San Marino has risen to tenth favourite to win Eurovision 2021. Last Friday Senhit was the bookies’ 36th favourite to win with odds as high as 200/1. But fast-forward to Monday evening — a day after “Adrenalina” dropped — and Senhit is now sitting pretty with odds as low as 14/1.
In Eurovision a few days — and the potential of Flo Rida on stage— can clearly make a huge impact. It still isn’t clear if the “Club Can’t Handle Me” singer will make it to Rotterdam. But even without his talent on show San Marino seem poised for their best finish ever. For a time on Monday, the hype even made betting on San Marino to win Eurovision the most popular bet in the “specials” category in the UK, alongside who will become the next leader of the UK’s Conservative Party.
Eurovision 2021 betting odds: San Marino and Italy climbing

Last Friday, on the eve of the Sanremo 2021 final, Italy was down as seventh favourite among the bookies with odds as high as 14/1. Following Måneskin‘s victory with “Zitti e buoni”, Italy has climbed to third favourite with odds as low as 5/1 at Betway. The foursome were hugely popular with the Italian public and climbed steadily in the rankings throughout the week of Sanremo. Could this momentum see them winning over Europe in the weeks and months ahead?
Higher up, Iceland’s Daði Freyr remains the early favourite to win in Rotterdam with odds as low as 11/2. He’d lost the top spot for a time to Lithuania’s The Roop and their song “Discoteque”. (But they’ve now drifted to fifth favourite with odds as high as 13/1 at SKB). The date to remember in this mix is March 13: That’s when Daði will release his 2021 entry “10 years”.
Further down the table, we have to discuss three of the most recently confirmed Eurovision 2021 entries — from Portugal, Denmark and Estonia. It’s not good news for any of them.
Portugal’s The Black Mamba is down as 29th favourite to win with “Love Is On My Side”. The odds here are as high as 169/1.
Denmark’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix winners Fyr & Flamme also have very sizeable odds. The 80’s style bop “Øve os på hinanden” is currently 35th favourite with odds as high as 259/1.
Estonian Uku Suviste successfully defended his Eesti Laul title with “The Lucky One”, but he’s not so lucky with the bookies. He’s down as 37th favourite — ahead of only Spain, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Albania — with odds as high as 299/1.
What do you make of all this? Is San Marino one to watch? Do you think that Senhit can take things even higher? Let us know in the comments box down below!
