The West Coast Eagles are the powerhouse club of Western Australia.
Since joining the competition in 1987, the Eagles have won four AFL Grand Finals from six appearances and fielded some of the greatest players in the modern history of the game.
West Coast failed to defend their title in 2019, bowing out in the semi-finals. The question is: where do they sit in the major 2020 AFL betting markets?

Best West Coast Eagles bets for the 2020 AFL season
Where are the best Eagles bets in the AFL futures markets that matter?
Click on the tabs below to get more analysis on these markets:
- Some late-season wobbles hurt the Eagles last season, but they look primed to bounce back in 2020. The addition of Tim Kelly strengthens what was already a powerful West Coast midfield, while the draft picks they gave up to get him suggest the club is circling another flag.
- West Coast just slid out of the top four last year, but most footy pundits are predicting they will finish somewhere near the summit this season. If their stars stay fit, there is no reason the Eagles cannot take out the minor premiership.
- The Eagles have a few promising candidates in this year’s Brownlow Medal betting, but none more so than Tim Kelly. The silky midfielder polled 24 votes in a star-studded Geelong side last season and should hit the ground running in his native WA.
- West Coast gave up picks in the first, second and third rounds of the 2019 draft to secure Tim Kelly’s signature, so it should surprise nobody that they have no contenders in theLast season saw a changing of the guard as Jack Darling usurped Josh Kennedy as West Coast’s primary avenue to goal. However, closer inspection of the numbers reveal that Kennedy might have matched Darling’s 59 majors if he had kicked a little straighter. While both are excellent options in the Coleman Medal betting, the value about Kennedy at $15 in the preseason markets is impossible to ignore.

West Coast players to watch in 2020
Has anyone ever enjoyed a better start their AFL career than this guy? Geelong wanted to keep him, but West Coast put everything on the trade table this time around. If he keeps doing what he’s been doing, Kelly will go close in the Brownlow Medal voting this year.
Nic Nat has played only 35 games in the past three seasons and missed out on West Coast’s premiership win in 2018. Imagine what the Eagles might achieve if they get something like a full campaign out of their superstar ruckman?
Many were caught off-guard when Shannon Hurn vacated the West Coast captaincy last year, but nobody was surprised to see Shuey named as his successor. The 2018 Norm Smith Medal winner will lead from the front as the Eagles chase a second flag in three years.
