2023 Eurovision Song Contest Picks

First Place: Finland – Kaarija – Cha Cha Cha

To win Eurovision, you must impress two different sets of voters. First, the juries must like you, your song, etc. Second, you must finish either first or second in the televote.

To be fair, you don’t have to finish first or second in the televote to win. But the nation that wins often finished first or second in the televote.

When it comes to this year’s televote, no doubt, Kaarija, with his song Cha Cha Cha, will either grab second place or first place televotes. It’s as close to a sure thing as possible, which means at +375, Finland is a decent play.

Second Place: Sweden – Loreen – Tattoo

The odds on Sweden doesn’t make Loreen an underlay. The odds are fair. Oddsmakers believe Loreen and Sweden have a 46% chance of winning Eurovision 2023.

Although 46% is a tad high, it’s tough to disagree with those looking to back the chalk. Loreen’s Tattoo performance is exceptional.

Not only that, but the juries should favor Loreen over Kaarija. No qualms with any Eurovision handicapper looking to make a few dollars on the chalk.

Third Place: Norway – Alessandra – Queen of Kings

The odds make Norway a slight overlay. Televoters love Alessandra’s performance for Queen of Kings.

What gives Alessandra a leg up is that the song is the type the juries want to cast a vote towards. Cha Cha Cha is too poppy. Tattoo is great but its not a big enough production. Queen of Kings could surprise.

Top Underdog: Italy – Marco Mengoni – Due Vite

Like Queen of Kings, Due Vite is the type of song the juries will like. The problem Marco Mengoni could have is securing the backing of enough televoters.

Mengoni just sings. He doesn’t have a production like Kaarija. With that being written, just singing might be the way to go at this year’s Eurovision.

Afterall, everyone else hides the fact their songs are subpar with flash. Not Mengoni. He delivers a powerful performance with just his voice and his presence. That could work in his favor. For sure, Italy and Marco Mengoni offer overlay odds.
