Two former fan favourites will go toe to toe against their former clubs this weekend, but will Paul Chapman and Dale Thomas have the last laugh against their old teammates?
It looks a good chance according to markets by online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au, opening several markets for how Chappy and Daisy will go against the Cats and Pies.
First of all, Daisy looks likely to at least do better than the last time he went up against the Black and White army, priced at $1.10 to get more than 13 touches. If he has another stinker and can’t better his last effort, punters can jump on at $6.00.
Chappy will also haunt the Cats for letting him go, with a $1.87 line set for him to get above or below 19.5 touches. He will hit the scoreboard at least once, priced at $1.40 to kick over 0.5 goals.
He also looks the most likely to win the battle of the former stars, priced at $1.65 to get more disposals than Daisy ($2.15).
“Both Chappy and Daisy were much loved by their supporters, but according to the betting, the cheering could turn to heckling with both players tipped to have a good one against their former teams,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
