2020 AFL Premiership Season Preview
2020 AFL Premiership futures tips
Best Bet – Collingwood Magpies @ $8.00 – Bet Now
We tipped the Collingwood Magpies to win last season and we weren’t that far off. They finished in fourth position after the regular season, only one win from claiming the top spot.
We believe the Magpies are gradually improving as a side and the last two years are evident of that. Having lost in the Grand Final in 2018, the Magpies could have easily thrown in the towel last season, but they stuck on gamely.
With a team that features plenty of experience but also some talented youngsters, Collingwood is in a position to have another crack at the premiership.
Punters are getting value odds and the Magpies should give you a good sight throughout the season.
Next Best – Brisbane Lions @ $11 – Bet Now
2019 was quite an amazing effort from the Brisbane Lions and although it’s not easy to repeat that feat, we’re giving them a chance.
It was only a couple of years ago when the Lions were easy beats in the AFL. Fast forward to 2020 and they’re now legitimate title contenders.
They are coming off a 16-win season and although it’s tough to ask for the same effort, they’ll be better prepared for a run in the finals this season. Having the finals experience will do them plenty of good, so take the $11 on offer.
We’re expecting those odds to shorten as the season progresses.
Best Value – Essendon Bombers Top 8 @ $2.60 – Bet Now
Punters never know what to make of the Essendon Bombers but the $2.60 is value price from bookmakers.
They finished inside the Top 8 last season with 12 wins and 10 losses. We think they could improve on that season, as they had plenty of games slip away from their grasp.
With a more balanced attacking approach, the Bombers could give the well-favoured teams something to worry about this year. The Bombers are certainly good enough to beat the struggling sides, so their finals chances are good.
We’d love to see them in the thick of the action.
2020 AFL Coleman Medal tips
Best Bet – Ben Brown, North Melbourne Kangaroos @ $6 – Bet Now
The North Melbourne Kangaroo was a top choice last year and we’re sticking with the rangy forward.
Brown kicked 64 goals last season, which was only three behind the winner. He kicked 31 behinds, so if he converted a few more, he could have been the crowned champion.
However, punters are getting good value this time around as well. Bookies are offering $6 for Brown to win the title and we’re expecting improvement. His last three seasons have resulted in goal records of 63, 61, and 64.
He’ll be right around the mark once again.
Best Value – Lance Franklin, Sydney Swans @ $14 – Bet Now
It would be a huge story if Lance Franklin was to win the Coleman Medal, but we believe in the big man.
He scored only 27 goals last season but played only 10 games. He hasn’t played a full season since 2017 and he scored an incredible 73 goals. If he’s able to stay healthy throughout the season, there’s no reason why he can’t win.
He’s a four-time Coleman Medal winner and has set records for goals scored throughout his career. He kicked 113 goals in 2008, 82 in 2011, and 81 in 2016. He’s a scoring machine and we’d love to see him back at his best.
2020 Brownlow Medal tips
Best Bet – Patrick Dangerfield, Geelong Cats @ $8.50 – Bet Now
We have tipped Patrick Dangerfield to win the 2018 and 2019 Brownlow Medal. We see no reason to jump off his back in 2020.
The 2016 Brownlow Medal winner received 35 votes to win and he got close to that mark last season with 27. He only needs to play at a slightly higher level to score his second Brownlow Medal.
His statistics in 2019 weren’t too far off those in 2016, so with slight improvement, he could be the one favoured at the end of the season.
Best Value – Patrick Cripps, Carlton Blues @ $6.50 – Bet Now
Some punters might not see the value with the $6.50 odds, but Patrick Cripps is a good pick for the 2020 Brownlow Medal.
The Carlton Blues star scored 26 votes last season and because he’s young, he’s only going to gain popularity as his career progresses.
His confidence is growing and the bookmakers have taken notice. He’s the current favourite to win the medal and we wouldn’t put it past the 24-year-old. He has all the ability to become one of the best in the AFL and they would love to crown a rising star come October.
2020 AFL Least Wins tip
There is only one team backed to have the least wins in 2020 and that’s the Gold Coast Suns.
They are the raging-hot $1.62 favourites to win the coveted title and considering their premiership odds of $301, we’re not surprised to see this. They’re coming off another poor season and there doesn’t appear to be any direction at the club.
Throw this option into your multi bets and although the odds are short, it’s not lacking in value.
