The Eurovision 2015 entries have come thick and fast in recent days, with Azerbaijan, Russia, Albania, Norway, Sweden, Australia and Montenegro all choosing or revealing their songs. Now that the 40-act Eurovision lineup is complete, the bookies have revised their Eurovision betting odds. So grab your wallets and let’s reveiw the latest Eurovision favourites, as compiled by Oddschecker.

Sweden, Italy and Estonia: The early favourites

When we last checked in on March 8, Italy’s Il Volo led with odds as low as 6/4. That put them just ahead of Estonia’s Elina & Stig and Finland’s Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät, both of whom sat at 4/1.

However, Sweden had not yet chosen its song. Following Mans Zelmerlow’s landslide victory at Melodifestivalen, Sweden has jumped from fourth favourite (with odds of 8/1) to the bookies’ top pick to win in Vienna. Mans’ odds are as low as 9/4 at Betfred.

Bet365 currently has both Sweden and Italy drifting, with Estonia holding steady. This suggests the race to win is levelling out at the top and turning into a three-horse race (well, six if you count all the individual singers).

Finland drops, Slovenia and Australia rise

Finland is slowly drifting out of contention. It has dropped from joint second favourite down to sixth favourite, with its odds widening from 4 to 10 at Bet365. We all know that PKN have an inspirational backstory. But were the bookies responding to the media hype rather than the song when they named them as early front-runners?

Australia’s Guy Sebastian has risen in the bookies’ estimation since revealing his song “Tonight Again”. He has moved from sixth favourite with odds of 10/1 at Skybet to fourth favourite with his odds remaining the same.

Slovenia’s odds have narrowed dramatically, falling from 20/1 at most agencies on March 8 to between 10/1 and 12/1 today. They’ve risen from seventh favourite to fifth in the process. Husband-wife duo Maraaya seem like a good outside bet to us.

Georgia is way underrated. Out of any of the dark horses I hope it’ll rise to the occasion. Sweden isn’t even that good this year I don’t get why people are so excited about it. Maybe the bookies think all the voters are young girls who will vote for Sweden and Italy because there are hot guys or something, I don’t know. Either way my favorites are Georgia, UK, Belgium, and Australia.

Det är inte många låtar som är bra i år. Dom bästa är Sverige, Nederländerna, Italien och Estland, om dom gör en bättre sånginsats. Norge, Slovenien och Azerbajdzan = ZZZZZZZZ

I think this year there isn’t really a clear winner regardless of what the odds tell you, which is nice for a change. Think there are a couple of entries that have the potential of winning but there is no Loreen or Alexander Rybak at our midst.

Here’s my personal Top 40: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WMe4WsPv8A
(of which people will disagree with :P). Won’t be like the results in May by any means :P.

Italy Sweden Norway Estonia and Slovenia will battle it out for the win for sure. Outside bets. Iceland and Spain. I can’t see past Italy 2016 though for some reason. With maybe Sweden 2016 if not Italy. I don’t get people saying it is too soon for Sweden to win if Europe reckons they have the best song so then they will deserve it. Spain Luxembourg Israel and Ireland have all won two or indeed three years in a row. So please people saying that it’s too soon for Sweden to win is ridiculous. SVT may not be happy but… Read more »

This year is so strong! I predict that in May, seeing the performances on the stage, many fans will regard the current edition as the best in the history. The level of the most songs is so high and equal! It is so hard to point out the winner! Unexpectedly, it is turning out that the second semi-final is much more unpredictable. Frankly speaking, this year I have only a few songs that I don’t like: Czech Republic, Portugal, Switzerland, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, San Marino, Israel. All other songs are either remarkable (like France, Sweden, Italy, Spain,… Read more »

Sorry but no!!! I don’t agree with any of the favourites for the bet companies! I love Albania song, I think is the best song this year, young and fresh!! All the rest is the same old crap heard every year in ESC. Italy’s song is an opera for God’s sake…and even the Italians hate it…in the Italian media was said that the real people’s winner was Nek who arrived second. And I totally am in that same direction! And I don’t understand this fascination with Estonia or Slovenia…two super boring songs!! I hope this year Albania wins…if not will… Read more »

I really can’t understand the hype about Estonia and Slovenia… I tried, I really tried! It’s obviously a matter of taste, but I really doubt that any of them will be in the top 5. Why anyone would say that these songs are fresh or original is beyond me… Retro vibes that have been done to death… It’s not like I hate them or anything, far from it, but I really hope they won’t win. I would be happy if Spain and Malta will be in the top 5, and I really hope Portugal and Belarus will qualify for the… Read more »

I don’t think this is Sweden’s year, it’s too soon after 2012. Although I’m happy to see them rightfully at the top along Italy, Estonia and Slovenia.

