Sports Personality of the Year Betting 2018

BBC Sports Personality Logo

At the end of the year in December, the sporting world takes an evening to reflect and look back at what has happened over the course of 2018. We see the highs and lows of the year, celebrating the achievements while also taking a moment to reflect on those no longer with us. At the end of the evening we crown the Sports Personality of the Year 2018, and the race this year looks sure to be a close one, with many people involved. Here are just a few names to look out for.

Harry Kane

The English football team breathed life into the nation once again this summer, with a huge number of people tuning in to see them perform admirably at the World Cup. They came close, and overachieved as a team but it was Harry Kane that landed the individual accolade of lifting the Golden Boot away. After a great season with Tottenham, six goals at the World Cup gave him the title of being the Golden Boot winner, something that catapulted him to the head of the betting for this award. With 10Bet he is the current 4/6 favourite to take the title.

Anthony Joshua

It’s been a while since a British boxer dominated any boxing division like Joshua has done and yet again he has shined this year. With a fight to come in September where he will once again defend his title belts, assuming Joshua wins that like he should, he is certainly in the running for this title. After a couple of years on top of the boxing world, maybe now is the time for Joshua to be recognised by taking this award. He is the second favourite to win the award, and is available at 59/20 with Karamba.

Lewis Hamilton

Since joining Mercedes, Hamilton has dominated Formula One and is looking to land another title this season. After winning three out of the last four titles, should he take the 2018 trophy then he will have won four out of the last five and the last three championships. This has been nothing else other than complete dominance for Hamilton, something that certainly throws hit hat in the ring to lift the Sports Personality of the Year title. Hamilton is 14/1 with Jetbull to lift the title, and if he wins the 2018 Drivers Championship, that price is sure to shorten.

Lizzy Yarnold

The winter superstar has to be involved when talking about potential winners of the Sports Personality title. She became the first Britain to defend her Winter Olympic title, and also the first person to win back to back Skeleton gold medals, her achievements should not be underestimated. She was fantastic in Pyeongchang for Team GB and although that was right at the start of 2018, firmly puts her in the reckoning to take this title. Yarnold can be backed for glory at 22/1 with 10Bet, and she looks to be a lively outsider.
