Kennedy's has headed the betting with sportsbet.com.au to be AFL's leading kicker in 2013 for last month but has drifted from $1.50 out to $1.90 with his 60-goal count leaving him just one ahead of Roughead.

Roughead, who has also won the Coleman Medal twice in his career in 2008 and 2011, has kept Hawthorn at the top of the AFL ladder with his form in front of goal with 59 to his name for the season and punters have latched onto his impressive form by backing him onto the second line of betting at $3.00 from $6.00. He was a $51 chance back in May.

His goalscoring partner Lance Franklin, who has 47 goals to his name, is out to $251 from $34 have missed the last two weeks of action.

His GWS side may have won just once all season, but 58-goal Jeremy Cameron is into $5.00 from $6.00 to land the award, while Collingwood's Travis Cloke has firmed into $7.00 from $18 after reaching the 55-goal mark following the Magpies' improved form.

Richmond Tigers star Jack Riewoldt, who won the award in 2010 and 2012,  had headed the market at $3.50 but is now out to $21 despite his side set to secure a play-off spot and a likely first finals appearance in 11 years.
