If one were to bet on who is going to win Eurovision on May 14, bookmakers put their money on Russia's Sergey Lazarev with 'You Are The Only One'.

Despite consistently abysmal performances in contests recently, France's entry "J'ai cherché' by Amir is number two in Oddschecker's ranking, followed by perennial contenders Sweden and Australia, who performed really well in their first Eurovision outing last year. Bulgaria's entry rounds out the top 5 favourites.

Meanwhile Lithuania's entry, 'I've Been Waiting for This Night' by Donatas Montvydas (a.k.a Donny Montell) is ranked in the second half of the field, number 30 among 42 contestants, according to Oddschecker.

William Hill gives Donny a 150/1 chance of winning with Paddy Power giving him a 100/1 chance of winning. A slim chance, but a chance nonetheless.

If Sweden's Frans were to win this year, it would be the first time since the 1990s that a country put together back to back Eurovision victories.
