The Sportsbet traders are obviously expecting a sharp improvement from Fremantle’s six wins in 2016 because we’ve set the line for over or under wins at 11.5.
The Dockers have been the best-backed side to win the flag as strange as that sounds. One customer is so bullish about their chances, they’ve staked $20,000 on them at $21 for a potential collect of $210,000.
The big question mark is how will Fremantle go without their club legend, Matthew Pavlich? They’ve also lost Mayne, Barlow, Pearce and Mzungu amongst others.
Odds taken from Sportsbet.com.au:
To make Top 8: $2.50
Wooden Spoon: $21
Over/Under wins: 11.5
Projected finish: 10th
