My analysis of the leading AFL goal scorers and tips for betting on the winner of the Coleman Medal including the best odds as of Round 4, 2014.
There is a couple of surprises at the top of the leading goalscorer ladder, with Jay Shulz continuing to impress over at Port Adelaide and young star in the making, Jeremy Cameron for GWS sitting equal fourth in current goals kicked, along with Tom Hawkins, Justin Westhoff and Jack Gunston. I think each of these players could potentially win the award this year, it appears to be a very open market at this stage of the year as most teams are now trying their hardest to spread their goals around instead of relying on one key focus, making it easy for the opposition to set up and double or even triple team that key forward.
The openness of the betting market is great for us punters, as we get better odds on all players since they all have a very strong chance of winning, especially at this early stage of 2014. Jarryd Roughead is equal second in goals kicked this year along with Nick Riewoldt and Luke Breust, he’s kicked 12 goals and is deservedly the current favourite with odds of $6. At this price he’s still worth putting a bet on if you think he can keep it up. I also don’t think that Jay Shulz will be paying $17 for much longer, if you think he can continue kicking goals and if Port Adelaide is going to be a top team this year, now is the time to bet on him.

This is the first entertainment betting post I’ve made, I’m not sure if there are any tips on picking the winner of these popularity contests, but there must be a way to profit off novelty betting markets. I’d be happy to hear from any punters out there who think they know how to gain an edge on these type of markets.
The Samoan born Australian boxer Alex Leapai, nickname “The Lionheart” will become Australia’s first heavyweight boxing champion in over 100 years if he can defeat Ukrainian world champion boxer “Dr Steelhammer” Wladimir Klitschko, current holder of the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO and The Ring heavyweight boxing titles, in Germany on April 26, 2014 (The morning of April 27th in Australia).
Leapai packs devastating power with both hands, capable of knocking out any opponent who gets in the way of his fists, but Klitschko has a distinct 15cm height and 16cm reach advantage. If Leapai can get close enough to the current world champ, he is every chance to knock him out and cause one of the biggest upsets in recent heavyweight boxing history. All of Australia, Samoa and New Zealand will be cheering on the “Lionheart” delivery driver from Brisbane, Queensland.
