Engelbert Humperdinck Eurovision Odds Slashed After Song Premieres
Nevertheless, the nation hopes that dear old Engelbert will find the country fortune at this year's event in Baku, Azerbaijan and - following the crooner's revelation of his song 'Love Will Set You Free' - bookmakers William Hill have cut the odds of him winning from 16/1 to 14/1. They cite a popular reaction to the track on Twitter as to why they've cut the prices, though they still expect perennially successful Ireland to beat the UK, even though they have the unfathomably successful pop twins Jedward fighting for their cause. They're tipped at 1/2 to finish higher than Britain, with odds of 6/4 to go the other way.In further betting, it's also expected that Ireland and the UK will both manage to find places inside the top 10 with the former at 4/5 and the latter at 4/7. A witty spokesperson quipped "Eurovision fans have certainly not got the Hump with the UK entry and we expect that it will do relatively well in Baku this year."
