ALTHOUGH only percentage separates these teams on the ladder its been a one-way street in terms of betting in the match with 80 per cent of all money on Geelong to win.

A week ago before both teams player they were equal favourites at $1.90.

Both teams won last Saturday night but the loss of star on baller Luke Dalhaus in the Bulldogs narrow and heroic victory over Port Adelaide has been the catalyst for the betting chances.

Straight after their wins the Bulldogs had drifted to $2.00 and since then they’ve drifted everyday and are now out to $2.40.

Conversely the Cats have firmed from $1.80 into $1.60.

The Cats have owned the Bulldogs in recent seasons having won their last eight clashes against them dating back to 2009.

The Bulldogs have won their last three matches and five of their last six games. They have also won 17 out of their last 21 games at Etihad.

Geelong are eight wins, three losses and a draw from its past two seasons at Etihad Stadium.
