Bets made on Eurovision betting markets are highly accurate – as long as you know how to bet! Finding the best odds when betting on the European song contest is easy because the majority of markets are done properly and have clear bet types. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that all European odds are perfect, so you will have to do some research to find the best betting specials on Eurovision.
General Rules For Eurovision-Related Bets
Before you start betting on Eurovision, it is important to note a couple of things. First, you cannot bet on your own country. This is most often done by people who are trying to avoid paying commissions on their bets. Second, you cannot bet on events that have not yet taken place. For example, you cannot bet on the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest because it has not yet started. Third, sportsbooks often have restrictions on what countries you can place sports bets in. Unless you meet the criteria for registration as a sports betting client, you will not be able to open an account and make a bet.
Understanding The 2021 Eurovision Song Contest
The 2021 Eurovision Song Contest is an annual song contest that was established in 1956 and is currently one of the world’s largest music competitions.
The 2021 edition will be the 65th annual contest and will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel on 14th May 2021.
A record 37 countries will be participating in the contest this year, which will be expanded from 34 countries in 2020.
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) announced in February 2021 that they would be expanding the number of participating countries by two this year and inviting Montenegro and Serbia to join the dance.
The contest will consist of two parts: a semi-final and a final.
The semi-final will be a mix of songs from previous contests and new songs. The top ten entries from the semi-final will qualify for the final, where they will be joined by three or four wildcards.
The final is determined by televoting, so unless you’re a fan of Tolstoy, the results are not guaranteed to be accurate.
