AFL – Brownlow Medal 2016


Brownlow Medal 2016

Ok, so the Monday night before the AFL Grand Final is upon us and it’s Brownlow night!

Expect the usual awkward interviews, Bruce gushing, old-fashioned red carpet reporting (more cringing) and a few lads getting on the beers.. and of course, a win for Paddy at last

There may be some surprises but Dangerfield is a raging favourite and rightly so

My personal vote prediction is as follows:
Dangerfield 33
Parker 24
Martin 23
Mitchell 22
Sloane 21 (ineligible)
Steven, Shuey 20
Priddis, Selwood, Bontempelli 19
Hannebery, Ward 18
Gray 17…

I was more confident with Dustin Martin 2nd but have checked and can see Parker sneaking in there; I wouldn’t be surprised if this was reversed however – also not too sure about Selwood and Bonts votes (again, can see them being a few higher and could be good top 5 shouts)

I’ve gone with these however and having backed Paddy a long time ago, I’ve done some other multis salt dough handprint (top 3, top 4)

The 4 named above I have all-ways at 12.0 with sportsbet (risking Mitchell as the 4th although that could be any of the other named) are doing a huge amount of request-a-bet markets so there’s plenty in there although none to recommend as the obvious bets are way too short; they do have some H2H markets and a couple of shorties that should roll in are Hannebery over Buddy Franklin (1.30) and Priddis over Coniglio (1.44)

I’ve also gone with Shuey top Eagles votes at 1.90, Gibbs top Blues at 1.90, and Bonts top 5 at 2.0

Good luck all!
