Eurovision betting special

It’s just crap Europop watched by losers you cry. Well, seemingly it’s fairly serious. Nine million quid was staked on Eurovision through Betfair last year making it a bigger betting market than the FA Cup Final and the Rugby World Cup Final and only just shy of this year’s Grand National. So here's who’s in the running this year (all odds courtesy of Betfair):

Norway

Norway are the overwhelming favourites. Their song is deemed by experts to transcend the necessary Eurovision genres and singer Alexander is already proving to be the object of affection for fans (prepubescent girls and hysterical homosexual men) across Europe. Current price around 5/2.

UK

Our best hope for years. Not only has Andrew Lloyd Webber written the song, but Jade Ewen has toured 13 European countries promoting the entry. Plus we’re sandwiched between two stereotypical upbeat Eurovision songs, making our ballad stand out. Available at the time of writing at 19’s.

Malta

Rotund singer Chiara has appeared twice before. She came third in her first appearance. Then runner up in her second. And consequently seems massively overpriced at 50’s for her third crack at the title.
