BBC Sports Personality Steps Up A Gear Following Dramatic Weekend

Harry Kane is the Even money favourite with William Hill to win this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year although there are a number of successful sportsmen and women in the running behind him.

 

Geraint Thomas is 5/2 second favourite to win after securing the Tour de France title over the weekend, while Lewis Hamilton is 14/1 after opening up a 24 point gap at the top of the Drivers’ Championship.

 

Lizzy Yarnold is 20/1 after her gold medal at the Winter Olympics and is the same price as Everton and England goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford.

 

“We still have a few months of the year left to witness more sporting brilliance, but even now, the top of the betting is packed with quality,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
