Gareth Bale’s SPOTY odds slashed after Euros euphoria
Gareth Bale could be scoring his way to this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year award, after a stunning summer at the European Championships.
The Real Madrid star has been at the forefront of Wales’ success at the Euros with three vital goals, and Bale is now 8/1 for the annual gong, in from 50/1.
Andy Murray is also 8/1 with Bale, but the former Tottenham’s man’s odds will tumble further if he can lead Wales to glory versus Belgium in their quarter-final clash on Friday night.
The bookies have served up a host of Bale specials for the match, including 12/1 on the world’s most expensive player scoring a third direct free-kick of the tournament.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Bale wasn’t a SPOTY contender before the Euros, but his roaring performances for the Dragons in France have fired him right into contention.
