After the 2nd rehearsal in the Altice Arena in Lisbon, the Cypriot representative Eleni Foureira has overtaken the Israeli representative Netta Barzilai as bookmakers’ favourite to win the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.
Bookmakers as Ladbrokes, Coral, William Hill and Black Type have a new winner. Fuego is the new #1.
Israeli representative Netta Barzilai was a clear favourite to win the Eurovision Song Contest with the bookmakers, since their song was published on the official Eurovision channel on YouTube on March 11. Netta has spent 8 weeks on the number one position of the bookmakers.
When it was first announced that Eleni Foureira will represent Cyprus in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest the bookmakers had Eleni on 34th place to win Eurovision. After her first rehearsal on 30 April 2018, she took a giant jump to the 8th place. And in the last week she has continued to advance by the bookmakers.
The current top five according to the main bookmakers at the moment are:
- Cyprus – Eleni Foureira – Fuego
- Israel – Netta – Toy
- Norway – Alexander Rybak – That’s How You Write A Song
- Estonia – Elina Nechayeva – La Forza
- France – Madame Monsieur – Merc
