Russia's price is killing this as a close contest if this prove an accurate guide.

The lack of Scandi countries is useful boost for Russia as well. 

If Sweden gets 12 from Norway etc. there's no one of the other Scandis to stop them getting 10s.  We know they'll hoover up in the east.

Hate odds on in 42 runner fields but I learnt with Loreen in 2012, sometimes you just have to accept that the favourite is favourite for a reason.

Iveta was off the charts with her performance on Tuesday.  I only really watched the first half and didn't see the 'ghost' effects first tiem around

It didn't take a genius to work out Sweden had won last year as I was straight on here predicting a Man-slide.  But I'll happily take you labelling me a genius all the same!  LaughWink

If lots of russia friendly countries are towards the voting order will no doubt point to russia winning. last year most russia friendly countries were towards the beginning of the running order and russia became in the lead after 3 or 4 sets of votes and remained in the lead to about 2 thirds of the voting.

You're probably right.  Ironically, until last week I rated Russia higher than Armenia but after being thoroughly underwhelmed by Sergey's show and performance on Tuesday I'm at the point where I'll take just about anyone other than Russia.  I'm mid green on Russia but decent green on a whole host of others that I'd prefer to win even I wasn't a gambling man.

the running order does not mention breaks but i think you get 2 breaks during the songs of the final like you do in the semis.

Putting Latvia and Malta either side of Ukraine doesn't help Ukraine and Croatia and Spain either side of Russia helps Russia IMO.
