Are you finding the early part of the year a bit of a drag? Do you need something to distract you from the tricky road we tread? Well don’t panic because the Eurovision Song Contest is right around the corner. Yes, it’s time to go over the top again, place that tongue firmly in your cheek and bet on Eurovision 2021. It’s probably just what we all need. After all, there’s nothing like a silly novelty wager at online sportsbook sites in the Netherlands like Bet365 to cheer you up.
Yes, that’s right. It doesn’t matter if your bet on Eurovision 2021 is part of an ironic interest. No one will mind if you don’t take it all that seriously. Taking it seriously is almost against the rules. However, with everyone in need of a good excuse to party, the kitsch contest couldn’t be better timed. Guaranteed to bring some sparkle to our drab springtime this flamboyant competition is right on cue. So don’t squander this perfect opportunity to smile a little at the talented, or not.
Sadly, not everyone will get to the finals in Rotterdam. Some because they’re not talented or popular enough. Some for political reasons. A few right-wing governments have withdrawn their participation. They claim the contest is “too gay”. You have to laugh. It’s like complaining Faberge eggs are a tad gaudy. Still, you can bet on Eurovision 2021 not missing them much. Let them bet on sports in the Netherlands instead if they wish. The rest of us can enjoy the show.
Bulgaria Or Iceland Could Be Great Eurovision Bets
You can bet on Eurovision 2021 to go above and beyond. There’s just no way the producers will let this opportunity slip. Expect outlandish performances, bizarre scenery and weird lighting plus a distanced audience out to impress. We need a spectacle like this right now, and they know it. So you’ve every reason to check out the odds on Eurovision 2021 where right now Malta is favorite. The small Mediterranean island is currently just 3/1 to win the contest. But can it go all the way?
Bet On Eurovision 2021
- Finland – 35/1
- Norway – 35/1
- Cyprus – 28/1
- Sweden – 22/1
- Lithuania – 22/1
- Bulgaria – 14/1
- Iceland – 14/1
- Italy – 5/1
- Switzerland – 5/1
- France – 4/1
- Malta – 3/1
Well their entry, Destiny, has form. She won Junior Eurovision so knows what it’s all about, and the song is a good one. Uplifting and upbeat you can expect it to do well even if it doesn’t win. You may find the French contestant, Barbara Pravi, who currently gets 4/1 at online betting sites in the Netherlands like Bet365, however, does less well. It’s a good song certainly, but perhaps too grave for this year. Of the two, Destiny seems very much the better bet on Eurovision 2021.
Bet On Eurovision 2021 At Bet365
Beyond the two favorites the Swiss loiter with the lightweight ballad “Tout l’Univers”. Unfortunately, it’s a bit ethereal and not as soaring as I feel sure Gjon’s Tears wish. That’s why they only get 5/1, the same price as a bet on Eurovision 2021 seeing an Italian victory. Italy have gone with an indie pop entry called Zitte e buoni. The band Maneskin are all leather and guitars, which is fine, but it might be too heavy to really get support from the pod people voting at home.
“With an ever-changing situation we are taking our time to ensure that we can host the Eurovision Song Contest in the best and safest way possible.”

Perhaps a more interesting bet on Eurovision 2021 is on Iceland or Bulgaria. Iceland would probably have won in 2020 if the contest had gone ahead. Their quirky pop entry this year may well just grab the audience. Sure, those taking advantage of Dutch gambling laws at Bet365 will find them hanging around at 14/1, but that’s not bad. Bulgaria get the same price and their entry could well hit all the right notes too. So, whilst Malta may look a shoo-in, anything could happen.
As the acts rehearse, and the finals take shape, we take a look at some of the prices on offer for a bet on Eurovision 2021.
