Grand Finalists  – Sydney Swans vs GWS Giants

Both the Swans and GWS have had fantastic runs these past few years, and even though the Swans have made it to the Grand Final recently, they haven’t quite been able to secure the win of wins. GWS, on the other hand, has consistently been a top team but also managed to get into the 8 time after time. Both teams have what it takes to get not only to the finals this year but to win.

Bolters: Carlton Blues 

Last year was a real eye-opener for Carlton fans as they made leaps and bounds up the ladder to show they have created an incredible team, this year we should expect to see them climb comfortably into the top eight and hold their position all the way through to finals.

Wooden Spoon: West Coast Eagles  

West Coast have suffered a few incredibly tough years and this year we expect them to fall into the same problems once again. Unfortunately they once again get the wooden spoon.

Betting On The AFL

AFL betting is offered on a variety of markets, including the premiership, Brownlow Medal, Rising Star, and Coleman Medal.

No sport stirs the passions of Australians quite like the AFL. It is the country’s number one sport and provides a much-needed sense of community for all sports lovers.

From the outback of the Northern Territory to the southern tip of Tasmania, it seems like footy (Australian Rules Football) is only getting more popular. AFL betting has seen a big rise in punters, especially online. You no longer need to take a break from work to visit your local TAB or pub.

The days of queuing up to wager on your favourite football team are long gone. If you like sports, you may now bet on your favourite teams using online bookies such as Bluebet, Ladbrokes, BetDeluxe, Neds, and Palmerbet.

AFL betting is changing all the time. In the past, you only bet on the AFL team you thought would win in head-to-head markets or perhaps on each game’s winning margin. Now there are a variety of different AFL bets to choose from, including games, the AFL premiership, Brownlow Medal, Coleman Medal, Rising Star Awards, and even oddities like individual achievements. You can now combine several wagers into a Same Game Multi (a method of betting that is becoming increasingly popular).

If you’re looking for something a little different than a head-to-head AFL wager, how about betting on which player will score the first goal? Or perhaps which player will have the most disposals for the game? There are many more examples. Each weekend, bookmakers provide extra incentives to take advantage of.

AFL Bet Types

There are many ways to bet on AFL matches, but we’ll guide you through some of the most popular ones. See below for a summary of the most common types of AFL bets customers can make or read our more comprehensive guide on how to bet on AFL.

Head-to-Head

Head-to-Head betting is the simplest way to gamble on most sports matches. Simply select who you think will win, and if they do, so do you.

LINE BETTING and HANDICAP BETTING:

Line betting is when the bookmaker tries to level the playing field between two teams by setting a specific margin. For example, if the bookmaker believes Team A is 7 points better than ‘Team B’, they will handicap ‘Team A’ by 7 points. This means that in order for bettors on Team A to win their bets, ‘Team A’ must beat ‘Team B’ by more than 7 points.

WINNING MARGINS:

The margin is the bookmaker’s offer for when you predict the end result score of a game. The punter must choose not just the winning team, but also the correct margin. If you think ‘Team A’ will defeat ‘Team B’ and want to wager on the margin, you must anticipate how many points there will be between the two teams at full-time. So, if you feel like ‘Team A’ will win by a margin of 1 to 39 points, ‘Team A’ must then win by that margin. If ‘Team B’ wins by that margin it does not count.

FIRST GOALSCORER:

With this option, you can choose which player from either team you think will score the first goal of the game. You can also bet on anytime goalscorer which is usually a safer option.

TOTAL POINTS:

Betting on the total is a popular choice. The Over and Under are two sides of the Total. The number of combined points between the two teams is referred to as the ‘Total’. For example, if the Demons and the Bulldogs are playing and you predict that the score will be UNDER -145, then the total score of the entire game must be less than 145. Alternatively, you can choose the OVER which means that they will have to score higher than a specified total.

How does a line bet work in AFL?

Line betting is handicap betting for Australian rules football. When using line betting, you will see that the underdog receives points and the favourite gives away points to equalise things. For example, say there is a match between the Essendon Bombers and the Geelong Cats, Essendon would get a handicap to try and even the playing field.

What are AFL betting tips?

AFL tips are predictions made about the outcomes of AFL matches, which can help fans and punters make informed decisions about which teams to support in betting or fantasy leagues.

What should I consider when making AFL tips?

When making AFL tips, consider current team form, injuries, head-to-head statistics, venue performance, weather conditions, and any expert commentary (We already do this for you).

What is the difference between ‘tipping’ and ‘betting’?

Tipping is predicting the winners of AFL matches, often as part of a social competition, without necessarily involving monetary bets. Betting is wagering money on markets set by bookmakers, which can include match outcomes, player performances, and more.

Is it better to tip conservatively or take risks?

This depends on your competition’s rules and scoring. Conservative tipping often ensures steady points each round, while taking risks with ‘roughies’ can yield higher points but is more unpredictable.

What are the most common mistakes in AFL tipping?

Common mistakes include:

  • Over-relying on favourites.
  • Ignoring current team forms and news.
  • Not updating tips to reflect last-minute changes before match commencements.

Who has won the most AFL premierships?

The most VFL/AFL premierships have been won by Essendon (16) and Carlton (16). Only Fremantle, Gold Coast, and Greater Western Sydney, three of the league’s four newest clubs, are yet to win a championship.

If you bet on a player in the AFL and they get injured, what happens?

If the harm is caused by an accident during the first four rounds, all bets will be voided UNLESS a winner has already been determined via the judges’ scorecards.
