As always, betting on the outcome of the competition is a big deal. Today, we also break down the current Eurovision 2024 favourites, longshots, date of the final, and who to keep your eyes (and money) on heading into the event. So far, the bookmakers' prediction is led by Switzerland, with odds of 7/4 at bet365.

1. Eurovision 2024 Preview: A Quick Background

First held in Lugano, Switzerland, in 1956, Eurovision is the longest-running music contest, bringing together nations from across Europe to watch gifted singers do their thing. With the final viewership in the millions, it pays to speculate and be right on the money. UK's Sam Ryder missed the victory by a whisker in last year's Eurovision hosted by Liverpool. That left Loreen to pencil in the win for Sweden ahead of Finland, Israel, and Italy.

Ireland has the most colourful Eurovision history, having bagged a record seven victories. Finishing in the top 5 eighteen times and as runners-up on eleven occasions over their fifty-six total attempts, it's the only country to win the contest three years in a row between '92 and '94. The host nation, Sweden, matches the Irish winning record.

The first win came in '70, with Johnny Logan doubling down in '80 and '87, followed by a remarkable triple sweep between '92 and '94. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom has entered the continental music competition for 67 years running, since the 2nd edition in 1957.

2. Eurovision 2024: When and Where

The Swedish city of Malmo is the host for the 2024 edition of the ESC. Sweden is no stranger to Eurovision glory, having won the contest seven times over the years, most recently last year in Liverpool.

The semi-final round will kick off the festivities at Malmo Arena on Tuesday, May 7, and Thursday, May 9. Those shows will trim down dozens of contenders to Eurovision 2024 favourites worthy of the coveted Grand Final berth on Saturday, May 11.

3. Eurovision 2024 Odds

Currently, the Eurovision 2024 betting odds favour Switzerland as the most probable winner. This country is represented by Nemo who can be bet on at odds of 7/4 (2.75) with bet365.

Croatia are second favourites, priced at around 3/1 (4.00) by bet365. At 6/1 (7.00) on Unibet, Italy comes third on most Eurovision winner predictions.

Bookies have installed the 2022 winner, Ukraine, as one of the favourites to win, too. With the hit song 'Teresa & Maria,' the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 betting odds show the Ukrainians Alyona Alyona and Jerry Heil have a winning probability as well.

Here is our more detailed breakdown of nations near the top of the Eurovision 2024 betting odds:

3.1 Switzerland

At the moment, it is Switzerland that leads the way to the winning. This is the country which was the first ever host and winner of the competition, as the first edition took place there and their representative became the winner.

Nemo is a Swiss participant in the competition and according to the bookies, has the biggest chances to get the title this year. The rapper's song is "The Code" and can be bet on at 7/4 (2.75) with bet365.

3.2 Croatia

Croatia hasn't won the Eurovision Song Contest so far, however Riva, a band of Croatian origin representing Yugoslavia, won the Eurovision in 1989.

This year, another Croatian artist, Baby Lasagna, has jumped into the front row of Eurovision Contest 2024 betting odds and can be backed at 3/1 (4.00) with bet365.

3.3 Italy

Eurovision winner predictions show Italy has jumped in front of Ukraine in the current odds. The county has taken part in the contest since its first edition in 1956. Angelina Mango, with 'La noia', beat last year's fourth finisher Marco Mengoni to represent Italy. With a striking song and stage show potentially in the works, she is best priced at 11/2 (6.50) by NetBet.

3.4 Ukraine

Ukraine after failing to host last year’s Eurovision Song Contest on their home soil due to the Russian attack, will again compete against other main favourites. As per current ESC 2024 betting odds, they’re strong contenders for a second win in three years.

The best Eurovision Song Contest 2024 betting odds for Ukraine to win are available on bet365 at 11/1 (12.00) or 12/1 (13.00) at Unibet.

3.5 Netherlands

The Netherlands are the fourth among the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 favourites according to bet365 odds, which currently equal 9/2 (5.50). The Dutch singer is Joost Klein with 'his Europapa' song.

3.6 United Kingdom

The UK selection committee has tapped multi-platinum pop songwriter Olly Alexander to carry the nation's hopes at Eurovision 2024 following a disappointing result in 2023. Alexander first found fame fronting the chart-topping band Years & Years before shifting to an acclaimed solo career. With planning underway for a potential uptempo anthem, the UK looks to Alexander's infectious star power and vocal range to make a renewed push-up the Eurovision table in Sweden. The UK is priced to win at 99/1 (100.00) by 1XBET ESC 2024 odds and although it is far from the top 3 countries, it still has chances to surprise its fans.

I’ve been keeping an eye on the other contestants and I have to say that Ukraine, the Netherlands and France are all really good. I saw the Norwegian entry, too, which is brilliant and I think it’s going to be a really fab contest. - Olly Alexander, Cosmopolitan
