Eurovision: Consider Serbia, Bulgaria and Latvia after semi-finals

Eurovision: Consider Serbia, Bulgaria and Latvia after semi-finals Only hours left until the start of the second semi-final of the song contest Eurovision 2008 and it's time to look ahead to the best bets. We have seen the first 10 countries chosen for the final round and tonight another ten will join them after the second semi-final results are announced. With all the buzz about "bloc countries" we've decided to give our take on which the best bets may be for the winner of Eurovision this year. And our top three picks are Serbia, Bulgaria and Latvia. These are not the favorite countries to win Eurovision 2008 but they are the best bets for the money. The British online bookmaker Bet 365, which we often use for European odds, has listed today Serbia with odds 11/2, when just a few days ago Serbia was a favorite along with the Russians. Now Russia is the top dog with odds 11/4, followed by Ukraine at 5/1 and the Serbia, who was last year' winner. The we'd go with Bulgaria, who finished fifth last year, now listed with odds to win at 33/1 and finally Latvia, which offers the best payout out of our three-country selections with odds 60/1 to win Eurovision 2008 at the British odds maker. Bulgaria and Latvia are competing today in the second semi-final of Eurovision, but the chances of these two countries not making it to the final are pretty slim. Keep in mind that once the second semi-final is over these odds will change and this may be your last chance to lock on double-digit odds.
