The bookmakers offering the best Love Island betting odds

Love Island has steadily grown as a hit for viewers since its relaunch in 2015.

And with any popular reality TV competition, there are odds to bet on with the bookies.

But just how popular is Love Island? The first episode of the last series took started with 2.9m and peaked at 3.4m. That’s compared to 1.9m for 2017’s series opener. And this year’s opening episode is likely to eclipse 2018’s record.

The main betting markets for Love Island are the obvious ones:

  • Top boy
  • Top girl
  • Who will get dumped next
  • Winning couple

But there are some smaller markets including:

  • First girl in the Hideaway
  • A dumped islander to return

Now for some quick reminders about the show so you don’t feel mugged off.

  • Love Island is on ITV2 and starts on Monday 3rd June at 9pm. It’s on everyday except Saturday.
  • The villa the contestants stay in is based in Mallorca
  • There’s a Hideaway for chosen couples to have a night alone together
  • Some words you’ll want to know include mugging off (being deceived by someone else, likely a contestant not being honest about their feelings), on paper (relates to a contestant’s general preference or standard), doing bits (relates to certain romantic acts with no filters)

At the end of every episode is a spin-off show called Aftersun where host Caroline Flack discusses the aired episode and the contestants’ with a panel of 3 celebrities and media figures.

Much like other reality shows of its ilk, to win Love Island, you have to show yourself as a likeable person and, by extension, a likeable couple with someone else. The producers like to throw a spanner in the works every now and again and the shocks get bigger with every series.

A few times a week there are votes (public and amongst the group) and the islander (or couple) with the least votes must leave the island. Any islander without a partner has to leave. There are also recouplings for islanders to change partners if it’s not working out past the “on paper” stage.

In the final week, a public vote is casted and the winning couple get £50,000. But there’s a final twist. They can either choose to split the money or steal it for themselves.

The permutations of the Love Island final

Love Island has become a summer ritual for the British public. With online betting becoming more popular as well, it’s no surprise the two have “married” up and become a couple of their own.
