If you’re looking to bet on the 2017 Eurovision in the US, this article will help break down some of the betting favorites and underdogs.
The 2017 Eurovision contest will officially begin on May 9th. Most of the countries in Europe (with the notable exception of Russia) will be taking part, and Intertops is offering some incredible odds for fans in the United States. Let’s take a look at some of the best bets available.
Eurovision betting favorites
If you want to bet on the 2017 Eurovision in the US, the first thing you should realize is it’s an extremely unpredictable event. Unlike sporting event with clear betting favorites, this singing competition is often won by countries that even Eurovision betting experts couldn’t have predicted. With that being said, there are a number of favorites heading into this year’s event.
At the top of the betting odds is Italy, who last won the competition in 1990. Singing for this country will be Francesco Gabbani performing “Occidentali’s Karma.” Italy’s odds are set at 2.00. Bulgaria has emerged as the second betting favorite this year with odds of 6.00.
Eurovision betting underdogs
As we mentioned before, wagering on the Eurovision contest can be risky as it’s often unpredictable. At the same time, that offers people who like to bet on sports in the US some great opportunities to earn money.
A few of the best Eurovision underdog betting options this year include Australia. This country has only participated in 2 contests thus far, and came close to winning in 2016. Some feel their chances to win have never been higher, and they have some great odds to cash out at 21.00.
If you’re feeling really lucky, consider betting on Ireland to win Eurovision this year. They have 7 wins to their credit, but haven’t had much success over the past 20 years. You could argue that their popularity has never been higher than it is right now, and they have a real shot at making US gambling news with the upset victory. Ireland’s odds to win are set at 51.00.
