The list of front-runners in terms of the betting is dominated by the Scandinavians at the moment and not many are looking past Denmark winning as they are being offered at 10/11.

The Danes have a song that seems to suit Eurovision as it is catchy and sure to get the audience off their feet on Saturday night. What also helps is that the likes of Sweden and Norway are likely to give them a fair share of the points.

We last saw Denmark win this competition in 2000 and it looks as though it is going to be tough to stop them this year.

Next in the betting are the Norwegians as they are being offered at 15/2, so although they are a fair way behind of Denmark in terms of odds, they are expected to be in contention.

The song has to be good, yes, but also, Norway will hope they can get more points from the countries around them than the Danes do.

Alexander Rybak’s song ‘Fairytale’ gave Norway a win back in 2009 and they will hope that this year’s song goes down well with the Swedish crowd and the European countries watching on.

The host nation, Sweden, are looking to win back-to-back titles at Eurovision for the first time since Ireland in the early 90’s, but if the bookies are right, the Swedes aren’t going to get anywhere near the top of the table on Saturday as they are out at 66/1.

This night in Malmo might prove to be more of a celebration rather than a compeition for the people of Sweden and they should put on an excellent spectacle.

There are of course a number of other contenders for the Eurovision this year and Ukraine, who are at 8/1, will be looking to impress on the night.

Azerbaijan are being offered at 14/1, as are Russia, while Netherlands and Germany are both around 30/1.

There is hardly any hope for the United Kingdom on Saturday and as they haven’t got near the Eurovision title for a number of years now, not much is expected. They are out at 95/1 with some bookmakers.

Bonnie Tyler is the women signing for Britain this year and her song doesn’t seem to be one that could be a winner. Also, the UK struggle to get points from their fellow European countries, no matter how good or bad the song is.

Ireland are never to be written off as they are seven-time winners of Eurovision, but they are out at 66/1 to make it eight titles this weekend.

The Eurovision song contest is always a good watch and Saturday evening is sure to be no exception. Bring on the bright lights, dance anthems and out-of-tune ballads!
