    Every year i give a cd of all entries to my daughter (21) and son (15),this year they watched them all on Youtube.Last year they both picked Sweden.I backed it on that EW.The year before they both went for Satelite.This year my daughter went for Sweden again (theres my idea it is dated blown away) and Germany,her friends all like Germany,my son picked Denmark.Pure none scientific of course.
    Like you said iv looked at the support more,and i think like you indicated Germany edge that.Its an interesting match,but like you said wether there is any value is debatable,but i think maybe there is a bit in Germany.

    I've now upped my Romania top-10 stake to a full 10pts. I'll be keenly waiting for more bookies publishing their markets.

    I looked at that and thought, what a gift! Then I consulted my notes and was a little put off my Lithuania's semi final slot and the fact Estonia has to qualify from what is a very hard semi. I going to wait until rehearsals before I take a 'below evens' bet.

    They looked great in Amsterdam,the standout(apart from she didnt sing live for some reason),im low on the top 10 on them,ive been laying off a bit of the win bet as i was very heavy at 41sew ,but need more top 10.Im going to run some of the 41/1ew.
    I like the top Baltic bet,a two horse race for sure,and Estonia is far more jury friendly,i think Estonia will qualify Lithuania to really struggle and if they both do Estonia should trounce it in the final.il up it to a 10pts after iv seen the rehearsals probably.

    Im warming to Germany but the only interest so far is a match bet with Spain.She sounded great in Amsterdam,but i think Germany edge it.Il be taking a good look at the rehearsal as its available in some interesting match bets.

    Im actually warming to spain a lot.
    Theses bets were placed a while ago now, quite a close call on these 2
    Spains starting to stand out as the better song while germany has the more contempary ballad and slightly better draw.
    As of now id be tempted to choose spain

    Yes Spain sometimes seems fantastic,but i think it is weak in parts.I think Germany might edge the televote.Its a very close call and 2nd rehearsal could be the key.

    Took a small'ish stab:
    Latvia to qualify: 4.0 @ NordicBet

    I got stuck browsing the odds again. Had to bet something, otherwise my time would have been a waste, right? :p I dont know about that to be honest. I have warmed up to it lately and she does seem to have decent pipes so I figure she has a fighting chance from SF1. In SF2 she would get murdered.

    Why is is that StanJames and BetVictor give different returns with same E/W rules (E/W 1/4 1,2,3,4)

    Wanted to take Romania 34 with E/W. I'll illustrate the problem: say I bet 50, it says return 1700 in both places, as it should. Then I check the E/W box and StanJames says: Return 2162,5€, and BetVictor says 2080€. So it seems like with StanJames the top4 odds is 9,25, but with BetVictor it's 7,6. Why is this, anyone, any ideas? It's a pretty significant difference with the top4 odds. Of course StanJames wont let me take as much as I want, and BetVictor is screwing me with the odds. Darn.

    BetVictor is 1/4 for outright win, 1/5 for semifinals. I'm chatting with live help right now, he seems to be baffled as well :p And I think William Hill has EW 1/3 1,2,3 only. no top4 there :/

    yeah they dropped italy quite low. I was able to snatch Italy @ 9.0 without Sweden. BetVictor really messed up there! :) Really happy with that bet

    Even though I kinda like the song this feels like good value right now:

    France top10: NO - 1.3 @ Bwin

    Betfair has France top10 at 6.6 right now, and it feels like many of betfair's top10 odds are rather low right now. They are also performing 9th in the finals which isnt the greatest of spots. Liking this a lot.

    Yes thats a great bet.We all on here got Italy at great prices,i think Gavster got some 28s.Betfair hasnt got much liquidity in the top ten market at the minute,you sometimes get some nice prices when casual punters join in.Thats probably a shoe in on France.
    My Sweden lay is starting to drift so i might trade that out for some more firepower.We should see the bookies putting up some more markets soon.I am considering a match bet on the Netherlands v Belgium,only considering at the minute.
    Im waiting to see if Turkey do the wandering around the stage drunk routine in the rehearsals,if they do im going heavy against them in a couple of match bets and upping the Romania match bet.
