Andy Murray fans playing the long game on 10/1 SPOTY win

| 20.06.2017

Punters are taking a risk in hoping a successful few weeks for Andy Murray will leave them laughing all the way to the bank, according to the latest odds.

We can report the world number one has been the subject of a flurry of bets as he prepares to retain his Queen’s Club and Wimbledon titles.

The Scot is favourite to win both tournaments as things stand, but it’s the BBC Sports Personality of the Year market which has attracted interest in recent days.

He’s currently the 10/1 third-favourite to win the SPOTY gong for the fourth time in his career, while Anthony Joshua remains the 1/4 favourite with Johanna Konta an 8/1 shot.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Plenty are fancying Murray to return to his best over the next few weeks.

“And were he to win at both The Queen’s Club and Wimbledon, it’s safe to say that 10/1 will be slashed accordingly and he’ll close the gap between himself and AJ at the head of the market.”
