Tom Mitchell is the odds on favourite at $1.53 to win the Brownlow tonight.
Mitchell opened the season as a $14 chance, but from his remarkable opening round against Collingwood on, Mitchell’s price has steadily firmed.

There have been several big bets come in for the Hawthorn star, with one savvy punter facing a $45,000 payout if he wins, having placed a bet of $5,000 at $9.00 after round one.
Mitchell has attracted over half the total money in the market, and over six times the amount of money than next best backed player, Max Gawn.

We’re tipping it’s going to be a tight contest tonight so Charlie is far from decided, but that hasn’t stopped punters piling in for Mitchell. Gawn and Dustin Martin are both lurking in single figure odds so we wouldn’t be shocked should there be an upset.
