West Coast continued their winning ways by notching up their ninth consecutive victory with a 15-point win against Hawthorn on Sunday.
The Eagles are $5.50 to win the flag and $1.08 for the top four. The Hawks have lost three in a row and have seen their Premiership odds tumble to $28. They are $2.60 outsiders to make the top eight and an unlikely top four finish is paying $11 at Sportsbet.
Richmond remain Premiership favourites after dispatching St Kilda by 28 points on Saturday. The Tigers are $4.25 to win the flag, but didn’t have it all their own way against the Saints, who led briefly in the third quarter.
St Kilda has managed only one win this season and are $3.50 in the least wins market behind Carlton.
Melbourne continued their impressive recent form, thumping Adelaide by 91 points in Alice Springs. The Demons are now into $7.50 for the flag, the shortest they have been all season.
The Demons dominated from the opening bounce and after recent wins against some of the competition’s lower placed teams, this was certainly a statement win.
They have shortened drastically in the top four market to $2 and are $1.08 to make finals as they sit third on the ladder.
It was a woeful day for the Crows, who saw their Premiership odds drift out to $11. They are now $2.50 to make the top four after being one of the shortest priced teams coming into the season.
North Melbourne continued their winning ways, becoming the first team other than Fremantle or West Coast to win at Optus Stadium.
The Roos kicked the last four goals of the game to run out 28 points winners. They are now $23 to win the flag and sit fifth on the ladder.
They are $1.62 to make the top eight, which is remarkable given many tipped North to finish in the bottom four.
The Dockers are $16 to play finals and their Premiership odds have drifted to $501 at Sportsbet.
Brisbane were unable to notch back-to-back wins going down by 18 points to Sydney in a dour affair at the Gabba.
The Swans led at every change and were never truly challenged during the match. The Swans are third favourites for the flag at $6.50 and $1.60 to finish in the top four.
The Lions are third in the least wins market at $4 behind the Saints and Blues.
Geelong booted the first four goals against Carlton at GMHBA Stadium on Saturday night in a ten minute outburst as it looked as though they were going to crush the Blues.
Carlton then controlled the majority of that contest until the closing stages, where the Cats pulled away for a 28-point win.
It was hardly a convincing display by the Cats, who sit sixth on the ladder. They are $11 to win the flag and $3.25 to finish in the top four.
The Blues remain on the bottom of the ladder with just one win for the season. They are favourites in the least wins market at $1.80.
Essendon continued to pile more pressure on the GWS Giants with a 35 point win at Spotless Stadium.
The Bombers led for the entire match and pulled away in the final quarter, as GWS’ season continues its downward spiral.
The Giants record of 4-6 has them as $41 flag fancies after being favourite earlier this season. They are now $5 to make the top eight.
After back-to-back wins, the Bombers are $7 to play finals and $51 to win the flag.
On Friday night, Collingwood scored eight unanswered goals in the second half to beat the Bulldogs by 35 points at Etihad Stadium.
The Dogs kicked five of the first six goals of the match, before Collingwood answered with a big run in the second half.
The Pies are $19 to win the flag and $4.50 to finish in the top four. The Dogs are big Premiership outsiders at $251 and unlikely to finish in the top eight at $26.
Gold Coast ($1001) and Port Adelaide ($11) both had a bye after their trip to Shanghai last weekend.
