2009 AFL Grand Final and Norm Smith Betting Tips and Odds

The wait is finally over, the last Saturday in September is nearly upon us. This years Grand Final is certainly between the top 2 teams of the season, Geelong and St Kilda. The Saints and the Cats were both undefeated when they met in round 14 and we were given a spectacular game in which St Kilda snatched victory in the very last minute in what many have called the game of the season. Will the Grand Final be as close?

With their loss to Hawthorn last year, Geelong seem to have learned a valuable lesson and they look to have peaked just at the right time, thrashing Collingwood in the Qualifying Final by more than 12 goals. St Kilda, on the other hand have started to look a little shaky, struggling in a low-scoring match against the Bulldogs.

My tip is Geelong, their premiership window is closing and I think they’ll simply be too strong for St. Kilda if they’ve got their kicking boots on.

2009 Norm Smith Betting Odds

I have tipped 2 players from each team. if Geelong wins, it will be out of Ablett or Selwood. If the Saints cause an upset, captain Nick Riewoldt will probably get the medal. It’s hard to leave out Hayes, Montagna and Dal Santo, but I’ve chosen the good odds of game breaker Brendan Goddard.
