Sterling’s 17 Premier League goals and eight assists have helped City to romp to the title and likely propel him to a starting position at the World Cup.
Teammate Leroy Sane is also nominated for Young Player of the Year and is 7/5 (2.40) to win it in just his second season in England.
The German is also nominated for the main prize, which is hardly a surprise considering his nine goals and 12 assists this term, as well as an injection of pace and exciting play he has brought to the Premier League.
Next in the betting comes Harry Kane, who, despite netting 21 times or more in each of his last four seasons, has only won this award once.
