The clock is now ticking down until the judges have to decide who is going to be the BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and much like every single year of that annual award, there are plenty of sports personalities who have earned the right to win the trophy.
However, with betting sites such as William Hill always famed for offering their customers some higher than average odds on the winner of that award, then please do read on for when you find out just how high some of the odds on offer are, you may fancy placing a bet yourself!
It is not often that a cyclist is pencilled in as the favourite to win this award from the BBC however that is certainly the case this year and it is the master of the world of cycling that being Geraint Thomas who is 11/8 to win that award this year
However, having aid that there are always plenty of footballers who are listed somewhere on the betting markets for this annual award and it probably will not surprise you to learn that it is Harry Kane that is the current second favourite to win this year at some impressive odds of 5/2!
Alastair Cook worth a Punt at 10/1
How can Alastair Cook not be in with a very fair and reasonable chance of winning this ward this year, and to be honest there is of course a very good chance he will do and the odds being offered on him right now by William Hill are huge at 10/1!
For those of you how are looking for a fair chance of winning hen betting on this awards ceremony but also want to sniff out some of the people with much higher valued odds attached to them that look at backing sports personalities such as Dina Asher-Smith7/1, Lewis Hamilton 16/1 or go for gold and bet on Anthony Joshua who could surprise everybody and win at huge odds of 20/1!
Other Sports Men and Women to Consider
It could of course be a man or woman that wins the sports personality award of the year from the BBC and as such I would never forget about some of the people that are lower down the betting markets as any of them could just spring a surprise.
With that in mind if you do want to pin your hopes on a big win then it could be worth siding with people such as Lizzy Yarnold at 33/1 or even place a speculative punt on the likes of Jonathan Rea who is are high at 40/1.
In fact I certainly wouldn’t put off anybody backing Eddie Hall who does look a tad overpriced at his current win odds of 50/1 and if you do think as some people do that it should be Joe Root who should in this award this year then he worth backing too at some much higher valued odds of 66/1 so do think about placing bet on him to win!
