Punters backing a huge upset in the AFL this weekend
The most backed footy team this round is not one you’d expect
As we approach the business end of the season, the pressure turns up another notch as the fight for a finals place begins to get interesting. We reported earlier in the week that bettors were getting carried away with Collingwood’s chances of landing the flag, following a thumping win in Adelaide. However, bettors are putting their money on a speedy turn around for the Crows.
Adelaide Crows travel to the Mars Stadium to take on the Western Bulldog, in a match that could be pivotal in the race for a top eight spot. The Crows are in poor form, but that hasn’t stopped bettors getting stuck into their $3.45 price tag. Adelaide have been the most backed team of the week by quite a distance.
Australian bettors are also expecting Collingwood to carry on their run of good form and run riot against Essendon, the Pies are $1.35 to score another win on Friday.
If you were looking for a little multi for the weekend made up of the most backed teams, then slip West Coast into the mix. The Eagles are $1.25 to beat Hawthorn. The multi pays $5.68 best odds, compared to $4.88 elsewhere.
