Ralf Gyllenhammar to win the Swedish Eurovision Song Contest 2013
Kind of special bet this but I'm still adding it. The Swedish Eurovision Song Contest is split up in 6 parts. First 4 qualifying rounds, followed by a "second chance" for songs placed 3-4 in the qualifiers, then the grand finale. This is the final, so all songs have been heard by the people. The bookies have young boy YOHIO as a huge favorite (odds 1,35), but to me that is absolute rubbish. The odds I mean, the song is OK, this is not a "oh I hate him so much he can not win"-bet, I just have a feeling he won't do so. The odds have been weird before, I picked Sate of Drama to reach the final at odds 10,00 so their not always correct.
One reason for the odds is that YOHIO is the leader of the Facebook votings, but hey, Facebook is not all people. Ulrik Munther is also a professional who finished second in this competition last year, and this year he's got a better song. The contender is a rock ballad by Ralf Gyllenhammar, which is also a good song that went straight to the final. I think the odds especially for Munther will go down so I'm adding these now.
Sweden also uses international jury votes to make sure the song is liked in Europe, and I can't see them preferring YOHIO's song. The jury countries this year will be Cyprus, France, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Croatia, Malta, Spain, United Kingdom, Germany and Ukraine.
