They’re notoriously difficult matches to predict but punters seem confident of an Australian victory in Friday’s International Rules match against Ireland.
Call it patriotic money if you will, but online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has received ten times the investment on the Aussies in comparison to the Irish for the one-off test in Perth this weekend.
The Australians drifted to as much as $2.00 at one stage, but a stack of money has seen them come in to $1.50 favouritism against Ireland, who’ve drifted to $2.55.
“You just never know which team will turn up in these International Rules fixtures, but despite Ireland’s big warm-up win over a VFL squad, punters only want to back Australia,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
