Big Bad Billy Killed Lucy?
Who Killed Lucy Beale?
With only one episode left until the big reveal of who killed Lucy Beale in Eastenders, the betting has gone into upheaval.
Punters have been flocking to back their favourites and there is a new prime suspect. Billy Mitchell has been heavily backed all morning and punters have left our traders no choice but to cut him right in from 50/1 to new favourite at 11/4 to have murdered Lucy.
The first bet on Billy that got the ball rolling was €100 at 50/1 and it has really snowballed since then, even resulting in him now being our biggest liability.
It has taken the heat off Bobby Beale slightly as he is now the 3/1 second favourite.
Jake Wood, who plays Max Branning, has fuelled speculation about his line ‘You killed Lucy’ to daughter Abi Branning in Tuesday’s episode. It has left everyone confused including us who have priced Abi Branning and Jane Beale both at 9/2. Ben Mitchell is still in the hot seat at 7/1, whilst Lucy’s Brother Peter is 9/1 and her father Ian Beale is 12/1.
