British online betting agency BetFred, the first to take bets on Eurovision, tips Estonia for a 2015 song contest win, followed by Azerbaijan, Greece, Sweden and Finland. However, Estonia won't choose it's entry until February 21.

According to Eurovision insiders, the song everyone is betting on is "Goodbye to Yesterday" by Stig Rästa, performed by Rästa and Elina Born. The song "has been on the lips of many a Eurovision fan since the release," the editor of ESC Insight Newsletter Ben Robertson wrote a few weeks back.

The song's growing popularity is also evident in Youtube, where it has amassed nearly 350,000 views in three weeks.

Estonia will compete in the first semifinal.
