If you are wondering whom to bet for this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year, we think that Andy Murray will be a safe choice, and Coral seem to think so too.
The Scottish tennis player is tipped to follow up his victory in this year’s world tour finals vs. Novak Djokovic, two days ago, when he managed to prove that he is the best in the world.
In addition to collecting this distinguished sporting achievement, Coral believes that he also has a high probability of being knighted in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list for next year after the amazing successful year he had. He triumphed at the Wimbledon as well as at the RIO Olympics and not to forget to mention his latest win at the O2 Arena, which guaranteed his first place at a world ranking.
This will not be Andy’s first win of the BBC SPORTY award, as he also won it last year, as well as in 2013.
A spokesman for the sportsbook stated that Andy’s victory in the ATP World Tour Finals does not only guarantee him the first place during this year but will most likely also bring him the BBC SPORTY, which is an award he managed to win twice during his career.
Coral also suggested that Andy Murray will be on the Queen’s Honours list in recognition to the fantastic year he has had so far.
Andy Murray’s odds at Coral are 2/5.
The other candidates and their chances for Coral are:
Alistair Brownlee 4/1
Mo Farah 7/1
Laura Trott 10/1
Gareth Bale 20/1
Nick Skelton 33/1
