Giving you two chances to win, the first goal scorer category is going ahead on only two fixtures taking place this weekend.

The market allows punters to pick who they believe will score the first goal, and if they do not manage it, but instead claim the last – Ladbrokes.com.au will payout your original bet!

First off is tonight’s Essendon verse the Western Bulldogs fixture, which sees the Dogs favourite to claim the victory at $1.36, while the Bombers are at $3.17.

The Dogs’ Barry Hall is currently topping the odds as the player to secure the opening goal at $4.50.

Hall has been fantastic for the Dogs recently, and could be a safe bet, while teammate Mitchell Hahn is close behind in the odds at $11.

The home times favourite to score first is the young Michael Hurley at $13, while fellow Bomber Scott Gumbleton is at $15, equal to teammate Alwyn Davey.

The second match punters can take advantage of this market on is Saturday nights clash at the Gabba between the Brisbane Lions and Collingwood.

Kicking off at 7.10pm, the Pies are currently well ahead in the odds to claim the win at $1.29, while the Lions are at $3.65.

The home side’s Brendan Fevola is currently favourite as the player to score first at $8.50 – equal in the odds to his skipper Jonathan Brown.

However it is interesting to note punters may be backing the Fev to score first, but overall Collingwood is the favourite team to claim the first goal at $1.85, while the Lions are at $1.97.

Fevola is favourite to claim the title of leading goal scorer for Round 10 at $4.75, so could well be a safe bet for this market.

John Anthony is Collingwood’s favourite to score first in the match at $13, equal in odds to teammates Dayne Beams and Travis Cloke.

With so many options available to punters, why not head to Ladbrokes.com.au so you can make your dollar go that extra bit further!
