In the Final Word, we’ll look at the super POD options, the players at under 5% ownership (or around about) that could send you soaring (or falling) up the overall ranks.
They come with big risk, but the reward is immense if it comes off.
Generally speaking I’ll look to single game week players, with doubles upcoming, as the low-ownership double game round players on that given week tend to sky-rocket out of super POD territory once the round begins and trades are locked in.
There was no Final Word last round, prior to that we had Nathan Ellis, Xavier Bartlett and Nathan McSweeney ahead of their round 7 double.
For the double, McSweeney scored 9 in just one game, Barlett 149 and Ellis 121, so two out of three ain’t bad.
With every team on the single game week it opens up a STACK of super POD options.

Sean Abbott – 2.7% ownership (top 10% overall rank)
Abbott is one of the best players in Supercoach, but has been fairly luckless at stages this season.
He’s very affordable for his ability at just $152k, bowls key late overs and could bat a spot higher pending Tom Curran’s replacement (hopefully not Hayden Kerr).
The Sixers face the fragile Thunder batting order at the SCG in round 8 which is enticing.
He’s at just 2.7% ownership approximately five hours out from the first game of the round, so he should stay in super POD range.
He’ll be more enticing if the Sixers bowl first in Sydney.
Overton arguably has the best role in Supercoach and is in terrific form which is backed by his Supercoach average of 72.1.
He belted 123 last game and can go big again.
Elsewhere, take your pick because outside of the three aforementioned players you’ll be getting a very low percentage play.
Beau Webster is in strong form, and although there’s volatility over his bowling role he’s a differential play to Maxwell.

Will Sutherland is now likely batting six and becomes even more appealing, while teammate Akeal Hosein is arguably a better option with more guarantee to bowl his overs.
Dan Sams had a stinker last round, but that should only keep people away from him.
He has a great role and has some big scores to his name already this season.
For me it’ll likely be a slight gamble on Overton as VC, likely into Maxwell C depending how my round plays out in that time.
