Ben Stokes has become the heavy favourite at 6/4 to be named 2019’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year with bookmaker 888sport, after his heroics as England lifted the Cricket World Cup.


Stokes, who scored an unbeaten 84 during the regular match and a vital 8 not out in the super over against New Zealand, was man-of-the-match as England claimed their first ever men’s World Cup trophy.

Available at 25/1 for the prestigious Sports Personality gong before Sunday’s game, his virtuoso performance has seen him backed in as a heavy favourite for the end-of-year award with 888Sport.

He moves ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who also saw his odds cut from 10/1 to 6/1 after winning the British Grand Prix on a big Sunday for sport in the UK.

Raheem Sterling is also fancied at 9/1, with Dina Asher-Smith, Geraint Thomas, and fellow World Cup winner Joe Root all available at 10/1.

“Ben Stokes put in a performance for the ages at Lord’s and has certainly written his name into sporting folklore,” an 888Sport spokesperson told Bettingpro.com.

“While he’s no doubt still celebrating the trophy he won on Sunday evening, we think the British public could give him another one – and he’s now heavy favourite to be named Sports Personality of the Year.”
