Luke and Siannise are the overwhelming odds-on favourites to win Love Island this weekend

Ahead of Sunday's final it's Luke and Siannise who are fancied to walk away with the £50k prize fund at just 4/11.

Finley and Paige (11/4) sit in second spot as the most likely couple to cause an upset, or there's 7/1 on offer that Luke and Demi win.

Ched and Jess (50/1) and Mike and Priscilla (66/1) are the rank outsiders.

Meanwhile, it’s highly likely that this is the first and last series of winter Love Island, according to the bookmakers.

Following reports ITV have cut the length of the inaugural winter version of the hit show by a fortnight, Ladbrokes now make it just 1/5 that it is axed altogether after one series.

"Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing, and that's certainly what has happened with winter Love Island," said Ladbrokes spokesperson Jessica O'Reilly.

"As far as the odds are concerned this will be the first and last series to take place during January and February."

What Happened in the last Love Island?

Love Island 2019 crowned two winners last summer and at least one of them, from a form perspective, was a complete outsider until a tsunami of support for him and his partner in the 48 hours leading up to the final saw the pair go off odds-on by the time of the last episode.

Indeed Greg O’Shea only arrived in the Love Island on day 44 of proceedings, just two weeks from the show’s conclusion.

His winning partner, Amber Gill, was a Day 1 arrival which is where most previous winners have entered the fray.

When the pair first coupled-up they were available at 50/1. Forty-eight hours prior to the final they were 5/1, by the morning of the live finale they had usurped long-standing favourites Tommy and Molly and were odds-on before lunch time.

According to broadcasters ITV, the deciding show was the most watched episode of the long-running series to date and the most watched Love Island final ever.

Unsurprisingly, those figures encouraged ITV to launch the brand new winter series, for better or for worse.

What Next For Class Of 2019?

The leading betting firms, such as Paddy Power, priced up a market on ‘what will they do next’, which made for some entertaining reading, not to mention betting opportunities.

‘Any Islander to appear on Dancing on Ice 2020’ proved popular at 2/1 and backers were rewarded as Maura Higgins was confirmed as a contestant in December.

Elsewhere, punters who thought Love Island's winning couple were truly loved-up and backed 33/1 about them marrying in 2019 were sadly out of pocket, with Amber and Greg confirming their split last month.

At an even bigger price is Love Island runner-up, boxer Tommy Fury, to win a WBA, WBC, WBO or IBF belt before 1st Jan 2021. That’s a 50/1 poke.

Remaining on the sporting theme, Love Island winner Greg O’Shea is 33/1 to be part of Ireland’s Rugby Sevens team and the same price to win a medal of any colour for his nation at the 2020 Olympics.

Compatriot Maura Higgins has also had a number of markets framed around her. Presenting her own dating show is still not out of the question at 12/1, as is the evens (1/1) about her releasing her own clothing line.
