Sports Personality of the Year Odds: Tom Daley 5/1 for the award

Following his gold medal performance at the Tokyo Olympic Games, the odds on Plymouth-born Tom Daley winning the coveted BBC Sports Personality of the Year award have been decisively slashed.

Punters have been backing Tom Daley in their droves in the SPOTY betting market following a triumphant performance in the Olympic Games and as such, his odds on winning the award have been comprehensively cut from a general 100/1 to as low as 9/2 with some firms. Indeed most bets have been aimed towards the 27-year-old in this market and he now lies second behind Dina Asher-Smith.

Having waited a lifetime, Daley will clearly be delighted with his Olympic gold medal and having burst onto the scene back in 2008 as a fresh-faced youngster, the wait for the ultimate prize will have seemed like a lifetime. Nevertheless after the scenes in Tokyo, it will certainly have been well worth the wait.

Punters and bookies are of the opinion that he may well be rewarded with the BBC award and there is a possibility that his odds could continue to shorten into favourite over the next day or two.

Mark Cavendish is general third favourite in the betting at odds as much as 10/1 although some firms go just 4/1. Next comes Laura Kenny at a general 8/1 while Adam Peaty and Raheem Sterling complete the top six at 10/1 and 12/1 respectively.
