You have up until the end of October 2018 to place a bet on who you think is going to be crowned this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year, however the particular betting markets that you will find on offer at sites such as William Hill is an ever changing one.
As you will be aware the sporting environment is one on which one person could be a sure fire winner of that annual award one minute, and then suddenly find that person does something untoward and no longer is favourite, and below I will give you an insight into where that betting market currently stands!
There are two supposed red hot favourites to win this year’s award and the first one who many people think does deserve to win it this year is of course the cyclist Geraint Thomas and it is very fair and true to say that he does have the best chance of winning that award this year and his odds of doing so are 11/8!
If you think it will be a football that will win this year’s award from the BBC then the one footballer that surely deserve to win it for his World Cup skills and talents this year is Harry Kane and as far as the odd you can secure at William Hill right now they are 5/2.
Much Bigger Odds on all other Contenders
It is Dina Asher-Smith who might bet the value bet, for that sports personality is all chalked up and available at some very tempting odds of 7/1 and is therefore the current third favourite to win that award this very year!
The other contenders and three of them that I do know many punters are going to be prepared to back and place their hard earned money on include Alastair Cook whose odds are appealing at 10/1 and both Lewis Hamilton at 16/1 and also in with a chance of winning is of course Anthony Joshua at 20/1 too.
Outsiders to Win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year
You can of course pick out any of the possible contenders to win this award this year and if you do pick out any of the ones not so far named you are certainly going to be getting plenty of value, and one to consider backing if you want to secure some big odds is Lizzy Yarnold who is on offer at huge odds of 33/1!
However, there are plenty of other sports personalities who could win this year and on that may just do is Jonathan Rea at the very high odds of 40/1!
As for which others you should be placing something of a modest stake on just in case they do win this award this year, well it may just pay dividends for you to place a bet on Eddie Hall who is an interesting proposition thanks to his odds being 50/1 or even back Joe Root at some much bigger odds of 66/1!
