Current prices, as of this morning;
Lewis Hamilton @ 11/10
Marcus Rashford @ 7/4
Something does not feel right here. On the face of it Rashford should be a lock, & long odds on, but he's not even favourite. The bookies are rarely wrong with these things.
There has to be a twist in the tail here.
To win SPOTY you first have to be nominated, & perhaps that's the angle - he does not get nominated, but instead is given a one-off "Special Award".
Betting Rashford ought to be printing, but it's "no bet" for me, this all just feels a bit odd. When something looks to good to be true, it usually is.
