Punters are piling their money on Ukraine and Latvia ahead of Saturday’s Eurovision Song Contest final.

Ukraine’s cross-dressing entry Verka Serduchka is a very warm favourite at 5/2 with William Hill, while there’s also been a lot of support for semi-final qualifiers Latvia, who’ve moved been backed from 14/1 to 6/1.

Another big mover is Georgia, whose odds have been slashed from 100/1 to 40/1. There had been quite a lot of support for Andorra’s boyband Anonymous, but they failed to make it to the final after a poor semi-final performance.

Britons aren’t feeling especially patriotic about Scooch, who have stayed constant at 25/1.

William Hill spokesperson Jennie Priest said: “I think there’s some really good songs in there this year – it seems strange to say that about Eurovision – and they should rightfully beat the UK’s entry.”

She added that although Scooch were trying to do something different, she thought Europeans would react against the act’s ‘cheese’ factor.

William Hill revised the odds on Friday morning after the semi-final, with qualifiers Serbia and Belarus staying constant at 5/1 second favourites, but if the punters have got it right, Ukraine, originally 33/1, will win.
