As Richmond and St Kilda face off, odds are on for who will claim the Ian Stewart Medal this year, which is given to the player considered to be the best on ground in the fixture.
Currently topping the odds is the Saints’ Brendon Goddard and Lenny Hayes at $9 each, while the best hopeful for the Tigers is Brett Deledio at $13.
Also this weekend, Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs are up against one another, and therefore the Bob Rose-Charlie Sutton Medal is up for grabs, awarded to the player on the winning side to have show courage, skill, leadership and sportsmanship.
At the moment the Pies’ Dane Swan and the Dogs’ Matthew Boyd and Adam Cooney are topping the odds at $11 each.
Scott Pendlebury and Ryan Griffen from the Magpies and the Saints respectively are next in line at $13.
Currently looking as the side to emerge from the weekend with the lowest score is Richmond at $5.50.
They face a daunting challenge this week, when they play the Saints and will more than likely score low, so could be a safe bet.
Close in the odds are the West Coast Eagles at $6, and as they face the inform Geelong, who are powering on all cylinders at this point in the season are certainly worth a punt.
Last rounds lowest scorers were Port Adelaide who only managed 30 points against the Tigers, and are at $8 to come away with the same title again.
It is no surprise to see the Cats rounding out the odds for the market at $81 – and it is highly unlikely they will provide any punter a payout at that, however the table toppers are also topping the market for the side to score the highest result this weekend at $3.25 – clear favourites.
St Kilda are next in the odds at $6, while Carlton, who play Melbourne this round could also be a consideration as they are at $8 to secure the highest score.
Fremantle booted the highest score last weekend as they claimed 139 over North Melbourne, and head into the weekend at $10 to gain the title again this round.
A favourite with the punters, is the pick four winners market as it is the most challenging to get right, and therefore the most lucrative.
Sportsbet split the market up into Friday/Saturday matches, and Saturday/Sunday games.
Currently the safest bet for the first is the combination of a win for St Kilda, Carlton, Fremantle and the Brisbane Lions at $3.40.
However the biggest payout would be for a Richmond, Melbourne, Adelaide and North Melbourne win at $135.
Over the latter two days of footy, the safe bet is the combination of Geelong, Sydney, Hawthorn and Collingwood at $4.70, while the biggest odds are behind a West Coast Eagles, Sydney Swans, Port Adelaide and Western Bulldogs win.
