Howe Tipped For Mark Of The Year
January 31, 2013
Melbourne high flyer Jeremy Howe has been tipped to go back to back and take the 2013 Mark Of The Year at online bookmaker Sportsbet.
The 22-year-old Tasmanian has been installed $5.00 favourite with West Coast’s Nic Naitanui also a chance to add to his already impressive highlight reel at $9.00 and Andrew Walker at $11.
Jay Schulz ($15), Dale Thomas ($17) and Tom Hawkins ($17) are also right in contention.
“We know Nic Nat has the leap, but Howe was nominated 8 times last year! If he gets anywhere near that many nominations again this year, the $5.00 could be value,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
Howe was recruited by Melbourne in the 2010 AFL draft and has impressed since making his debut in 2011. He took the 2012 Mark Of The Year for an amazing screamer of Sydney Swans Heath Grundy on the round 8 fixture last season.
