Eurovision 2022: bookmakers have changed bets on the winner

On Tuesday, May 10, the first semi-final of the largest Eurovision Song Contest 2022 will take place.

Two days before the start of the international song contest, bookmakers updated their predictions for the winner. Previously, bookmakers estimated the victory of Ukraine at 42%, and after two rehearsals of the Ukrainian group Kalush Orchestra, the rates increased by another 1% - up to 43%, Eurovision World writes.

Two days before the first semi-final of Eurovision 2022, they changed their bets again. Now Ukraine is predicted to win by an even larger margin - 45%. In second place is Italy, whose chances are estimated at 13%.

In turn, the soloist of the Kalush Orchestra Oleg Psyuk said that Ukraine can win the competition not only because of the war.

Of course, there is a forecast and bookmakers, but even before the war we were given fifth place, which means that the Europeans like our song,” Psyuk said.
