Best Sports Bets 2011

Ladbrokes have assessed the year ahead and are offering a series of special bets as to what may happen across the sporting spectrum.

From those that seem like dead certs (Capello to be England manager at the end of 2011), to live outsiders (Amir Khan to become undisputed champion before the end of the year) and complete long shots (Wales to be unbeaten in the 6 Nations & Rugby World Cup) the firm have covered all bases as they look ahead to what promises to be another great year of sport.

The 2011 Sports Personality of the Year odds have also been released early with Andy Murray the 4/1 market leader at this stage. 2010 winner A P McCoy was a 100/1 chance as the market was introduced in 2010 before ending up the 8/11 victorious favourite on the night.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Some of these specials are sure to be food for thought for fans up and down the country. A successful cross-sport accumulator could end up making 2011 a special year for punters as potential payouts are huge for those who can accurately map out 2011′s sporting calendar.”

He also added: “A P McCoy’s victory in the Sports Personality awards also serves to remind us that there is some value to be found at this early stage in the year.”
