Over time, money came for Brad Scott ($51 into $1.60) and Ken Hinkley ($34 into $2.50), but both ended up ruling themselves out of the running for the Gold Coast Suns coaching job.
Now it looks like a race in two between John Barker and Stewart Dew according to the market with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Barker is the $1.60 favourite after opening at $11, while Dew is a $3.25 chance after coming in from as much as $11 as well. Nearly twice as much money has been bet on Barker compared to Dew.
Adam Kingsley has been the other major firmer at $6.00, but punters aren’t interested.
“If you believed the money trail, both Brad Scott and Ken Hinkley had the Suns job at certain points, but it now looks like John Barker and Stewart Dew will battle it out,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
