SWEDEN have been the big market mover in the Eurovision 2019 betting odds market. They are now just 9/2 on the Betfair betting exchange and considerably shorter with some online bookmakers. However, there is an ‘arb’ (the ability to back and lay a selection giving you the ability to make money regardless of the result) as BetVictor are holding out at 5/1 about the six time winners.

Remarkably, unlike defending champions Israel, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, Sweden are not fast-tracked to the final and they will have to qualify for the final night on Thursday in the second Eurovision 2019 semi-finals.

Their act, a former track and field athlete called John Lundvik, will perform eighth of the 18 acts. Available at 9/1 just a week ago, Sweden still only demand 5% of the vote in the poll and therefore they appear to be way too short in the Eurovision 2019 betting odds. 

Price Shifts – Eurovision 2019 Betting Odds Update

The weight of money for Sweden has seen long standing favourites, the Netherlands, drift out from 7/4 to 9/4 at Unibet.  That’s really interesting as Unibet has a big footprint within that country. Other notable market movers include Russia who are out to 9/1 (Unibet) from 11/2, and Italy are now 14’s (bet365*) from 9/1.

Beyond the big Eurovision 2019 betting odds move for Sweden, Azerbaijan are the other big betting story. Available at 50/1 just six days ago, William Hill are now just 6/1 about the 2011 winners who have reached the finals in ten of the eleven years they have taken part in this competition. They have also finished in the top-10 six times and so Betway’s 11/1 may not last much longer.

Azerbaijan have a plot draw, the pimp seat, in the second semi-final performing 18 of 18. They are 7/1 to win this with Paddy Power which looks a great value each-way Eurovision 2019 bet but do check each-way terms carefully as Paddy Power terms are positions 1-2 and 1/3rd the odds while Ladbrokes, who go 6/1, are offering positions 1-2-3 but 1/5th the odds.
