Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has for the first time moved Patrick Dangerfield into odds-on for the Brownlow Medal.

  • Dangerfield firms from $2.00 into $1.80 Brownlow favourite
  • Top 5 in market all shorten after weekend

The Cats star has firmed from $2.00 into $1.80 after starring up forward against Hawthorn, despite being hampered by an ankle problem.

Dustin Martin has gone from $2.75 into $2.50 following the Tigers’ victory over Brisbane yesterday.

Tom Mitchell’s 43 disposals saw him go from $18 into $11, while Josh Kelly ($18 into $15) and Zach Merrett ($21 into $18) also fared well in round 17.

“If Dangerfield can boot 5 goals 6 on one leg, he has to be an odds-on favourite to win another Brownlow. Tom Mitchell is the fairytale story though, having firmed from as much as $101 earlier in the season,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
