Golden Boot Winner Kane Leads SPOTY Betting

Harry Kane is the 7/4* favourite with Ladbrokes, William Hill, Coral and Betfred to be named the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year on Sunday night.

In a year when few British sports stars have excelled, Kane is the market leader thanks to his achievement at this summer’s World Cup, where he won the Golden Boot. His six goals in Russia are part of a 37-goal haul in all competitions in 2018. He has scored nine goals in the Premier League so far this season.

Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas is second in a betting market that looks a little more open than usual. The Team Sky rider is a best price of 5/2* with Paddy Power.

Lewis Hamilton dominated the Formula One season to win his fifth world title, and the 2014 winner of the SPOTY award is a best price of 5/1* with Bet365 and Paddy Power to take the accolade again.

Tyson Fury is a 7/1* chance with Bet365 after making a successful return to the boxing ring this year, while the women’s challenge is headed by Dina Asher-Smith and Lizzy Yarnold at 20/1* with Bet365 and 40/1* with BetVictor respectively.
