McIlory Slashed For SPOTY

Rory McIlroy is the new odds-on favourite to win BBC Sports Personality of the Year, after Ladbrokes slashed his odds from 14/1 to 5/6.

The Ulsterman is now 7/1 favourite to win The Open next month, and the bookie offers 16/1 that he breaks Jack Nicklaus’ record of eighteen Major wins. It’s also 4/1 that he becomes World Number One at any time in 2011.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said, “The punters love McIlroy, and we’ve seen plenty of money come in for him to win Sports Personality. We’re expecting to see plenty more in the run-up to the Open, where he’s deservedly favourite after his display at the Congressional.”

To win Sports Personality of the Year 2011:
5/6 McIlroy (from 14/1)
4/1 Andy Murray (5/1 to win Wimbledon)
7/1 David Haye (5/4 to beat Klitschko)
10/1 Jessica Ennis
25/1 Lee Westwood
33/1 Luke Donald
33/1 Alistair Cook
33/1 Chris Ashton

12/1 T Woods
16/1 L Donald
20/1 M Kaymer
25/1 P Mickelson
33/1 M Kuchar
33/1 G Mcdowell
33/1 C Schwartzel
