Looking set to emerge from the weekend as the side to have scored the least is Adelaide at $6, despite their impressive performance last weekend over Freo, they are away to Hawthorn this weekend – although it is doubtful they will score the lowest.
Melbourne are close behind in the odds at $7 – and are possibly a more lucrative punt as they face the dominant Collingwood.
Round 11’s lowest scorers were Richmond, and they have long odds of $15 to claim the same title this weekend as they come up against the West Coast Eagles.
Rounding out the market is Geelong at $71 – and as they face Essendon, it is no surprise to see them topping the odds for the team to emerge with the highest score for the round at $3.25.
The Cats have been fantastic this season, consistently scoring high – and claimed the title of highest scorer’s last round when they booted 122 against the Eagles.
The Pies are next in the odds at $4.75 to secure the highest score this weekend, while Carton are close behind at $5 as they face North Melbourne.
Heading into the weekend as the favourite to emerge as the highest goal kicker for round 12 is Hawthorn’s Lance Franklin, who returns to the side for the clash against Adelaide, and is at $4.50.
Brisbane Lions’ Brendan Fevola could be a safe bet with his nifty footwork in the past few weeks and is close in the odds at $5.
Favourite to claim the most disposals for the round is the constant force of Gary Ablett at $3 – while the Cats legend is constantly up there with the number of disposals he is not always the highest.
A strong punt could be for Dane Swan for the Pies who goes into the round at $8.
One of the most lucrative markets is the pick four winners, and over the long weekend, Sportsbet have split it up into Friday/Saturday fixtures and Sunday/Monday fixtures.
The safest combination in the first market is that of a Carlton, Hawthorn, Geelong and Port Adelaide win at $4.10 – while changing Port Adelaide for the Sydney Swans is at $4.10.
The most lucrative bet for the first two days of the weekend is a North Melbourne, Adelaide, Essendon and Sydney Swans win at $100.
Over the second two days of the weekend, the safest bet is a West Coast Eagles, Western Bulldogs, Fremantle and Collingwood win at $4.50, while a West Coast Eagles, Brisbane Lions, St Kilda and Melbourne win is at $76 – equal to a Richmond, Brisbane Lions, St Kilda and Melbourne win.
