Eurovision Betting

Many online bookmakers now offer betting odds for the Eurovision Song Contest. The song contest is televised annually to see which nation can pen and perform the best original three-minute-or-less pop song. Love it or hate it, the Eurovision is here to stay. Eurovision betting is now a popular sector of the online music betting industry with both punters and bookmakers putting their money where their ear is and trying to make a quick buck by predicting not only who will win Europe’s premier song contest but also in a variety of other markets.

History of Eurovision betting

The contest has been held every year since 1956, during which time it has steadily grown in size. In recent years, viewers have seen the inclusion of further participating nations, many of which have come from former Eastern Bloc territories. Because the event is not restricted to European nations (Israel, for example, have participated in the past) but to members of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the Eurovision has potential to get even bigger. And as the contest grows, so too will the betting markets.

Although indelibly associated in the popular imagination with partisan political voting on the part of participant nations, the Eurovision Song Contest may have done more to encourage co-operation between European nations than the EU.

The contest is also commonly associated with the kind of hopeless musical amateurs that truly deserve "nul points", yet the Eurovision has had its fair share of both prestigious entrants and those who later found fame, including ABBA, Lulu, Sandie Shaw, Cliff Richard, Julio Iglesias, Olivia Newton-John, Céline Dion, Katrina and the Waves, and, of course, the legendary Dana International. The contest has also provided us with such memorable musical milestones as Volare, Abba"s Waterloo, Making Your Mind Up by Bucks Fizz, and, of course, the immortal A-Ba-Ni-Bi, Israel"s entry in the 1978 Eurovision.
