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
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.
