Gerrard New Sports Personality Favourite After Liverpool Win
Steven Gerrard has collapsed in price from 5/1 to 2/1 favourite for Sports Personality following a run of bets on the back of Liverpool’s victory against Manchester City on Sunday. The Liverpool skipper heads a field consisting of Lewis Hamilton at 4/1, Chris Froome at 7/1, Andy Murray at 9/1 and Lizzy Yarnold at 12/1.
A number of bets with some as large as £200 in the aftermath of Liverpool’s decisive victory suggests that there are a number of people who think that a title victory for Liverpool could see the skipper collect the award.
“Steven Gerrard’s tears at the end of the match against City show just how much the victory meant to him, his fans and the city of Liverpool and if Liverpool win the title, there is every chance that the SPOTY gong could be his,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Sports Personality winner: 2/1 Steven Gerrard; 4/1 Lewis Hamilton; 7/1 Chris Froome; 9/1 Andy Murray; 12/1 Lizzy Yarnold; 14/1 Ronnie O ‘Sullivan; 14/1 Rory McIlroy; 16/1 Kelly Gallagher; 20/1 Mo Farah; 25/1 Lee Westwood; 33/1 BAR
