BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2015

Recommended Posts

Tyson Fury 80/1. Betfair Sportsbook.

He's 4/1 to beat Klitschko this weekend. Take that as the true chance, and is he really a 16/1 shot to win SPOTY as a newly crowned Heavyweight World Champion? Factor in that i) it's a public vote, ii) he would get a load of media exposure, iii) his win would only be two weeks before the presentation, iv) the public could quite easily latch onto his 'cult of personality'. And I think that this could be a price.

I've never bet on a market like this before so I'm looking for some advice on anything I've missed before pulling the trigger. Anyone got thoughts?

One thing to remember is that the BBC now pick a shortlist of ten nominees themselves, as a response to and to stop a repeat of the farce of 2009 when Ryan Giggs won as mentioned by a previous poster. 

 

Therefore Steven Gerrard has no chance and I don't think Tyson Fury does either even if he makes the shortlist.

 

I'm hoping the smart money is Andy Murray, who I got on at 25/1 in the summer and I still think represents value at 4/1 second favourite.
