Rance a bolter

- NICK QUINN

ALEX Rance has had an out­stand­ing sea­son and one punter is con­fi­dent he will buck the trend of de­fend­ers polling poorly in the Brown­low Medal with a $50 bet on him at $2501 to win.

Should Rance go on to win Rich­mond’s first Brown­low since Ian Stewart in 1971 the punter will pocket $125,050.

Fre­man­tle’s Nat Fyfe heads the mar­ket at $1.40.

Fi­nals fancy

NORTH Mel­bourne is ex­pected to de­feat Essendon at Eti­had Sta­dium tonight and the Kan­ga­roos have had their price slashed to make the fi­nals.

The Kan­ga­roos have won four of their past five matches against the Bombers and are $1.24 with Essendon $4.10.

North has had its fi­nals odds slashed from $2.25 into $1.50 af­ter belt­ing Gee­long last week­end, while Essendon is $51 to fea­ture in the Septem­ber ac­tion.

Easy money?

ONE punter is look­ing to make an easy $1200 this week­end bet­ting against an AFL and NRL strug­gler.

“We took a $5000 bet on Fre­man­tle beat­ing Carl­ton into Bris­bane beat­ing the Wests Tigers at odds of $1.24,” TAB’s Trent Langskaill said.

Should both be suc­cess­ful the punter will pocket $6200.
