While the Grand Final is a stressful match, Sportsbet has decided to have some fun with the buildup, framing several novelty markets on the parade and Grand Final entertainment.

Thankfully, either Buddy or Hannebery crashing their car looks a long shot at $9.00 with both captain’s also tipped to hang onto the cup for dear life, priced at $13 for either of them to drop it.

With a heap of hits up his sleeve, what song will the legendary Tom Jones open with at the game? It won’t be anything out of the usual if he starts with It’s Not Unusual at $3.50 followed by Sexbomb at $4.00.

And no matter who you are cheering for in the match, everyone will be a winner in this market, with sportsbet pricing almost the shortest price possible of $1.01 that Meatloaf won’t make a surprise appearance.
“The cars in the parade will be travelling at about 5kms an hour, so if somehow Buddy or Hannebery manage to crash, they should have their licenses taken off them!” said’s Shaun Anderson.
