Eurovision semi-final has Ukraine and Sweden sure bet to go to finals Tomorrow is the second semi-final of the song contest Eurovision 2008 and a few countries are sure bet to qualify for the final. Keep in mind that 10 additional countries will join the finalists from the first semi-finals, but the countries already competed in the first will not be allowed to vote in the second semi-final of Eurovision. According to the British online bookmaker Bet 365 Ukraine is the favourite to move forward to the finals, listed with odds to do so at 1/80. Following Ukraine comes Sweden with odds to go to the Eurovision final at 1/14. Turkey and Bulgaria come third, each sharing odds of 1/8 to qualify for the final. Croatia and Iceland are next with odds 1/2. If these odds are two small for you, additional betting options are available. For example, the bookie has posted odds on which of the second semi-final Eurovision contenders could win the Eurovision 2008 outright. Ukraine pays 6/4, Sweden 16//5, Turkey sits on 10/1 and Bulgaria is at 11/1.

 The big picture still has the Russians favorite to win the Eurovision 2008 song contest, from all the countries left in the competition. Russia, represented by Dima Bilan, had no problem moving forward yesterday to the finals and is now listed with the favourite odds to win Eurovision 2008 at 11/4. Serbia comes second in odds to win at 5/1, but Ukraine was slightly downgraded to 11/2 odds, from the previous 5/1. Greece, represented by Kalomira was also cut a bit to 7/1, from the previous 13/2.
