Eurovision Song Contest 2021 Betting Odds

Eurovision 2021 contestants from Iceland, Russia and Sweden.

Updated: March 2021.

The gambling world never ceases to want to make weird bets. Bets on Game of Thrones deaths, odds on Kim and Kanye’s baby name and even US politics. The most popular non-standard bet in 2021 is, however, the Eurovision Song Contest.

The biggest song contest in the world is as predictable as a horse race in which all the horses are making their first appearance. 

But that’s precisely what makes it so appealing for thousands of bettors worldwide.

Seeing the number of viewers (and bettors) that the contest attracts every year, online bookmakers are prone to offer their odds on the winning country.

Eurovision 2019 Results, 2020 Postponement, and a Look at 2021

As most odds have indicated last year, the Netherlands won with Duncan Laurence’s song “Arcade” and Eurovision 2020 was supposed to take place in Rotterdam.

Italy and Russia came in second and third, despite the odds for them being at the longer end of the spectrum — 15/1. A potential runner-up Australia only took the 9th place, despite the more hopeful odds of 5/1.

The 2020 event was postponed to 2021 due to the global health event.

Eurovision 2020 Cancellation 

On March 18, 2020, the European Broadcasting Union gave a press release in which they said that Eurovision 2020 would be canceled.

As was the case with many other public events, Eurovision was canceled due to health concerns because of the global health event.

The EBU stated that the contest is in the midst of talks about the contest taking place next year with the same participants. This would mirror the decision made by UEFA in regard to Euro 2020, which was also moved to 2021.

Later on, however, some countries decided to hold a separate selection process for 2021.

Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light

Instead of Eurovision 2020, the May 16, 2020 television slot was taken up by an event called “Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light”. 

During this event, all of the 2020 songs were played, but no winner were chosen.

Eurovision 2019 Betting Odds

Note: the odds below were relevant during the Eurovision 2019 contest.

The final will see 17 countries. These include the 10 finalists that proceeded thanks to the vote. Additionally, the Big 5 (UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany. And finally, the host country (Israel) and Australia. Tthe odds on the top 10 contenders were:

  1. Netherlands 13/20
  2. Australia 5/1
  3. Sweden 12/1
  4. Switzerland 12/1
  5. Russia 15/1
  6. Italy 15/1
  7. Azerbaijan 16/1
  8. Iceland 22/1
  9. France 30/1
  10. Norway 70/1

Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke’s has surged from a 9th to 2nd place among the favorites. Even though Duncan Laurence of the Netherlands is largely in the lead, Kate’s earlier precedent can pose a challenge.

Other finalists are mostly performers that were predicted earlier. However, the contest did not go without some upsets. Armenia didn’t qualify for the final, while Albania unexpectedly came out on top. Check out all the performers of the Grand Final in a video below:
