Betting on the AFL: AFL Betting
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 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 as individual achievements. You can now combine several wagers into a Single 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.
How to Bet on the AFL
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 or read our more comprehensive guide on how to bet on AFL.
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.
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.
With this option, you can choose which player from either team do you think will score the first goal of the game. You can also bet on anytime goalscorer which is usually a safer option.
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.

2022 Season Predictions & Round 1 AFL Tips:
Football is back & what a sight it will be to see the MCG pumping again when the premiers Melbourne take on the Bulldogs in a grand final replay on Wednesday night. Yes, Wednesday Night. What a game it should be as both sides should be in for a big year again but who else is in for a big year & who is going to struggle?
AFL Ladder Prediction 2022
- Port Power
- Western Bulldogs
- St Kilda
- West Coast
- North Melbourne
- Gold Coast
Grand Finalists Port vs Brisbane
This may surprise a few people but I think it might be an all interstate grand final this year. Both teams are very good at home and with the Powers younger players getting a little bit older they are near their peak. Strong in defence & with great tall forwards they will be hard to beat this year. Brisbane well, this is their last chance to make a grand final. Been so close for the last couple of years they need to get a return now on their investment
Bolters – Richmond
Last year the Tigers were tired from playing finals the last few years and when a lot of injuries come your way it impacts your team a lot. Watch for the Tigers to bounce back and have one more crack at a flag with this team of stars.
Wooden Spoon: Gold Coast
What can you say about the Suns? Their coach is under fire, they have good players but the better ones want to leave for other teams & now their best player is gone for the season with an ACL. With King gone how will they kick a winning score? I don’t think they can. it will be a long season for the Gold Coast.
AFL Best Bet & Value Tips
AFL Grand Final Preview:
MELBOURNE vs WESTERN BULLDOGS
After what feels like forever, we are finally made it to the biggest game of the year.
With everything that has happened in Melbourne this year (including an earthquake), We have the best 2 sides all year playing off in the big one over in Perth. After winning 17 games and finishing the season on top of the ladder, the Demons have been the best side all year. They take on the Bulldogs, who hit a little trouble at the end of the year, losing their last couple of games, but we have realized that they just had a big training block to get ready for the finals. Well, they are coming into this game cherry ripe after playing a couple of challenging games before the two-week break. Or will the Demons have the better fitness resting all the bumps and bruise you get during the season. They have only played 2 games in the last month & both times they have looked the class team of the competition. Let’s have a look at both sides & see if we can find a winner.
All year the Demons have been the team to beat & that is due to how even the side is across the board. They finished 1st in Defense & we all know that Defense wins championships. But it isn’t because they have amazing defensive players. It is due to the team defence and the zone Simon Goodwin has implemented. They set up so well, covering space and the main targets inside the defensive 50. The way they move the ball out of the 50 is impressive as well, thanks to what is close to the best midfield core in the league this year. Oliver, Bradshaw, Salem & Petracca have all been damaging at different stages of the year & that can be thanks to the best big man in the league Max Gawn. Max has been winning tap outs all year, and if you give the Melbourne midfielders the first touch of the ball, they will do great things with it. The One weakness the Demons have is the forward line. For a side that has won 80% of games this year, they only average 85 points. They have a good range of goalkickers but no major forward that dominates games. Ben brown could be that guy, but they will have to get multiple goals out of Bailey Fritch & Pickett, who can make something happen out of nothing. The way the demons beat you is the pressure in the forward half of the ground. Once that ball is in the Forward 50, it is tough to get out unless they kick a goal.
The Bulldogs were the second-best side all year, but with a bad last month, they dropped to 5th, forcing them to take the hard way to the grand finale. That’s the way the Bulldogs like it. They won the flag a few years ago from 7th & now they look to do the same thing again. The Bulldogs are all about hard work and pressure. If they are on song, this game could be a very contested low scoring game, even with the wide-open spaces of Optus stadium. The Bulldogs have had a better season up forward than the Demons. They average over 90 points a game, but they are without their leading goal scorer Josh Bruce thanks injury. They will be leaning on Aaron Naughton & the surprise packet Cory Weighman. They will get a lot of help from the half flankers who are close to the best in the league in The Bont & Bailey Smith, who is built for the big stage. If the Demons don’t shut these guys down, they will be lifting another Premiership trophy at the Whitten Oval. The Defense of the bulldogs is a lot like the Demons, but I feel they are lacking a key defender & have been known to get in trouble. They need to double team and group defend the key forwards of the Demons to win this game.
After looking at everything and the 2 games, they played against each other earlier this year. This grand final will be a cracker. An old school grand final where pressure tackling and ball disposal will be king. The side that can run out all 4 quarters & keep a level head will come out on top. The Demons, I feel, are that team. With Max Gawn giving them first hands on the ball, they will be in the key position to win this game. They have made a hobbit of winning the game by forward pressure. Oliver and Petracca will be tagged by the dogs, so watch for a player like Salem to get free and have a big day. Maybe even Brayshaw. Petracca could move up forward & kick a couple of goals. Watch him as a Norm Smith chance. The game will be tight. I don’t expect a blowout, and I’m looking at an 86 – 72 scoreline for this game. If that happens, the cheese boards will be thrown in the air & after a 50-year premiership drought, the Grand old flag will finally be atop the AFL again.
AFL Finals Week 3
GEELONG vs MELBOURNE
Friday night starts off with the two sides that played in one of the season’s best games. In that game, Max gawn kicked the winning goal with only seconds to go. The Cats gave up a big lead that night in the last quarter & I expect this game to be tight. The Cats are a side that looks tired. They are one of the oldest sides in the league, and in the last few games, they have struggled to run out the last quarter, letting teams back in and losing games they should have won. The Demons play a hard contested style of footy that doesn’t allow them to kick away or beat teams by a lot. Actually, with the Dees, defensive skills have only allowed a couple of games where the teams have scored over 160 points. In a match with Hawkins and Cameron up forward for the Cats & a wide range of goal kickers for the Demons, I see them enjoying the wide spaces of Optus stadium & book their ticket to the grand final in a fortnight.
Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE 1-39 $2.15
PORT POWER vs BULLDOGS
Saturday night, a packed house at the Adelaide oval & not a bulldogs fan on the site. This is what the bulldogs have to overcome to get a spot in the grand finals. The Adelaide oval singing ‘You’ll never tear us apart’ could make this game over before it started. What a sight it will be. Both sides play a fast running style of football. This is why they are 1-1 this year in the 2 games they have played. The Power have a habit of losing games against the top 4 sides this year, and they could very easily put in a bad game if the Bulldogs can stop the ball from staying in the forward 50. The Dogs have a couple of big out themself since they last played with Bruce and Weightman out of the side. Their forward line is a little down on variety. They still have some of the best rebound players in the game, and they will need to be at their best to stop Dixon and the Power. With that being said, 50,000 people against 22, you have to go with the home side in this game, especially with the week of the Power should win and take on the Dees in a great grand final.
Suggested Bets: POWER 1-39 $2.20
AFL Finals Week 2
GEELONG vs PORT POWER
Friday night starts off with a game that has lost a lot of spice from it. Without Toby Greene the GWS side is half the size you would normally get. If he was in this game, I would be tempted to pick the GWS over the cats. Geelong is a side that is very tired, and it has really shown the last 3 weeks they have played. They still have a lot of talent on the field in Cameron, Hawkins, Selwood and co. They are starting to get exposed late in games with a lack of run & with that comes rushed disposals, poor kicking and a lack of tackling. If GWS wins this game, they have to tackle their hearts out,m spread the Cats on the Big oval in Perth & find Forwards like Hogan on the lead with good kicks into the 50. I think they can do that for a period of time, but it will be too much for the GWS, who will lose by 3-4 goals
Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39 2.25
BRISBANE vs BULLDOGS
This game has all the makings of being the game of the finals. The Brisbane Lions are a fast-moving high scoring team that got stopped by the Demons last week. The Bulldogs come back to form last week against the Bombers. Maybe they have just come out of a heavy training block, and they are starting to hit the finals at full speed. Both sides are similar in ways. They both need to win the ball out of the middle and take many marks inside the forward 50. The side that can run and carry the ball the most Saturday night will win this game. The only way the bulldogs will win this is if they outwork the Lions in defence. If you give the Lions time to move the ball and kick it in deep to their forward line, they will get outdone. This is what I think will happen, and the Lions will win a tough affair.
Suggested Bets: Lions 1-39 $2.30
AFL Finals Week 1
GEELONG vs PORT POWER
Friday night starts off with a great game that we saw earlier in the year. Geelong & Port earlier this year, the Cats went over to SA and knocked off the Power. 91-112. That is a very high scoring game compared to today’s football normally. I don’t think this game will be that high scoring. I feel that the cats are starting to get tired after a long season. The Cats needed the week off. The Powers problems are that they struggle against the top 8 sides. They have a 4-4 record & surprisingly, the cats have a 4-5 record. It will be a tight game no matter what happens. Whoever can win the contested ball will win this game & I think it’s hard for Geelong to win a second time in SA power.
Suggested Bets: PORT POWER 1-39 $2.25
SYDNEY SWANS vs GWS
Elimination final & Sydney derby, what more could you want? This is a game we don’t know what will happen as it’s being played in Tasmania. Let’s look at the form in tassie. Well, Buddy Franklin loves it down there, Thirteen Thirteen. If the big bud can have a great game, it’s all over. Gws have a couple of players that can go with him & they are playing great football at the moment. I really like the GWS in the last couple of months. They deserve this shot in the finals. The Forward line with Hogan & Green is very classy and finishes well. They Need to kick straight. They can have Toby kick 3-3. He needs to kick 4-2 or 3-1. With big Mumford back, I think they can win the ball out of the centre and im happy to take a punt on the Giants in this one.
