How countries can be favorites when they still didn't even choose songs? Just based on traditionally good results (Greece, Turkey), or what?

Because these countries had strong entries all over the past years. I wonder why the Urkrain is missing.

The odds are always crazy and get more "accurate" once all songs are known. I wouldn't pay too much attention to them. The UK is doing good in the odds because they're sending a big name and Turkey/Azerbaijan/Greece are up there because of their recent good results. But that is all going to change very soon.

I assume it's just begun. We will find out the real results right closer to the dress rehearsals.
Right now they don't have enough bets/info in order to form correct data.

14th.
Dunno about semis.

Yup, but also we must remember that Ireland was still one of the favourites to win the whole contest in 2008, even on the same day as its SemiFinal which it obviously got knocked-out in!

Betting Odds are pointless at the moment, bookies are just decreasing the odds of those countries which "historically" do well & any hype about any entry gets the odds slashed. Until April when the Odds settle we won't be knowing much ;)

These lists don't really tell you anything about the possibility of winning or qualifying because it's based on results from the previous years and doesn't take into account the songs from this year. Then I can understand why Germany is at the top, since they won last year. :)

2. :no: Norway - $9205

3. :ie: Ireland - $3816

I certainly hope so!! :mrgreen: It makes me feel more hopefully to know we are the 5th favourite - much better than being the least favourite last year! :lol:
Seems like we have exchanged places then! ;)
