Andy Murray 2-5 to be BBC Sports Personality of the Year

Andy Murray is odds-on at 2-5 with leading bookmaker Coral to be crowned the 2016 BBC Sports Personality of the Year following his win in the 2016 ATP World Tour Finals to secure his spot as the world number one at the end of the year.

Murray is also odds-on at 1-3 to be knighted in the Queen’s New Year’s honours list for 2017 after what has been a huge year with his success at Wimbledon, his Olympic gold medal, as well as his latest tournament victory at the O2 Arena. The British player is 13-8 to win the Australian Open in January and 33-1 to seal all four Grand Slam singles titles in 2017.

“Murray’s victory in the ATP World Tour Finals guarantees him the world number one spot at the end of 2016 and as a result he is the red hot odds-on favourite to be crowned the BBC Sports Personality of the Year, an award he has already won twice in his career,” said Coral’s John Hill.

“The betting also suggests Murray will be on the Queen’s New Year’s honours list in recognition of what has been a fantastic year for the British tennis star,” added Hill.
