Despite being outsiders in Round 1, the Western Bulldogs are priced as the $5 favourite with TAB to win the Premiership.
Punters agree the Dogs deserve to be favourites, with 28% of all money going on them. Brisbane Lions ($7) have been the next best backed with 20% of the money
Despite not having played a game yet in AFLW, North Melbourne look the most likely to record a round 1 win, priced at $1.44 to beat Carlton ($2.80)
“The Melbourne v Fremantle game has been the most popular to date with support coming for Fremantle despite being $2.55 underdogs. Overall the Western Bulldogs have been best backed to win the flag again despite losing some players in the off season,” said TAB’s Shaun Anderson.
