Rehearsals are well underweight in Stockholm, Sweden and it is making an impact on the betting odds. The top 10 (to win):
Malta and Armenia saw the most significant movement in a positive way. The rehearsals have not been good to Sweden who has steadily dropped in the odds. We will most likely see Italy drop more with Bulgaria and Serbia moving up. On the opposite side of the odds, the bottom 5 are: Slovenia, FYR Macedonia, Moldova, San Marino, and Switzerland. Thanks to a successful rehearsal FYR Macedonia may move up much more.
The countries least likely to make the final are San Marino, Montenegro, Switzerland, Moldova, and Finland. Semi final 1 is still a bloodbath. According to the betting odds the least likely to make it through:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- San Marino
Semi final 2 is being characterized as the least competitive with the top being rounded out by Ukraine, Australia, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Latvia (in that order). Least likely to make it to the final from semi final 2:
- FYR Macedonia
After the last few rehearsals, Georgia may move up along with Kaliopi’s entry.
