Czechia: The odds regarding the winner of ESCZ 2024!

Only a few hours may have passed since the presentation of the ESCZ 2024 entries, but already the first odds for the winner have been set!

The ratings, as you can see below, on two Greek bookmarkers (NoviBet and Stoiximan) seem to agree having MYDY and “Red Flag Parade” as the favourites, with Elly following in second place with a pretty big lead over the other 5 artists.

ESCZ 2024 – Winner – NoviBet – 5/12/2024

ESCZ 2024 – Winner– Stoiximan – 5/12/2024

The above odds also seem to be in line with the opinion of the international public, which will determine 70% of the result, as recorded on the My Eurovision Scoreboard app.

ESCZ – Community – My Eurovision Scoreboaard – 5/12/2024
