Melbourne Demons odds

Melbourne Demons

Melbourne FC boasts a legacy as rich as any sporting organisation on the planet. Founded in May 1859, it is the world’s oldest professional football club of any variety.

MFC’s recent history is far less auspicious. Since the infamous sacking of six-time premiership coach Norm Smith in 1965, the once-mighty Demons have claimed the wooden spoon seven times and played in only two grand finals. With the Western Bulldogs’ fairytale win in 2016, Melbourne now hold the longest active streak without a premiership.

However, there is an air of optimism around the club these days. Membership is at an all-time high after Simon Goodwin steered a young, talented team to the preliminary finals in 2018, and many are predicting even better things from the Dees this year.

The question is: where do Melbourne sit in the race for the 2019 AFL Premiership title? Let’s find out.

Demons players to watch in 2019

Steven May AFL bettingSteven May
Born: 10/1/1992
Games: 123
Goals: 21
Position: Defender

Is this the signing that puts the Dees into premiership contention? May was co-captain at the Gold Coast Suns for two years and brings invaluable leadership skills along with his intercept marking, strength in the contest and all-round defensive nous.

Angus Brayshaw AFL bettingAngus Brayshaw
Born: 9/1/1996
Games: 58
Goals: 28
Position: Midfielder

It wasn’t long ago that Brayshaw’s career was on the line after he suffered a series of concussions. Now, following a breakout year in which he ran third in the Brownlow, the gutsy on-baller is a vital component in Melbourne’s premiership push.

Christian Petracca AFL bettingChristian Petracca
Born: 4/1/1996
Games: 63
Goals: 57
Position: Half-forward

Petracca might be the most talented player on Melbourne’s list, but he is yet to match his obvious ability with the consistency required of an AFL footballer. If it all comes together for him this year, the rest of the competition had better watch out.
