According to online gambling news in US, there are 4 nominees in this year’s Best Female Athlete category. July 18 is the day the winner will be announced at Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, US.
With the help of Best Female Athlete 2018 odds, we can determine the sportswoman of the year. Are the stars of the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang really the best? Let’s take a look at their betting odds!
Winter Sports Athletes
It has been confirmed. The winter sports athletes are the bookies’ favorite to win Best Female Athlete 2018 of the ESPY Awards. US gambling sites estimate better winning odds for Chloe Kim (1.25) than Mikaela Shiffrin (4.74).
If Chloe Kim won the ESPY Awards for Best Female Athlete, she would make the first for the sports of snowboarding. This would not be the first world record that Chloe has broken. Earlier this year, she won Women’s Snowboard Halfpipe at PyeongChang Winter Olympics. This made her the youngest woman with a gold Olympic snowboarding medal! No wonder the Best Female Athlete 2018 odds favor Chloe Kim.
On the other hand, Mikaela Shiffrin (4.74) is the only second-time nominee on the list. She is no doubt the best alpine skier in the world, with numerous world cups and two Olympic gold medals. However, her performance at the 2018 Winter Olympics was underwhelming. Mikaela failed to win the slalom event, which she was supposed thrive!
Who Are Our Non-Winter Sports’ Nominees?
The final two nominees are soccer and basketball stars, Julie Ertz and Sylvia Fowles. Online betting sites in US predict 11 winning odds for Julie Ertz, the midfielder for Chicago Red Stars and US Women’s National Soccer Team. Although Julie is the US Soccer Female Player of the Year 2017, her Best Female Athlete 2018 odds are not very hopeful.
With the Minnesota Lynx player, Sylvia Fowles (6), her chance of becoming the Best Female Athlete in 2018 are decent. Recently, Sylvia has received the 2017 WNBA MVP Award which marks her as the top basketball player. Furthermore, the most awarded sports for ESPY Best Female Athlete is basketball!
