Tonight at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium, Carlton will play at home to the Brisbane Lions in the opening round 14 fixture of the 2010 AFL Season, and looks set to be another great bout of Aussie rules!
Once again, Ladbrokes.com.au has some extra markets on offer to keen punters of the sport, and if you want to read an overview of the weekend’s fixtures and to check out our ‘Tip Of The Week’, click here.
Looking set as the side to come out of the round with the lowest score is Melbourne at $3.50, most likely due to their opponents this weekend –St Kilda, who managed to hold the dominant Geelong side to a goalless second half.
The West Coast Eagles could perhaps be a more lucrative, yet still safe punt at $5 for the lowest score, as they have not been convincing lately and playing the Pies could be a contender.
Rounding out the odds for the market are Collingwood, Fremantle and Geelong all at $51, with the latter two playing Port Adelaide and North Melbourne respectively.
Therefore it is no surprise to see the same three teams topping the highest scoring market, with Collingwood at $4.50 edging out Freo and the Cats, equal in the odds at $5.
Last weekend’s highest scorers were Adelaide, booting 117 against Melbourne and are at $12 to emerge highest scorers once more.
Popular among punters who know their AFL is the pick four winners market, which is split into two at Sportsbet for this round – Thursday/Friday/Saturday and Saturday/Sunday.
The safest combination for the first three days’ games is Carlton, Western Bulldogs, Fremantle and Collingwood at $2.40, while the most rewarding is that of a Brisbane Lions, Hawthorn, Port Adelaide, and the West Coast Eagles win at $543.
Over the last two days’ fixtures this round, the safest combination is an Adelaide, Geelong, Sydney Swans and St Kilda win at $3.83, while a Essendon, North Melbourne, Richmond and Melbourne win is at $144.
