Footy is back and that means the BYB team are once again keeping busy with our comprehensive coverage of the 2019 AFL season. A big part of that is the Brownlow Medal and we'll again be providing round-by-round tracking for the 2019 Brownlow Medal. Our Brownlow Medal predictions have been popular in previous seasons as punters use our rolling Brownlow Medal leaderboard and tracker to assist with their Brownlow Medal betting throughout the season.
Last year our system was on the money with Hawthorn's Tom Mitchell a clear Brownlow winner. However a preseason injury has ruled Mitchell out for the season which means that "Charlie" will be finding a different home in 2019. Early favourites include the usual suspects with Nat Fyfe, Patrick Dangerfield, Dusty Martin and young stud Patrick Cripps leading the pack before the ball is bounced this season.
Keep an eye on Before You Bet early in the week as we release our Brownlow vote predictions for the round just gone. 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 our votes are split however we determine, 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 confidently 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!
