AFL BETTING: HOW TO BET ON AFL


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

The Australian Football League (AFL) is the heart and soul of Australia. It’s the number one sport in the country and provides the sporting heartbeat of a proud sports loving nation. From remote outback Northern Territory to the southern tip of Tasmania, it seems footy is only getting bigger and bigger.

AFL betting is seeing a big rise in punters. Especially online. No longer do you need to pop out during your work lunch break to visit a TAB. The days of queuing up to place a bet on your footy team are well and truly a thing of the past. If you love your footy, you can now use online betting sites like Ladbrokes, Sportsbet, Neds and Pointsbet to place your footy bets.

AFL betting is evolving all the time. In the past, you just selected the AFL team you thought was going to win and bet in the head-to-head market or possibly on the winning margin of each game. Now there’s a host of different AFL bets you can place on teams, players, margins, inpidual awards, Grand Final winner and more. You can bet on inpidual games, the AFL premiership, Brownlow MedalColeman MedalRising Star and even in some novelty markets.

You can combine your bets into a Same Game Multi now, a method of punting that is proving extremely popular.

Fancy an AFL bet on something a little more obscure? How about betting on the first player to kick a goal? Or even the player to get most disposals for the game? The list goes on. There are also plenty of offers from the bookmakers each weekend to take advantage of.

AFL BETTING TIPS: HOW TO BET ON MATCHES


There are many ways to bet on AFL matches, but we guide you through some of the most popular.

HEAD-TO-HEAD: Head-to-Head betting is the easiest way to have a punt on most sports matches. Simply select who you think will win the game and if they emerge victorious so do you.

LINE BETTING and HANDICAP BETTING: Line betting is when the bookmaker handicaps a team by setting a specific margin with the aim on making the game even between the two sides. For example, if the bookmaker believes Team A is a 10-point better team than Team B, they will handicap Team A by 10 points. The line therefore becomes Team A to beat Team B by more than 10 points or Team B to come within 10 points of Team A. Then both outcomes become equal odds, which is ultimately around $1.90 the majority of the time.

WINNING MARGINS: Margin betting is when the bookmaker breaks up the number of possible end results by putting in a margin. The punter must therefore select the correct result as well as the correct margin. For example, if you believe Team A will beat Team B and want to also bet on the margin, you will have to correctly pick how many points will be between the two sides at the end of full-time. So if you think Hawthorn will win in a margin of 1-39 points you’d select that option. Or maybe you think Richmond will win a game by 40+ points.

TOTAL POINTS: Total betting is a popular option. The Total has two sides, the Over and the Under. The ‘Total’ is the number of combined points between the two teams. For example, a game might be set at 147.5 points. This means if the Bombers beat the Eagles 88-62, the total will have gone over the expected total point points and the Over will be paid out. Alternatively, if the total score ends at 70-65 the Under will be paid out.

FIRST GOALSCORER: This option allows you to choose which player on either team you believe will kick the first goal of the game. You can also bet on the last goalscorer in most games as well as anytime goalscorer.
