One of the great memorable moments of the 2021 Olympic Games will be British diver Tom Daley collecting his gold.

In what is his fourth Olympic games, 13 years after making his debut, he finally got the coveted prize.

With a stunning final dive with partner Matty Lee, Daley, a European, Commonwealth and World Champion, delivered the gold.

On Monday that led to a rush of punters backing the diver to win the Sports Personality of the Year Award this year.

He had been cut from 100/1 into a quote of 11/2 at Betfair, such was the overwhelming amount of backing that he received following his golden moment*(betting odds recorded at 20:10 GMT on July 26th, 2021 at Betfair).

History-making Peaty to be recognised?

Adam Peaty has created history for Great Britain at the Olympic Games already.

As he once again dominated the 100m breaststroke, Peaty became the first British swimmer to successfully defend am Olympic title.

That gold has further propelled him to greatness. Peaty has now remained undefeated in his discipline since 2014.

On top of that, he holds the top sixteen fastest times in the world for the 100m breaststroke which is just incredible.

The 26-year-old has come down to a 10/1 quote in SPOTY 2021 betting.

However, he’s not received the kind of market support that Daley has had*(betting odds recorded at 20:10 GMT on July 26th, 2021).

Our betting prediction:
Dina Asher-Smith

Olympic Year lights up the SPOTY 2021 betting market

There is plenty more to come from the Olympics with some other big players on show for Great Britain including Dina Asher-Smith and Katrina Johnson-Thompson.

Asher-Smith’s quest for sprinting golds are likely to be some of the big, big highlights from the Games as she goes for the 100m and 200m individual sprint titles.

Without having run, Asher-Smith is the current market leader still in Sports Personality Of The Year betting.

Olympic champion Laura Kenny is back in the saddle as she bids for more Olympic cycling glory this year.

If she walks away from Japan with more in her belt, will she rise to the top of SPOTY betting?

Kenny is currently a quote of 13/2 in SPOTY betting*(betting odds recorded at 20:10 GMT on July 26th, 2021).

Will Hamilton have a say?

Lewis Hamilton is currently embroiled in a massive fight for the F1 title this year against Max Verstappen.

If he was to collect this record-breaking eighth world title this year, it will be something extremely special because of the way it will likely have to come about.

Some of those titles have been a breeze with little competition facing the Mercedes driver in recent years.

But this year Hamilton has a tremendous fight on his hands and he looks for greater glory in the sport.

Hamilton is a quote of 14/1 in SPOTY 2021 betting*(betting odds recorded at 20:10 GMT on July 26th, 2021).

That quote will likely be trimmed a long way if Hamilton gets title Number Eight on the board.
