With 60 days until the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest begins, let’s take a look at how the bookmakers predict this year’s contest will pan out. Last year however, the bookmakers at this point had Austria winning at around 40/1, not changing until after the semi finals, with the Netherlands at around 150/1. Although in previous years they had Emmelie from Denmark as hot favourite and in the previous year they had Loreen as hot favourite. Will the bookmakers be correct in 2015?
As opposed to looking at all bookmakers, we will take a look art one of the leading companies, William Hill:
20/1 United Kingdom
100/1 Czech Republic
100/1 San Marino
All bookmakers currently have Sweden as the favourite to win in May, as well as all holding Italy second favourite to win, and Estonia third favourite to win. After that all bookmakers have different countries in different positions.
Over the next sixty days the odds may not change too much, but once the first semi final is over the odds will change dramatically, as we have seen in previous years.
