We’ve now seen the countries from the first semi-final rehearse for the second time.  By now, their performances should be polished and their betting odds should be a bit more settled.

Outright betting odds

Armenia is still the clear favourite, with 2/1 the best odds on them achieving an outright win.  There’s not been much movement in the top three, but fourth and downwards appear to be trading places.  Interestingly, we’ve not even seen some of the countries rehearse yet, so making a judgement call on some is tricky at the moment.  The full list is HERE (as at 3 May), but the current top five is:

  1. Armenia
  2. Sweden
  3. Denmark
  4. United Kingdom
  5. Ukraine

Hungary and Azerbaijan are the next best countries from the first semi-final in the rankings with San Marino and Portugal bringing up the rear if you fancy a longer-odds flutter.

The top 10 songs favoured by the bookies to qualify are:

  1. Armenia
  2. Sweden
  3. Ukraine
  4. Hungary
  5. Azerbaijan
  6. Belgium
  7. Russia
  8. Estonia
  9. Montenegro
  10. Netherlands

Azerbaijan has been overtaken by Ukraine and Hungary, whilst the Netherlands slipping but still holding onto that crucial 10th place.

Betting odds to qualify from semi-final 2

The top 10 songs expected to qualify, according the bookies are below.  These rehearse again today, so expect some movement in the coming hours.

  1. Norway
  2. Austria
  3. Israel
  4. Romania
  5. Greece
  6. Malta
  7. Finland
  8. Ireland
  9. Poland
  10. Switzerland

These are the same 10 as last time, with Romania and Ireland falling and Israel rising.

Stay tuned for the rolling blog for the second rehearsal of the second semi-final – with good rehearsals we may see Slovenia and Lithuania move up from 11th and 12th.  But who do you think will be there?
