SPOTY Prize Far From Decided

With wins for many British sportsmen this weekend, the SPOTY betting is far from just a two-horse race between Clarke and McIlroy.

Weekend wins for Mark Cavendish, Mo Farah, Amir Khan and Lewis Hamilton, as well as money for Tom Daley, prove that, despite the fantastic achievements of the two golfers heading the market, the BBC Sports Personality betting is still wide open, with Coral bookmakers seeing money and shortening the price of all five, while both golfers have drifted in the betting.

“After Clarke and McIlroy’s major wins this season it was difficult to see anyone other than a golfer winning, but this weekend has really shown that the prize still has a lot of life left in it between now and December,” said Coral spokesman Gary Burton.

Tom Daley was surprisingly backed into 40-1 (from 66-1), despite losing his world title by only finishing fifth in the final of the 10m platform in China on Sunday.
