The Eurovision song contest gets underway for another year. With an expected audience of over 180 million people worldwide. But which song will triumph in the Grand Final in Lisbon on May 12? This article contains our 2018 Eurovision Song Contest betting preview, expert tips on Winner, Top 4, Top 10, Top Scandinavian and so on, plus the best odds, no deposit free bets and bookie promotions!

 

EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2018 BETTING PREVIEW 

This year's entries span almost every conceivable kind of music, from heavy metal and country and western to pop, Balkan folk and highly questionable rap.

Favourites Israel and Cyprus, with their contrasting but equally powerful songs, still look like the main contenders. Cyprian artist Eleni Foureira brings a full-on choreographed production to Eurovision this year. Israel's Netta comes with an incredible quirky song “Toy”, and the loopy vocals are a stroke of genius.

The two favourite nations will be perhaps joined by the subtler songs of Lithuania, Germany and France. Lithuanian artist Ieva Zasimauskaite comes with a power ballad worthy of being played at things like weddings, French band Madame Monsieur gets political in her entry and in true French style sings in their native language (something that could be a handicap) while Germany is being represented by entrant Michael Schulte (who started out as a YouTube singer and looks a German answer to Ed Sheeran), who will be performing You Let Me Walk Alone.

Russia, back in the Eurovision fold after they were refused permission to compete in Ukraine last year, suffered a shocking elimination in the semifinals.

The performer from Estonia, Elina Nechayeva, is 2018’s opera singer. Elina goes through a range of complex emotions – from sadness, mild-happiness, to complete happiness - as she is singing her song, La Forza.

Eurovision stalwarts Sweden are always right in the mix and 2018 is no exception. Benjamin Ingrosso is taking a very well polished tune to Lisbon which wouldn’t sound out of place on your radio any time of the day.

This year’s diluted Viking-extravaganza is brought to us by Denmark. "Higher Ground" is cringe-worthy and catchy; exactly how it should be.

There isn’t a great deal of buzz around the UK’s entry, as confirmed by the 500/1 odds. So, the Brits are unlikely to be taking home the trophy.

Ireland have not won Eurovision since 1996 but are still the country with most victories. Ryan O’Shaughnessy’s ‘Together’ is a hark back to the days of Johnny Logan but is not expected to figure among the front-runners.

Australia are in the mix with a catchy tune sung by Jessica Mauboy, a 28-year-old Australian R&B and pop singer, songwriter, and actress. The song seems to have dropped a little in popularity since February but is now hovering around the 10th favourite spot.

A dark horse could be Austria as Cesar Sampson's ‘Nobody But You’ is the product of a team of writers who have worked with Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend so they know how to put a son together
