Sweden, Austria and The Netherlands are the bookies treasured trio for Saturday night's Eurovision 2014 final to take place in Copenhagen, Denmark. Bookies are undecided as to which country is a clear favourite as song quality is higher this time out than in recent years.

Austria was the final country to be announced as a finalist during last nights dramatic second semi final but that is no indication of just how far Conchita Wurst can go. Conchita, who has become known as the bearded lady, is singing Rise like a Phoenix and was available at a staggering 33/1 before last nights semi. Austria now can be backed at best at 3/1 but expect odds closer to 5/2 as the final draws nearer.

The odds on Sweden winning are also quite low with bet makers finding between 11/2 and 9/2 the best that most bookies will do. Sanna Nielse will perform Undo on Saturday evening fully expecting to be picking up 10s and 12s once the voting commences.

The Netherlands represent a slightly more attractive bet with odds of between 3/1 and 4/1 available. The Dutch entry is surprisingly a country ballad called Calm after the Storm and with a slot 3rd from last, this song could remain engrained in viewers minds to take a large share of the votes.

If you are looking for an outside bet then Aram, representing Armenia, is another in with a great chance of winning. His song begins as a soft piano number but then descends into a catchy dubstep finale that will definitely capture a lot of points. Armenia can be backed at around 7/1 with most bookies but odds as low as 7/2 show how dangerous Armenia can be tomorrow night.

If you still haven't caught a glimpse of Conchita Wurst in action then you have to check out the Austrian entry as well as some of the other possible success stories at this years Eurovision.
