It's just one day until the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year Award, and Manxman Mark Cavendish remains the bookies favourite to pick up the award.

SkyBet, Bet365 and Blue Square are amongst the Bookmakers offering odds of 1/3 that the cycling star will collect the coveted trophy.

Over the past 12 months, Cav has become the first British rider to win the Tour de France green jersey, and also won the road race world championships.

It's the third time he's made the shortlist for the award.

His main competition for the award comes from major winning golfers Darren Clarke and Rory McIlroy, plus world champion athlete Mo Farah.

The trophy will be handed out tomorrow following a public vote.
