Footy is back and that means the Before You Bet team are back again to bring you our 2020 Brownlow Medal vote predictions! A big part of our 2020 AFL content is the Brownlow Medal and we'll again be providing round-by-round tracking for the 2020 AFL 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 it was Fremantle's Nat Fyfe who polled extremely well to take home "Charlie" in a bit of a surprise result. Will Fyfe be back to win it again or will a new contender rise from the pack? Hawthorn's Tom Mitchell won it in 2018 and he'll be back this season after missing 2019 with a leg injury. Patrick Dangerfield, Dusty Martin and Patrick Cripps are likely to also be among the favourites entering the 2020 AFL season.
Keep an eye on Before You Bet early in the week as we release our Brownlow vote predictions for the round just completed. 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!
