The wait for the answer to the question that everyone in Britain, and even some parts of Australia, are obsessing over – who killed Lucy Beale – is almost over, but there is still enough time to make money from a successful spot of Sherlock-ing.
If you’ve left it until the last minute to place your bet then you’ve come to the right place because bwin are best price on each of the top 20 in the market, from surprise frontrunner Bobby Beale at 5/1 all the way down to the likes of Arthur “Fatboy” Chubb at 33/1.
Walford’s sharpest minds haven’t been able to settle on a culprit since the blonde’s demise ten months ago, though they didn’t have access to a graphic as exhaustive as this, covering every EastEnders death ever:
No Beale has ever been implicated in a murder, but the odds suggest that statistic will be sabotaged by this evening’s revelations.
Bobby is 5/1, Cindy Jr is 15/2, Jane is 8/1, Ian is 11/1 and Peter is 20/1, while an underwhelming Lucy suicide/natural-causes revelation is 50/1. As it stands, you won’t find better odds on any of them anywhere.
