As we rattle through the glum, and all too long, winter of our discontent the Eurovision Song Contest is back. With perfect timing the ridiculous songs, outlandish performances and bizarre scenery are here to entertain you. Even better, online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 will give you odds on Eurovision 2021. So, if you need a little flutter, this is just perfect. Should you back the UK’s entrant or bet on France, Malta or Italy instead? The fabulous choice is yours.
Of course, you should already know that putting a bet on the UK to win Eurovision is probably madness. The UK wasn’t all that popular to start with, but after Brexit? Not a chance. James Newman doesn’t have a hope. Remember, the UK needed Katrina and the Waves to win in 1997, the last time they won. So really, if you’re going to bet on Eurovision 2021, you might want to back someone else. Europe isn’t going to quickly forget just how much the UK doesn’t like them.
Fortunately, whilst the UK entry is likely to fall flat, there are plenty of other crazy songs to choose. Although, quite honestly, you’d have to be clinically insane to bet on Norway. A bet on Tix to win with “Fallen Angel” at online betting sites in the UK like Bet365 is going at 125/1. There is a good reason for this. He’s a very poor bet on Eurovision 2021. The contest has plenty of them. For songs that actually have a chance to win you have to look far higher on the tree.
Ukraine Entry Will Techno Prisoners
For those drinking heavily Bulgaria and Switzerland border the edges of possibility. They both get 14/1 at online bookies in the UK and could win. If there’s some sort of disaster with a body count. However, it is perhaps a bet on Iceland at 12/1 that will attract the longshot fans. Daoi Freyr should have won last year, but there wasn’t the last year. So they’re back, and if you’re a believer in karmic justice a superb bet on Eurovision 2021. Trouble is others get shorter odds.

Notably, Ukraine have moved up to 8/1 in recent days. Their entry Go_A takes a traditional folk song and gives it the techno treatment. The crowd will love it, but will the voting public at home? Some will bet on Ukraine thinking a win for them would be a finger up to Vladimir Putin, others won’t notice. They’ll be the ones voting for Malta. Anyone in the UK gambling laws of modern woke behavior won’t see that entry get a boost should pay more attention. But bet on Malta? Nah.
Find Your Bet On Eurovision 2021 At Bet365
Malta gets 4/1 at Bet365 etc but the French have moved ahead. France are now a 3/1 bet on Eurovision 2021. That despite their entry seemingly doing a rather poor impression of someone else. She’s got a voice, and the song is okay, but it is very French and that won’t play well everywhere. Unlike the Italian entry. Maneskin are 12/5 right now. Yes, yes, a bet on Italy to win the Eurovision Song Contest is a bit weird. They’re not really known for their music, are they?

However, the rockers look to blow the doors off the Rotterdam venue. They get that right and the audience at home could see them to victory. That said, the odds on Italy are a little short, the song a bit trite. On the night, with everyone looking to have a good time and not take it too seriously, I think that 8/1 on Ukraine could prove the best bet on Eurovision 2021. Sure, it’s a silly novelty wager, but you can’t always bet on sports in the UK, and this is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
We take a look at why a bet on Eurovision 2021 might be the perfect remedy for those rainy spring blues.
