After receiving virtually no interest over the summer, punters with online bookmaker sportsbet have been quick to jump on Fremantle after last night’s round 1 win over West Coast.

Entering the match as a $14 chance to win the flag, Fremantle have shortened to $10 with plenty of support coming for them this morning at that price.

As a result West Coast, who were second favourites at $5.50, have drifted out to $7.50.

With sportsbet.com.au already offering markets for round 2 matches, the Dockers have firmed from $1.33 to $1.24 over the Western Bulldogs ($3.10 out to $3.75), while West Coast have drifted from $1.62 to $1.80 in their round 2 match over Hawthorn ($2.20 into $2.00).

“After hardly no interest, punters were obviously impressed with what they saw from the Dockers. They are now into $10 for the flag and punters are already snapping up their odds for round 2,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.

On the other hand, Adelaide’s disappointing performance on Friday night has not only seen their flag odds move from $12 to $16, but they are now outsiders in their round 2 match over Brisbane after drifting from $1.75 to $1.90. The Lions have firmed from $2.00 to $1.85.
