Neil Craig has bolted into betting consideration to be the next Western Bulldogs coach, firming from $41 into $2.75 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au this morning.
Luke Beveridge remains the favourite at $1.45, while former favourite Brett Montgomery has taken a bigger dive than Lindsay Thomas, out from $2.75 to $9.00.
Leigh Tudor is the only other candidate to firm in betting, in from $21 to $18.
“It looked to be a two horse race, but the betting suggests that Neil Craig is a genuine chance despite the fact Luke Beveridge is still the clear favourite,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
