Which pro athlete made the biggest impact in 2017? Head to Paddy Power Sportsbook to find a full list of odds to bet on the sports personality of the year online.
The BBC’s sports personality of the year ceremony is an annual event in which the public votes for the UK athlete that they feel accomplished the most that year. There are a number of fantastic athletes to bet on this year, and many online sportsbooks in the UK are having a tough time predicting who deserves the nod.
Like many novelty bets offered at Paddy Power, this is a tough one to predict. As we mentioned before, the public chooses this one, and we’ve seen in the past that oftentimes the favorite to win doesn’t actually get the award. So who’s coming in as the betting favorite?
2017 BBC Sports Personality betting odds
One of the most popular UK athletes and arguably the most dangerous boxer alive right now is Anthony Joshua. The 17 only fought once in 2017, but it was considered one of the best fights of the past decade. He’ll fight once more in late October, and with a win might be the best option to bet on the sports personality of the year online with Paddy Power Sportsbook with odds of 4/11.
Chris Froome has established himself as one of the greatest cyclists of all time after his recent win at the Tour de France. He’s 32 years of age and might not hold the top spot for long, but he is certainly deserving of the award this year and holds odds of 6/1 to win.
