AFL Offer on First Goalscorers as the Top Goalkickers Chase Down High Flying Eagle

The AFL's leading Goalkicker Josh Kennedy won't play this weekend giving those behind him a chance to bridge the gap. Will those chasing get off the mark early in their respective matches.

3 of the AFL’s top 5 goalkickers will take to the field in round 13 knowing they can play catch up in the race for the Coleman Medal while the front 2 sit on the sideline. West Coast Eagles star Josh Kennedy is out on his own with 46 goals from 12 games while Giants forward Jeremy Cameron is next best, a whole 11 majors back. Then comes Sydney superstar Lance Franklin, crafty Crow Eddie Betts and Collingwood’s colossus Travis Cloke on 34, 33 and 31 goals respectively; and all 3 will be out to add to their total this weekend. If you fancy backing them to begin with a bang, William Hill’s AFL offer is too tempting not to take on.

AFL Offer from William Hill

Place a first goalscorer bet on any or all 6 AFL matches this round with William Hill, and if it loses but your selection boots the second or even third goal, you’ll get your cash back. That’s your stake returned, up to $50, if your player doesn’t kick the first major but manages the next one or even the one after. The offer applies to your first bet on the market per match, giving you 6 chances to win with William Hill or at least keep your cash if your bloke boots an early goal.

Can Cloke Kick Collingwood to an Upset?

Cloke could be Collingwood’s key to upsetting Fremantle. He’s in great goal scoring form with 12 majors in his past 2 matches. He booted the first goal of the game against Melbourne 2 starts back and finished with 7, before firing 5 against GWS in the Pies’ latest victory. Can he spearhead the Black and Whites charge against the table toppers in the west?

Back Buddy

Big Buddy’s been banging in the goals in recent weeks booting 14 in his last 3 games. On 2 of those occasions Franklin was the first goalkicker. The 2014 Coleman Medallist will want even more than the 4 goals he booted against Richmond in June last year as he chases down top spot on the goalkicking ladder. He’ll surely be among the goals against the Tigers on Friday, will he enter the scoresheet early?

Bet on Betts

Adelaide’s Eddie Betts has been quiet of late with just 2 goals in 2 games but he should get a chance to bag plenty when the Crows take on the toothless Lions this weekend. If Betts boots straight at the start, there’s a good chance he’ll be among the early goalkickers. Adelaide face Brisbane at the Gabba on Saturday night.
