SPOTY: Ennis Will Win Say William Hill Punters!
Bradley Wiggins may be the 1/3 favourite with William Hill but according to their punters, it is Jessica Ennis (7/1) who will scoop the BBC Sports Personality of the Year this coming weekend.
Bradley Wiggins may have been the subject of the largest SPOTY bet this year (£10k at 2/7) but nearly 20% of all bets placed on the market have been for Jessica Ennis. Her closest rival is Andy Murray who has been the subject of just 14%. Mo Farah and Bradley Wiggins are both tied on 12% of all SPOTY bets with Wiggins attracting just 38 bets more than the 5,000m and 10,000m gold medallist.
"While our odds suggest that Bradley Wiggins will win the award with ease, our punters have different ideas and Jess Ennis is looking like she could upset the apple cart," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
