The Magpies & Suns can start planning their footy trips according to the betting with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

With both teams suffering upset losses over the weekend, they are now outsiders to make the 8, with Collingwood drifting from $1.70 to $2.35 and Gold Coast out from $2.55 to $6.00.

Collingwood’s loss yesterday would have been particularly hard to take for one punter, who has bet $20,000 on the Pies to make the finals, while another will also be keeping an eye on the rest of their season, betting $10,000 that they will be there in September.

To make things even worse for Pies fans, they were as short as $1.05 to make the finals in early June, while the Suns were $1.25 prior to Gary Ablett’s injury.

In other AFL betting news:

  • Any draws?: It’s been ages since we had a season without a draw, but it looks likely to happen this year, with $1.40 priced that there won’t be a drawn game and $2.75 there will be.
  • Swans still favourites: Sydney are still flag favourites but have drifted from $2.75 to $3.00. Hawthorn have firmed from $4.00 into $3.50.
  • Ablett still a Brownlow chance: He hasn’t played in weeks but Gary Ablett has firmed from $8.00 into $6.00 to win the Brownlow with the likes of Scott Pendlebury and Josh Kennedy having quiet weekends.

“Only a month ago both Collingwood and Gold Coast looked like sure things to make the 8 and punters jumped on. But after the weekend they have made it pretty hard for themselves, particularly Gold Coast who have drifted from $2.25 to $6.00 in only a few weeks,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
