Germany’s win is a fantastic result for the contest, in my opinion – well done Lena. I didn’t rate her chances beforehand, but was happy for her and to see the advice I gave to family, friends and Saturday’s edition of The Times – to back Turkey each-way – pay off.
In the final, I took my own advice from Top Tip #8 and concentrated on the Top 10 market. I had covered this in my first preview on Saturday. It proved an absolute goldmine with every bet a successful one, for what was a third five-figure profit of the week.
The publication of the results from the semi-finals also proved a success for sofabet. We tipped the winners of both of them, Belgium at 4.9 in the first semi, and Turkey at 14-1 in the second semi. I had managed to get 40-1 on the latter a few months ago.
In the same piece, I mentioned Georgia as a potential each-way alternative in the second semi-final at 50-1. ‘Shine’ managed to grab third place. At the other end of the scale, I advised backing Slovakia at 3-1 not to qualify from the first semi-final, and we found out on Saturday that it came second last.
It’s been a pleasure sharing with you my thoughts on this year’s contests, and it’s not ending there. This Monday we move straight on to Britain’s Got Talent, before we go big on X-Factor in the autumn.
I am going full-time with the site and the gambling, and am relieved I do so with a highly profitable Eurovision behind me. Next year, I hope to be reporting on the contest from Berlin. Stay tuned to sofabet.
