Sydney have still easily been the best backed team with three times the money being bet on them this week, but the last 24 hours has seen interest come for Hawthorn.

“It has been all one way traffic all week on the Swans. But there is starting to be a move towards the Hawks, with punters obviously thinking the $2.40 is pretty good odds for a team that was favourites for most of the year,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.

In Norm Smith betting Daniel Hannebery has caught the eye of punters and is in from $12 to $11. Luke Parker and Buddy Franklin remain the best backed at $8.00 and are joined by Josh Kennedy as the favourites. Hawthorn’s old timers Sam Mitchell and Luke Hodge are yet to get much attention, with Mitchell out from $9.00 to $11 and Hodge out from $11 to $14.

Having opened a ‘Traitors v Traditionalists’ market for whether a one club player or a two or more club player would win the best on ground award, punters think it will be someone like Buddy or Kennedy who wins, with the traitors the best backed.

Punters will also have a chance to bet on how Cyril Rioli will go, with the forward priced at $1.90 to get under 14.5 possessions.
