Last night Cyprus‘ Eleni Foureira lit up the Eurovision stage and today her odds are on fire too.
Eleni is in blue across the board at bookmakers. That means her odds to win are shortening. Bet365 have moved her from 11/4 to 5/2. The chance of a historic first Eurovision victory for Cyprus draws closer.
The pyro-princess is followed by Norway. “Fairytale” hitmaker Alexander Rybak is second favourite to win the the contest. Betfair has him as low as 7/2. His odds may shorten further after the second semi-final tomorrow night in Lisbon.
Norway’s elevation comes at Israel‘s expense. Netta slipped to second yesterday and has fallen to third today. Israel’s odds are as high as 6/1 with some bookmakers. Netta’s also in the red with bookmakers, meaning her odds to win are drifting.
France is in fourth. Madame Monsieur’s odds have shortened, but not enough to enter the top three. Madame Monsieur match Israel’s lowest odds of 5/1.
The newest tenant of the Eurovision 2018 odds top five is Lithuania. Ieva Zasimauskaité’s odds have elevated significantly after a standout semi-final performance on Tuesday night. 188Bet has Lithuania as low as 9/1 to win it all. Odds on May 8 were as high as 100/1.
Sweden has crept up to sixth ahead of Semi-Final 2. Benjamin Ingrosso’s odds have inched lower. MarathonBet has him at 12/1 and he’s in the blue at most bookmakers.
Estonia has moved in the other direction. Elina Nechayeva sits in seventh. Her Grand Final draw for first half could explain her downward trajectory. Odds have opened up, rising to highs of 25/1 at BetFred and Bet365.
Others movers include Czech Republic, Moldova and Bulgaria. Czech Republic and Bulgaria have both moved down, while Moldova is moving on up.
Mikolas Josef’s odds to win have widened twice over in some cases. BetFair have adjusted him from 12/1 to 25/1. Moldova‘s meanwhile has momentum. They’re now ninth favourites to win the whole thing. BetFred has DoReDos as low as 20/1. Bringing up the rear is Bulgaria. Equinox’s odds are widening at most bookmakers. BetFred has them as high a 40/1.
