It may only be the start of the year, but we have a great BBC Sports Personality 2018 Winner Tip. Athlete Mo Farah won in 2017, tennis ace Andy Murray won in 2016 for the 3rd time (he also won in 2013 & 2015), with Formula 1 superstar Lewis Hamilton winning in 2014.
Our BBC Sports Personality 2018 Winner Tip is Lewis Hamilton. Other possible contenders we considered but ignored, were:
- Anthony Joshua – we feel he would have won in 2017 after an amazing year, if he was ever going to win.
- Harry Kane etc. – we don’t see England going far in World Cup 2018, so we would rule out any footballers.
- Andy Murray – struggling with injuries, so we don’t see him winning any Grand Slams this year.
On the other hand, 2018 is the year Hamilton could win his FIFTH Formula 1 title. Of course, he is only likely to have any chance of winning SPOTY 2018, IF he wins the 5th title, but we feel the price adequately reflects this. Lewis Hamilton to win is priced at 18/1 at Sun Bets (Odds checked on 11th January 2018, but may change at any time). We see this price as great value for the British F1 superstar to win SPOTY for the 2nd time.
