A rumoured clause in Mick Potter’s contract means he’ll be given a new deal if the Tigers make the finals this season, but online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au doesn’t like the coach’s chances, pricing the Tigers at $1.24 to miss the top 8 when markets resume at the conclusion of round 20.
Following yesterday’s 28-12 loss to the Dragons, the Tigers have blown out from $2.50 to $4.00 to play finals football and save their coach in the process.
“Wests are only one win outside of the top 4, but a tough draw and a poor for and against will make it tough for Potter to steer his side into the finals and keep his job,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
