Online bookmaker is basically giving away free money. Punters know that Dustin Martin will bag the Brownlow tonight, one in particular, placing a huge $85,000 bet on the Tigers star at $1.05.

Over 40% of all money has been on Martin. After getting out to as much as $10, he’s shortened into $1.05.

The short price hasn’t been enough to deter punters, with other big bets of $19,600 and $15,000 coming in for him at $1.05 and a $14,500 bet at $1.20.

Martin is holding six times the money compared to second best backed Tom Mitchell ($12).

The worst result for the bookies would be Adelaide’s Matt Crouch who is currently paying $41. Sportsbet will fork out over $2.2million to punters if he wins.

“Punters are so sure that Dusty will bag the Brownlow that they’re getting creative with our BYO Brownlow Market instead. There’s $9.00 on offer for Dusty to get more votes than the whole Gold Coast team combined,’’ said’s Christian Jantzen.
