Currently priced at $2.40 to win its first Premiership since 1954, around 67% of punters are backing the Western Bulldogs at online bookmaker Sportsbet to get the job done.

The Sydney Swans are $1.58 to win the Grand Final.

The Bulldogs were as long as $67 to win the flag at the start of the finals series, with one punter set to collect $10,050 after betting $150 at that price.

Another punter stands to win $17,000 if the Bulldogs win after placing a $500 bet at odds of $34 in mid-August.

“It’s not just most of Victoria who is behind the Western Bulldogs, but the majority of punters as well with two in three bets predicting an upset on Saturday,” said Sportsbet’s Ben Bulmer.

“Punters are also expecting to see changes at the selection table, with Lin Jong and Ted Richards both well backed in Norm Smith betting despite neither having secured their place in their respective sides 22.”
