One Sportsbet punter is so confident that Richmond have the flag in the bag that they’ve placed $147,000 on them to win the Grand Final at various odds.
To get there, the Tigers first have to beat Collingwood, they’re a short $1.38 to do so and over 77% of the money in the market is backing that outcome.
Collingwood are a $3.15 chance for tomorrow night’s blockbuster, with the biggest wager at $10,000.
The Richmond v Collingwood game has attracted much more attention from punters, with the money staked on Richmond nearly double that staked on the whole Eagles v Melbourne game.
West Coast are the $1.80 favourites but the punters are divided, the Eagles have attracted just over half the money in the market and Melbourne has attracted more individual bets at $2.05.
“Punters have been waiting nearly 40 years for Richmond to come head-to-head against their inner suburban rivals Collingwood in a final and they’re jumping on board the opportunity,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
