Betting odds are in flux following last night’s jury show and the announcement of the running order for the Grand Final in the early hours of Friday morning.
Switzerland third favourite in Eurovision 2019 odds to win
The major winner appears to be Switzerland‘s Luca Hannï.
After problematic rehearsals he tumbled in the odds, but he’s now moving in the opposite direction.
Overnight Switzerland has entered the top three to win. On May 7 SportingBet was offering 16/1 but they’ve now cut it to 10/1. Luca is also in the blue at bookies which means his odds to win are shortening.
Another act on the offensive is Iceland‘s Hatari. They also fell victim to rehearsals and have been outside the top five for some time. Their jury performance appears to have boosted their fortunes. Bet365 offers them as low as 16/1. They’re also in the blue at a spread of bookies.
Sweden, Italy and Azerbaijan fall back in the odds after Eurovision 2019 Grand Final jury show
Sweden, Italy and Azerbaijan have all fallen back following the jury show.
In some cases John Lundvik’s odds to win have doubled. On May 10 888Sport listed his odds to win at 6/1. They now offer him at 12/1. SportingBet has his chances of victory as high as 16/1. He’s now fourth favourite to win.
Another casualty appears to be Italy‘s Mahmood. Unibet and 888Sport both have his chances as high as 25/1. Mahmood’s vocal sounded strong last night, but the perception of some that the stageshow is not a standout may have harmed him. He’s now only sixth favourite.
And finally Azerbaijan, which rose as high as fourth following first rehearsals, has now dropped to ninth. Ladbrokes has doubled Chingiz’s odds from 10/1 to 20/1 and his odds are now as long as 33/1 at Unibet.
The Netherlands remains the market leader, followed by Australia, although there is a significant distance between the two. The best price for The Netherlands’ in the odds is 3/4 vs 7/1 for Australia.
