AFL in Australia
The AFL is the very top level of Australian rules football. After initially starting in Victoria, the AFL now comprises 18 teams from across Australia.
It’s not just the quality of the teams that makes the AFL so popular, it’s the passion and dedication of the fans of all 18 teams. Every team has their own, traditions, histories and songs of which they are rightly proud even if some have been more successful than others.
Each year the 18 teams compete to be crowned the AFL champions. The first period of the competition takes the shape of a home-and-away season that lasts 23 rounds. When the season is over in early September, the team at the top of the ladder are named the minor premiers and awarded the McClelland Trophy.
That’s when the real action begins.
The top eight teams enter the four-week Finals Series but only two will make it to the AFL’s showpiece event, the Grand Final, in which the premiers are crowned.
Carlton and Essendon share the record for the most number of premierships at 16 while Richmond are the reigning champions having beaten Adelaide in the 2017 Grand Final.
Popular AFL Bets and Markets in 2018
AFL betting has come a long way since the days where you could basically only bet on who would win an individual match. Australian punters now have a huge amount of choice with the best bookies offering over 150 markets full of tempting AFL odds for each match.
As well as the head-to-head betting the most popular AFL betting options include handicap markets which can make one sided games more competitive or provide a bigger payout (margin of victory markets do something similar).
The over/under markets let you bet on whether you think games will be high or low scoring and you can also bet on the number of points you think individual teams will score.
There are a host of player betting markets available to you while quarter-by-quarter betting gives you more options in terms of the outcome of a match.
Away from individual matches and the best bookmakers all offer futures betting. These markets allow you to bet on long term outcomes such as who will win the Grand Final.
As well as making the most of AFL premiership odds you can also bet on which teams will make the Finals Series, which player will be awarded the Brownlow Medal and who even who will win the wooden spoon.
Recommended Bookies for AFL Betting
If you are serious about making the most of the various AFL odds available to you, you may think that reading our AFL tipping is the most important step. Although that will hopefully help in your quest for profit, we’d suggest that it is even more important to carefully pick which bookies to do your betting with.
We’ll come onto which bookies we recommend shortly but first it’s worth pointing out the value of having more than one option. If you only do your AFL betting with one bookie you are limiting your choice of offers and of odds. If you have a few bookies to choose from you can take your pick of the best AFL odds and any AFL betting offers that come your way.
The first bookie we’d recommend considering is bet365. They are one of the biggest bookmakers in the world and make the most of their size and power to offer their customers an incredible amount of choice and value.
That is very much the case when it comes to Aussie rules where the bet365 AFL betting options are plentiful. As well as enough choice to satisfy even the most picky punter, bet365 have a host of long running AFL betting offers including a multi bet bonus while the AFL stats on the bet356 site are very useful.
Next on our list of recommended bookies is Unibet. Founded by Anders Strom with the aim of giving punters as much information as possible, Unibet work hard to provide an excellent service to AFL punters.
Unibet have a market offering that is as comprehensive as any of their competitors and their AFL odds are always fair. Unibet have a very generous welcome bonus and the offers keep coming long after you’ve opened your account which makes them such a valuable weapon in your betting arsenal.
Finally, we believe that William Hill do a great job with their AFL betting. Punters who enjoy betting on AFL matches can either get involved with William Hill’s impressive selection of markets before the action begins or in-play and the futures section of their AFL betting is very good.
If you want to test out what William Hill have to offer in terms of their AFL offering, you can make the most of the welcome bonus they offer new customers to try them out without having to risk your own money.
