Eurovision 2016: Betting Odds Update

Rehearsals are well underweight in Stockholm, Sweden and it is making an impact on the betting odds. The top 10 (to win):

  1. Russia
  2. France
  3. Australia
  4. Malta
  5. Sweden
  6. Armenia
  7. Ukraine
  8. Italy
  9. Bulgaria
  10. Serbia

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:

  • Estonia
  • Austria
  • Greece
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Moldova
  • Finland
  • Montenegro
  • 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:

  • Belgium
  • Ireland
  • Belarus
  • FYR Macedonia
  • Georgia
  • Slovenia
  • Albania
  • Switzerland

After the last few rehearsals, Georgia may move up along with Kaliopi’s entry.

I’m Alesia and I’m that rare American Eurovision fan. I’ve been obsessed since 2010. How could I not fall in love with a competition that has grandmothers, polish milkmaids, and rapping twins on stage?Although I love to sing, I leave it to the professionals to “wow” me. So I majored in Broadcast Journalism in college and am currently a radio personality in Washington, DC. with Mix 107.3 owned by Cumulus Media.I love to vlog, blog, and tweet. When I’m not behind my computer I’m at happy hour with my friends or figuring out what color to dye my hair.