Suggested Bets: GWS 1-39 2.60
MELBOURNE vs BRISBANE
Could this be the Dees year? after a comeback that they will talk about for years to come, the Demons finished on top of the ladder and take on the fast-finishing Lions. Melbourne have been a side that hasn’t won by a lot of points all year. They play a rock-solid defence, and most of the time, Melbourne games have under 160 points scored in them. This week, the Lions have a couple of big inclusions with Harris Andrews & Mitch Robinson back for this game. The contested ball will win this game & if the lions can kick straight, this game is over. I have to stick with the old advice of defence with Flags. If Melbourne can’t stop the Lions, they can’t beat them in a shot out.
Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE 1-39 $2.20
BULLDOGS vs ESSENDON
Playing for a spot in week 2 of the finals, we have what should be the best game of the weekend between the disappointing Bulldogs and the impressive Bombers. The Dogs are another team that looks tired. They have lost their last few games & gone from the top 2 chances to fighting for survival. The Bombers are a different team. They have won their previous 3 games, which included a win against the Bulldogs. If the Bombers can keep control of the ball and move it forward to stringer and co. This could be their day. In this one, it all comes down to pressure the side that tackles the best and stops the opposition from having easy disposals will win this game.
Suggested Bets: BOMBERS 1-39 $2.80

NRL Bet Types
NRL betting is becoming more complex as time goes on. In the past, bettors would simply select the team they thought was going to win and place their bets accordingly. Now, there are a plethora of different bets that can be placed on NRL teams, players, margins, individual awards and much more. You can bet on individual games as well as the NRL premiership itself. Some even go so far as to bet on Dally M Medal winners and other novelty markets.
With NRL betting, you’re not limited to the typical bet. You could instead try betting on who will score the first try or even how long it will take for the first points to be scored. And if that’s not enough action for you, bookmakers offer numerous Money Back Specials every weekend too.

Rugby league offers a wide range of betting options, let’s explore some of the most popular ones.
Head to Head betting is the most straightforward approach to bet on most sports events. Simply pick who you believe will win the game, and if you’re correct, you’ll be rewarded.
LINE BETTING and HANDICAP BETTING:
When a bookmaker wants to make a game appear more balanced between two uneven teams, they handicap one team by giving the other team points. For example, if the bookie believes Team A is 6 points better than Team B, they will give Team B 6 extra points. This makes it so that in order for bets on Team A to win, team A must now win by 7 or more points.
FIRST TRY SCORER:
You may select which player on either side you think will score the initial try of the game. In most games, you can also bet on the final try scorer.
You can bet on who you think will be leading the game at half-time and at full-time, whether it’s a goal or not. There are many variables that may happen in any game, especially as a draw is an option.
A margin is a line that separates the bookmaker’s vision of the possible end results from the actual outcomes. As a result, the punter must pick the correct outcome as well as the appropriate margin. If you think Team A will beat Team B and want to wager on the margin, for example, you’ll need to choose how many points there will be between the two teams at full-time. So if you believe the Roosters will win in a margin of 1-12 points, go with that option. Alternatively, perhaps you feel the Panthers will triumph by 13+ points in a game.

With the season starting on Thursday night let’s have a look at the Buddha’s predictions for the 2022 season.
Where I think every side will finish on the ladder, who will be the big movers and shakers, who will win the wooden spoon & who will end the year as premiers.
2022 Ladder prediction
- Melbourne Storm
- Manly Sea Eagles
- Sydney Roosters
- Penrith Panthers
- South Sydney
- Parramatta Eels
- Cronulla Sharks
- Gold Coast Titans
- Brisbane Broncos
- Canberra Raiders
- NZ Warriors
- North Queensland Cowboys
- Newcastle Knights
- St George Dragons
- Canterbury Bulldogs
- West Tigers
Grand Finalists – Melbourne Storm vs Sydney Roosters
If the storm doesn’t make the Grand final this year they will struggle for the next couple of years as they lose a lot of star players to rival clubs. The Roosters had a lot of injuries last year and they have a star-studded team if they can keep fit most of the year.
Bolters: Cronulla Sharks
The Sharks are a well-drilled side and with great pick up like Nico Hayes and Dale Funicune they can move up the ladder and play finals maybe even a home final if things go right during the year.
Wooden Spoon: West Tigers
It looks like the West Tigers will have a very long season. I think their list is worst than last year when they finished 13th. They have injuries to start off the year and looked average in the pre-season games.
