Bobby Beale Fav For Sibling Slaughter
Who Killed Lucy Beale?
It’s only a matter of days until the long awaited reveal of who killed Lucy Beale in Eastenders and there is a new favourite in the betting.
Lucy Beale’s youngest brother Bobby has been backed off the boards in the last 24 hours and is now the 3/1 favourite to have killed his sister, having been 11/2. Who Killed Lucy has turned into a real phenomenon and has gripped punters from day one.
The interest has been constant over the course of the investigation and as D-Day approaches, the bets have been coming in quick and fast for little Bobby to have murdered his sister.
As Jane and Ian get ready to tie the knot, Jane could be holding onto a sinister secret as she is the 4/1 second favourite to have done the evil deed. Mick Carter is next in the betting at 7/1, with Ben Mitchell, who has killed before, on offer at 15/2 alongside previous favourite Abi Branning.
Arthur ‘Fatboy’ Chubb has been a popular pick with punters recently and is now a massive four figure loser for us after being backed in from 16/1 to 8/1. Another big loser is Sharon Mitchell, however, her popularity has subsided as we draw closer to the reveal and she has drifted out to 12/1 from 7/1.
Two other suspects that could see us fork out are Phil Mitchell and Lee Carter. Phil and Lee were early favourites with Eastenders fans but at 20/1 and 25/1 respectively, we’re quietly confident the pair are innocent.
The interest in this market has been incredible and very interesting, with new favourites nearly every week. BoyleSports are as nervous as the viewers waiting on the reveal, but for other reasons as there are a couple of large liabilities in the betting and should one of these be named as the killer, Lucy won’t be the only one who has been done away with.
