Another day of rehearsals. Another day of upheavals in the Eurovision odds.
And today’s major winner is Bilal Hassani from France.
Following an acclaimed first rehearsal France has broken into the top ten of the odds.* The “Roi” hitmaker is in the blue at a spread of bookmakers which means his odds to win are shortening.
RedZone has France as low as 15/1.
Another country on the move is Australia. Kate Miller-Heidke’s rehearsal performances are moving the market. She’s now also inside the Top Ten, with odds as low as 16/1 at BetFair.
Rehearsal days have winners and they have casualties.
And unfortunately for Italy, Mahmood did not fair well from today’s rehearsals.
He’s now dropped out of the top three and is in the red at most bookmakers. That means his odds to win are drifting.
In fact Mahmood’s odds have gone as high as 11/1 SkyBet. This is likely a reaction to vocal and stage problems which received a mixed reaction in the press center.
Italy drifting in Eurovision 2019 odds to win
It is a bad day for Italy, but a good day for Sweden. Italy’s setback means Sweden is now inside the top three.
John Lundvik performed “Too Late For Love” in his second rehearsal and bookmakers have lapped it up. Sweden is in the blue across the board and as low as 5/1 at several major bookmakers.
The Netherlands and Russia continue to lead the market but neither has reversed the hit they took following their first rehearsals.
They remain in the red at many bookmakers and will hope to overturn that trend in their second rehearsals tomorrow.
