The Bulldogs were the bookies’ friend last year when they came from nowhere to win the flag, but we’re prepared for them this time round at $5.50.
Punters are preferring other sides for the premiership but they’re probably still in shock from 2016.
With such a young and improving list, the Doggies should be able to push into the top four this year, but the $1.20 to make the Top eight is a given.
Travis Cloke is an interesting recruit. You’ll no doubt get rocks or diamonds but he’s been backed in from $67 to $26 to win the Coleman Medal.
Hawthorn has proven you can go back to back so the Doggies are a definite flag contender in 2017.
Odds taken from Sportsbet.com.au:
To make Top 8: $1.20
Wooden Spoon: $251
Over/Under wins: 14.5
Projected finish: 3rd
