BBC SPOTY 2017

    The annual Sports Personality of the Year celebration is on BBC1 tonight.
    Anthony Joshua is a around a 1/7 chance and should win it. Boxers have a good record winning this and that should continue.
    Lewis Hamilton is World Champion again and should be in the top 3 as he is hugely popular in England and F1 drivers also have a great record of landing in the top 3.
    The value for me is Harry Kane at 2/1 Top3 finish (Boyles). Froome has blown it with his dubious positive test last week which leaves dark clouds hanging over him right now. Mo Farah couldnt get in the top 3 when he was winning double gold at the Olympics so I dont expect that to change this year.
    Kane is a likable and humble enough guy who's been doing it for Spurs and England all year and that could sneak him in to the top 3 ahead of Jonathan Rea of Superbikes.

    It was an amazing result.
    Joshua 1/10 before the betting stopped and didn't finish in the Top 3? :eek:
    Some motorbike rider called Jonathan Rae who most people had never heard of, finished 2nd and was only 3,000 votes from winning it :eek:.
    Mo Farah was 50/1 in some places just before the result which is strange as
    there has to be people who knew.
    Would have been some double, McClean Irish and Farah UK!