Surprised to see Georgia so low, the revamped song is really growing on me.

Many good songs this year, I like the italian entry. Rom 2016? The azeri entry is also nice, best wishes from Sweden. Don’t think we will win again in like 13 years, just saying 😀 We need another Loreen.

Italy is this years (France 2011) entry.. a song that is classical but everyone says they love it.. but at eurovision it will completly fail to gain votes.

GO AMINATA! “Love Injected” is powerful and modern song. I think (young) people from UK, Australia, Ireland and Iceland would like it. It has a big chance to qualify to final. Aminata works so hard to improve her vocals and find harmony with backing vocals. As well she can perform good live. It’s in the same semi as Lithuania (8, 10 or even 12 points from them), Ireland (big points if irish jury will like it, a lot of latvians living in Ireland). Australia and UK could give some points as well. There are a lot positive comments from Italians… Read more »

I just really hope that Latvia will qualify, as they song is great, not like all the crap they sent other years. I don’t know, some people say Love Injected is overrated, but I think it could be a dark horse to reach the top 10. I really wish good luck for Aminata!

It’s interesting when you do a recap of all these songs, in their respective Semis. The outcome may not be the one you all are writing about. It all depends on their live performances, as well (*cough*Netherlands 2014*cough*). So, I’ll wait to see whoever, whatever has in store for their stage show before making my mind & I’ll skip every other “Top10” or similar. The 3 favorites from above – I’ve played them to non-ESC fans, Sweden got many praise, while Estonia had “why this is a favorite?” kind of reaction. Dunno. I like both Sweden & Italy and I’ll… Read more »

Sweden won’t win for sure. Italy, Estonia or Norway will win still not sure… Sweden definitly top 3 again but not first place. I’m gonna vote for Estonia (Final), Norway (Final), Georgia (final) and Armenia (only in ~semi final~). I wish Poland/Slovenia/Georgia will take the victory… they’ve never won and its time that a new country can host the show (no problem with Austria, but not Sweden or Denmark again) Best hosting countries: 1. Germany (no doubts! if Australia or Germany wins 2016 will be great) 2. Azerbaijan (they’ll do a great job and they’ll sure send a killer song… Read more »

Sweden is way too overrated. Its another generic song that I can easily see crashing on the final night.

On the other hand Iceland is definitely the most underrated here.. It s a strong contender for a top 10

As at least one person has stated, it all changes after rehearsals and the semis…Austria was 25-1 and Netherlands 20-1 in the week running up to the final and the odds crashed after the semis…videos, Youtube clips and websites had all taken note for two months but had made NO IMPACT……expect a “calm before the storm”…..

If a country like Slovenia wants to win, they have to send better songs. Their songs are always bad or OK. Only Maya was great and should won

I want Sweden to win, like always ???????? Melodifestivalen is for the most part better than Eurovision, both quality and entertainment wise. That said, I think there’s an unusual amount of shit entry’s thos year. Lot’s of ballads that aren’t even good. Måns is one of the very few with an up tempo song which will weigh heavily in his favour. I do like the Estonian entry. The Baltic countries have stepped up this year, while, the exception of Sweden and Norway, all the rest have sunk into some kind of coma. Stockholm 2016!

Even at this early stage, Day 1 showing, the major difference between this year and last year is that the Bookies (& punters) ONLY give the first 7 songs any reasonable chance of winning and they really just give 3 any realistic chance of winning. (Very confident.) The reason why there is no clear outright favourite at this stage, unlike last year, is that the all 3 songs have issues and none have the perfect situation. Also what is clear is that there is a massive jump between the 14th song and the 15th song onwards with Bet365 (one of… Read more »

Armenia and Azerbaijan are also way over-rated in these odds. I expect either or both of them not to make it to the final this year. In fact neither of them deserves it.

Australia and the UK are way over-rated in the odds, just as you would expect from british agencies. Don’t forget that in their parallel universe someone named Molly was a top contender last year.

Spain, Belgium, Israel and Georgia are ridiculously under-rated and so is Russia. They should all be in the top-10 right now.

I honestly don’t see Mans winning, I think the song whilst good is a bit generic. Whereas Italy and Estonia are sending wonderful original songs, that rely on voice, not animation.
