West Coast have been the big movers in the off-season, having firmed from as much as $15. Signing Sam Mitchell is bound to do that I suppose.
That’s offset somewhat by the loss of Nic Naitinui, so Scott Lycett may well be the most important player for the Eagles this season.
If he measures up, West Coast are deservedly flag contenders, if not you might just want to take the $1.40 for them to make the eight.
One thing the Eagles could well win is the Coleman Medal, with Josh Kennedy a deserved $3.25 favourite in a field that certainly has plenty of depth in 2017.
Odds taken from Sportsbet.com.au:
To make Top 8: $1.40
Wooden Spoon: $101
Over/Under wins: 13.5
Projected finish: 4th
