It started with Carlton’s upset win over the unpredictable Kangaroos, but the standout was St Kilda’s huge upset against Fremantle that paid $16!
The three shortest legs, Geelong ($1.08 v GWS) and Port Adelaide ($1.07 v Melbourne) and Essendon ($1.37 v Bulldogs) all scraped home, leaving Hawthorn’s impressive victory over the Swans to complete the magnificent multi that was priced at odds of 1582/1!
“It was a brilliant mix of 3 favourites and 5 outsiders from our punter of the week. How on earth they put the Saints to beat Freo into an 8-leg multi is beyond me but they’re laughing all the way to the bank as a result,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
