Emmy Witch Woods Melodi Grand Prix 2021

We met the four acts for Melodi Grand Prix 2021 semi-final three on Monday. And as Saturday’s show looms near, we’ve taken a look at the bookies’ odds for Norway’s Eurovision selection.

And, if the bookmakers are to be believed Emmy is the one to beat in semi-final three.

Melodi Grand Prix 2021 Odds: Emmy favourite to win semi-three

The “Witch Woods” chanteuse is trading on Unibet at odds of 1.90. Were these odds to play out on Saturday, she would win the semi and progress to the 20 February grand final. The remaining three acts would remain in contention for a wildcard slot, along with the eliminated entries from the other four semis.

Emmy’s closest competition, at least in the eyes of the bookies, is Ole Hartz. His anthemic number “Vi er Norge” can be backed at 3.0. Rapper Big Daddy Karsten is third with odds of 4.0. Meanwhile, Dinaye brings up the rear at 7.5.

However, the bookies’ rankings are not necessarily an indicator of success. While the bookies did predict Raylee’s victory in week two, Stina Talling was top of the odds ahead of semi-final one. Ultimately, though, Blåsemafian emerged victorious despite only having odds of 5.0.

Melodi Grand Prix 2021 Bookmakers’ Odds — semi-three

  1. Emmy 1.90
  2. Ole Hartz 3.0
  3. Big Daddy Karsten 4.0
  4. Dinaye 7.5

Odds correct as of 14:30 CET 28 January, via Unibet

How the odds work

The decimal odds number represents the amount you win for every krone/euro/dollar bet. The number represents the total payout, rather than the profit. Your stake is already included in the decimal number.

Taking odds of 1.90 as an example, for every €1.00 you bet, you will get back €1.90 if you win. This includes 90 cents profit plus your original one euro bet.

Bookmakers set odds by looking at factors such as prior form, statistics, historical precedents, expert opinion and any number of other elements which could influence the result in question. After this analysis, the bookies will be left with what they deem to be the most accurate possible true odds of any outcome occurring. As these factors are always shifting, the bookies’ odds will remain in flux.

there are only 10 different songs, the rest are all the same genre, very POP, and little diversity.

None of these compare to the classy song by Kaja Rode. It sounds a tad too much like a Leona Lewis album filler. But I am excited to see how it comes a acoss live.

Really surprised that Smile isn’t further up in the rankings!? I feel somewhat vindicated knowing that William shares my opinion.

“Witch woods” has mystery AND sassy elements in it, so I’ll root (or wood?) for it! Double pleasure 😀

I could see this semi being almost anyone’s game, depending on the performance. My gut tells me Ole could win this semi. I enjoy listening to Emmy and Karsten’s song a bit more on Spotify but I feel that Ole’s song lends itself to putting on a great performance. Guess we’ll find out in two days!
