WITH seven rounds left in the AFL season the question as to who will win the AFL premiership seems to be getting murkier after pacesetters the Sydney Swans have suffered consecutive defeats.

Twice they have the chance to win the matches against Fremantle which they lost by a point and then by two points to St Kilda on Sunday at Marvel Stadium.

The Swans though are still two games clear of the second team Carlton and should return to the winner’s circle against North Melbourne at the SCG on Saturday.

The Swans are still $3.25 favourite with PlayUp with Carlton at $7.

Brisbane have hit form again and have surged to $7 in the betting.

Both the GWS Giants and Geelong are next on $11.

The Giants flicked the switch in the second quarter against Carlton and have surged back into AFL premiership contention on the back of that win.

The Cats have also hit form again and should be able to defeat last year’s AFL premiers Collingwood when they meet at the MCG on Friday night as the Pies are enduring a spate of injuries.

The Magpies are now out to $15 to win the AFL premiership.
