This weekend provides what could certainly be considered the match of the year and Sportsbet have given the Collingwood V Geelong its own market.

Currently favourite to score the most points is the Cats superstar Gary Ablett at $2.25, while teammates Paul Chapman and Jimmy Bartel are at $2.90 and $4.55 respectively.

The Pies’ only hope to score the highest is Alan Didak at $7.50.

There is also a market for which group of players will score the most, with the more favourable being Cameron Mooney, Steve Johnson and Chris Dawes for Geelong at $1.85.

However the combinations of the Pies’ Alan Didak, Travis Cloke and James Podsiadly are at $1.95 to score the most goals.

Odds for whether or not the crowd attendance at the MCG will be bigger this Friday night than on ANZAC Day are currently at $1.66 for less, and $2.10 for more, but as we draw closer and the build up intensifies this could become a lucrative payout.

Currently favourite to emerge from the weekend as the team to secure the lowest score are North Melbourne at $7 who are up against the Western Bulldogs.

Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles are close behind in the odds – both at $8, and play Port Adelaide and St Kilda respectively.

Rounding out the odds for the market are Carlton and Essendon at $34 each, and as the duo face Hawthorn and Richmond respectively it is no surprise to see them favourites to claim the highest score, both at $5.50.

In contrast, North Melbourne are rounding out the odds – clearly favourites to not get many past the Dogs as they go into the weekend at $41 to claim the highest score.

One of the favourites among punters are the pick four winner markets which are split over Friday and Saturday fixtures, and Saturday and Sunday.

Currently the safest bet for the Friday/Saturday market is the combination of Geelong, Western Bulldogs, Sydney and Port Adelaide which are at $6.20, while for the Saturday/Sunday market the combination of Essendon, Brisbane Lions, Carlton and St Kilda are the safest at $5.25.

However, the most lucrative wager over the course of the weekend is the combination of Richmond, Adelaide, Hawthorn and St Kilda at $48.50.
