Tonight sees the second semi-final of Eurovision 2022 and by the end of the event we will have the final lineup confirmed for Saturday night's grand finale, of the biggest song contest on the world.
They are trying over the pond with an American Song Contest which has just had its inaugural event, but it can never be as big as Eurovision.
Judging by the odds being offered by bookmakers on the chance of success at Eurovision 2022, the United Kingdon look to be changing ZERO points in 2021, into around 400, with bookie suffering betting on over or under 380 points scored.

Anyway back to Europe and betting sites are offering odds on how many points the winner on Saturday will amass from both the Jury votes and televoting, and offering the chance for us to bet on the winning score.
Not only that but the UK, of course, finished last and scored ZERO points on the night, but 2022 is tipped to be very different by betting sites who have no made the UK 3rd favourite to win.
In doing so, it is expected that the 0 points score in 2021, could turn into close to 400 in 2022, with odds of 1.85 being offered for betting either more or less

What Will The Winning Score be in the Eurovision Final?
|650 or over||6.4||15.63%|
Whilst Eurovision has been around since 1956, the voting system has changed considerably and many times over the years and the current system was only put into place in 2016. Below we can see the scores the past 5 winners have amassed, ranging between 498 for the Netherlands in 2019 against a high of 758 for Portugal in 2017
It remains to be seen if the 2022 winner will be able to amass anything like record holders Portugal from 2017 when they scored over 750 points, but bookies are offering odds of 5/1 or more for scores beyond 600 points, with Ukraine and Itlay favourites to win.

How Many Points will the UK Score?
Infamously, the UK scored zero points and unsurprisingly finished last in 2021 in Eurovision but 2022 is tipped to be the comeback year as bookmakers have slashed the 10/1 down to just 7/1 in recent days
But just how many points can we expect the UK to gain, betting sites offer just 11/10 odds of the UK winning the Jury vote, which often differs from the Televotes, but can be some indication to the fate of the contestants
The odds are just 11/10 that the UK will win the Jury vote at the Eurovision final in Turon on Saturday night. and they are expected to score between 300-400 points on the night, improving upon the ZERO in 2021.
