#BETTING ODDS 2020 – Who do the bookies think will win in Rotterdam? March 9th Edition

Last time we had a look at the betting odds, only Albania had declared and it was a bit odd only having a Top 1 – but with the majority of entries now known for Rotterdam, it’s time to take a look again at the betting odds!

Remember, betting odds are calculated on the likelihood of something happening based on previous experience and information currently available. have started publishing the odds for 2020 – so let’s take a look at the Top 10!

After a few days of leapfrogging over one another, Lithuania and Iceland have given way to Bulgaria, who are now seen as favourites to win the contest in May. Russia is still in the Top 10, despite not having announced their song just yet, while Malta’s earlier reveal of Destiny’s All My love sees them in 8th. Switzerland and Romania are also flying high at 4th and 6th respectively. Germany and Italy are the only Big 5 nations in the Top 10, at 9th and 7th.

Down at the other end of the scale, these countries form the Bottom 10 in the betting odds:

Curiously, half of the Bottom 10 are songs selected during the flurry of national selections over the last 2 weekends. Similarly, the recent hype behind Austria and Cyprus revealing their songs seems to have fallen flat with both songs landing near the bottom of the odds. Slovenia are deemed to be the country furthest away from lifting that microphone trophy, while Spain are the only Big 5 member this far down.

So, if your Eurovision scoreboard looks like this, you may be on to something!
