Collingwood beating GWS secured their spot in a preliminary final clash against inner suburban arch rivals this Friday night.
Sportsbet is tipping the MCG will come close to its attendance record, the crowd size to be over 100,021 is a $4.00 chance.
The Pies head into the clash as the $3.00 outsiders, with Richmond firm favourites at $1.40 to make a back-to-back Grand Final appearance.
Melbourne getting the job done over Hawthorn sees Dees fans hurrying to buy flights over to Perth as they come up against the Eagles.
The Optus stadium to beat their crowd size record of 59,588 is a much likelier chance at $1.45, with the record only being set a fortnight ago in the Collingwood clash.
West Coast are the slight favourites at $1.80 to beat Melbourne ($2.05) in their home ground preliminary final.
“Two of the biggest teams come together at the biggest ground this Friday night so we’re tipping a record breaking crowd is more than a possibility. It’s the first time the sides have met in September in 38 years so fans will be flocking to watch the historic clash,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
“The Optus stadium couldn’t have asked for a better debut year, they’ll be opening their doors for the first time for a preliminary clash when the Eagles come up against the Dees which is bound to break the recent record.”
