AFL Finals Week One Betting Review

PUNTER’S PAL

Richmond is the premiership favouites and was the banker for many in the first week of AFL finals.

The Tigers were heavily backed, with much of the money on them to cover a skinny 5.5 point line, which they did with ease.

BOOKIE’S BEST

The Magpies were the darling of punters early in the season but, as the finals got underway, they were the friend of bookmarkers.

The Magpies weren’t overly well fancies despite Geelong’s poor record off a bye.

FIRST GOAL FRUSTRATION

After three games, the average first goal kicker price was $34 and the bookmakers were well on top but they bounced back with vengeance when Jack Riewoldt, who’d been backed for plenty, nailed the opener in the Tigers Lions clash at the Gabba.

LEGENDARY LAND

Punters largely nailed the opening week but one punter in particular put his money where his thoughts were and threw in the Melbourne Storm for good measure.

The five leg multi of West Coast/Collingwood/Giants/Richmond/Storm paid $11.53 and his $300 wager returned $3459.

BACKING THE FUTURE

Just six teams remain the hunt and the Tigers are still the one punters want but the grand final quinella of Richmond and Collingwood has been hammered in the past few days with both already through to the preliminary final.
