We’re in the middle of ‘bye season’ for both codes, so our footy betting market review comes with a little bit of an asterisks this week.
Check out the movers and shakers for this week.
We have something of a split ladder at the moment in the AFL – we’re in the middle of the mid-season byes, so a handful of clubs have a game in hand (they’re highlighted in red on the graphic).
With that taken into account, there’s not a great deal of movement this week on the ladder. Teams at the top of the ladder have cemented their positions, though Fremantle are a good chance to leapfrog into second if they can record a good result at home against Port Adelaide.
At the other end, things just keep going horribly for Melbourne, who aren’t showing any sign of recovery. Even with a game in hand over their rivals at the bottom, they’re still stuck at the foot of the ladder after yet another lacklustre display. The market gave them a 15.5 head start on Collingwood… only for them to be rolled by 41. They’re still being overestimated, so it’ll be interesting to see if the market gets tougher on them at any point.
The Raiders and Eagles continue to lead the way at the top, while the Knights’ impressive victory over the Rabbitohs this week has them gaining ground quickly.
Newcastle now boasts the best +/- against the line in the comp, indicating just how big their turnaround in form has been.
At the other end, the Bulldogs and Panthers have the worst +/- but it’s the Dragons who sit last with just 4 covers from 12 games.
Interestingly enough, the Roosters (-2.5), Cowboys (-17) and Tigers (-24.5) sit 4th, 5th and 6th on our ladder respectively, showing they have all been prone to under-perform badly according to the market at times.
