Anyone wanting to bet on the 2017 BBC Sports Personality of the Year will find the best odds at one of the UK’s best online sportsbook, Paddy Power.
Every December, the BBC awards one UK athlete with the prestigious “sports personality of the year” award. There is no clear criteria for winning the award, it’s simply who the UK public feels made the biggest sporting impact that year.
Some great odds are available this year for those that like to bet on sports in the UK. At the top of the BBC sports personality of the year betting odds is Anthony Joshua, who’s coming off one of the best heavyweight boxing performances in recent memory over Wladimir Klitschko. Joshua is seen by most as the favorite to get the award this year with odds of 2/7.
Johana Konta is another great option for those looking to bet on the 2017 BBC Sports Personality of the Year. The 25 year old gave her allegiance to Great Britain in 2012, and has since represented the country at a number of major tournaments. Konta has an impressive 2016, and is now a favorite to win this year’s BBC award with odds of 8/1.
BBC Sports Personality Award betting underdogs
It’s not surprising to see underdogs win the award, and a number of athletes have some fantastic odds this year. One such athlete is Andy Murray, who’s the only person in history to win the Sports Personality of the Year award 3 times. Murray’s odds to win this year are set at 12/1.
Feeling really lucky? Consider placing a bet on Rory McIlroy to make UK gambling news by earning the award. The Northern Irish golfer is considered to be one of the best players in the world today, and is a betting favorite heading into the US Open. McIlroy’s odds to win the BBC’s award this year are set at 50/1.
