West Coast Eagles are short priced favourites to bury a woeful away record against Port Adelaide on Saturday.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has the Eagles at $1.30 to win their Adelaide Oval match against Power ($3.50).
However, early indications are that punters believe their poor away form will continue, with Port holding five times more money.
The Eagles, who are $7.00 to win the Flag, had their last win away in round 16 last year, when they beat Collingwood.
This season they have lost their three away matches against the Hawks, Swans and Geelong.
“Statistics don’t lie. The Eagles have a real monkey on their back and punters think it will still be there after their visit to Adelaide Oval,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
