Sports betting promotions are widely available on a whole host of betting markets. One event that you can bet on ahead of time is BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2016. This event typically takes place in December, however, you can often lock in better odds by voting ahead of time, ensuring a greater return on your free bets. This is because some significant events are yet to take place, such as the Olympics, and the Euros have not yet concluded, meaning the situation could well change.
At present, Anthony Joshua and Jamie Vardy look to be the main contenders. Jamie Vardy had an incredible season with Leicester City, scoring 24 goals and leading them to Premier League glory, something that was odds of 5,000/1 at the start of the season. It is likely that he won’t even have to repeat last season’s performance when the Premier League starts in August to stay in the running. If you want to place your free bet offers on this, the highest price you can get at the moment is around 7/2.
On the other hand, you can get slightly better odds for Anthony Joshua, with more to come from him this year. He won the IBF World Championship in convincing fashion against Charles Martin earlier this year, but a unification fight with Tyson Fury could be on the cards if both come out of their upcoming fights unscathed. If he were to beat Fury, surely he would win the award? The UK seems to have fallen in love with the humble Watford-born boxer.
What about those at slightly bigger odds? Gareth Bale is priced at 16/1, and if he leads Wales to Glory in the Euros, you’d definitely see these odds slash considerably. You then have to take a look at those athletes competing in the Rio Olympics when looking for the best sports betting promotions. Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis-Hill are, unsurprisingly, in contention. But, what about Greg Rutherford? He’s priced at 50/1 and a successful Olympic Games would definitely see him become a closer contender.
