OK chaps

4 hours to go
If I gave you 2 free bets now, where would your money go? (1 bet at any price and a long shot at over 3-1)

My 2 choices

Portugal win 2-1
Moldova top 5, 9/2

Over to you....

France 6/1 for a top 5 finish

UK to finish 17th-20th 6/1

France (given that politically they've just given the Right-Wing a bloody nose and this appears to be a pro-Europe rather than Frexit stance), are massive for the win at 125/1 with Stan James.

Botev, you are young man then, well if you had been around in the early 60's, this easy listening crap was all that people in the UK had to listen to. We had to go offshore (Pirate Radio), so that decent music could to be aired in the UK. Hopefully tonight the young people of Europe, will rebel like we did in the 60's, and give this song :lose:

As for Italy, I don't mind the song, If it stops Portugal from winning then it gets my :win:

Cheers Alex

Interesting about UK to finish in the bottom places again.. hmm, they are a bit higher in the chances to finish in the top half this time at least, but will be a tough market, and song is predictable, but I wouldn't know where to start with it.

The key to winning perhaps will be something with its celebrating diversity message, either in the videos on stage or the lyrics. Certainly Italy is diverse in lyrics, Portugal is diverse with music choice, Romania is diverse in its musical styles too and that was my hunch from the start because of the yodeling better than the quality of the song. Perhaps the top 5 will be a tight one. Then there is Demy from Greece, she's been a pre-favourite, but could finish anywhere between 1 and 8, given also that Greece again won't be 100% happy tot win it again, but they give it a shot.

Hi All, can't believe how dead this years forum has been..... anyway looks like census is for Italy or Portugal but for me it has to be Bulgaria.

My bets are Bulgaria (22-1), Romania (33-1) and Belgium (80-1) for the win.
Holland top 10 (3-1)
Romania top 10 (2.4)
Greece bottom (40-1)
Hungary outside top 10 (evens)
Forecast Bulgaria/Portugal (poor odds of 7-1!)


Good luck everyone.

Not as touching as in the semi-final but should benefit from a long list of mediocre songs right after it!

Bookies did not like Italy as Bulgaria passed it pretty quickly. From as low as 1,53 to not winning will be a real blowout for those who back favourites, but let's see how it pans out.

bookies not the only ones who didn't like Italy!! sorry I didn't go ew top 4 at 200/1 for Croatia. only have 8/1 for top 10. shouldn't be greedy I suppose. Armenia the most impressive for me so far but the draw screws it for them. Portugal?? I just cant figure it out to be honest. still think
there will be a big odds song in the top 4 but cant figure which one. hope its Hungary but prob not.

Romania, Moldova and Croatia did gain some and Italy now totally out of it at 5/1. Should I get excited for Bulgaria now catching up to Portugal - 2.40 v 2.88

I actually liked the Belgium song, I thought her vulnerability added to the performance, intentional or not.

Damn, Bulgaria is actually favourite now...we have never been that close to winning. Indeed Belgium was great and delivered her best performance when needed. Will Italy come back at 6/1 late in this...it is really intense and close!
