SPORTS PERSONALITY BET: Amir Khan’s impressive defence of his WBA title over Paulie Malignaggi has seen the Bolton man’s odds fall to 33/1. Wayne Rooney leads the way.
Amir Khan is 33/1 with Totesport to lift the annual year end gong after he vowed to unify the belts. He is expected to go for 1 more before the end of the year which, if he succeeds, would see his odds for Sports Personality Of The Year fall further.
Wayne Rooney, who was 2nd in top goalscorer in the Premiership and 2nd in the league with Manchester United, is 4/1 fav for the award with 888sport. The bookies are taking a cautious approach as the World Cup looms which could possibly see Rooney’s firepower up front propel England to a World Cup Final.
Last year’s runner up Jenson Button and golfer Lee Westwood are both 20/1 with Blue Square.
