Glasgow are the 7/4 favourites to host this year's Eurovision

The shortlist to host the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest will be announced on Friday live on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show.

Due to Ukraine not being able to host Eurovision next year, the event was awarded to the UK to host due to their runners up spot at this year's show.

Bookmakers make Glasgow the 7/4 favourites to host this year's Eurovision after previously being dethroned in their favouritism by Birmingham.

Eurovision Host City Odds Probability
Glasgow 7/4 36.4%
Manchester
5/1 16.7%
Birmingham
5/1 16.7%
Belfast 8/1 11.1%
London 8/1 11.1%

BetVictor make Manchester and Birmingham both second favourites in a market that has constantly changed in the last month.

According to their betting odds, Glasgow have a 36.4% chance of hosting the event next year.

Glasgow go back into favourites to host Eurovision at 7/4, with Birmingham drifting back out to 5/1 to host the contest next year.

Birmingham drift out to 5/1 after being favourites

Birmingham have drifted out to 5/1 in the betting market to host Eurovision 2023. 

The 'second city' did go into 6/4 favourites to host Eurovision next year but that has changed again in the last week.

As always with specials markets, the UK bookmakers odds differ on the market with BetVictor's odds different from what Betfair were offering.

It's good to shop around when it comes to specials betting as there may be better value across different bookies.

Odds also available for host of Eurovision with Graham Norton 1/4 favourite

Graham Norton remains the favourite to be the host of next year's Eurovision Song Contest.

Norton has been the BBC's commentator for the event for the last 13 years after taking over from Sir Terry Wogan in 2009.

Rylan Clark-Neal is second favourite in the market at 1/2 and has regularly been involved in the BBC's coverage of Eurovision.

Eurovision Grand Final Host or Co Host Odds Probability
Graham Norton 1/4 80.0%
Rylan Clark-Neal 1/2 66.7%
Ant and Dec 4/1 20.0%
Scott Mills 5/1 16.7%
Emma Willis 10/1 9.1%


Scott Mills also features in the betting market at 5/1 and he's been a predominant figure in the BBC's coverage of Eurovision in the last decade.

Graham Norton is still the heavy favourite to be a host or co-host at next year's Eurovision Song Contest with his 13 year spell as Commentator for the BBC taken into consideration in the betting odds!
