ESSENDON has been the best backed team in AFL premiership markets with the Bombers firming from $26 into $17.

"As soon as we opened them at $26 there was solid support and obviously with the signing of Brendon Goddard they are well placed to have a big year," TAB's Adam Hamilton said.

Bigger bets placed with the TAB on the Bombers include $500 at $26 and $1250 at $17.

There has also been strong backing for West Coast at the seemingly generous odds of $7.

"We took a $3000 bet on West Coast at $7 for a potential $21,000 collect right after the announcement that they had recruited classy midfielder Cale Morton so plenty of punters are confident they have the list to go to the next level this season," Hamilton said.

One punter is predicting Geelong can have another big season.

"We took a $10,000 bet on the Cats for the flag at $21 for a potential $210,000 collect,"'s Haydn Lane said.

Geelong is now into $18.

Coleman Medal

LANCE Franklin has been well backed at $3.25 to win the 2013 Coleman Medal with leading online bookmaker

"Buddy had the Coleman at his mercy this year before his assault was ruined by injury, he kicks big bags and we expect the money to continue for him at that price,"'s Haydn Lane said.

Adelaide forward Taylor Walker is the $5.50 second favourite ahead of this year's winner Jack Riewoldt, who has opened at $6 alongside Fremantle skipper Matthew Pavlich.

One punter is confident that Collingwood forward Travis Cloke will have a big year after staying with the Pies.

"One of the first bets we wrote was a $250 wager on Cloke for a potential $4500 collect," Lane said.

No love for the Saints

ST KILDA has attracted the most money to not make the finals this season.

"Punters are treating the $1.55 on the Saints not playing finals footy as a free kick with bets of $2500 and $1500 on at that price," Centrebet's Michael Felgate said.

The Western Bulldogs are the shortest priced team at just $1.01 not to make the eight with odds not offered for new boys Gold Coast and Greater Western Sydney.

"We also have a most losses market and one punter has had a monster crack on Melbourne at $15 with a bet of $5000 for a potential $75,000 collect," Felgate said.

Brownlow Medal

FOR the first time in AFL betting history there are four players locked at the top of Brownlow medal markets.

"We can't split Gary Ablett, Dane Swan, Trent Cotchin and Jobe Watson all locked at $9 so we are leaving it up to the punters and there has been solid support for all four of them," Hamilton said.

Rising Star Award

MELBOURNE father-son recruit Jack Viney has been the best backed player to win the NAB Rising Star award.

"We opened Viney at $16 and he was heavily backed at that price and is now into $10 and second favourite,"

Gold Coast rookie Jaeger O'Meara remains the $7 favourite with good money for another son of a champion at long odds.

"Barry Mitchell's son Tom has firmed from $35 into $26, he showed plenty of promise last season and has the advantage of a second season in the system," Eskander said.
