Eurovision: Australia Already Fancied Over UK
Following the news that for one year only, Australia will be allowed to enter the Eurovision Song contest, William Hill make our friends from Down Under a 10/1 shot to win the competition – over half the price of the UK at 25/1.
“As far as we are concerned, another country allowed to enter Eurovision is just another country to beat us and at this very early stage of proceedings, the Aussies have us beat according to the odds,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
William Hill’s Australian arm has worked itself into such an excited frenzy that they have already started to price up who will win the opportunity to represent the country in Austria this year and make Samantha Jade the 7/1 favourite.
More well-known names (over here at least) include Sia at 8/1, Iggy Azalea at 9/1, Danni Minogue at 14/1 and 5 Seconds of Sumer at 18/1.
Outsiders include AC/DC, Kylie and Olivia Newton-John – all at 100/1 with Jason Donovan 200/1 and Russell Crowe at 500/1.
