Sydney Swans AFL betting

The Sydney Swans became an entity in 1982, when the then-VFL relocated South Melbourne, long known as the Bloods, to form the first non-Victorian team in the competition we now know as the Australian Football League.

After many decades of misery, the Swans have emerged as perennial contenders. They have played in five grand finals for two flags since 2005, when they ended a 72-year premiership drought with a nail-biting victory over the West Coast Eagles.

But after a meek exit in the first week of the 2018 finals series, there are growing doubts about Sydney’s future. The squad is ageing, premiership stars have moved on and years of sustained success has left the club with minimal leverage in the draft.

Those concerns have become a reality, with the Swans finishing in the bottom four in each of the past two seasons. However, the depth of young talent on Sydney’s list suggests a return to the top end of the table might not be far away.

How will John Longmire and his charges fare this year? Let’s check in with the bookies and see how the Swans are shaping up in the major AFL betting markets for 2021.

Swans players to watch in 2021

Isaac Heeney AFL bettingIsaac Heeney
Born: 5/5/1996
Games: 108
Goals: 112
Position: Half-forward

For talent alone, there are few players in the competition who belong in the same bracket as Isaac Heeney. Is this the year he finally shrugs off his injury issues, shows some consistency and cracks into the upper crust of AFL stars?

Lance Franklin AFL bettingLance Franklin
Born: 30/1/1987
Games: 300
Goals: 944
Position: Forward

Can Buddy reach 1,000 AFL goals before his body gives out on him? The superstar forward is only 56 majors short of that magical milestone, but a tally of 29 games in the past two years – including none in 2020 – suggests time is running out.

Papley AFL bettingTom Papley
Born: 13/7/1996
Games: 99
Goals: 146
Position: Forward

If not for some erratic finishing, Tom Papley might well have taken out the Coleman Medal in 2020. The livewire forward is an absolute nuisance for opposition defences and can create chances out of nothing, so he is sure to be a key figure for the Swans again this year.
