BBC SPOTY Odds Slashed On Terry After Race VerdictEnglish Premier League
After being found not guilty of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand today, Paddy Power slashed their odds for John Terry to be awarded this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year to 250/1.
Terry’s achievements over the past year include famously lifting the Champions League trophy wearing full kit despite not taking part in the final because of suspension.
Despite Terry by all accounts being a no-hoper for the honour – with previous descretions including an alleged affair with Wayne Bridge’s girlfriend and taking bungs to give tours of Stamford Bridge – the Chelsea captain is a staggeringly short 100/1 with Betfred to win SPOTY.
Those odds are even more startling when you consider there is little Terry can achieve between now and the awards ceremony in December, while there is a home Olympics with numerous heroes-in-waiting.
