After making one of their greatest performances from the Ashes yesterday england cricketer Ben Stokes is as short as 1/6 to be crowned Sports Personality of the Year 2019.
Those odds mean some bookmakers are suggesting an 85.7% likelihood Stokes scoops the person accolade at December.
Having a whopping 91.7percent of stakes available on the marketplace in the previous 24 hours, he is unsurprisingly definitely the very endorsed.
The 28-year-old had one hand to the prize in England World Cup because of his unbelievable participation win in the end of May.
However, yesterday his extraordinary 135 not-out only (with just a bit of help from his bespectacled sidekick Jack Leach) rescued England’s Ashes effort at Headingley.
Australia had all the momentum after lunch and when Stokes’ venture with Jonny Bairstow was brought to an abrupt end, all looked lost for England.
Putting on a last wicket stand of 76 runs to finish a record 359 run pursuit, Stokes struck 74 of those runs, including an six.
The Ashes series is now tied 1-1 and Stokes has written his name into the history books with a few of their most astounding performances in sport.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”When Ben Stokes hammered that final four fist climbed moments before the entire nation jumped to its feet.
“He’s had the English loyal in the hands of his hands , and yesterday’s antics have catapulted him by cricketing hero to some thing similar to a legend of English sport. In case Freddie Flintoff was worthy of SPOTY in 2005, then they may also donate it to Ben Stokes now.”
