Sportsbet has some fantastic specials markets on offer to the passionate punter!

After last weekend’s crumbling performance against the Bulldogs, Richmond are going into this weekend as favourites to reach the lowest score of the Round at $4.50.

Up against the Swans, the Tigers’ young side have not found their form this season – and may well be a worthy punt.

Up against the seemingly unstoppable Saints, Collingwood are at $8 to hit the lowest score despite a fantastic start to the season, and while St Kilda have dominated their matches – it is a lot to ask to hold the Pies to a low score line, who are at equal odds in the market to Melbourne.

In contrast, topping the market for the highest scoring team in Round 3 of the AFL is Sydney at $4.25.

The Swans are coming in on good form with a convincing win over Adelaide last weekend, and if able to hold Richmond in their home clash could be a lucrative punt.

Carlton and the Western Bulldogs are next in the odds at $5.50 and $7 respectively. The Western Bulldogs are a worthy bet, as they dominated in their Round 2 clash and will be coming into this weekend full of confidence despite facing a strong Hawthorn.

The Cats’ star player Gary Ablett is favourite to be the player with the most possessions at the end of the weekend at $5.

With an impressive 38 in Round 2, Ablett is always a safe bet in the possessions market.

Dane Swan for Collingwood is at $7 – but being up against the Saints this weekend could struggle to deliver.

Sam Mitchell, Nick Dal Santo and Kane Cornes are all at $11 for the Hawks, the Saints and the Power respectively.

The last special market on offer to punters is to pick four winners over either the Friday and Saturday games, or the Saturday and Sunday.

The combination of St Kilda, North Melbourne, Port Adelaide and Sydney to win their Round 3 matches is topping the odds for the Friday/Saturday market, while a Collingwood, West Coast, Brisbane and Richmond win would be the most lucrative at $100 over the first two days.

Ladbrokes.com.au also has general head-to-head markets for each match, along with who will score fist, half and full time score markets and many more – to check out the Round 3 AFL Season preview to help for punting on Round 3 click here.
