Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has the GWS Giants as equal $3.00 favourites with Geelong to win this year’s AFL premiership, but with such a young, talented list, this could just be the start of something special.
The Giants are priced at $8.00 to win this year’s and next year’s flags, $21 to win the next 3 grand finals and a whopping $51 to do what Hawthorn couldn’t and win 4 premierships on the trot.
For that to happen, the first small step is beating the Western Bulldogs in Saturday’s preliminary final, where they’re the $1.50 favourites.
Punters have their doubts though, with 15% more money bet on the Doggies to cause another upset.
“The first one was always going to be the toughest but if this young GWS list can sneak away with this year’s premiership, who knows what sort of a dynasty is possible,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
