Russia wins in a canter, therefore 11/8-6/4, remains more than acceptable.

Ireland will not qualify for the final, an appropriate result for sending an insider who cannot sing solo.
in the middle of april, a bet I placed with the so called biggest bookmaking firm in Ireland which resulted in them moving the price of non qualification from 5/4 to 1/2(they took 10% of what I requested, before slashing the price).

Now 1/4 with said firm, Bxyles are still going 2/5 on non qualification, which is simply a handy 40% return on anything they take from you at those odds.

the above two certs apart, if you want an interest bet at a bigger price, Iceland has one of the more memorable presentations with a lady who can sing...Iceland is circa 3/1 to finish in the top ten if it reaches the final, and there is juice in this speculate wager.

These are treated as novelty bets nowadays.

Years back I knew a racegoer who flew out to the host city every year,listened to the rehearsals and punted accordingly.
He seemed incredibly successful,it was a time of tax on bets so lots of illegals,especially on the Stock Exchange,he managed to get huge bets on.

The favourite seems to win it every year,similar to Rose of Tralee in that fashion.

A recommendation from Keen Leader coupled with all the stats in your favour,Russia have to be backed.

The stage performance for the russian song is very clever ; but the song is not a 2.22 fav, i backed Poland at 9/2 to make the top 10 myself. i have to agree with K.L on the irish song, it wont be our 8th winner thats for sure.
Report wildmanfromborneo May 10, 2016 4:34 PM BST
I suppose backing a song you haven't heard seems madness but when you consider who put it up and the stats it doesn't matter,you are going to collect.

Did the favourites always win the Eurovision ?

I know Johnny Logan's first winner was a 12/1 shot.
I presume Mary Hopkin was favourite when Dana won.
Cliff Richard was surely favourite in his years.

I think this favourite thing is a new phenomenon.

Despite what WMFB says, have these Eurovision threads not been big loss makers for the past couple of years?

Ozy can confirm but I thought Roger De Bris was the man that had nailed the last few.

Russia were 5/1 a while back so it is very much the bottom price now anyway.

UK to beat Ireland looked a gift at 4/9 earlier in the week with PP although getting it was a different matter.
Report Temlett May 11, 2016 10:08 AM BST
As frank says, the favs seem to be doing very well now.

It is not quite the Rose of Tralee farce, but the heavily backed ones continually deliver.

I think Serbia, France, Sweden, Germany were just some that were very well punted close to the event and delivered.

Keen Leaders Iceland failed to quilify last night [ it looked like a copy of Swedens winner a few years ago]  , Temlett Austrias bearded lady took the bookies for a few quid 2years ago but they are wise to any so called outsiders . I had a chat with one of Boyles managers yesterday and he told me theres very little interest so far in Eurovision 2016.

in fairness to KL, his recommendation for Iceland was conditional on reaching the final.  KL's record on this over the years is one of the best reasons for coming on here - despite a blip last year.

After a stellar few years, Keen Leader has made a horlicks of this event for the last couple of years.

Roger de EasyGob did indeed produce a great preview last year and came up with the winner.

Not up to speed with this years event.  Have just listened to Russia's entry.  Good looking guy, great production, not sold on the song yet.  Winners in recent years have almost all been really good deserving songs.  No idea what the competition sounds like etc.
Report callitasucit May 13, 2016 12:08 AM BST
Strange that Roger hasn't piped up after last years success.

Strange too that he disappeared the same time as Easygold.

Will we see their likes no More?

Watching this is bad enough, betting on it you should be strung up. Similar sentiments about long odds on certainties expressed over last couple of years and were beaten but op never revisited.

My reserach is as thin as just listening to both Australia nad Russia's song.  Russia's production is stunning but I prefer the Australian song. Sung by what Borneo would term an 'Oriental', not sure how that will go down in his beloved Eastern Block .
