BBCSPOTY: Fury And Murray Cruise Into Contention

Suddenly the race to be named the BBCSPOTY 2015 has been blown wide open with Tyson Fury slashed from 50/1 into 4/1 and Jamie Vardy 16/1, from 40/1. Meanwhile, Andy Murray is unbeaten in the Davis Cup and is second favourite at 7/4 (from 5/2). The darling of British Athletics, Jess Ennis-Hill, is the current favourite at 5/4.

“You can make a great case for at least the top six in the betting. Who would have believed that the Tour de France winner would be an outsider for the award?” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
