COPENHAGEN, DENAMARK – In previous years (2012 and 2013) it was no big secret that the winners were known days (if not weeks) before the contest itself. This year, it’s an all different story. We are about to experience a very open competition and no one can really predict the outcome of ESC2014. Even if there are early favourites, surprises should be expected in both semi-finals and the final. Let’s have the look of predictions so far OGAE Poll (after all 40 clubs have voted): Sweden is the top favourite of the organized fans with Hungary and Israel following up. We barely believe that those three can actually win at the moment. On oikotimes.com’s Europrediction almost 26,000 unique voters predict: Armenia, Sweden and Hungary secure a spot in the final while Greece, Norway and Israel should also easily qualify from the second semifinal to the final. Betting Odds from OddsChecker.com: For the first semifinal Armenia, Sweden and Hungary secure a spot in the final and Norway Romania and Greece from second semifinal. For the final ultimate favourite remains Armenia with Sweden and Denmark following up.
In less than a month we will know the big winner of the 59th Eurovision Song Contest but bets and polls are heating up trying to predict the winner of this year’s contest. In betting odds Armenia landslides over all 37 countries as top favourite while Sweden tops the current OGAE International voting. In YouTube Armenia leads the viewing counter on the official Eurovision account. Checking the semifinal bets and polls we see tha besides 2-3 secure favourites (i.e. Armenia, Sweden, Greece, Norway) the rest of the participating countries are fighting badly for a spot in the final.
We are back with some interesting updates on the bets and polls about Eurovision 2014. On Oddschecker.com, the betting offices still predict Armenia as the winner of #Eurovision 2014, followed by Sweden (last year’s host country) and Denmark (this year’s host country). On oikotimes.com’s Europrediction, Armenia and Greece lead each semifinal respectively with more than 17,000 unique votes counted so far. YouTube view counts from official EBU page give a strong lead to Armenia although in overall YouTube views the Polish entry remains the most viewed video on the web this year. The annual OGAE International voting still in early voting with only Belarus and Bulgaria casting their votes and therefore no significant result attention needed here.
According to betting site Oddschecker.com, Armenia will be romping home with the title this year. Aram mp3 have already been established as the hottest favourite to win the contest at 11/10 and 6/5 odds on. Sweden with Sanna Nielsen and ”Undo” and Norway with Carl Espen and ”Silent Storm” are close behind, at 5 and 11/2 respectively. Hungary and Belgium follow up, with Azerbaijan, Denmark, United Kingdom, Romania and Ukraine completing the top 10. Meanwhile, it’s worth noting that the Russian twins struggle to enter the top 10 ( considering the politics this year many fans think that they will even stay in the semi-final), while the eccentric Conchita Wurst is currently 15th and the famous greek trio 20th ( something though we expect it’s going to change after their official rehearsals in May, as we all know that one of Greece’s strengths in the contest has been their ability to put on a strong stage show).
We got a first preview of the first impressions of the betting odds when launched in January. Today we have 27 songs (from 27 participating in Eurovision 2014) and we would like to take a glimpse of what the bookies predict for the grand final in Copenhagen. Thanks to our colleagues at Oddschecker.com we see that the top five is made by Norway (no selected song yet), Sweden, Azerbaijan (no song announced yet although we the singer is known), Hungary and Armenia conclude the top five. For those wondering for Greece, today the country is placed 19th!
The first report on betting odds are here. Nicerodds.co.uk presents a timetable of an overview from various European betting offices in which currently Russia is in the lead, although the country has not selected singer and song for Copenhagen. Armenia, Azerbaijan, Norway and Greece follow up (also countries without a song selected for Eurovision 2014). On the other hand Oddschecker.com overview claim Ireland as the winner at the moment. It’s still to early of course!
