For those who need a refresher on how our Brownlow voting system works, we assign 6 votes per game so that our total votes are the same as the official 3-2-1 system, however we break up those votes as we see fit across potentially more than three players. Some games are really tough to call which way the votes will go, so a better predictive model is to split performances and assign half points to each player where there is doubt. So for example if two players dominate and it's too hard to split their performance, they are given 2.5 votes each, with the remaining 1 vote given to another player(s). This will give us a predictive total closer to their true total, rather than guessing. We can then form a 'range' for each player (i.e. a min and max we think players can poll) with the thinking behind this that the variations from the half votes will even out over the long term.

AFL Round 13 Brownlow Votes Predictions
Adelaide (15.11.101) def Richmond (9.14.68)
The Crows captured a great home win over the Tigers to open up Round 13 on Thursday night. Brad Crouch was the dominant midfielder of the night, racking up 43 touches in the win while his brother Matt had 35. Josh Jenkins was heavily involved in the scoring, kicking four goals from seven scoring shots. Dustin Martin was easily the best of the losing Tigers outfit and will probably get the two votes here.
Brad Crouch - 3
Dustin Martin - 1.5
Josh Jenkins - 1.5
Essendon (14.12.96) def Hawthorn (11.11.77)
The Bombers picked up their second straight win on Friday night as they downed the Hawks by 19 points at Marvel Stadium. The Hawks had the top four disposal getters on the ground but it was the Essendon defence that was the difference. Michael Hurley will likely pick up the three votes after racking up 26 touches and 12 marks in the win while Zach Merrett was also impressive with 28 disposals and a goal. Jarman Impey was the pick of the Hawthorn players and will likely pick up the minor vote.
Michael Hurley - 3
Zach Merrett - 2
Jarman Impey - 1
Gold Coast (11.10.76) def by St Kilda (11.14.80)
The Saints got back on the winners list in Round 13 as they downed the Suns by four points up in Townsville. Crucial win for St Kilda which keeps them in touch with the top eight, despite a horrendous percentage. Jack Billings would have to be very unlucky not to pick up maximum votes here after a 33 disposal, 2 goal performance that carried his team over the line. Rowan Marshall continues his fantastic season with another strong performance while Anthony Miles and David Swallow were both impressive in the loss.
Jack Billings - 3
Rowan Marshall - 2
Anthony Miles - 0.5
David Swallow - 0.5
Fremantle (15.10.100) def Port Adelaide (12.7.79)
After trailing for the majority of the first three quarters, the Dockers stormed home in the final term, keeping Port Adelaide scoreless as they piled on 3.4 to run out 21 point winners. No arguments over who was best on ground here as Michael Walters had one of the better games of the season with 25 touches and 6 goals. Skipper Nat Fyfe was fantastic once again with 37 disposals, 22 of them contested while Travis Boak (36 disposals, 1 goal) was inarguably the best of the Power bunch.
Michael Walters - 3
Nat Fyfe - 2
Travis Boak - 1
Carlton (15.10.100) def by Western Bulldogs (15.13.103)
After trailing by as many as 34 points in the first half, the Blues kicked seven of eight goals through the latter stages of the second quarter and throughout the third to claim a seven-point lead. They then allowed six goals in a row to open the final term as the Western Bulldogs shot out to a 28-point lead. All looked lost for the Blues before they piled on five goals in a row for themselves but ultimately came up just short, losing by three points. Charlie Curnow was unstoppable with 7 goals for the match but will it be enough to get the three votes in a losing side? Josh Dunkley is his main competitor with a 41 disposal, 1 goal game while Jack Macrae and Patrick Lipinski were also impressive.
Josh Dunkley - 2.5
Charlie Curnow - 2.5
Jack Macrae - 0.5
Patrick Lipinski - 0.5
North Melbourne (10.8.68) def by Greater Western Sydney (14.7.91)
It was a fairly even contest throughout the first three quarters between North Melbourne and GWS, however, the Giants kicked away towards the end of the third quarter, ultimately kicking the seven of the last ten goals of the game to win by 23 points. The Giants now sit second on the ladder with a 9-4 record. There were a bunch of standout Giants in this one, Stepehen Coniglio was arguably best while the whips were cracking and finished the game with 28 touches and two goals. Toby Greene returned to the Giants line-up with a three-goal performance while Josh Kelly and Tim Taranto were also dominant in the midfield. Expect the Giants to claim all six votes here.
Stephen Coniglio - 3
Josh Kelly - 2
Tim Taranto - 0.5
Toby Greene - 0.5
