5 pts ew Iceland 22/1 @ Paddypower
Would you not prefer the Romania v Cyprus at 1.60,bwin
4 more pts netherlands v Belgium 5/6 @StanJames
upped Norway top 10 average 2.38 @Betfair
Agreed. Cyprus just doesn't have what it takes to compete with the turkish diaspora (and, truth to be told: a more credible song).
What happens if just one of them qualify though? Voided, or a win for the other? Doesn't really affect the viability of the bet imo, but interesting nonetheless.
It matters not a jot, Squall. The pay out is dependant on which country progresses further or achieves highest placing.
5 pts turkey v greece 1.72@ bwin
just can't imagine any other result in any circumstaces. even if greece are on second and turkey have the pimp slot...
should of put this on earlier
5 pts italy top big five 3.25 @bet365 - seems to have it all - good singer with catchy contemporary number and lots of love for italy from the jury's
uk - too early and song not good enough
france - still love her and want to have her babies but song not strong enough and question marks on live performances
spain - good song, really grown on me, but doesn't have immediate impact and i expect it to get lost in the crowd
germany - could upset the apple cart with competent song that will appeal to the masses and telegenic singer bound to sweep up the teen girl vote - might hedge with this one later
I'm pretty full of Turkey vs Cyprus @ amazing 2.00 on Betfair! Problem there is that they're voided if any country doesn't reach the finals...
Apart from some outright market trading, first bet of the year(which I waited a little too long on...)

Greece Finishing Position In The Final: 1-6 odds 11.0(!) @ StanJames
f'd up Stanjames has ridiculous limits though, at least for me.
Which bookies offers the possibility of multies like that?
