With AFLX having taken place and the JLT Community Series now underway, it’s time to take a look at the AFL season proper and one of the most popular betting markets in the league, the Brownlow Medal.
Whilst the previous two winners Dustin Martin (2017) and Patrick Dangerfield (2016) may seem to be the first players that come to mind when it comes to Brownlow contenders, another former champion has been getting a fair deal of attention with the punters.
According to TAB, 2015 Brownlow medallist Nat Fyfe has been the best backed player in the league with the bookmaker.
The Fremantle superstar has been out of the spotlight in recent seasons after winning the 2015 medal, only playing five games in 2016 due to recovery from a fractured leg he had previously broken in the 2015 preliminary final. This has coincided with Fremantle drifting down the ladder finishing in 16th position in 2016 and 14th position in 2017.
It is expected Fyfe will return to the form that saw him one of the faces of the league and as captain guide the Fremantle outfit back up to finals contention this season.
He is currently a $7 third favourite for the award behind Martin and Dangerfield who are $5 joint favourites.
Other players to feature amongst the leaders include Marcus Bontempelli at $12 and Tom Mitchell who is available at $14.
If you believe former two-time winner Gary Ablett can secure a third medal on his return to the Geelong Cats, you can also get him at $14.
The current favourites in the Brownlow Medal winner market are as follows:
Dustin Martin $5.00
Patrick Dangerfield $5.00
Nat Fyfe $7.00
Marcus Bontempelli $12.00
Josh Kelly $12.00
Gary Ablett $14.00
Rory Sloane $14.00
Tom Mitchell $14.00
Josh P Kennedy $17.00
