In the build-up to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, two countries have caught the attention of punters in the outright winner markets with the announcement of the Dutch and Swiss entries for this year’s competition. The Netherlands have chosen Duncan Lawrence to represent the nation in Israel with a self-composed song called ‘Arcade’. This popular choice has resulted in the odds on the Netherlands winning the competition being more than halved from 16/1 to just 5/1 with Ladbrokes Bookmakers. This places them joint-second amongst most firms behind firm 3/1 favourite Russia. A reported 44% of all bets on the outright market have been aimed in the direction of the Netherlands and as such they have been the most heavily backed nation over the past 24 hours or so.

Switzerland have also revealed their entry for the competition, this being from a well-known name in the European charts. Singer Luca Hanni will be confident of steering his nation to a third Eurovision Song Contest victory with a song called ‘She Got Me’. The Swiss have been a massive mover in the markets with their odds dropping from 33/1 to just 14/1, a reported 24% of all bets being aimed in their direction today.
More Eurovision announcements will be made over the next few weeks although these two have shaken the markets up over the past day or so with bookmakers slashing odds on both entries by more than half.
