They are the only favorite. Bookmakers have updated bets after the first semifinal of Eurovision 2024

Bookmakers predict Croatia's victory, but ratings have changed slightly

On Tuesday, May 7, the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 took place in Malmö, Sweden, where the first 10 participants who will perform in the grand final were selected. Among them were many of those predicted by bookmakers, including Croatia, which has been at the top of the ranking since May 2. Baby Lasagna's chances of winning the crystal microphone are steadily increasing and now stand at 36%.

Yesterday, an hour before the first semifinal, this figure was 35%, and at 10:30 am it was only 29%. It seems that bookmakers have already chosen their favorite, and the possibility of getting the last place in the grand final based on the results of the jury and viewers' voting is almost non-existent (less than 1%), just like in Ukraine. You can follow the changes in the ranking in real time on the Eurovision World website.

Ukraine still holds the 4th place in the overall ranking of the finalists, although the probability of winning has decreased to 8%, as opposed to 10% half a day before the first semifinal, where Jerry Heil and alyona alyona performed at number 5 and even made it to the grand final with the song Teresa & Maria. Although the singers' odds dropped, the bet of one of the major bookmakers BET365 increased by almost half.

The second place in the overall ranking for the winner is still occupied by Switzerland, whose representative will perform in the second semifinal. Today, its odds have increased by 2% since yesterday and amount to 17%. Third place goes to Italy, whose odds remained unchanged at 10%, although it is not known whether this figure will change after Angelina Mango's performance in the second semifinal on May 9.
