After getting out to as much as $52 to win the premiership, Adelaide has rocketed into the third line of betting at $5.50 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
- Crows firm from $52 into $5.50 for flag
- One punter placed $5,000 on Adelaide at $23 to collect $115,000
- Only Hawthorn and Sydney have been more popular in premiership betting
One punter with foresight placed a $5,000 bet on them to win the flag at $23 for a potential collect of $115,000 while 6 punters had $50 on the Crows at odds of $51.
Adelaide opened as a $34 chance but got out to $52 after losing their round one clash with North Melbourne….now they find themselves as a genuine premiership threat at $5.50 behind only Hawthorn ($4.50) and Sydney ($5.00).
The Crows are priced at $1.25 to make the all-important Top 4 and $4.00 to clinch the minor premiership.
“An Adelaide premiership will be a bad result for us with a lot of punters predicting their charge up the ladder early on. We’ve taken more money on the Crows over the past few weeks than any other side,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
