Money pours in for Hawks – $100,000 bet on Hawks to beat Crows


A Sportingbet Australia punter has plonked $100,000 on Hawthorn at $1.15 to beat Adelaide in Saturday’s AFL preliminary final at the MCG.

Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said it’s been one way traffic for the Hawks so far in betting.

“We’ve taken plenty of five figure bets on the Hawks aswell and punters have crunched them from $1.18 into $1.13,” Sullivan said.

“Hawthorn could start even shorter than $1.13 if the money continues to pour in for them and it seems punters are only just getting warmed up.”

“The Hawks are the hottest favourites in AFL preliminary final history.”

Adelaide is friendless in betting with their price drifting from $4.85 out to $6.20. They did get out to as much as $6.50.

In Friday night’s game Sydney remain solid $1.63 favourites to beat Collingwood at $2.30, despite the Swans having lost their last 11 straight against the Pies.

The Oracle's Racing Tips

1. Lesley's Choice will appreciate the drop in grade and draws to get her chance. 6. Gone Platinum strips fitter and can improve from 2. Marshal who has trialled nicely leading into this
Lesley's Choice is the class runner and although the step back to 1000m isn't ideal, can still win in Class 2 company.
Sugar Rock is The Baron's best today. Was an impressive winner on debut and can go on with the job here. One to follow through the grades.
4. Assassinate has his hoof right on the till and was a winner here at his only go at the track. 1. Sugar Rock backed up some impressive trial form on debut and can repeat from 11. Soul Serenade
With Spinning Diamond here each-way. Will find this much easier than her 7th behind Mineko in town last start.
2. Lansbury box seated before scoring a clinical win on the fresh side last start and draws to adopt similar tactics here. 8. Quelle Beaute goes well track and trip and has claims from 4. Miffin
Stratacus has returned in great nick this preparation placing first-up before winning his next two. Can win again!
3. Stratacus has improved with every run this time in and draws to dictate from the get go here. 10. Bonus Spin looks value from 9. Bandit Bay who will appreciate the rise in trip
Gift From Henry appeals at an each-way price. Comes out of strong maiden races and should find this his easiest assignment to date.
10. Encosta Jewel got home fairly in a decent form race second up and may choose to go forward with a more favourable draw here. 12. Vibrance warrants respect on debut from 1. Black Cat Moon
Encosta Jewel has ran well in some very handy races in her career to date and looks suited here. Forgive her last start on heavy ground. Very wary of first-starter Vibrance.
Just Dash On is drawn to get the gun run in a very even race. Got too far back last start but made good ground late. Settles closer here.
10. Lady Pippa gets a tricky gate first up but looks a progressive type with good gate speed and can give some cheek. 1. My Survivor is struggling with the big weights but has claims from 3. Still Dark
6. Melodies Way was doing her best work late first up and the extra trip looks ideal here. 7. Sebring's Choice should have finished closer last time and has e/way claims from 9. Tycoon Queen
Tycoon Queen was only gunned down in the final stride this track and trip last start. Only has to hold her form to be in the finish again here.
Harlequin Manner resumed from a long spell at Moe last start, running a very brave second. Will strip much fitter here. Keen on her.
8. I'm An Outoftowner gets no favours from the draw but is handy when right and her best would see her in the finish here. 7. Harlequin Manner strips fitter and has claims from 12. Touch Of Gold
