Yes, we know it is only a NAB Challenge match, but Mitch Clark’s impressive debut for the Cats has gained the attention of punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
It will break the hearts of Melbourne fans, but a remarkable comeback looks on the cards, with the forward firming from $51 to $41 to win the Coleman Medal today.
Such has been the support for Clark that he has been better backed than some of the game’s best forwards including Jack Riewoldt, Jay Schulz and Jarryd Roughead.
“As if Melbourne fans didn’t already have enough to be upset about, it looks like Clark will be a key player this year. Punters are on board and he has been one of the best backed to win the Coleman which is pretty incredible given he hasn’t played for two years,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
