It’s only been two days since the Melodifestivalen 2023 nominees were announced, but already the first bets for the winner have begun, even though we’ll have another two months to hear the songs from the first semi-final!
Favorite for the victory is Loreen , former representative of Sweden in the Contest and winner of Eurovision 2012, with an entry called “Tattoo” by Jimmy “Joker” Thörnfeldt, Jimmy Jansson, Loreen, Moa ”Cazzi Opeia” Carlebecker, Peter Boström, Thomas G:son.
Behind her are following Jon Henrik Fjällgren, Arc North feat. Adam Woods, while the top 5 is currently consisted of Maria Sur, Marcus & Martinus και Nordman.
It’s important to note here that the bets of this period are based only on the names of the artists. If we compare them with the previous years and always for this particular moment, we notice that the only years that the bets really paid off were 2014 and 2015.
