The Eurovision 2019 betting odds are constantly going up and down.
And following performances at Eurovision in Concert, things have been mixed up quite a bit.
Russia’s Sergey Lazarev now finds himself back in second place according to the bookmakers, surpassing Switzerland’s Luca Hänni.
The latest Eurovision 2019 betting odds from our friends at Eurovision Oddschecker show that Russia’s odds to win the grand final have narrowed to as low as 4/1. That means he’s now passed Switzerland, which has dropped to third favourite.

Following #Eurovision in Concert in #Amsterdam, the #Eurovision2019 odds have shifted slightly. Russia, Sweden and Cyprus — three countries that did NOT perform — have each moved up one spot in the oddstable. They passed Switzerland, Iceland and Greece respectively. ___________________________________ #eurovisionsongcontest #eurovision2019 #esc2019 #eurovision #daretodream
While Switzerland’s Luca Hänni took to the stage in Amsterdam last weekend, we’ll have to wait and see what Sergey Lazarev will present at the rehearsals in Tel Aviv. He’s not doing any promotion stops at all as he’s busy rehearsing and bringing his tour to several countries in Europe.
Many people praised the great choreography from the Swiss Eurovision star. Moreover, with weeks to go until the showdown in Tel Aviv, he’s got enough time to bring his vocals up to the top notch. As he told us in our interview in Amsterdam, he’s even rehearsing on a treadmill — so do keep an eye on “She Got Me”!
Also up are Sweden (up two to 4th place) and Cyprus (in 7th). Neither act performed at Eurovision in Concert. Iceland’s Hatari see themselves down one spot to 6th while Greece’s Katerine Duska slides one to 8th favorite to win. Indeed, Katerine was sick and couldn’t bring the performance people expected her to do. We’re hoping that she has a quick recovery to bring her A game in Tel Aviv!
What do you make of the latest changes with the bookies? Is Russia a possible contender to win? Or do you think the bookmakers overestimate the impact of last weekend’s live performances? Let us know down below!
