As per usual, Ladbrokes.com.au have some great markets and odds on offer for AFL fans looking to really get in and amongst the action taking place this weekend – to check out the fixtures for Round 10, click here.
Looking to emerge from the upcoming weekend as the team to have secured the lowest score is Adelaide and Melbourne, both even in the odds at $5.50.
They face St Kilda and Geelong respectively, with the Demons sure to be the safest out of the two considering how dominant the Cats have been of late.
Last week’s lowest scorers were Collingwood up against the Cats which just proves how punters who go against the favourite odds result with substantial payouts, however they are away to the Lions this weekend and therefore have odds of $51 – equal to Carlton and Port Adelaide.
It is no surprise to see Geelong rounding out the odds for this market at $101, and therefore topping the category as to which side will score the highest this round – at $3.50.
Fremantle are also up there at $5, and as they play at home to North Melbourne could provide a convincing payout.
Last week’s highest scorers were Essendon with 130 points, although they were up against a lacklustre Richmond side – and go into this weekend at $41 to claim the highest score again.
In a non surprising turn of events, the Crows and the Dees round out the odds – both sitting at $151, while Port Adelaide may be a worthwhile punt at $8 as they face the disappointing Tigers.
Looking to claim the title of leading goal kicker is Brisbane Lions’ Brendan Fevola at $4.75.
The Lions’ new recruit started the season strong despite off the field controversy, however of late has looked tired and has been controlled well by oppositions, and up against the Pies could be a waste bet.
Hawthorns’ forward Lance Franklin and Freos’ elite centre half-forward Matthew Pavlich are perhaps safer, with the duo at $5 each.
Favourite to emerge from the weekend with the most disposals is the ever reliable Gary Ablett at $2.50.
The Cats’ forward midfielder claimed 32 last week, and is certainly always up there when it comes to possession.
However those looking to back someone different, Collingwood’s Dane Swan and The Powers’ Kane Cornes are next in line at $11 and $12 respectively.
One of the toughest markets to get right and therefore the most lucrative is the option of picking four winners in the round, and this week only one market covers all the games.
Currently the safest punt is the combination of the Western Bulldogs, Geelong, Port Adelaide and Collingwood at $2.10, while St Kilda, Hawthorn, Carlton and Fremantle all winning is at the same odd.
However if you are looking for a large payout, putting a dollar or two on the combination of Essendon, Melbourne, Richmond and Brisbane winning would certainly be the way to go at $560.
