Will we see another Hawthorn v Geelong Grand Final? The latest AFL odds from TAB’s Nick Quinn.
KANGAROOS and Carlton upsets are on the cards but Collingwood is no chance if betting trends this week are any guide. Follow the money for Round 14.
North Melbourne ($3.05)
They are $3.05 outsiders to knock off the Crows on their home turf but punters are giving the Kangaroos a real shot. They have been the best backed team, just, with 54 per cent of the market bet on them.
“The Roos have lost three of the last four but punters don’t think they are done with yet. In a game which clearly favours the Crows punters have shown more interest in North Melbourne,” TAB’s Nick Quinn said.
Once again punters are looking for value and have shown a real interest in Carlton at $7 to beat GWS — 82 per cent of the market has been bet on the Blues.
“Whether it’s the good odds on offer for Carlton or the fact that the Giants were unconvincing last week, this has been one of the biggest surprises of the week with punters really thinking the Blues can pull off an upset,” Quinn said.
The Pies are favourites against Fremantle, but punters don’t trust them — only 17 per cent of the market has been bet on them.
“This isn’t too much of a surprise, Fremantle have won a few in a row and Collingwood are struggling, but only 17 per cent on the Pies as favourites says plenty,” Quinn said.
St Kilda ($5.75)
The Saints were impressive in their most recent match but after Geelong’s demolition of the Bulldogs last week this is one-way traffic — only 3 per cent of the market is on St Kilda.
“We can hardly take a bet on St Kilda, punters are really having a go at the $1.15 on Geelong,” Quinn said.
One punter is convinced Gold Coast’s season is about to spike, beating $200 at $16 for the Suns to beat Hawthorn.
