The 21-year-old has made a great start to the season and Oddschecker claims Neves has attracted 36% of all bets over the past week
Ruben Neves has emerged as a contender to land the PFA Young Player of the Year award this season.
The Wolves midfielder, 21, is up there with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Naby Keita to claim the prize following his strong start to the season.
According to Oddschecker, Neves has attracted 36% of all bets over the past week after the Portuguese shined during Wolves’ 1-0 win away at West Ham last weekend.
As a result, bookies have cut odds on him winning the accolade, from 25/1 to as short as 12/1.
However, Manchester City star Raheem Sterling is still the bookies’ favourite to win the award at 5/1, followed by Naby Keita (7/1), Leroy Sane (9/1) and Richarlison (11/1).
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “The star of Wolves’ climb back to the Premier League, Neves drew rave reviews in the Championship, and that momentum is more than carrying over to the Premier League.
“He’s being heavily backed to make a splash in his first season in the top division, with over a third of all bets being placed on the 21-year-old taking the title off last year’s winner Leroy Sane.”
