Port Adelaide entered the AFL in 1997, joining the Adelaide Crows as the second side from South Australia in the national competition.
The club’s predecessors, the Port Adelaide Magpies, have a proud history of success in the South Australian National Football League, and it took the Power just seven seasons to translate that success to the AFL with a maiden premiership in 2004.
The pickings since that history-making flag have been slim. Coach Ken Hinkley has taken Port Adelaide as far as preliminary finals in 2014 and 2020, but the Power have failed to capture that elusive second premiership.
Having topped the table last year, the Power will enter 2021 as one of the teams to beat. Let’s take a look at the odds and see where Port Adelaide sit in the major AFL betting markets.

Best Port Adelaide bets for the 2021 AFL season
Where are the best Port Adelaide bets in the AFL futures markets that matter?
Click on the tabs below to get more analysis on these markets:
- Port Adelaide finished top of the AFL ladder in 2020 but didn’t make it to the big dance, falling to Geelong in the prelims. There is no doubting that Ken Hinkley’s Power will be among the contenders again in 2021.
- The Power was the best side in the home-and-away rounds last season, so there will be plenty of punters backing them to finish in the top four again this year. There will be competition for spots with Richmond, Brisbane, Geelong and a few potential improvers, but Port should be there or thereabouts.
- Travis Boak is aging like a fine wine and will start 2021 as Port Adelaide’s top pick in the Brownlow Medal betting. Ollie Wines took some big strides last year and will also attract plenty of interest.
Port Adelaide players to watch in 2020
Ollie Wines missed the first few games of the 2020 season with a shoulder complaint, but he finished the year as one of the best performers in a team that topped the table. Port fans will be hoping he can deliver more of the same in 2021.
After a brilliant debut campaign in 2019, Rozee struggled to live up to the hype last season while the likes of Xavier Duursma and Zak Butters flourished. We know how gifted this guy is, but he will need to lift his game to stay relevant in a strong Port Adelaide side.
Charlie Dixon was a big reason why the Power bolted up the ladder in 2020, terrorising defences with his powerful overhead marking and brute force in the contest. If he can produce more of the same and straighten up his goalkicking a touch, Port will go far this year.
