Bookies Get The ‘Message’ After Gamble On Ovie To Win Love Island

Tommy and Molly-Mae looked to have this year’s Love Island prize wrapped up but there’s a couple of dark horses making their way up the betting after Thursday night’s recoupling.

Ovie Soko has been one of the most popular islanders since entering the villa during the Casa Amor twist and viewers got their wish on Thursday as the prospects of a lengthy stay in the villa were boosted by a match-up with Amber, who started the series as the favourite to be top female.

The basketball player has now set punters’ hearts racing too as his odds were slashed in half from 18/1 to 9/1 to be the top male behind runaway favourite Tommy Fury.

His relationship with Amber seems to be platonic for now but with the prospect of things heating up between the pair, they are into 10/1 from a high of 80/1 to be the winning couple when the cameras shut down.

They still have it all to do as Tommy and Molly-Mae remain hot 1/8 favourites to walk away the winners.
