Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au believes the Sydney Swans will be more accurate in front of goal under the tutelage of club great Tony Lockett, who’s signed on as a coach of the forward line.
· Swans goalkicking accuracy $1.66 to improve in 2017
· Lance Franklin $2.50 to kick more goals than last year’s 82
The Swans are priced at $1.66 to improve on the 55.46% accuracy they achieved in 2016.
Lance Franklin stands to be the biggest beneficiary from Plugger’s advice, and is a $2.50 chance to kick more than the 82 goals he booted last year.
The entire team is $4.50 to kick more goals in 2017 (377), while Buddy is a $7.00 prospect to do what Lockett did six times – break the 100 goals in a season barrier.
“Plugger looks fit enough to slot straight back into the Swans forward fifty but his presence alone at training should bring out the best in the likes of Buddy, Tippett and Reid this season,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
