With Hawthorn and Sydney knocked out, Collingwood have emerged as the new favourites to win the NAB Cup, coming in from $5.50 to $4.50 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Carlton have also been big movers, in from $11 to $5.00 along with North Melbourne in from $13 to $6.00.
At least one punter will be keeping an eye on the Brisbane Lions after placing a bet of $100 at $51 when the market first opened for a collect of over $5,000. They are now on the third line of betting at $7.00.
GWS still remain massive outsiders at $81, but have been the biggest movers of all, in from $501.
“With the Swans and Hawks gone, punters have turned to the Magpies and they are now the best backed team. The smart money has been on the Lions with punters jumping on their big early odds,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
