Many Sportsbet punters believe Richmond is set for back-to-back AFL Premierships, with the Tigers hit with a $30,000 wager and a groundswell of support.
The Tigers opened the season at $11.50 and they are now $2.35 favourites and hold seven-times the money than second favourite West Coast.
The Eagles have been the surprise packets with their opening quote of $41 and are now second favourite at $7.00.
Of the top eight teams the two outsiders, Sydney ($16) and GWS ($18), were the top two picks at the start of the season on $4.50 and $4.90 respectively.
“Money just keeps coming for Richmond and punters are backing them like there is no danger. They’ve been playing some great footy and have a 21-game winning streak at the MCG, which is a great sign for the finals,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
