Buddy Franklin now looks likely to bounce back from injury against the Hawks but punters with online bookmaker sportsbet have really sharpened their knives!
Special Offer: $400 AFL ROUND 8 FREE BET
Over 70% of the money wagered has gone on Franklin kicking more behinds than goals against the Hawks and the price has since moved from $3.50 into $3.25, whilst the opposite scenario for more goals than behinds drifts from $1.75 out to $1.80.
But if that isn’t surprising enough, Sportsbet are also reporting that a massive 85% of money has gone on the former Hawks favourite not scoring a goal at all, seeing the price shorten from $5.00 in to $4.00.
In head to head betting, Hawthorn have attracted a huge 89% of total money wagered, priced at $1.45, with the Swans paying $2.75.
“Do punters forgive and forget? Not judging by our markets. They clearly want Buddy to crash and burn at his reunion,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
