Free tips Reality TV Betting: Love Island 2019 Betting Odds & Tips
19th July Update – Punters no longer in love with Tommy and Molly-Mae
Love Island continues to attract six million viewers a night but many of them are no longer betting their money on Tommy and Molly-Mae. The couple, as short as 1/9 to win their respective categories a few days ago, can now be backed at 8/15 to win the ‘Top Man’ and ‘Top Woman’.
Their price drift has brought Curtis, Michael and Ovie all into single figures amongst the men and Maura, Amber and latest arrival, India are also trading below 10/1 with the principle Love Island betting firms: bet365, William Hill, Paddy Power and BetVictor.

It’s been noticeable Tommy and Molly-Mae have enjoyed very little air-time in recent days and they have been somewhat boring when they have been spotted. But Maura and Curtis getting together and getting jiggy has put them in the spotlight and the Irish girl, with some excellent one-line quips, is now clear second favourite at 6/1 (with Betfair).
Viewers have been impressed with basketball player Ovie since he arrived in the villa 19 days ago. His relaxed nature and words of wisdom saw him slowly backed down from 25/1 into 10/1. But the arrival of vegan chef India Reynolds and the prospect of romance with her has seen him punted even further. He’s now 7/1 with bet365 while William Hill are as short as 11/2.
Hill’s have embraced Love Island and are offering more betting markets on the show than anyone. With the Leeds based form you can back contestants ‘without the favourite’ in both the male and female markets. Furthermore they have some neat special Love Island bets on eventualities such as the winners sharing the prize-money and the number of people that will watch the live final show.
4th July Update – Love Island 2019 Betting: It’s sick stuff if you’re a punter!
Love Island betting has been in a state of disarray since a dozen new contestants joined the show late last week and the men and women that were already in the Love Island villa were separated from their existing couplings.
Six of the new Islanders have already been culled and after a bunch of changes that a swingers party would be proud of, here’s how the love-sick budding TV stars look:
- Michael Griffiths is now coupled up with newcomer Joanna Chimonides
- Danny Williams is now coupled up with newcomer Jourdan Riane
- Anton Danyluk is now coupled up with newcomer Belle Hassan
- Maura Higgins is now coupled up with newcomer Marvin Brooks
- Lucie Donlan is now coupled up with newcomer George Rains
- Anna Vakili is now coupled up with newcomer Ovie Soko
- Curtis Pritchard has re-coupled with Amy Hart
- Tommy Fury has re-coupled with Molly-Mae Hague
- Jordan Hames is now single
- Amber Gill is also now single
Punters are acutely aware of the importance of being an early arrival at the Villa and also being coupled-up from a very early stage. Now into Day 31 of proceedings it would appear all but two couples have shot themselves in the foot.
Actually, in the case of Michael Griffiths who has traded in Amber for Joanna, he more so cut his leg off with a blunt instrument. Industry top-priced 6/5 a week ago he is now 10/1 at William Hill to take the ‘top-man’ category.
Curtis Pritchard and Amy Hart were even shorter in the betting at one point – evens in their respective categories – and while they have given themselves every chance of success by sticking together, the punters believe this love affair is so fake Ken & Barbie are jealous! Curtis is now 16/1 at Unibet to be ‘top man’ and Amy is 18/1 with 888Sport from ‘top woman’.
So the third man and woman to trade at even-money or lower since the show started are Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague. You are not going to find better than 1/4 about either and to win as a couple 5/18 is the best odds on offer.
In the Breeding?
The only other contestants punters are remotely interested in is newcomer Belle Hassan (7/1, Paddy Power) in the woman category and her new fella, Anton Danyluk who is 5/1 across most bookmakers boards. Belle is fascinating as she is the daughter of actor Tamer Hassan who co-starred alongside Danny Dyer in the 2005 movie, The Business. Dyer’s daughter, Dani, won this show last year.
As he is on his fifth woman in the space of five couplings it is surprising to see Anton so short in the Love Island betting – a reminder the majority of Love Island public votes are believed to come from women – but he’s not been a ‘player’ more so a puppy desperately trying to get love-sick and repeatedly failing badly. His Love Island odds are reflected in the prospect of the sympathy vote and if this latest pairing does turn into love, 5/1 will soon vanish as everyone likes a happy ending.
Love Island 2019: Meet the contestants
Love Island 2019 may not be the most high-brow TV show but it does provide us with a novelty betting medium with which to make a few quid. Scroll on for the latest Love Island 2019 betting odds and tips…
Love Island’s a Classy Act
Let’s be very clear, ITV’s Love Island is to TV reality shows what Harrods is to the Luton branch of Iceland. Yes, unlike MTV’s Ex On The Beach, which sees contestants habitually carry around a bottle of KY jelly and a nasty case of clap, Love Island is positively ‘posh totty’. And, in 2019 with average viewing figures expected to top five million, this show also has 20 times the viewing audience.
Unsurprisingly the greedy bookmakers have jumped on this TV show, acutely aware that the public love a bet and the public will have their favourites. Initially this looks like a foolish event to bet on. Last year there were 38 contestants, in 2017 there were 32. But in 2019 we have only been introduced to 14 ‘Islanders’ so there is every chance we have not yet seen the eventual winners!
Yes, ‘winners’, as there are Love Island 2019 betting odds markets on the ‘Top Man’ and ‘Top Woman’ as well as the ‘Winning Couple’. Furthermore there are also Love Island betting markets on which contestant will leave next.

Ignore the common sense and go for an early arrival
Under normal circumstances we would advise you to head to the Betfair Exchange and simply lay the favourites, safe in the knowledge we probably only know one third of the full field. But in this competition, that’s not the case.
The historical form makes it very clear… the outright winners – which will not be declared until late in July – are most probably residents in this Love Island villa.
- 2018: 49 episodes, 38 contestants took part. Only 11 contestants were in the show from Day 1 amongst them joint winners Dani Dyer and Jack Finchman.
- 2017: 43 episodes, 32 contestants took part. 11 contestants were in the show from Day 1 amongst them were joint winners Amber Davies and Kem Cetinay.
- 2016: 37 episodes, 26 contestant took part. 11 contestants were in the show from Day 1 amongst them were joint winners Cara De La Hoya and Nathan Massey.
- 2015: 29 episodes, 23 contestants took part. Another 11 Day 1 hopefuls of which the female winner and contestants placed joint second and joint third all graduated from.
Curtis Pritchard, a 23-year-old Latin and ballroom dancer from Shropshire is currently top-priced 6/5 to be the top man.
BA air hostess Amy Hart, 26 from West Sussex, is industry top-priced 6/4 (at Paddy Power) to be the winning girl.
Surprise surprise this pair are coupled-up already and if you think they will stay together for the duration and win top-prize you should head right over to Boylesports who will give you the best Love Island betting odds of 7/4. Based on all known form it’s an outstanding price.
