2018 Brownlow Medal Predictions & Leaderboard

September 22nd 2018, 4:05pm, By: Brownlow Bandit

Once again Before You Bet is back with our comprehensive 2018 AFL Brownlow vote predictions. We'll be providing weekly analysis including comments and our votes for every match of the 2018 season. Our followers have enjoyed great success over multiple seasons following our Brownlow projections using this system.

After Dustin Martin was a dominant winner last season, he is again among the favourites to take home "Charlie" this year, along with Geelong's Patrick Dangerfield and Gary Ablett, and Fremantle's Nat Fyfe. Hawk Tom Mitchell is also a prolific ball winner and set for another big season to be a contender.

Keep an eye on Before You Bet early in the week as we release our Brownlow vote predictions for the round. You will notice, that our Brownlow vote predictions look a little different than the official voting system. This is because we give 6 votes per game, but where applicable the votes are split with the idea being that over the long term these split votes even out and we are then given a 'range' of votes to work with for the current season.

There will be situations when the voting is clear-cut and the usual 3-2-1 is awarded, but when two players have both starred in a game and can't be split, 2.5 votes will be given per player. In games with multiple players fighting for the 1 or 2 votes, there will be 0.5 or 1.5 votes given with the same thinking that 'sometimes' those players will be awarded 1 vote, 2 votes or none.

For example: Patrick Dangerfield and Gary Ablett both have 33 touches, kick a goal and generally have similar impact on the result of a game. It's too hard to read the umpires mind, but we can be certain that these two players will be claiming the 3 and 2 votes. To combat the fact we are sometimes going to get this wrong, both players receive 2.5 votes which gives them a range of 2-3 votes. At the end of the season players like this then have a minimum and maximum range and if everything goes well, should finish somewhere in that range.

We hope this information will help you throughout the season to find value in betting markets with the best Australian sports betting sites, and end the season with plenty of profit!
