olympic spoty news
While the start of the Premier League is still a couple of days away, let’s check out another traditional market - BBC SPOTY & it got affected by the results of the Olympic Games.

Great Britain has had quite a success during this Summer Olympic Games. While athletes are slowly packing up to get home, let’s take a look at how the success at the Olympics affected the odds for one of the most popular novelty betting markets - BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

According to the top online bookmakers, this year we have a couple of favourites, among whilst you can also find plenty of Olympic champions. The market is currently led by Jason Kenny, who became the most decorated British Olympian ever. The majority of the market, including the bookmaker William Hill, is currently paying at 3.00 (2/1) for Jason. While Mr. Kenny is leading the run for the most prestigious individual honour in the UK sport, his wife, Laura Kenny, is also in a run, some top online bookies are listing her quite high on the market, as well.

Bookmaker Unibet lists the Olympic couple both at the odds of 3.00 (2/1). However, the highest odds for Mrs. Kenny can be found at Betfair. This top online bookie offers the odds of 13.00 (12/1) for Laura Kenny, at the same time the majority of the market has her at 6.00 (5/1).

The Kenny couple are not the only Olympians who make a strong case for this year’s SPOTY award. Tom Daley is another high-runner for the award. Most of the bookmakers offer the odds of 3.25 (9/4) for Tom, however, bookmaker 888sport lists him as its main favourite.

You can also find a couple of other big names like Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Ben Stokes, Marcus Rashford, Lewis Hamilton & Anthony Joshua.
