After the last two premierships have been won by the Western Bulldogs & Richmond, GAMBLOR is loath to get too carried away in these markets but one things that has certainly been borne out over this time, is that it is becoming increasingly difficult for a non-Victorian team to win the flag. An argument could say that the travel factor certainly didn’t aid Sydney (2016) & Adelaide(2017).
In the H & A season if you have a Melbourne based team in the top 6 and they are playing any interstate team at the MCG, you’ll probably pick the Melbourne based team wouldn’t you? Why would it be different on the biggest day of the year. We seem to pick out grand final winner over the body of work rather than the factors of the day (venue, record at venue, conditions etc..)
GAMBLOR has put his balls on the line and predicted his ladder and other such things…..
