Just like that, Round 10 of the 2020 AFL season is in the books, quicker than a flash! There were a couple of tough matches for Brownlow votes, but a couple where some 2020 Brownlow contenders started to make a run up the leaderboard. Let's take a closer look at the matches from during the week with our Round 10 Brownlow vote predictions.

For those who need a refresher on how our Brownlow vote predictor 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.

The bizarre 2020 AFL season continued with Round 10 kicking off on a Monday night with seven matches squeezed into the midweek before a new round kicks off on the weekend! Footy Frenzy is in full swing! It was an interesting round for Brownlow votes with Lachie Neale an outside chance for votes while challengers Dustin Martin and Jack Steele will be in the thick of the votes. Let's check out our vote predictions for each match of Round 10.
The Power continue to surge in 2020 as they overcame a wasteful Western Bulldogs team. Zac Butters broke the game open in the third quarter and ended with 24 disposals in his best game for the club. Tom Rockliff (23 disposals, 15 tackles) was also strong in the middle while Peter Ladhams (32 hitouts, 18 disposals, 5 clearances, 1 goal) won the ruck battle. Tom Liberatore (24 disposals) and Jack Macrae (27 disposals, 7 tackles, 5 clearances) were best for the Dogs.
Zac Butters – 3
Tom Rockliff – 2
Tom Liberatore – 0.5
Jack Macrae – 0.5
The Tigers flexed their muscle to be too strong for the Lions who were also extremely wasteful with their opportunities in front of goal. Dustin Martin was at his brilliant best with 24 disposals, with Shai Bolton (24 disposals, 6 clearances, 1 goal) and Liam Baker (26 disposals) also very good. Lachie Neale (26 disposals, 5 clearances) and Jarryd Lyons (26 disposals, 5 clearances) were tireless for the Lions in a losing effort.
Dustin Martin – 3
Shai Bolton – 2
Liam Baker – 0.5
Lachie Neale – 0.5
The Cats were in cruise control as they easily accounted for the Kangaroos in the first match of a Wednesday night double header. Cam Guthrie continued his good form with 29 disposals and 6 clearances, with Sam Menegola (28 disposals, 1 goal) and Jack Steven (21 disposals) also good in the middle. Up forward, the Cats were dangerous with Tom Hawkins (14 disposals, 7 marks, 3 goals) and Gryan Miers (11 disposals, 4 goals) hitting the scoreboard.
Cam Guthrie – 3
Sam Menegola – 2
Tom Hawkins – 0.5
Gryan Miers – 0.5
The Crows hung in there early, but Melbourne kicked away in the last quarter to record an important win to leave the Crows at 0-10. Clayton Oliver was a clear best-on-ground with 34 disposals, including 22 contested, 11 clearances, 6 tackles and a goal in a stellar performance. Jack Viney (22 disposals, 8 clearances, 2 goals) was also very good, while Christian Salem (26 disposals) and Steven May (16 disposals, 5 marks) patrolled across half-back. Matt Crouch (27 disposals, 8 tackles, 7 clearances) was best for the Crows but he didn’t get much help.
Clayton Oliver – 3
Jack Viney – 2
Christian Salem – 0.5
Matt Crouch – 0.5
The Pies struggled but did enough to get a hard-fought win over the Swans. Some Josh Daicos magic sealed the game with a Goal of the Year contender to cap off w big game with 25 disposals. Taylor Adams (29 disposals, 1 goal) and Brayden Sier (23 disposals, 8 clearances) were busy in the middle, while Adam Treloar was on fire with 25 disposals before going off with a hamstring injury in the third quarter. Jake Lloyd was best for the Swans with 25 disposals.
Josh Daicos – 3
Taylor Adams – 2
Adam Treloar - 1
A great game between the Suns and the Saints went back and forth before the Saints did enough to get the four points. Jack Billings (27 disposals) and Jack Steele (21 disposals, 8 marks, 5 tackles, 2 goals) were ever-reliable while Dan Butler finished their work with 4 goals from his 13 disposals. Hugh Greenwood (22 disposals, 5 tackles, 6 clearances) and Touk Miller (18 disposals, 7 tackles, 5 clearances, 2 goals) might be a chance for a vote for the Suns.
Jack Billings – 2.5
Jack Steele – 2.5
Dan Butler – 0.5
Touk Miller – 0.5
The Giants fought back from 29 points down in slippery conditions against the Bombers to record a very brave victory that keeps them in touch with the top 8. It was a contested game and that suited Tim Taranto who was back to some if his best football with 32 disposals, and he was well supported by Stephen Coniglio (26 disposals, 6 clearances, 1 goal). Zach Merrett picked up 33 disposals to be best for the Dons, while Michael Hurley (23 disposals, 8 marks) and Jordan Ridley (17 disposals, 8 marks) were hard to pass in defence.
Tim Taranto – 3
Zach Merrett – 2
Stephen Coniglio - 1
