Sportsbet has some great specials markets which punters should not miss out on!
Port Adelaide is currently topping the odds as the team favourite to emerge the weekend with the lowest score, and up against the Bulldogs could be a good bet at $6.50.
Adelaide and the Brisbane Lions are two more contenders playing Geelong and Hawthorn respectively, and with both sides at $7.50, the Lions are more likely to be restricted with the Crows finding some reasonable form of late.
Last week’s lowest scorers were North Melbourne, who scored 55 points against the Swans, and are at $13 to gain the same title in round 16, although could be a wasted bet seeing as they have a crunch match with the Tigers.
Fremantle and the Western Bulldogs are both rounding out the odds at $41, and up against Melbourne and Port respectively, would be huge upsets if they were to be held to the lowest scores of the round.
Therefore it is no surprise to see them leading the odds as the team to score the highest this weekend, with the Dogs slightly ahead at $4.75 and Freo at $5.
Essendon are also up there, and with the Bombers playing the West Coast which are currently sitting at the bottom of the ladder, their $6.50 odds could be a worthwhile punt.
Jack Riewoldt, currently on his career-topping form booting five goals last round, is favourite to emerge from the weekend as the highest goal kicker at $5.
The forward is unstoppable when the pressure is on, and with a pivotal match with the Roos on Sunday, could certainly see your dollar go far.
The Lions’ Brendon Fevola is at $6.50, although could be a lost-cause seeing as he has only shown glimpses in the past couple of rounds of his former goal-kicking self, while Matthew Pavlich is at $7.50.
Gary Ablett, the Cats’ star man finished last weekend on 32 disposals, and the instrumental midfielder is at $4.50 to top the stats again against the Crows.
Dane Swan is at $7, while Leigh Montagna and Matthew Boyd are both at $9 to claim the prestigious title.
One market all AFL fans and punters love due to its trickiness is the pick four winners markets, and at Ladbrokes.com.au the market is split into two, one covering the Friday/Saturday games, and one for the Saturday/Sunday fixtures.
The safest combination of winners over the first two days is that of a Geelong, St Kilda, Hawthorn and Essendon win at $4.17, but switch the Saints for Collingwood and it becomes $5.15 – that match is the decider.
The best bet over the latter two days of fixtures is a Western Bulldogs, Carlton, Richmond and Fremantle triumph at $4.33, while switching the Tigers for North Melbourne sees it out to $4.68.
For those with an extra dollar and unable to choose where to place it, why not have a cheeky go at Western Bulldogs, Sydney, North Melbourne and Melbourne winning at $24.70, as it could certainly happen and the odds are definitely worthwhile!
