BBC Sports Personality of the Year: Rebecca Adlington betting odds favourite

 With the race to become BBC Sports Personality of the Year likely to be harder fought than at any time this century, William Hill are inviting punters to predict who will finish first and second and believe that the most likely 1-2 combination is that Rebecca Adlington will beat Lewis Hamilton for which they offer 9/2. "With the Olympic team producing so many charismatic gold medal winners but with Lewis Hamilton still a serious contender for the World title and Andy Murray still in the running to win a Grand Slam, there are many more genuine candidates for the honour than for many years", said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
