Australia is now the fifth favourite to win the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, ahead of the first Semi-Final this evening in Israel.
Kate Miller-Heidke of Australia has entered the top five favourites to win the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel. Australia had ten days ago been 16th favourite to win the competition, but the betting odds have all changed since their first rehearsal just over a week ago.
Australia’s rise into the top five has come at the expense of Azerbaijan who have been dropped down into sixth place. Australia has not been this heavily backed to win the Eurovision Song Contest since 2016 when Dami Im went on to finished second in Stockholm, Sweden.
The current top ten favourites to win the contest are:
- The Netherlands – 23% (+1%)
- Sweden – 14% (-2%)
- France – 10% (+1%)
- Russia – 9%
- Australia – 7%(+3 places, +3%)
- Azerbaijan – 7% (-1 place)
- Italy – 5% (-1%)
- Switzerland – 4% (+1 place)
- Malta – 3% (-3 places, -2%)
- Iceland – 3%
Over the past couple of days Malta has been the biggest faller in the top ten, having slipped down three places and lost 2% points from their chance of winning. At the top of the odds, the Netherlands has stabalised in the low 20s, and remains the favourite to win the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.
