As we come into Round 4 of the regular 2010 AFL Season, there are three teams still searching for their first win of the campaign, but one above all others seems to be struggling more – Richmond.
With the lack of form and spontaneity so far this season, Sportsbet have given the bottom of the table Tigers their own market – the Toothless Tigers.
The Tigers have not shown any progress on the oval in the first three rounds of the Aussie rules season, and are going into the Round 4 clash against Melbourne with the news four of their starters are suspended.
The 21-year-old Daniel Connors has been removed from training with the club for the first six of his eight week suspension after being intoxicated in The Tigers’ Sydney hotel last Sunday morning.
Defender Luke McGuane, medium defender Dean Polo and former Eagle Ben Cousins have all been suspended due to their actions on Sunday morning.
Sportsbet have given the bottom of the table Tigers their own market – the Toothless Tigers.
While up against fellow early-season strugglers Melbourne, the Tigers have drifted from $2.55 to $3.35 to beat the Demons – which they would normally have considered a possible winning battle.
The Toothless Tigers market for 2010 with Sportsbet is offering punters the opportunity to wager on whether or not the Richmond side will win a match in the regular season this year.
Currently the odds for the Tigers to win a game are at $1.16, while for the bottom of the table side to not win a game would provide a lucrative payout at $5.
The Tigers are now clear favourites to win the highly unwanted wooden spoon at $1.50 – while this weekends opposition The Demons, are at $5.
