Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has opened a betting market on who will replace Garry Lyon on Footy Classified following the announcement that he is joining Fox Footy.
The bookie has installed Damien Barrett, who has regularly filled in for Lyon over the years, as the $4.00 favourite.
Chris Judd is a regular guest on the show, but an outsider at $21 to make it a full-time gig.
Others in the running to join the panel include Wayne Carey at $7.00 and James Brayshaw at $12.
“It’s been a year of presenters jumping ships to other networks, so we’re not even surprised! There will be big shoes to fill with the departure of Garry Lyon, but we’re tipping Damien Barrett could scoop the pool,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
