Beth Mead Now Odds-on Favourite for BBC Sports Personality of The Year

Beth Mead Odds to win BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2022

Beth Mead is now the odds-on favourite to be crowned 2022 BBC Sports Personality of the Year after England beat Germany in the Euro 2022 Final on Sunday.

Chloe Kelly’s extra-time goal was the difference as the Lionesses were crowned European Champions for the first time, but Beth Mead’s starring role en-route to the final has put her in pole position for the coveted accolade traditionally handed out in December.

The soccer star was a remote 80/1 shot at the start of the tournament, but Mead kicked off the Wembley final as 7/4 favourite as she led the goals race alongside Germany’s Alexandra Popp. Mead’s superior assist count ensured she was handed the Golden Boot and she has now sunk into 2/5 with Ladbrokes to scoop the BBC award having been named Player of the Tournament.

England captain Leah Williamson is now Mead’s biggest Sports Personality rival according to the betting. At 10/1 the skipper is trading as second favourite.

Snooker’s Ronnie O’Sullivan – who had been favourite for the award since he matched Stephen Hendry’s haul of seven World Snooker titles in May – has been pushed out to 14/1 from 4/1 with Betfair Sportsbook.

Jake Wightman, the runner won gold in the 1500 meters at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in July is another big drifter. 8/1 a few weeks ago, he can now be backed at 33/1 with Coral and Ladbrokes.

Only Harry Kane has held his price following the success of the Lionesses. The captain of the men’s squad can still be backed at 14/1. His chances clearly depend on a deep run by the England team in the Qatar World Cup that starts in November.
