BBCSPOTY: Awesome Alistair Set For BBCSPOTY?

The groundswell of support for Alistair Brownlee to win the BBCSPOTY shows no signs of slowing down with William Hill now offering 4/1 that he is awarded the trophy having been 100/1 last Sunday.


“The BBCSPOTY tends to be won by an Olympian in Olympic years and after such a good campaign it is going to be difficult to choose the most worthy winner,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “But Alistair’s behaviour at the weekend has catapulted him ahead of most of the opposition as he is a worthy winner for both his sporting ability and his sportsmanship.”

William Hill BBCSPOTY: 2/1 Andy Murray, 5/2 Mo Farah, 4/1 Alistair Brownlee, 6/1 Laura Trott, 10/1 Nick Skelton, 16/1 Gareth Bale, 20/1 Max Whitlock, 25/1 Anthony Joshua, 25/1 Jason Kenny. 66/1 Chris Froome, 66/1 Jamie Vardy, 66/1 Lewis Hamilton, 80/1 Adam Peaty, 100/1 Bar
