AFL Premiership Betting

AFL Premiership Betting Options

AFL premiership betting revolves around trying to find the winner of the Grand Final at the end of the season.

These markets are popular with AFL punters throughout the year as the favourite can change drastically as teams win and lose throughout the season. A team who puts consecutive wins together and gets on a ‘hot’ streak can see their odds reduce drastically.

Another market that is popular with punters on Grand final day is the Norm Smith medal. This award is given to the player who is judged, by an independent panel of football experts, to be best on ground in the AFL Grand Final. Norm smith was a famous Melbourne football identity who has been inducted into the AFL hall of Fame.

About The AFL Premiership

The AFL Grand Final is hosted at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and is traditionally staged on the last Saturday in September. The start time for the 2017 AFL grand Final is 2.30pm but there has been talk of changing it to a later timeslot to cater for TV audiences.
