As a non football punter, is the cover the line poll on every round? if so has anyone studied the results where the consensus is more than a certain amount (say 6 to 10) cos just looking at the results for this round you could make a tidy profit if it stands up every week.
Those odds for North are a joke. We are a rabble and Brisbane just knocked off the reigning premiers. Fagan will do exactly what Lyon did: choke the North back six and make it impossible for our inexperienced (and bog ordinary) back half to get the ball out of there. A high press with pressure on the ball carrier will be the go.
What are North going to do? Send Brown and Goldstein to opposite flanks to act as get-out marking options? Good luck with that.
And St Kilda look juicy. Very juicy indeed. I'll put my money on the Bombers when they are underdogs. Until then I like the look of whoever their opponent is.
The Gold Coast also look alright at 4s. Although I do believe Fremantle are better than people are giving them credit for.
