It’s been a crazy few days in the world of Eurovision. And there’s been movement at the top of the Eurovision 2021 odds table amid a flurry of song releases, as you can see at Eurovision Oddschecker.
After Switzerland premiered their song “Tout l’univers“, Gjon’s Tears climbed into first place with odds as low as 4/1. It’s a big jump. On March 8 Switzerland was seventh favourite and the best price you could get was 18/1.
Oddschecker presents odds using the fractional system. So, for example, betting £1 on France to win with odds of 9/1 would win the betmaker £9, for a total profit of £8. The list below shows the odds as of 22:00 GMT on 10 March.

That means Gjon’s Tears has displaced Iceland’s Daði Freyr as the one to beat. Iceland has held on to the top spot for quite some time, owing partly to the huge success of last year’s entry “Thing About Things”. Depending on when we refresh the page, Iceland is currently fourth or fifth favourite (in a tight race with Bulgaria). The odds for Iceland are as low as 6/1 and as high as 23/2. The drop follows a brief leak of their song “10 Years“, which is out on March 13. Note: It’s not always a good idea to judge a song by a snippet, let alone a leaked one!
Other Eurovision 2021 betting favourites
As reported earlier, Senhit from San Marino has risen to tenth favourite to win the contest with her song “Adrenalina” featuring Flo Rida. That’s one of the biggest shocks of recent Eurovision memory — and in the best way possible. She climbed from 36th favourite with odds as high as 200/1 to tenth favourite with odds as low as 14/1.
