Andy Murray might not have the fun-loving joker charm of Novak Djokovic – or the ice-cool smoothness of Rodger Federer. In fact he’s a bit grumpy and moans at himself a lot. But that isn’t stopping Paddy Power paying out early on him winning sport’s biggest personality award.
England bowler Jimmy Anderson could take every wicket in a 5-0 series win against the Australians, bowling left-handed while juggling a beer and a hotdog – and still wouldn’t take the Sports Personality of The Year award off Andy Murray.
The Scot – who became the first Brit to win Wimbledon for 77 years – has already ruined Paddy’s year by beating Novak Djokovic in the final at SW19. That cost the boss a tidy £2 million refund and is up there with the 2011 Barcelona deal and 2012 Sprinter Sacre offer as the most ridiculous brainwaves to come out of Paddy’s head.
Now Murray is 1/25 to win SPOTY and Paddy has decided to pay out on that as well. It’s going to cost a pretty penny and that abacus he ordered off Amazon can’t come quick enough.
The early payout means more cash in your e-wallet to brighten up your Monday.
- All single bets on Andy Murray to win Sports Personality of the Year 2013 placed up to 11.50am on Monday July 8 2013 will be settled as winners.
Murray’s success will go down as one of the most costly pay-outs in Paddy Power history. If you see Paddy around – give him a hug. He needs it.
