With just five hours to go until the Eurovision 2012 final, Sweden’s Loreen sees her odds of winning widening, while Russia’s Buranovskiye Babushki and Serbia’s Zeljko Joksimovic are narrowing in.

Loreen remains the favorite with odds as low as 1. Even so, choking on snow during the Jury Final last night has not helped her chances, and her slot in the odds table is a sea of purple as betmakers contemplate that she may not win after all. Russia’s Buranovskiye Babushki, who have won Baku’s hearts with their fake oven and bread baking skills, remain in second position with odds as low as 4.5. That’s still well behind Loreen, but their slot on the odds table is awash in blue, suggesting betmakers may soon slash their odds even further. Serbia’s Zeljko Joksimovic, who has the privilege of performing towards the end of tonight’s show, sits in third with odds as low as 6. Spain’s Pastora Soler, who won our poll “Choose Your Favorite Big Five Contestant,” is in seventh position with the bookies. But her odds are narrowing at 14 of Britain’s 18 leading betting agencies. She currently has more momentum than any other contestant.

Below you can see the current standings. Team Wiwi has averaged the odds across Britain’s 18 leading betting agencies, and listed the odds from Bet365 and Boylesports below.
