Biggest SPOTY Bet Of The Year So Far...On Wiggins
William Hill have taken their largest Sports Personality of the Year bet this year after a punter in a shop in Yorkshire staked £10,000 on Bradley Wiggins at 1/3. That has prompted his odds to be cut slightly to 3/10. Should he win, the gutsy punter will scoop £13,333.33. Mo Farah is the 11/2 second favourite with "William Hill Sportswoman of the Year", Jess Ennis, 7/1.
"In a year of such sporting greatness it is proving difficult for us to determine who will win but our punters are starting to pile onto Wiggins and with the award determined by a public vote, that support could prove telling," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
