As usual Sportsbet has some exciting and rewarding specials markets on offer to punters looking to make some money from the thrilling action down on the ovals in round 17.
The action bounces off tonight at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium and presents a perfect fixture for punters to wager on as St Kilda Vs Hawthorn is a tough one to pick at Ladbrokes.com.au, for a full overview of all the matches for round 17 click here.
The Brisbane Lions are currently topping the odds as the side to emerge from the weekend with the lowest score at $5.
The lacklustre Queensland side face Geelong on Saturday and seeing as the Lions claimed the lowest score last round – just 43 against Hawthorn, could be a safe bet.
Richmond and Port Adelaide are also favourites among the punters at $6 and $7 respectively.
Backing the Tigers in this market is a considerable bet seeing as they have drawn the hugely in-form Collingwood, while the Power has a chance against the Crows and it is unlikely they will end the weekend with the lowest score.
Geelong are topping the odds for the team to kick the highest score this round at $2.75 with Ladbrokes.com.au despite being held by the Crows last round.
Dominating the head-to-head odds, the Cats will surely be out to rectify their humbling loss last weekend so could score big this round and pay well to the willing punter.
Closest in the odds are Collingwood at $3.75 and riding high on the wave of confidence could be another safe bet.
Shockingly the West Coast Eagles were last rounds highest scorers managing 132 against Essendon proving it is often worthwhile to go against the odds, and are at $18 for the same title this round as they come up against Carlton.
Collingwood’s Dane Swan is topping the market as the player to emerge from the weekend with the highest disposals to his name at $4, and after finishing on 36 last round could be a safe bet as the maestro hits the oval again.
Leigh Montagna, Matthew Boyd and Joel Selwood are all at $6 with Ladbrokes.com.au for the most disposals and finishing on 34, 35 and 35 respectively could certainly manage it.
Richmond star Jack Riewoldt and Geelong’s James Podsiadly are both at $4 to kick the most goals this round, interesting seeing as they scored three and none respectively last game – but will most likely return to form this weekend.
Mark LeCras could be a strong punt seeing as the Eagles midfielder booted an incredible 12 goals last round and is at $8 for this weekend.
One of the most profitable markets is the pick four winners and Sportsbet has split it into two markets – the Friday/Saturday games and the Saturday/Sunday matches.
The safest combination for the first market is that of a St Kida, Collingwood, Geelong and North Melbourne win at $3, but swapping St Kilda to Hawthorn brings it out to $3.60.
Over the second two days of the round a Carlton, Western Bulldogs, Sydney and Adelaide win is at $5.10, while changing Carlton to the West Coast changes it to $5.30.
Another possible combination is a Carlton, Western Bulldogs, Melbourne and Adelaide win at $7.45.
