Essendon Bombers odds

Essendon Bombers AFL betting

No club has enjoyed more VFL/AFL success than Essendon. The Bombers have won 16 top-flight premierships, including the very first way back in 1987. Only Carlton, their oldest rivals, have as many pennants in their clubrooms.

Times have been tough at Windy Hill since the turn of the millennium. After a record-breaking premiership year in 2000, a series of poor recruiting decisions (both on and off the field) saw Essendon vanish into the mires of mid-table mediocrity. Just as things were starting to turn around, a drawn-out doping saga brought the club to its knees.

Now the mist is clearing and a bright future lies ahead for the Dons. They have a respected coach in John Worsfold, a young captain in Dyson Heppell, and a list bursting with top-end talent in all positions.

How high can these Bombers fly? Let’s see what the bookies can tell us about Essendon’s prospects in the upcoming AFL Premiership season.
