Punters are losing faith in Port Adelaide and Adelaide in their droves, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reporting that punters would prefer to bet on Darren Jarman making a comeback than back either team to win this weekend!
Struggling to get out of their form slump, the Power are friendless at $2.85 against the Swans ($1.43), with more than five times the money bet on Sydney despite the match being played at Adelaide Oval.
It’s a similar story for the Crows despite being $1.55 favourites against Brisbane ($2.50), with this match clearly the least bet on game of the round so far.
“A few weeks ago Port looked like real flag contenders and the Crows seemed good things to make the 8 until they blew it against West Coast. Now it’s tough to figure out who is more gun shy, Port, the Crows or our punters!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
