Sportsbet have released the odds of the two sides heading into the Battle of the Battlers clash this Sunday.
The city side, the Nunawading Lions, are the $1.33 favourites to come out of the clash victorious, ending their 1165 day drought whilst snagging a much needed $10,000 in prize money.
Speaking about the match, Nunawading’s coach Paul Beven said “I have to be realistic, but the positives always outweigh the negatives with this team. Last year our losing average was 254 points, we’ve more than halved that and got it down to 117 this season and we’ve lost six games under 100 points.”
The Ardmona Cats from Central Victoria are the $3.25 underdogs heading into the clash.
Ardmona are currently sitting at a percentage of 1.97% having only scored 98 points this year but conceding 4983 against.
“Ardmona is coming into the underdog clash as the underdog – but they’ll certainly have the crowd behind them cheering them on to end their 1137 day winless drought. Whichever way the result goes, it’ll be a win-win for everyone involved with hundreds of supporters expected to come down to cheer on the sides,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
