Lucie And Joe Runaway Love Island Favourites

Couple To Win Love Island

Outright Betting

Lucie Donlan proved a hit with both fellow islanders and punters after the new series of Love Island kicked off with a twist on Monday evening.

Two new lads made late entrances to leave their counterparts feeling the heat, but it was surfing enthusiast Lucie who had been making waves as both Anton and Joe vied for her affection.

It was the latter who won the day in the end and the couple are the runaway favourites to share the £50,000 prize at the end of the series.

We made them 3/1 shots after the first episode with Anton and Amy next in the betting at 20/1.

Favourite of the girls prior to the airing of the first episode Amber Gill is out to 7/2 from 2/1 to be the top female after she hooked up with aircraft engineer Callum MacLeod, and the couple are 25/1 to be the last pair standing.

Joe Garratt has been backed into 15/8 favourite from 11/2 to be crowned top male but the newbies are hot on his heels, with 3/1 Tommy Fury and 6/1 Curtis Pritchard next in the betting as they prepare to get the real games under way and shake things up in the villa and the betting.
