Eurovision 2018 – Grand Final Preview – Odds & Predictions



Eurovision – Odds by Betstar

Eurovision 2018 comes to a highly anticipated climax on May 12. Who are the big names to watch & what are their chances? Will the long term bookies favourite, Netta, win for Israel ($4.50) with her #metoo inspired girl anthem, “Toy” or will there be an upset winner?

Cyprus have come from nowhere into outright Eurovision favouritism of $2.25 with a great performance in the Semi Final from Eleni Foureira, with her dance hit, “Fuego”. Her catchy song is not too subtly pitched at being the summer anthem in beach bars and dance clubs all over Europe.

The important Final Running Order has both Cyprus and Israel in the crucial last five.
