Eesti Laul 2021 betting odds are out. The annual Estonian music show is ready to reveal this year’s performer on Eurovision Song Contest. Who has the best chances to win and perform on the ESC stage this May?
Eesti Laul is an annual music competition in Estonia that belongs to ERR. The show aims to define the next representative of the country at Eurovision Song Contest – the most popular music competition in Europe. It replaced Eurolaul that performs this function until 2009.
The show is very popular in Estonia with 250.000 viewers watching the final, on average. Before the final, 20 songs compete in semi-finals with only five artists proceeding to the next stage from each. The winner is selected through 2 rounds of voting: the jury & viewers and viewers only.
The 2021 Eesti Laul is in its full flow as of February. Its final will take place on March 6, so save the date and bet on the possible winner of the show! Online gambling sites in Estonia will help you with the odds, while we are going to introduce the main favorites.
Who can represent Estonia on Eurovision 2021?
This year’s Eesti Laul can boast of 24 contestants competing for the right to perform on the ESC stage. They include both new artists and previous Eurovision contestants such as Ivo Linna, Koit Toome, Tanja, and Jüri Pootsmann. Is there anyone who entered the top-3 as favorites, according to online sportsbooks in Estonia? Let’s see.
- Jüri Pootsmann is the third most-expected Estonia’s representative at the ESC. By Eesti Laul 2021 betting odds, his chances of winning are third-best. Pootsmann has already performed on Eurovision in 2016 where he placed 18th (last) in one of the semi-finals;
- Koit Toome is another former ESC contestant aiming for revanche. He participated in the 1998 Eurovision with the song “Mere Lapsed”. Unlike Pootsmann, Toome reached the grand final and occupied 12th place. Maybe, that’s why his winning chances in 2021 are second-highest;
- Uku Suviste is an Estonian singer-songwriter who had to represent Estonia on ESC in 2020 but the show was canceled. Last year, the public chose his song “What Love Is” which had good winning odds. This year, Suviste competes for the right to reenter ESC with a new hit and viewers seem to be on his side.
