It is of course via the Sports Personality of the Year Award that the UK will be honouring a sportsman or woman who has excelled in their chosen sport and have gained the utmost respect and admiration from sports fans from Great Britain.

Over the years there have been plenty of sports personalities that have won that award, and over the years some unexpected sportsmen and women have won that award, as it is often the case the favourite to win that award doesn’t actually do so.

One novelty type of bet you can place an quite a number of online and mobile betting sites is going to see you being able to place a bet on who you think will win that award, and as such if you think you have a good idea of who will win it in 2018, then below I will be giving you some ideas of the current odds you can get on a range of different sporting personalities!

Two people however are the current first and second favourite at betting site such as Betfred to win that award, and they are Harry Kane at 10/11 and also Anthony Joshua who is on offer at slightly higher odds of 4/1.

Could Chris Froome Win the SPOTY Award?

You may however feel that Chris Froome the cyclist has a good chance of winning the Sports Personality of the Year Award in 2018, and if so then you can pick up and make use of some fairly high odds of 12/1 on him doing so if you place your bet sooner rather than later.

However, a couple of additional sportsmen that are in with a fairly reasonable chance of winning the award but at some much higher valued odds than those of the first and second favourites to win this award include the likes of Jordan Pickford at 12/1 and Lewis Hamilton at 14/1.

Some Outsiders to Win the SPOTY Award in 2018

Just be aware that there is only going to be one single person that will win the Sports Personality of the Year Award each year, and with that in mind let me now run through a few of the outsiders to win this award.

It may be a good idea for you to place a handful of bets on this event if you do feel that one of the outsiders could win it, as you will have a much better chance of picking one of the potential winners by placing more than one bet of course.

Lizzy Yarnold at 20/1 looks a fair and reasonable bet as does also Harry Maguire at 25/1, however you may be a fan of Rory Mcilroy and if so then you will surely be tempted to place a bet on him at his current odds 33/1, a couple of other very well known sportsmen who are on offer at odds of 33/1 include both Mark Williams and Dele Alli.

A few other potential winnings of this award include the likes of Adam Peaty and Kyle Edmund at 40/1, and you can get odds of 50/1 currently on Jordan Henderson, John Stones, and Tony Bellew and also on Nicola Adams too.
