countries, to produce a shock result. I do have a bad feeling that Cyprus will be cruelly denied though…

I don’t think Estonia will make it, due to it preforming second, so I’d swap that out with Cyprus and I’d think that’d be the 10 qualifiers.
