Early market moves on Eurovision betting with William Hill show big money being placed on Greece, Slovenia and France in the opening days. Greece are now second favourites to take a second victory in three years with the bookmaker. They are quickly closing in on favourites, Sweden. Russia's odds have lengthened as they go from 9/1 to 12/1, meeting Cyrus (in from 14/1) and Belarus (who's price has not changed) as third favourites. sweden have seen their odds lengthen slightly from 4/1 to 11/2. Does this mean a straight fight for the title between Sweden and France?

Other notable moves see Slovenian odds on victory halve from 50/1 outsiders to 25/1 dark horses for a first Eurovision Song Contest win. FYR Macedonia have jumped from 66/1 to 50/1, the biggest move is from France, moving from 66/1 to 20/1 for a first win in 30 years. Ukraine have droped out from 12/1 to 16/1

Betting on the Eurovision Song Contest is expected to be tight this year, with no clear leader on the internet polls. Sweden have been installed as precontest favourites, but it appears that few people are backing them at the current prices.
