Sergey Lazarev from Russia follows in third. His ballad “Scream” is low in the odds, but does not command the same confidence enjoyed by the Netherlands or Sweden. Unibet is one of several bookmakers offering high odds at 5/1.
Azerbaijan and Switzerland round out the top five in the to win market. 888Sport puts Azerbaijan at 13/2 and SkyBet lists Luca Hannï’s chances to win at 12/1 so they’re some distance behind the leaders.
