The rules of contact, flirting with free agency and even the restricted interchange, it’s a bit like the world of dating, which has been thrown into chaos thanks to the arrival of the popular app, Tinder.
So to have a bit of fun, the office at online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has had a go at tipping what every club’s Tinder profile would look like.
Now that we have that silliness out of the way, in actual betting movements:
Sydney v Hawthorn: The Swans have shortened from $2.90 to $2.75 on the back of the news that Buddy
is playing, but punters don’t care, with the Hawks the best backed team of the week.
Port Adelaide v Fremantle: All the money is for Port in this one who have firmed from $1.58 to $1.52.
Brisbane v Essendon: Punters could care less about this game, with virtually no money bet on either
team. Given their recent results, you can’t really blame them for staying away.
Melbourne v Western Bulldogs: The money is now even in this one, with the Demons attracting plenty
of interest at $2.95.
West Coast v GWS: Punters aren’t giving GWS ($7.60 out to $10) much of a chance in this one, with
the Eagles clear $1.07 favourites.
St Kilda v Calton: St Kilda have been identified as value in this one at $3.40, with the money coming
in seven to one in their favour.
