Is the Brownlow betting market down to two after 11 rounds?

AFL Market Movers 2017
ONLINE bookmaker has separated Geelong superstar Patrick Dangerfield and Richmond gun Dustin Martin from the rest of the pack in Brownlow Medal betting after the pair put together stellar round 11 performances.

Dangerfield ($3.25) amassed 31 touches and booted three goals against the Crows on Friday night while Martin ($3.75) gathered 38 possessions and kicked two majors on Saturday night to break a long-time losing streak against the Kangaroos.

Adelaide on-baller Rory Sloane is the next best in the market at $8.

Martin’s brilliant performance against the Roos surged him into outright second in Brownlow Medal betting, and Richmond coach Damian Hardwick was glowing of his out of contract midfielder in the aftermath of the match.

“It was a pretty impressive game,” Hardwick said.

“Dustin has had a wonderful season thus far.”

Although all the focus has been on Martin and Dangerfield, GWS on-baller Josh Kelly has rocketed up the betting market.

The former number two draft pick is on the fourth line of betting at the $12 quote via after starting in the season in triple figures.

The Giants midfielder was prolific in his side’s win over Essendon, gathering a career-high 38 touches.

In a game that is certain to earn Kelly three votes from the umpires, Essendon coach John Worsfold said there was never a discussion to send a negating player to the 22-year-old despite his dominant match.

“At half-time, we addressed the volume of his possession, but it was a pretty even game,” Worsfold said.

“We tried to get a little bit tighter on him in the second half but still wanted to generate our ball getting forward.

“He’s a very good player (but) we weren’t prepared to just put a straight stopper on him.”

Magpies’ finals odds slashed after stirring win in the west

Collingwood has made a significant impact in the finals betting market at following their magnificent 20-point win over the Dockers on Sunday.

The Magpies – who were at $6.50 just three weeks ago – are currently on the seventh line of finals betting at the $3 quote.

At multiple times throughout the match it seemed the Magpies would get overrun by the Dockers after losing Daniel Wells and Jamie Elliot to injury but Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley said the win was testament to the mental fortitude of his team.

“The story tonight is just the guts of the group. With due respect to the guys that might be touch and go next week, it’s not going to concern us when we bring that sort of collective effort,” Buckley said.

“We share the load. It’s a squad mentality in the way we go about it and it’s going to be different blokes’ turn at different times.”

Despite their strong recent form, Collingwood will go into Monday’s Queen’s Birthday clash against Melbourne as the $2.35 outsiders at to keep their winning run intact.
