Tyson Draws Fury Of BBC SPOTY Punters – Odds Drift From 4/1 To 20/1
Tyson Fury’s odds of winning BBC Sports Personality have once again drifted and he is now 20/1 to win it according to William Hill. Immediately after winning against Wladimir Klitschko, Fury was as short as 4/1 to win the gong, attracting bets of up to £200, however his odds are now all the way out to 20/1.
Andy Murray is 4/9 favourite to win ahead of Jessica Ennis-Hill at 5/2 and Kevin Sinfield at 12/1.
“Fury’s achievement against Wladimir Klitschko was fantastic, however, the award is about personality as well and he certainly rubs people up the wrong way. A SPOTY victory looks unlikely,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
SPOTY winner: 4/9 Andy Murray; 5/2 Jessica Ennis-Hill; 12/1 Kevin Sinfield; 20/1 Lewis Hamilton; 20/1 Tyson Fury; 66/1 Chris Froome; 80/1 Mo Farah; 100/1 Adam Peaty; 100/1 Greg Rutherford; 100/1 Lizzie Armistead; 100/1 Lucy Bronze; 100/1 Max Whitlock
