Eurovision 2019 conclusions
« on: May 19, 2019, 06:53:34 PM »

We all know that the Eurovision song contest is one of the greatest arbing events.
To be realistic, we have to stress that limits and reduced volumes in the exchanges are contributing greatly to a harder work compared to what this competition was some years ago.

I would like to bring to your attention a couple of facts that would help a sharp player make some extra cash from this contest:
1. It is of great importance to know how the voting procedure will be presented to the viewers. If you know in advance how this procedure unfolds, you have a serious advantage against the competition. If you have a couple-3 of scenarios prepared in advance, you might be able to capitalize them during the course of the competition.
2. This year, the voting procedure was presented in 2 stages. The 1st stage was presenting the voting of the commissioners, or whatever these people are called. At this stage, capitalization was hard work to do. However, in the 2nd stage, there was one cornerstone prerequisite that a sharp player should take into account. That was the fact that the total points given were known in advance. So, if you add the points as they were presented, you could easily know how many points were left to be distributed. In the end, the number of points left was getting lower and lower. At the end of the competition, one country needed 254 or more points to win the competition. But the clever gambler already knew how many points were left. The TV coverage gave more than a minute before announcing the points left. During this minute, the sharp player would be able to place an uncovered bet for the winner. I have to say that some bookmakers locked the event at this stage, but others were still accepting bets, even though it seems that some people knew what was going on.
3. A smart bettor would take into account that some countries are not favored by the viewers and will always have an additional burden in this competition. That would make the last 3 or 4 competitors known far before the commentators announce their results.
