United Kingdom 12/1 for ‘nil points’ as bookies brace for seven-figure Eurovision gamble

Bookmaker William Hill is bracing itself for a bumper betting bonanza this weekend and it does not come in the form of horse racing or football – it comes in the form of the Eurovision Song Contest.


The final line-up for the annual competition has been confirmed this week and, as things stand, it is Cyprus who is the favourite to win at Even money, with long-time favourite Israel now the second favourite at 7/2.

“Eurovision is one of our most popular non sporting markets and it is not uncommon to see turnover of seven figures staked across all the markets we offer,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

Israel have been the best backed entry at William Hill with 7.8% of all wagers placed on them winning, followed by 100/1 shots, the United Kingdom, with 6.4% of all bets.

However, the odds suggest there is a much more likely chance of the UK entry finishing last at 7/4 than actually winning it, while William Hill has now gone 12/1 that the UK fail to score a single point.

“The UK was never the most popular amongst our Eurovision compatriots,” Joe added. “The likelihood is that Brexit will have been the final nail in our hopes of bagging a decent result this year.”

Latest William Hill odds:

7/4 United Kingdom to finish last
