Eurovision Song Contest 2023: a week before the final, Ukraine drops in the bookmakers' rankings
The Ukrainian duo TVORCHI, which had been a favourite of bookmakers for many months, lost ground a week before the grand final. Not long ago, Ukraine was ranked 3rd, but today it has moved down.
Only 6% of European fans who placed their bets believe in the victory of the Ukrainian musicians. The live rating can be viewed on the Eurovision World website (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photo).
So far, the top 5 of the bookmakers' list looks like this:
1. The Swedish representative Loreen has significantly broken away from her competitors in the bookmakers' ratings. With a 39% probability, the singer, who already won the contest in 2012, can lead her country to victory again. It is worth noting that 5 days ago this coefficient was 42%.
2. Finland's Käärijä, who will set the stage on fire with their dance track Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha, is at number 24 in the ranking.
3. The French singer La Zarra with her song Évidemment is ahead of Ukraine in the list. She has only 8%.
4. A week before the grand final, Ukrainian duo TVORCHI took fourth place with their track Heart of Steel, dedicated to Azovstal's unbreakable defenders. Our win rate is 6%.
5. Spain rounds out the top five, with 4% believing in its victory.
