AFL 2020 Betting Update: Still no love for Port Adelaide

Latest AFL odds

Only eight teams remain in what has been the most surprising and unpredictable AFL Premiership season to date. Here’s our take on some of the remaining AFL futures betting markets, with odds from Sportsbet.com.au.

Value with Port Adelaide despite clinical season

Punters are adamant Richmond will be the team to beat in the 2020 AFL finals, even though another competitor has enjoyed a more impressive season on paper.

Sitting at $6.50 despite winning the minor premiership, the Port Adelaide Power are severely underrated in our eyes, as they have only lost three games this season and have the second-best percentage in the league.

The Power’s first finals task will come against Geelong, and the Cats’ $5.50 premiership odds suggest they might start favourites despite having to travel to Adelaide Oval.

Outside of the top four, the Western Bulldogs have moved in to $23, pulling ahead of both the Magpies and Saints, while an uninspiring West Coast dropped from $11 to $15 after a slim win over the Kangaroos.

If the Power beat the Cats and advance straight to a preliminary final at Adelaide Oval, they could well bolt to the head of the AFL Premiership betting market.

Massive game from Petracca swings Brownlow betting

Lachie Neale looks to have wrapped up the 2020 Brownlow Medal with another best-on-ground performance against Carlton, but the market without the Brisbane Lions star is getting interesting.

The odds have jumped and scattered after an interesting weekend of football that saw Christian Petracca dominate Essendon while Travis Boak was relatively quiet against Collingwood.

A big game from Jack Steele could see him poll some late votes, but we can’t see St Kilda midfielder getting enough recognition early in the year to beat Boak or Petracca.

Patrick Dangerfield turned the Geelong game on its head when he went forward, taking some big marks and kicking three important goals in an eye-catching display.

We still think Boak is the best bet here, as the Power’s 14 wins to Melbourne’s nine should give him more chances to poll than Petracca.

Serong shortens for Rising Star with best performance yet

You couldn’t have scripted the final dash in the 2020 AFL Rising Star race any better, as the two leaders both put on a show in their round 18 games.

Noah Anderson started Sunday’s proceedings with 25 touches as the Gold Coast Suns went down to Hawthorn, but Caleb Serong wasn’t going down without a fight.

Even though most pundits would have locked in Serong weeks before Sunday’s matches, it played out as if the Fremantle gun knew he needed to outperform his biggest competitor in the Rising Star betting.

Collecting a season-high 25 disposals and laying six tackles against one of the strongest midfields in the league, Serong all but engraved his name on the Ron Evans Medal.

Despite their impressive campaigns, neither Anderson nor Serong were selected in this year’s AFL 22Under22 squad.

Rising Star candidates Izak Rankine and Max King did make the team, however, so there could be a twist in the tale.
