Mo Farah most popular pick for BBC Sports Personality with punters but Anthony Joshua is 1/7 favourite for Award

Ladbrokes have revealed that more bets have been placed on Mo Farah winning the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award than on any of the other nominees but it is Anthony Joshua who remains the odds-on favourite to pick up the gong.

Anthony Joshua might be heading the BBC Sports Personality of the Year market, but Mo Farah is the most popular pick with punters, according to Ladbrokes.

AJ is as short as 1/7 for the BBC gong, while Lewis Hamilton is his nearest challenger at 7/1. Chris Froome has drifted from 10/1 to 33/1 this week, and that's a price he shares with the most popular selection in the market in Farah.

And the bookies can report that before the 12-strong shortlist was announced, Jermain Defoe was the most backed sports star in the field.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes told Bettingpro: 

"It's hard to see past AJ after another stunning year in the ring, but at 33/1, plenty of punters reckon that if anyone is likely to cause an upset, it'll be Farah."

BBC Sports Personality of the Year

Anthony Joshua - 1/7
Lewis Hamilton - 7/1
Mo Farah - 33/1
Chris Froome - 33/1
Harry Kane - 40/1
Jonathan Rea - 50/1
Adam Peaty - 66/1
Jonnie Peacock - 66/1
Anya Shrubsole - 100/1
Johanna Konta - 100/1
Bianca Walkden - 200/1
Elise Christie - 200/1
