Yet another ‘honourable’ loss for the Blues, while the Melbourne Storm put Parra to the sword. We take a look at how the footy betting market performed this weekend.
Geelong failed to cover the line for just the second time this season, falling short by the barest of margins against North Melbourne… 0.5 points! This means Carlton and Geelong are now level on top of the line ladder with six covers each: remarkably, they’re first and last respectively on the league ladder.
Carlton yet again did the business for their backers against one of the flag favourites in Collingwood, and were even in line for the win before a late flurry of goals from the Pies. It was a remarkable turnaround from a truly horrendous performance against North Melbourne just six days earlier.
Upset of the week was undoubtedly Hawthorn over GWS, with the Hawks given a 6.5 point head-start over the Giants… only to go and win by 33 points anyway.
The Melbourne Storm blew the Eels out of the water in the story of the round (as far as betting markets were concerned anyway!) to give their +/- a big boost.
Remarkably, the Storm have only covered the line in 4 of their 9 games to sit outside the top 8 in the market ladder despite sitting 3rd in the competition – much like the Rabbitohs in 7th and 2nd, respectively.
At the other end, the Panthers continue to be the enemy of punters and now have a differential of -85 against the betting market.
The Bulldogs and Warriors are out-performing the market when compared to their actual win-loss record, combining for a 9-9 record against the spread this season.
