• BRISBANE SPOON ON THE CARDS  

    Melbourne’s upset win over Adelaide spells bad news for the Lions according to online bookmaker
    sportsbet.com.au, with Brisbane now $1.62 favourites to claim the wooden spoon.

    Regardless, punters are still getting on the Saints to finish on the bottom, with St Kilda the best backed team at $14.

    In other notable betting movements:

    ·        
    Sydney v Hawthorn: Buddy or no Buddy, punters are tipping the Hawks will still come out on top in
    this one, with three times the money on them at $1.44 over the Swans at $2.90.

    ·        
    Port Adelaide v Fremantle: Port are the real deal, that’s what punters are thinking anyway, with
    all of the early money coming for them at $1.58 with the Dockers $2.30 outsiders.  

    ·        
    Brisbane v Essendon: No early trends in this one, with punters not really keen on either team.  

    ·        
    Melbourne v Western Bulldogs: The Dees may be on a roll, but punters still aren’t convinced, with
    five times the money coming for the Bulldogs ($1.44) to get the win.   

    ·        
    West Coast v GWS: Punters are giving the Giants ($7.40) a real chance in this one, with more money
    for them than the Eagles ($1.08).   

    ·        
    Schulz Coleman smokey: Jack Gunston and Jarryd Roughead are equal $7.00 favourites for the Coleman,
    but its Jay Schulz who is attracting interest. He was $26 at the start of the year and is now into $9.00.  

    ·        
    Brownlow: Gaz keeps on shortening, he is now into $2.75 for the Brownlow!   

    ·        
    Lions new spoon favourites: With Melbourne pulling off an upset win, the Lions are now favourites
    to ‘win’ the wooden spoon. But the Saints are still the best backed at $14.
