Punters are tipping Trent Cotchin won’t kick into a 9 goal wind this Thursday night, with more than double the money coming for Richmond with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au compared to Carlton.
Up until this week, Carlton had been well backed to win the season opener however the last 48 hours has seen a massive shift to Richmond, with 65% of all the money bet on the match going on the Tigers at $1.54, with punters ignoring the $2.50 for Carlton.
“Whether Trent Cotchin decides to kick with against the wind, punters don’t seem to care and have declared Thursday night will be Tiger Time!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
In other Round 1 betting, Essendon will face an uphill battle to secure an early 4 points, the $3.40 outsiders against Sydney ($1.32).
