Odds slashed on United Kingdom WINNING Eurovision 2020 following song release

Odds have been cut from 35/1 into 12/1 with some bookmakers

The United Kingdom’s odds have been cut on winning Eurovision 2020, following the song and artist announcement this morning.

Since James Newman’s ‘My Last Breath’ was unveiled on BBC Radio One, the UK’s odds have been cut from 35/1, into as short as 12/1 to win the competition for this first time in two decades.

The best price of 20/1 is still available with one bookmaker.

In the last 24 hours, a whopping 23% of all bets on the eventual winner have backed the UK, which is the second-most in the market.

The only country that punters have been favouring over the UK is the favourite Lithuania, who have attracted 25% of all bets.

Lithuania are the market leaders at 5/1, followed by Romania (8/1), Italy (12/1) and Russia (12/1).

Sweden are also 12/1, as are Bulgaria (12/1), Malta (18/1), Norway (18/1) and Norway (18/1).

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “With those in the UK more familiar with ‘nul points’ than winning the thing, it finally looks like we can finally get excited for Eurovision again.

“While the UK's Eurovision song may not have the razzmatazz of some of the other countries' selections, My Last Breath absolutely holds its own.

"It's driving beat gives the song a sense of adventure and purpose, singling it out as a potential dark horse."
