Big Bet placed on Sydney Swans in 2016 AFL Grand Final

September 28, 2016

luke parkerOne punter at online bookmaker Sportsbet thinks the Swans are good things in the 2016 AFL Grand Final on Saturday, placing $375k on the Swans to win.

The Sportsbet punter stands to collect more than $600k if the Swans defeat the Bulldogs in the Grand Final.

The punter backed the Swans at $1.62 and stands to collect a total payout of $607,500 should they win on Saturday.

Sydney has firmed from $1.62 into $1.60 as a result, with the Western Bulldogs easing from $2.35 to $2.40.

The Sydney Swans have firmed into $1.60 to win Saturday’s AFL Grand Final after one Sportsbet punter staked $375,000 on a Swans victory.

The majority of bets continue to head to Bulldogs, with more than 65% of bets placed on the outsider.

However, more than three times the money is backing the Swans, with the biggest bet on the Bulldogs $4,000 at $2.35 compared to the Swan’s largest bet which is currently $375,000.

Bulldog Marcus Bontempelli remains the best-backed player for the 2016 Norm Smith Medal, but Sydney’s Luke Parker is closing.

More than 1,500 punters have already backed Bontempelli at $7.00, but Luke Parker $9.00 is close behind with 1,300 punters backing the Brownlow Medal runner-up so far.

“The majority of AFL fans are right behind the Bulldogs which is translating into plenty of $10, $20 and $50 bets, but the big money is all heading Sydney’s way,” said Sportsbet’s Ben Bulmer.

“One Sportsbet punter is supremely confident in the Swans ability to get the job done, staking a mammoth $375,000 which will deliver just over $600,000 should the Sydney-siders take the Premiership Cup home with them.”

The 2016 AFL Grand Final is on Saturday 1st October 2016 at the MCG in Melbourne.
