AP McCoy: Wave of Bets For Knighhood

William Hill can report huge popularity for AP McCoy to receive a knighthood in the New Year’s Honours list and have been forced to slash the price on him becoming ‘Sir Anthony’.

“This is one of the biggest waves of betting we’ve seen on a sportsman receiving a knighthood ever and if the betting is an indication of popular opinion, then there is real, genuine affection from the public and a desire to see his achievements recognised,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

William Hill have more than halved the price on AP McCoy getting a knighthood in the 2016 New Year’s Honours list from 16/1 on Saturday to a current price of 6/1.
