One day you’re in, the next day you’re out. And only one day after taking second spot in the betting odds, Czech Republic’s Mikolas Josef has fallen back to third position.

That’s because Equinox – Bulgaria’s Eurovision 2018 act – have common framewerked there way into second spot overnight.

Bulgaria are in the blue at a number of betmakers, meaning their odds are shortening. Skybet, for example, have moved Equinox from 13/2 to 11/2. Mikolas on the other hand appears to have lost momentum: Marathon Bet haven’t moved him from 6/1 and certain agencies actually have him drifting.

Estonia is on the move, but in the wrong directionElina Nechayeva has fallen to fourth. Yesterday Ladbrokes had her at 7/1. Now she sits at 8/1. The dressing down at bookmakers is linked to problems with her national final projection dress performance. Unless broadcaster ERR can find 65,000, homegirl will have to do without the dress on stage in Lisbon.

Australia’s Jessica Mauboy is on the move, in the right direction. Rave reviews on the preview party circuit have seen her odds shorten. The “We Got Love” hitmaker is in the blue with several bookmakers. Bet365 have moved her from 12/1 to 10/1 overnight.

Sweden remains in sixth. Benjamin Ingrosso skipped Israel Calling, which may explain why his momentum has dried up. A performance at Eurovision In Concert tonight in Amsterdam may alter things.

Norway and France have swapped spots. Alexander Rybak sits in seventh, with odds as short as 16/1 at William Hill. Madame Monsieur can also be found for 16/1 in eighth, but have longer odds elsewhere.

Belgium’s Sennek took a nosedive in the odds as a result of lukewarm reception to her performance at Israel Calling. She’s now levelled off with bookmakers, with her odds out of the red. Bet365 has “A Matter of Time” at 22/1, compared to 16/1 yesterday.

Greece rounds out the Top 10 with odds as short as 22/1 at Paddpower. Yianna Terzi’s ethnic ballad “Oneiro Mou” has the edge on eleventh place Spain.

The Dutch, Finnish and Italian songs are not Eurovision fans favourites but the televoters (ordinary people spending their saturday night with a beer) will love them. Israel… will we even see it in the finals??

I’m sorry for I’m about to say right now,but Europeans have such a great music and you guys really don’t know how to reward a great song,a good instrumental and a great voice. You are not professionals but damnn some things are obvious. I want to give major credit to Eugent Bushpepa for the terrific performance and I’m rooting for him. But I would choose Israel as a winner even though the song got stuck in my head,it’s CLEARLY not the best song of Europe. Love from Canada!

As far as Betting Odds are concerned, nobody but seriously NOBODY cares who stays at the 2nd or 3rd position … The main point, the most relevant aspect of all this for this year’s edition is that Israel wins at all costs no matter what so that: a) fans can throw some shaming pies at Salvador Sobral’s face and maybe leave Caetano Veloso wondering “What the f*** is going on here?” so that the message “Your music perception and conviction plays no role in our party kindergarten.” is spoken as loud as possible. b) Eurovision goes back to lose its… Read more »

I suspect you are both right, that they will not continue as a group once Eurovision is done. They need a music video to impress me more.

No music video, no problem! I used their national contest performances or their (official) lyric videos.

Russia, Iceland and Serbia did not disappoint in 2016, when they brought most of the action in their videos to the stage. How well or how poorly a video conveys the message in a song is one of the aspects I look for when I watch a video. By the way, from my… Read more »

Blanche did average with the semi-final performances yes. In the Kiev semi-final, jury put Belgium out of the top 10. But they really did something going in to the final; Belgium got ninth with the juries in the final and the live televised performance was such an improvement from the one in the Semi.

I overrated Belgium because of this artistic video and before the live performances. After Israel and Amsterdam I would be very much disappointed Belgium qualifying and Albania not – for example.

City lights in comparision is still to me a very good song I am listening to still with pleasure. Eurovision isn’t fair, I guess and Sennek coming from Belgium is getting a lot of bonus points.

There is a possibility that Estonia (4th) may swap places with Australia (5th) but I don’t think they will fall out of the Top 5 as there is now a 10 point gap between Australia and Sweden, Estonia surely are not going to drop 13 points eh?

Equinox weren’t at Israel Calling, were they? A lot of these changes in the odds are in response to the live performances for Israel Calling, but that’s not the case for Bulgaria.
Their odds suddenly shot up after they started rehearsing their staging with Sasha Jean-Baptiste. I wonder if somewhere out there, someone is leaking that they do actually have an exceptional stage show, and that explains the reaction.

Wasn’t so hyped about Australia at first, but the song has grown on me a lot, probably the most out of all songs this year, and Jessica totally deserves her spot in those odds. Interesting to see Bulgaria climb back up the odds after an initial fall. I think we will be heading to Sofia next year

Czech Republic will be lower
Sweden around the 4th-6th
France, Macedonia and Cyprus out of the top 10
Winner: Bulgaria/Israel/Estonia – depends on staging

Czech Republic will not please the juries.
Sweden will deffo be top 10 maybe even 5.
Macedonia won’t qualify.
France will be in the top 10
Cyprus SHOULD be top 15
Israel will not in.
Estonia will win as a shock

I wonder if I’ll ever get used to fractional odds.

If Australia wins then the contest could be hosted anywhere in Europe. Probably the most interesting Host City Bidding Process.

We all love the contest so much that we even look at the betting odds , that proved to be completely overrated the last two years. Can’t wait to see them finally get on the stage. That will be the true start of the competition ??
