The trade period is over and we can all catch our breath, but will any of the new recruits live up to their new club’s expectations next year?
Punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au who think new Bulldog Tom Boyd is worth every cent of his million dollar contract can clean up, with $6.00 offered for the forward to be the Doggies leading goalscorer in 2015.
Big boys Mitch Clark and Paddy Ryder also look likely to repay the faith of the Cats and Power, with Clark good odds at $5.00 to kick the most goals for the Cats and Ryder $7.00 to make the All Australian team.
And while the Roos may have recruited for a finals tilt, it looks unlikely to pay off, with $101 priced for either Shaun Higgins or Jarrad Waite to win the Norm Smith medal.
“Whether these trades are a bust or boom remains to be seem. Maybe the Bulldogs want to have a bit of money on Boyd to kick the most goals to get the cash back they will have to pay for his salary!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
