McDowell now favourite for Sports Personality
Graeme McDowell has been made 7/4 favourite by William Hill to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award after his putt clinched the Ryder Cup for Europe.
This comes after his massive win in the US Open earlier in the year so it is not hard to see why he has leaped up the betting.
Hills have also made Lee Westwood (20/1); Colin Montgomerie (25/1) and Rory McIlroy (66/1) contenders for the Award.
'The Ryder Cup is arguably the biggest sporting achievement of the year with British involvement, and it would be no surprise to see those involved sweeping the board at this year's BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hill make champion jump jockey and Grand National winning rider, Tony McCoy 2/1 second favourite to win the Award and also offer:
7/1 Jessica Ennis; 14/1 Lewis Hamilton; 14/1 Phil Taylor; 20/1 Westwood; Mo Farah; 25/1 Montgomerie; Paul Scholes; Mark Cavendish; 33/1 Amy Williams; 40 Jenson Button; 50 David Haye; 66 Philips Idowu; Rory McIlroy.
