In recent weeks a French revolution has been brewing in the betting odds for Eurovision 2018. And France‘s Eurovision duo Madame Monsieur appear to have momentum on their side. They’ve now closed to second place in the odds to win the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.
They entered the top five three days ago and are now narrowing on Israel. Bet365 has slashed Madame Monsieur’s odds from 9/1 to 13/2.
Israel on the other hand is headed in the opposite direction. There’s a red alert out for Netta across the board, meaning her odds to win are widening. Marathon Bet has adjusted her odds from 15/11 a few days ago to 28/17. The market movement is a response to first rehearsals today. Netta’s Japanese Kimono-she-better-don’t-inspired performance has not impressed everyone.
Another act adversely affected by rehearsal reaction is Bulgaria‘s Equinox. They’ve fallen back into fourth place. SportingBet has them as high as 10/1. That’s opened the door for Australia to push through into third. BoyleSports has Jessica Mauboy as low as 15/2. She of course has yet to rehearse and will be in action on Tuesday.
If Israel and Bulgaria are in trouble, Estonia has turned things around. Estonia‘s Elina Nechayeva is back in the top five after a warm reception for her first rehearsal in Lisbon. William Hill has cut Estonia’s odds from 12/1 to 9/1.
That means Czech Republic has fallen out of the top five. Mikolas Josef injured himself during rehearsals, which could explain market reaction. Czech Republic’s widest odds are 12/1 at SportingBet.
Today’s biggest casualty is Belgium. Sennek has slipped out of the Top Ten altogether, falling to fourteenth place. SportingBet has Sennek as high as 66/1. Vocal problems during preparty season had already seen Belgium drifting downward. That has allowed Spain to sneak in to the Top 10. Ladbrokes have Almaia as low as 25/1.
