ITV’s Love Island has been a massive hit in the field of reality TV, ever since it returned to our screen in 2015. This show sees singles from the UK head to the famous villa in Mallorca looking to find love, and potentially win a prize pot of £50,000.

We’ve seen some stars launch their career on Love Island, with the likes of Tommy Fury, Molly-Mae Hague and Dani Dyer all going on to superstardom in the world of celebrity after appearing on the show. Below we've put together a short guide on how to bet on Love Island.

Love Island is often tough to predict, with re-couplings shaking up seemingly solid couples. Now, the way the show works is that contestants get paired together early on, and then other people enter the villa looking to find love, and disrupt the couples. 

With six-packs and thongs both on show, often people are swayed to chat with, and couple up with other contestants. Daily challenges can cause drama, with kissing and cheating rife throughout the show. There’s gossip, bitchiness and sometimes, even genuine relationships can come out of the show. 

Let’s not even mention what goes on in the hideaway! The programme usually spans eight weeks, which gives viewers a lot of time to pick their favourites and understand who has a chance of winning. However, there is also the risk of eliminations. Randomly, the most unpopular contestants are kicked out of the villa, via public votes or sometimes votes by their fellow islanders. Therefore their chance of winning is over, so there is some level of risk in Love Island. 

Love Island 2024 Odds

Top Male and Top Female

There are usually two main markets to bet on during Love Island, and the markets are usually up for the duration of the show. Because of the format of the show, until the very last week, you can usually only bet on individuals to win the show, rather than couples. That is because couples so often change, and a couple at the start often isn’t a couple at the end. 

That means the markets are ‘top male’ and ‘top female’. That means you can bet on an individual to be part of the winning couple in the final. The final is comprised of the top four couples, and then a public vote is held to choose the winner via the ITV app. If you see potential in a person who hasn’t yet been coupled up, you can sometimes get good value on them to win the show in the first couple of weeks. It's as simple as that!
