AFL Grand Final Betting Tips - Same-game multi's paying $141 and $79 on this weekend's AFL Grand Final

  • The AFL Grand Final is here and we've picked out a couple of same-game multi's that could get you rich. Check out our selections.

The 2018 AFL Grand Final is fast approaching and there are plenty of betting options available on the decider, including the combination of single bets into a same game multi. 

The MCG clash will be played out between West Coast and Collingwood and here are a couple of options to consider, depending on which side of the ledger you stand on. 

First Goalscorer Josh Kennedy- Super Margin West Coast 20-29 - Josh Kennedy Most Goals $141

West Coast head in as slight underdogs in the head to head betting but have defeated Collingwood twice this season and have done little wrong in their two finals. 

Their two power forwards in Josh Kennedy and Jack Darling are both in fine form. The Eagles have played 13 times this year with those two both in the side and have won all 13. They can trouble Collingwood with their dominance in the air with Kennedy and Darling. Lets not also forget the intercept-marking king, Jeremy McGovern, who should patrol the backline. 

Provided that the Eagles don't get stage fright like they did in 2015, the premiership cup may very well be headed west. A recent finals trends is that margins have generally been 20 points and above. West Coast's two wins against the Magpies have been by 33 and 16 this year so we expect something around the 20-29 point margin. 

Look to combine this result with some of the markets focussed on goal kicking, including first goalscorer and most goals. Our go-to man is the West Coast spearhead, Josh Kennedy. The former Blue has booted 40 goals from 16 games this season, averaging 3.1 per game, which is more than any other player in the game. He has kicked three or more goals on eight occasions this year and has booted five in the two encounters against Collingwood. 

That figure should possibly be more as he was rusty in his return from injury in the Qualifying Final, kicking 2.4, which is down on his usual accuracy rate of 69%. In terms of being the first goalscorer, Kennedy found himself in the right place at the right time in the Preliminary Final against Melbourne, kicking the Eagles first and he was on fire early before ending up with four goals for the game. 

He is generally a very good set shot and with the extra responsibility in the Grand Final he is likely to step up if he can get his hands on the ball early on. 

First Goalscorer Mason Cox - Collingwood -7.5- Most Disposals Group A Steele Sidebottom $79

For those looking to a Collingwood win in the Grand Final, there are a stack of statistical reasons that suggest the Magpies can get the job done. Nathan Buckley's side are seen to be peaking at the right time and will be looking to extend the dominance of Victorian sides in recent Grand Finals. 

The past five decider's have seen a Victorian side play an interstate side and all have gone the way of the Vics. In the current final eight system there have been five times that the Qualifying Final combatants have faced each other again in the Grand Final. 

The loser of the Qualifying Final has turned the tables in all of those auguring well for the black and white. For some value, take the Magpies to cover the 7.5 point line that has been set and combine this with first goalscorer and disposal markets. 

Two players to consider for first goalscorer are Jordan de Goey and Mason Cox. I have a slight learning towards the big man in Cox, given his ability to pluck a contested grab from nowhere. The early parts of the Grand Final are traditionally a bit of a slog, which may play into his hands, rather than a leading type in de Goey. 

In disposal markets it is hard to go past Steele Sidebottom, who is in career best form. The Brownlow Medal runner-up has averaged over 30 disposals per game this season, ranking No.1 at Collingwood and slightly behind West Coast's Andrew Gaff, who will be absent on Saturday due to suspension. 

He comes off a 41 possession haul in the Preliminary Final and is a noted big game performer. Expect him to find plenty of the ball in this year's decider.
