Following key suspensions and injury, the Bulldogs have gone from short priced favourites to certain outsiders against the Dragons this weekend as punters continue to abandon the under-siege club.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au opened the Dogs at $1.38 and the Dragons at $3.05, but with money running 12:1 in favour of St.George-Illawarra, the Red V have been backed into $1.80 favouritism. The Bulldogs have blown out to $2.00.
95% of money has gone on the Dragons in line betting as well, where they’re conceding 1.5 points start.
“This is the most one-sided betting game of the season so far. Since the suspensions of Graham, Klemmer and Kasiano, we’ve hardly taken a bet on the Bulldogs. Add to that the injury to Brett Morris and we expect even more money to come for the Dragons,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
The latest dramas have seen the Bulldogs drift from $7.00 out to $8.50 in premiership betting.
