The weather has been up and down over the course of the day in Melbourne, however there are a couple of odds that stand out across the markets available.
Below you will find a player to target for disposals, and a player to target for goals.
Player: John Noble
There has been a role change of sorts for John Noble this year, moving his way out of the backline to find a spot on the wing. This position was largely vacated by Tom Phillips moving to Hawthorn, and by all accounts it sounds like Steele Sidebottom is likely to split his time between the forward line and midfield.
Noble was a victim of the ball spending a considerable amount of time over the other side of the ground for long periods, impacting his influence in the first half. We saw a taste of what can potentially happen at times this year with Noble on the wing in the 3rd quarter, amassing 11 disposals and 16 for the second half. There is an element of risk in taking wingman as there can be a feast or famine type result at play, however Noble looks to be value here at the possession total of 19.5, and in some of the Most Disposals Group B markets available,
As one of the better disposals by foot in the team, the Pies do look to go through Noble where they can.
Market: to record 20 disposals or more
Odds: $2.00 at Pointsbet
Market: to record most disposals in group B
Odds: $6.50 at TAB
Player: Will Hoskin-Elliot
Happy to buy in on the dip in form we have seen from Hoskin-Elliot. Plays forward and looked more threatening in the practice match vs Geelong than what we saw from him last week. With an emphasis on Pies needing more marking targets in the forward 50, and Weitering and Jones likely to blanket Mihocek and Cox, Hoskin-Elliot stands out as a player that can pop up and cause some grief.
Another player of interest here at decent odds is Josh Thomas to kick 1 or 2 goals, however if you have a Bet365 account, the odds on Hoskin-Elliot to kick 2 goals and 3 goals are a little too good to pass up.
Market: Hoskin-Elliot to kick 2+ goals
Odds: $5.00 at Bet365
Market: Hoskin-Elliot to kick 3+ goals
Odds: $19 at Bet365
