Post by TaylorMade »

Must submit prediction before the ball is bounced for Round 1, teams must place in order from 1 to 4.

I like to live dangerously, so ill lock mine in now


1. Collingwood Magpies
2. West Coast Eagles
3. Adelaide Crows
4. Essendon Bombers



Winner gets a prestige bottle of wine from 'Skids'

Good Luck

Wait... Stop!! Change the title!!!

Go back and predict the whole ladder, not just the top 4.

Here are last year's predictions:

That's too hard, if I get it right then I feel I may never achieve anything else in my life. And it will cancel out any chance I have of winning tattslotto :)

Sportsbet have a 'AFL teams future multi'. First time ever you can try select which teams will make the 8 in a multi bet. Because they know how hard it will be this year, more than ever.

What odds do they offer for that multi-bet?
Need to be careful here. Do they mean at the end of the finals or the end of H&A?

It depends on who you pick. You can select 8 out of 8 teams if you like. to win flag / make the 4 / make the 8. They close market when round 1 starts and they payout at the end of H&A.

You can get some really juicy odds.

(e.g) Coll to win flag - Ess, Ade, WC to make top4 = 100-1. If I want to increase the odds I can try pick which other teams will make the 8.

But that's not the order, right? So that's easier...

I don't see it at https://www.sportsbet.com.au/betting/au ... -rules/afl

Am I supposed to go to https://www.sportsbet.com.au/multibuilder ?

And do they have unders/overs (line) for number of wins (for each club)?

Its called 'AFL Team Futures Multi'. It might be in Futures. TAB also has it this year for the first time. With TAB you can just print out a ticket if you prefer.

Yes, they don't have to be in order

no, if you want a 2-8 leg multi you can only select 3 options for each team. Win the flag / make the 4 / make the 8.

I think its pretty cool promotion, it sure would make the season more exciting in terms of watching other teams.

And they payout at the end of H&A if you haven't selected anyone for the flag.

if you still cant find it, sometimes it disappears when they alter the odds. But it will be back in couple hours. They close the market once first game starts.

haha, let me know how you go. If your game enough to try pick the whole 8, along with who makes the top 4, then im pretty sure the odds would be around 1000-1

I was poking around for line betting for the whole season.
AT TAB, under 'Handicap', it has '2019 AFL Season Handicap
Adelaide (+6)
Brisbane (+14)'
etc.
(all at $15).

How does this work?

Just had a squiz, I have no clue. Would love to know though? It must be for Minor Premiership

You might be on to something here

It says regular season only and Dead Head rules apply, whatever that means
