The basics of wagering on Eurovision
This isn’t like preparing to bet on a horse race, where form and ‘conditions’ are the be-all-and-end-all. Yes, the previous performances of a particular country over the years isn’t a factor to disregard but it’s actually more about the singer themselves. Are they likeable? Are they talented? Do they embrace the spirit of Eurovision or do they take themselves too seriously?
Don’t focus too much on whether you personally like the song or not. That’s not what it’s about. Think about how everyone else might view them.
There’s no foolproof secret to success when betting on Eurovision. Analysis of past winners helps as does an understanding of trends in terms of the type of performances that tend to win. Overly dramatic and camp performances haven’t fared so well of late so look out for the songs that actually sound nice and have catchy tunes.
