Cyprus now clear favourites as Eurovision odds slashed
Our traders have dramatically cut odds of Cyprus winning Eurovision just hours before the event takes place.
With little over 24 hours to go until the competition in Lisbon on Saturday evening, bets are flying in thick and fast for Cyprus. This has seen the nation’s latest price shorten once again, making them the clear favourites at 6/5.
Punters are also showing interest in former front-runners Israel once again, and Netta is now rated as a 3/1 shot to be crowned this year’s champion.
Unfortunately it’s bad news for UK fans, as SuRie’s odds of winning have drifted from an outside 100/1 to a whopping 150/1.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “It’s starting to look like a proper two-horse race between Cyprus and Israel for Eurovision glory, and punters reckon Eleni Foureira is pulling ahead down the home straight.”
