Rasmus Rändvee Eesti Laul 2020

In less than one week we will know the identities of the 12 finalists for Eesti Laul 2020 — Estonia’s Eurovision selection show. But before that, we have the not so small matter of the semi-finals to deal with.

The first one takes place on Thursday 13 February. We’ve had plenty of time to familiarise ourselves with the songs and decide our favourites. Perhaps some have even placed a bet or two.

But only six acts will qualify from this semi. And the bookies, as always, have a favourite — Rasmus Rändvee.

Eesti Laul 2020 Odds: Rasmus Rändvee favourite to win semi-final one

Rasmus Rändvee is the current favourite to win with “Young”. With extremely short odds of 1.95 on Coolbet, it seems like Rasmus is a shoo-in for the final, at least in the eyes of the bookies.

Rasmus has taken part in Eesti Laul before. In 2013, he entered with the band Facelift Deer and “Dance”. They made it to the final and finished seventh. He made a solo comeback in 2017 with “This Love”. It made the podium, coming third. Will this be the year his fortunes change?

Eesti Laul 2020: Other semi-final one favourites

Second favourite to qualify is Stefan this round with his romantic ballad “By My Side”. At the moment, you can back him at odds of 2.95.

Stefan was expected to win in 2019 with “Without You”. He topped the first round of voting in the final. And while he smashed the jury vote in the super final, he only came fourth with the jury. He had to make do with a third-place finish behind Victor Crone.

Completing the top three is Laura. She’s trading at odds of 4.0 for “Break Me”.

Laura Põldvere — known professionally as Laura — has represented Estonia at Eurovision twice before. In 2005 she was part of the girl group Suntribe. They came 20th in the semi-final.

Of course, she competed again in 2017 with Koit Toome. While the duo came sixth with the televote, she missed out on the final once again.

The top three are currently running away with the odds.

The fourth-ranked semi-finalist Anett x Fredi have very long odds of 35.0. The top six is rounded off by Inga and Synne Valtri feat. Väliharf.

Note, these are the odds to win semi-final one rather than to qualify.

without a question laura has the best song and i think also the best voice in semi 1 – live on stage will show us hopely the magic timeless class of “break me”. but i know also that jurys normally dont like pop like this – the song is a little bit oldschool like annas song in sweden – in the last years they prefer more this typical “castingshow(ballad)music” where a good voice live on stage is all what counts or good looking boys of course. ; this year i am in estonia in “team laura”. go laura – take… Read more »

Just reminded myself that these are the odds to win the semi final, not just to qualify.
I think this is actually being generous to Laura. I like her song and think she’s definitely qualifying but no, the winner is going to be Rasmus or Stefan. Everybody else should be miles off.

I hope Laura goes to the final. At first her song was meh, but it really grew on me.
