We’ve had Brexit sweep the nation and the US Election dominate the front pages as well as the betting markets.
Both are over and done with now, so let’s lighten the mood. Let’s take a look at a huge 66/1 TV treble courtesy of the brilliant traders here at Betfred!
Andy Murray to win Sports Personality of the Year
At an odds on price of 4/9, it really is hard to make a case for anyone other than Andy Murray being crowned Sports Personality of the Year for the third time.
If crowned SPOTY, the Scot will be the first person in history to win the prestigious award on successive occasions and will be the stand alone leader in the all-time table ahead of Nigel Mansell, Henry Cooper and Damon Hill – all with two.
The Tennis star’s odds drifted after Alistair Brownlee’s (7/2) selfless heroics saw him assist his exhausted brother, Jonny, in the Mexico World Triathlon Series.
Since then, however, the Wimbledon champion has risen to the top of the world rankings, displacing Novak Djokovic after his title triumph in Paris.
The only odds on selection on this treble, Murray won’t let us down here. He’s set to make history!
Second on the leader board this week to Danny Mac, Mrs Redknapp offers incredible value at 5/2. The former eternal singer was given a score of 37 this week and her popularity amongst the public makes her a safe bet to make the final.
She is 4/11 to be the last female standing and you really can’t see past that.
The former Eternal singer, coupled by dance partner Kevin Clifton, recorded the best score so far two weeks ago, with their tasty tango being awarded a 39 from the judges.
There are some talented dancers left in this year’s competition but Louise and Danny are head and shoulders above the rest. The 5/4 on the Hollyoaks star is possibly a little short with so long left to go. 5/2 on Louise, however, represents fantastic value.
Finally, I’m A Celebrity is upon us, and this year’s line-up is sure to offer some interesting moments.
The producers started the ball rolling with a daunting task for the celebs, with half of the team made to walk out over a narrow plank at 300ft.
First up was Carol Vorderman, who herself had previously insisted she was going to approach the show with a “can do” attitude.
She did just that and actually won the challenge, saving her partner Lisa Snowdown from the dreaded Bushtucker trial.
Surprisingly, the ever popular 55-year-old is sixth favourite to be crowned queen of the jungle, and her Betfred odds of 10/1 are unlikely to stick around for too long!
