Collingwood’s shock defeat of Richmond in tonight’s preliminary final has seen their odds to win the flag with Sportsbet dramatically firm from $5.50 into favouritism at $1.72.
The punters didn’t see the Pies win coming, Richmond attracted nearly three times the amount of money and double the number of individual bets.
“Richmond have been the favourites all year so to see them pipped at the post came as a shock to many. Collingwood were on fire tonight so they’re now the favourites for the flag,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
