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 direction. Elina 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.
