Eurovision 2023: Sweden comfortably at the top!
The favorite column of many of you is back as the betting breakdowns for the 67th Eurovision Song Contest are here again.
With the puzzle of 37 songs taking part in Eurovision 2023 complete, we take a look at the bookmakers’ odds of each country winning this year’s contest.
In any case, these odds reflect trends and are based on what we know so far about each country’s participation.
“Hurricane” Loreen seems to have come to “sweep” everything for the second time in the Eurovision Song Contest. Eleven years after her triumph in Baku, the experienced performer is seen as the big favorite to win Eurovision 2023. It is therefore no coincidence that the bookies are offering the – historic – seventh Swedish victory at odds below 2. In fact, Sweden’s victory is played at odds between 1.80 and 1.86.
Finland has “climbed” to second place after our last analysis. The huge success of Käärijä and “Cha Cha Cha” has piqued the interest of bookmakers who believe that the Scandinavian country has enough chances for an excellent result at Eurovision 2023. A Finnish win is being played at odds between 4 and 6, following Sweden.
Ukraine has fallen to third place. Ukraine‘s back-to-back victory is no longer considered as likely as it was a few weeks ago, with the odds constantly rising. It is characteristic that at the given time the victory of the Eastern European country can “return” up to 7.5 times the money of the one who will bet on it.
Norway remains in fourth place, but the difference from the Top 3 has grown considerably compared to a few weeks earlier. Alessandra and the ‘Queen of Kings‘ have been fan favourites, with bookies tipping the Norwegian as fourth favorite to win in Liverpool. Norwegian victory is played between 12 and 19.
Israel completes the top five. The explosive Noa Kirel and “Unicorn” have moved up to fifth place after the release of the Israeli entry, but still a long way from fourth place. Israel’s victory is played between 13 and 34.
Very close to Israel are the sixth Spain and the seventh Czechia. As for Spain, the atmospheric “Eaea” has been gradually rising in recent weeks, with some companies already offering it in the Top 5. Nevertheless, the odds for the Spanish victory have “raised” and now a Blanca Paloma victory is played in odds between 20 and 34.
Seventh is Czechia. Vesna maintains positive momentum after its selection, but nevertheless has gradually lost ground over the past few weeks. The highest return that can be played the Czech Republic win returns 36 times the stake.
The UK are in eighth place, with Mae Muller‘s participation unimpressive with bookies who have discounted the UK’s chances of a home win. The British win can be played at odds that return up to 40 times the stake.
In ninth place we find another country from the Big-5, France. “Évidemment” and La Zarra return to the top ten after a few weeks, taking advantage of the fact that several of the last songs released did not impress. Possible victory of France is played at odds between 26 and 51.
Finally, the Top 10 is completed by Austria, which is the “pleasant surprise” of the last few weeks. The Central European country has seen the biggest rise in recent weeks, moving from 26th place a few weeks ago to 10th place. Teya & Salina with the wacky “Who the hell is Edgar?” are played at odds between 26 and 55.
Do you think Loreen can make history in May in Liverpool, giving Sweden victory for the second time while equaling the all-time record of Ireland of 7 wins?
