John Barker is a miracle worker – he actually coached Carlton to a win!
As a result of the Blues’ upset victory over Port Adelaide, interim coach Barker has firmed from $5.50 into $4.50 to become the next permanent Carlton coach.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au lists Stewart Dew as the favourite but he’s drifted from $3.25 out to $3.50.
Former Suns coach Guy Mckenna has also eased slightly ($7.00 out to $8.00) while Brendan Bolton and John Worsfold remain at $10.
“Punters have invested more money on Stewart Dew and John Worsfold to be the next permanent coach but since John Barker has taken the reins, he’s been easily the best backed contender,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
