Eurovision 2023: Current betting odds and favourites - will UK’s Mae Muller win the contest?
Eurovision 2023 is here - but who are the current favourites to win and does the UK’s Mae Muller stand a chance taking home the trophy?
Eurovision 2023 is finally here with just minutes to go until the main event kicks off tonight (Saturday, May 13). The annual celebration of Europe’s greatest pop songs will descend on Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena from 8pm.
As we head into the final, the bookies have marked out a clear frontrunner in this year’s contest. Loreen, who is representing Sweden with her song “Tattoo”, is the bookies’ favourite for 2023.
Loreen previously scooped the Eurovision trophy in 201 with her smash hit “Euphoria” - which remains one of the most popular Eurovision tunes of all time. The top 10 frontunner has remained largely unchanged in the week leading up to Eurovision.
But following the second semi-final on Thursday (May 11), Belgium’s Gustaph has flown up the ranks with his catchy dance song Because Of You. Sadly, those who are hoping that UK’s entry Mae Muller will replicate Sam Ryder’s success in 2022 may come away disappointed.
The good news is that, according to Ladbrokes, the 25-year-old is still within the top 10 favourites.

How is Mae Muller predicted to do in the Eurovision Song Contest 2023?
While it’s looking unlikely that Mae Muller will replicate Sam Ryder’s success from 2022, according to Ladbrokes the 25-year-old is still within the top 10 favourites.
Ladbrokes’ Jessica O’Reilly said: “Mae Muller should look away now. Her odds of finishing top of the Eurovision pile have taken a massive hit with just over 24 hours to go until the show gets underway.”
UK to finish last – 7/1
UK to get nil points – 33/1
