Eurovision – Can Italy Get Beaten?

William Hill make Italy their 4/6 red hot favourites to win the Eurovision Song Contest next weekend and the betting suggests they will be very hard to beat. “Italy are the shortest priced favourite this millennium,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “On paper it looks in the bag.”

Since practice started only Bulgaria (6/1) & Sweden (7/1)  have been popular in the betting and if anyone can beat Italy it will take an extraordinary performance on the night.                            

Things are looking pretty bleak for the UK, with poor old Lucie Jones 33/1 to win and just 14/1 to fail to receive a single point
