Eurovision odds for 2019 revealed
The annual Eurovision song contest is an over-the-top extravaganza that celebrates multiculturalism and unity throughout Europe. While the format has changed somewhat since the first event was held in Switzerland in 1956, the premise is still very much the same. A number of performers from European countries (and bizarrely, some of our other friends from around the world, including Australia) battle it out to write and perform the most popular song. With some knowledge of this year’s Eurovision odds, it could be possible for gamblers to capitalise on the competition.
Eurovision betting offers: how is the winner determined?
A combination of music industry experts make initial decisions on the merits of each song, before the general public votes for their favourite act via a telephone vote. While the judges tend to remain impartial (concentrating more on the technical ability, proficiency and song-writing talents of the performers), the telephone vote is notoriously political. For example, current events such as an armed conflict, trade embargo or a decision to leave the EU could result in lost votes around the continent for any nation who has fallen out of favour with their European neighbours.
This isn’t always necessarily the case though, and sometimes an act can pick up votes based on sheer wackiness alone. Audiences around Europe have differing tastes, and a track deemed to be kitsch or camp by hipsters in London might hold special significance to Eurovision fans in Lithuania. While Eurovision odds are generally a good indicator of who is likely to perform well on the night, the potential for an upset is always there – so it’s worth taking advantage of the best Eurovision betting offers in an attempt to “hedge your bets”.
What are Eurovision betting offers?
Eurovision 2019 looks set to be contentious. Two semi-finals take place on the 14th and 16th May, with the final being held on the 18th May. Forty-one contestants will battle it out in the semis.

Oddschecker Eurovision: who are the bookies’ favourites?
The Netherlands are favoured by bookmakers to be victorious at Eurovision 2019. Bet365, Betfred and Ladbrokes are all offering decimal odds of 3.5 (or 5/2 in fractional odds) on Duncan Laurence’s effort “Arcade”. Most online bookies’ have placed the Dutchman at the top of the pile, with Coral going so far as to offer odds as close as 5/4.
However, odds on the other favourites are close, too. Russia’s Sergey Lazarev has been given an overall winning chance of 13% (based on average odds) for his track “Scream”. Unibet is offering odds of 5/1 on Lazarev – the longest odds at present for the singer.

Who are the Eurovision 2019 outsiders?
The uncertainty regarding Brexit might affect the United Kingdom at the public vote, meaning that some bookmakers are offering odds as long as 100/1 for Michael Rice to be victorious with his song “Bigger Than Us”. However, Montenegro’s D-Mol is the competition’s darkest horse, with odds of 249/1 for the track “Heaven”.
Regardless of who is victorious on May 18th, one thing remains certain: Eurovision 2019 will be a glorious affair enjoyed by millions around the continent, and indeed the world..
