Sportsbet have opened betting on whether Joffa, the leader of the Collingwood cheer squad, will put on his infamous gold jacket during today’s Grand Final.
He’s considered a $1.68 chance to do so, the same odds that Collingwood are to win the flag.
The bookie is tipping that the game could attract international attention, with $46 on offer for Donald Trump to tweet about Collingwood’s forward ruckman Mason Cox.
The Eagles are slight outsiders at $2.25 but they’ve been the best supported by punters, attracting over 70% of the total money on the market.
West Coast fans are notoriously boisterous and it’s $1.05 chance that their boos will be audible on TV coverage later today.
“We’re sure Joffa is itching to put on his gold jacket on the biggest stage of them all but punters don’t think it’s going to happen. They’ve been getting around the underdog in a big way and are tipping the Eagles take flight and snag the flag,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
