Five nights of Italian music on the famed Teatro Ariston stage all lead to this. Tonight, the winner of Italy’s Festival di Sanremo 2020 will be crowned. Ahead of this evening’s final, the bookies have Francesco Gabbani a top of the odds and as their favourite to win.
The Eurovision 2017 participant could be heading for a historic third victory at Sanremo. He won the newcomers section of Sanremo 2016, and then claimed the Golden Lion statue of the Big Artists competition in 2017 for his song “Occidentali’s Karma”.
Sanremo Festival 2020 Odds: Francesco Gabbani favourite to win
This year, Francesco Gabbani has entered Sanremo with “Viceversa”. He was in first place following the demoscopic jury and orchestra voting following the first three nights, and then came second with the press jury last night.
This consistency has meant confidence has grown in Gabbani’s chances of winning, and now multiple betting outlets – Unibet, Bet 365, BWIN and 888 Sport – have placed him as their clear favourite to win. Unibet have the Italian star at odds as low as 2.25.
Sitting second in the odds is Diodato. He has consistently held onto the second spot with the bookies over the past few days for his song “Fai rumore”. Diodato currently has odds of 5.00, which is a relatively big gap from front-runner Francesco Gabbani.
Former bookies’ favourite Elodie has now slipped down to third. The “Andromeda” singer hasn’t performed as well with the juries so far as fans were hoping, thus her odds are now at 5.00 with Unibet.
Nevertheless, at third place, the bookies’ still have some confidence that Elodie could do well tonight. With the video of her first performance currently sitting at 1.4 million views, perhaps the public vote will help Elodie to rise back up the scoreboard. Though, Franceso Gabbani’s performance video has also done well, picking up 1.9 million views.
Rounding out the top five with the bookies are Pinguini Tattici Nucleari and Tosca, both with odds of 7.50 at Unibet. Should the voting go well tonight, perhaps either of these acts are also in with a shot of taking home the trophy.
