What Punters Are Betting On in 2014

With only hours remaining until 2013 comes to an end, online bookmaker Sportsbet Australia has looked into what Aussie punters think 2014 has in store.

Some trends won’t be a surprise, while some might make you choke on your corn flakes. Without further ado, here’s what the punters are backing to happen across sport, racing, entertainment and politics next year:


·         A two horse race for the 2014 Premiership between Hawthorn ($4.75) & Fremantle ($5.00). Both have attracted double the money to win the flag than any other side with Freo attracting $3,000 more than the Hawks

·         St. Kilda ($3.10) will run last. They’ve attracted double the money than any other team to win the least amount of games in 2014. The Western Bulldogs ($61) and GWS Giants ($1.91) are the next best backed

·         Jack Gunston will win the Coleman Medal. He’s attracted 3 times the money than anyone else at the big odds of $21

·         Carlton’s Chris Judd won’t find the fountain of youth in the pre-season, attracting one bet of 75 cents to win the Brownlow Medal


·         The Roosters ($5.00) will cruise to back-to-back premierships. Punters have staked 3 times more money on the Chooks to win the Premiership than any other side. Souths are only the 5th best supported team

·         The wooden spoon will head from Parramatta to the Wests Tigers despite the Tigers being $5.00 shots for least wins and the Eels the $3.50 favourite

·         New South Wales to finally end Queensland’s stranglehold on State of Origin. Although they’re $2.30 outsiders to win the 2014 series, punters have wagered more money on NSW to win than the Maroons

·         Sharks, Bulldogs, Dragons, Cowboys & Raiders are no chance of winning the Auckland Nines, hardly attracting a bet. Punters say that the Warriors are the team to beat


·         Gai Waterhouse will win consecutive Melbourne Cups with Fiorente, who is best backed to repeat its 2013 feat at the odds of $21

·         Shamus Award will repeat its 2013 Cox Plate win in 2014 with punters wagering two times more money on the four-year-old than any other runner


·         Tim Cahill ($2.20) and not Lucas Neill ($2.40) will be captain of the Socceroos for their opening FIFA World Cup match

·         6 punters think the Socceroos at $34 will qualify from Group B

·         Brazil ($4.33) will win the World Cup, with Germany ($6.00) their biggest threat


·         Lorde will win the 2013 Triple J Hottest 100 in a canter after being backed from $1.50 into $1.15

·         Cate Blanchett will be an Oscar winner, taking home Best Actress for her role in Blue Jasmine

Current Affairs:

·         There will be no interest rates cuts in 2014. 99% of money bet on how many cuts we’ll see in 2014 has been on zero

·         Christine Milne ($1.45) heavily backed to be the first leader to go – so much so she’s attracted 98% of all money staked on the market

·         The Liberals ($1.30) will win the South Australian state election having attracted double the money than Labor ($3.10)
