    Thanks Milton for your comments. As it happens the prices I quoted (from the last 11 year) were the odds a week before the actual tournament, not the actual day of the final.

    Having said that I do appreciate that we are still 4 weeks away from this week’s contest and the odds might change between now and then. However Russia are such short priced favourites that I think it highly unlikely they will not be favourites right through to the contest beginning. So I think already now it is pretty safe to place the bet, though to be on the safe side it makes complete sense to wait till closer to the actual contest and place the bet on whoever is the favourite then. That is what I will be doing, probably on the eve of the Semi Finals.

    As we get closer to the contest you will find newspaper and online articles on the contest and most of them will mention who the favourites are, and include links to their songs, so I don’t have any concern about the average Eurovision Song Contest fan finding out who the favourites are and indeed listening to their songs. So there is no needs for anyone to visit oddschecker before checking out one of two songs.

    On your last point, that is perfectly true, but does not negate the strategy, in fact I think it re-enforces it. In other words, despite the markets giving Russia a 64% percent chance of losing (ie only 36% chance of winning), based on historic evidence as favourite they have a much better chance than that to win. Hence the bet makes sense.
