When she goes low, she goes so low. And it seems that Switzerland’s Luca Hänni may well be talking about the woman behind the Eurovision 2019 betting odds.
By the early hours of March 22 the bet makers had slashed Switzerland’s odds to win the grand final of Eurovision 2019 to as low as 7/1.
His uptick in fortune comes as the bookies have widened Sweden’s odds. When we last checked in on March 17, John Lundvik had odds as low as 5/1.
But his odds have now been raised and his best price is at 15/2. That’s dropped him down to fourth favourite and helped Switzerland rise toward the top.

He got me! Switzerland’s Luca Hänni ? is now third favourite to win #Eurovision 2019 ?? The bookies have slashed his odds, dropping them to as low as 7/1. That means he has now moved past Sweden’s #melfest winner John Lundvik. __________ Further down the table, Greece, Malta, Norway and Portugal remain locked in a close battle for the final spots in the Top 10 favourites. For the moment Norway holds that precious 10th favourite position, with Portugal in 11th. __________ #eurovisionsongcontest #eurovision #eurovision2019 #esc2019 #lucahänni
The change in the odds may reflect growing confidence that Luca’s song will maintain its energy and pace on stage in Tel Aviv.
Swiss broadcaster SRF recently shared a photo of Luca with noted stage director and choreographer Sacha Jean-Baptiste following their first rehearsal together.
Sacha is the woman behind several of the most talked-about stage shows in recent years, including Cyprus’ Eurovision 2018 performance “Fuego”.
And while there should be no doubt about Luca’s ability to move, Switzerland also released a ‘making of’ video that showed him dancing in the offices of SRF juxtaposed with his actual moves in his official music video. The man doesn’t need a massive stage to shine!
