After the betting bonanza that was the Eurovision Song Contest qualifier round, where turnover with William Hill topped the 100,000 pound mark. As the gambling hots up before the final, several punters across the globe have placed four figure sums on long time favourites Greece and they have shortened again to 7-4.

In a surprising development, Albania are the country attracting the most attention. Having qualified from the semis as a 40-1 long-shot they are now 10-1 joint fourth favourites to win! There has also been a little interest in Germany this morning, with their odds cut from 14-1 to 11-1.

However, after last years shame, this years UK choice, James Fox, is rated more likely to get no points (16-1) with Hold on to our love than he is to win (25-1)! William Hill are also offering 6-5 for one or more countries to get the infamous 'nul points'.

Hills spokeswoman Jennie Prest said “Today in rehearsals we get to hear all the songs in order and punters will be able to find out who stands out the most, so we are braced for the second wave of betting after the madness that was the semi finals!”

Hills also have a range of special bets, including prices on where the UK will finish, and for Katrina and The Waves 227 point record to be broken.
