Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has been inundated with money for GWS to win its first AFL premiership including a $10,000 bet at odds of $4.50.
- $10,000 bet taken on GWS to win flag at $4.50
- Giants easily the best backed team
- Bulldogs friendless in bid to go back-to-back
22% of all money wagered on this year’s premiership has gone on GWS, and there are twice as many dollars on the Giants compared to the second most popular club – Sydney.
There’s no such love for the Western Bulldogs ($5.50), who are only the ninth best backed side to defend their flag. Even Essendon ($23) and Collingwood ($34) have attracted more bets.
“GWS is the standout as far as pre-season betting is concerned and if punters are on the money, we’ll be seeing the first ever all-Sydney Grand Final,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
