Collingwood have always been the team people love to hate, and now punters are taking a dislike to them, with the Pies drifting from $23 to $51 to win the flag with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au
Their humiliating 64 point loss to Essendon has seen their price balloon from a near certain $1.30 to make the top 8, to $1.70.
The Bombers change in price has been just as dramatic but in a good way – Essendon are in from $101 to $51 to win the premiership, and $2.70 into $1.70 to play finals footy.
“The off-field dramas were supposed to be the end of the Bombers chances this season, but they’re peaking at the right time. The same thing can’t be said about Collingwood,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
