The annual Eurovision Song Contest will start on 9 May in Kyiv, Ukraine. 43 countries compete this year. Russia is represented by Julia Samoylova with the song 'Flame Is Burning’ written by Leonid Agutin.
In advance of the contest bookies announce their favorites. Irish bookmaker Paddy Power predicts a triumph of Italian singer Francesco Gabbiani. They give the odds of 2.75 on his win.
According to the bookies’ expectations, Belgian performer Blanche (5.5 from Liga Stavok) and Swedish pop-star Robin Bengtsson (7.0 from 1xStavka) will scramble for the second place.
Initially the representative of Russia Julia Samoylova was ranked as the top-5 by her native bookmakers Liva Stavok and 1xStavka, but the things moved to the pessimistic estimation. Now one can bet on Julia’s win with the odds of 13.0 and 16.0 accordingly. British giant William Hill doesn't rank Julia as a favorite as well, just the 11th place in the overall table of contestants.
Bookies don’t believe Ukraine can double its last year success. Ukrainian band O.Torvald got medium 66 to 1.
Website betonmobile.ru reminds that at the previous contest Sergey Lazarev from Russia was rated as an unconditional favorite with the odds of 2.75, but ended up third after the voting.
