Have the bookies predicted a Eurovision winner based on the current odds?

According to oddschecker.com, the winner and runners up will be:


  1. [Sweden] Sweden – Introducing
  2. [Austria] Austria Introducing
  3. [The Netherlands] The Netherlands – Introducing
  4. [Armenia] Armenia – Introducing | Interview

As seen above, Sweden is the current favourite to win the contest, however, Austria saw a massive jump in the odds after Conchita’s powerful performance in the second semi-final on Thursday. The least favourites to win the contest are San Marino and Belarus.


Every year, each of the OGAE fan clubs vote on who they think will win Eurovision. Looking at the overall contest, the OGAE agree that Sweden is the clear favourite to win the contest, followed by Hungary, Israel which did not qualify after the second semi-final, and then Austria, the United Kingdom, and Armenia. The Netherlands did not crack their top 10, however, the poll was conducted before the televised contest began, and after seeing the performances on stage, many decisions we changed.
