Norway’s Margaret Berger remains the favourite to win the second semi-final at Eurovision, but Georgia’s Nodi & Sophie are closing in. When we last checked the second semi-final odds on April 24, Norway was hovering between 7/4 and 2/1. She’s still there. But she must have water on her back because Nodi & Sophie are putting up a real good fight with “Waterfall”. Their odds have shrunk from 3/1 to 5/2. Maybe the strong endorsement from the Wiwi Jury helped. They are currently in second place with us! The odds further down the board remain almost identical to what we saw at the end of April.
Odds to win
Odds to qualify
We’ve taken an average “odds to qualify” from 10 leading betting agencies and averaged them. According to the bookies the following countries will advance to the final from the second semi: Norway, Georgia, Greece, Azerbaijan, Malta, San Marino, Israel, Armenia, Finland, and Bulgaria.
I think the bookies have been taking horse tranquilizer, as these odds don’t make sense. I’d definitely kick Armenia out of the Top 10 in this semi, and I’d question whether Bulgaria and Israel will make it. I like them both, but I think Iceland, Switzerland and Romania could enjoy a lot of support in this semi. I just don’t know and I’m moist with excitement!
