With either the finals or pride to play for this weekend there were few upsets, proving to the punter it often pays to go with the odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.
The opening game of the round proved Collingwood’s status as the team to beat this season as they demolished Essendon. The Pies went into the match at $1.11 for the win at Ladbrokes.com.au while the Bombers were at $6.70, and would have paid well to the punter who was extra confident they were going to win.
One upset over the weekend was Sydney ($2.38) beating Fremantle ($1.58) at the Subiaco Oval. The loss resulted in the Dockers losing their grip on the top four. It was a thrilling match which resulted in the Swans establishing themselves as potential home game finalists.
A game which was expected to be close was Saturday night’s blockbuster between the Western Bulldogs ($2.24) and Geelong ($1.66). The fixture turned out to be a one-way wonder as the Cats pulled out an emphatic display, beating the injured Bulldogs by 101 points.
A crucial game which helped establish positions in the middle of the ladder was Hawthorn’s ($1.67) collision with Melbourne ($2.20). The Hawks played determined footy to win by 21 points in a tough game and look set to play September football this year – the first time since 2008.
The penultimate round of the 2010 AFL Season – round 21 – will take to the ovals this Friday. Geelong will play Carlton at the Etihad Stadium for a thrilling opener in a crucial weekend for the top half of the ladder.
