James O’Connor & Adam Scott early Cleo Bachelor of the Year favourites

Although the final 50 are yet to be revealed, Wallabies young gun James O’Connor and golfer Adam Scott have emerged as the front runners to win the 2012 Cleo Bachelor of the Year title, starting as equal $3.00 favourites with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au. With only a handful of names available as to who is in the running this year, punters can get in early and put their money on those who have been mentioned. AFL and Collingwood midfielder Sharrod Wellingham is also a short price chance at $5.00. With swimming star Eamon Sullivan winning last year’s title, sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson said he expected the athletes to once again be the ones to beat in 2012. “While the final 50 is yet to be revealed, we think 2012 will be the athletes year and at the moment we can’t split James O’Connor and Adam Scott,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson. “Ana Ivanovic might not be too happy about Adam Scott being in the market, so she may be tempted to place some bets on the other competitors!” View Cleo Bachelor of the Year odds
