AFL Ladder 2018

The 2018 AFL Ladder shows the eighteen professional Australian Rules Football teams in the annual AFL Premiership in ranking order from 1 – 18 based on competition points achieved across the 23-week home-and-away season. AFL Teams receive four premiership points for a win and two for a draw.

The AFL Ladder is the best way to see where your team sits for the season.

Also helping determine positions on the AFL season ladder along with competition points is ‘percentage’, which is the ratio of points scored – points conceded over the season.

The club sitting number one on the ladder after the Premiership season’s 23 AFL rounds are the Minor Premiers and are awarded the McClelland Trophy.

The AFL Premiership ladder determines the Top 4 and Top 8 teams that will play off in the September finals with the ultimate aim of taking out the Grand Final held in late September or early October.

AFL betting is available on where each club will finish on the ladder with markets open on teams to ‘Make the Top 8’ or ‘Make the Top 4’. AFL McClelland Trophy betting odds are also on offer even before the season starts on the Minor Premiership.

Where teams are positioned on the AFL ladder has an impact on the round-by-round Australian Rules betting odds throughout the season as well as the futures markets open on the AFL Grand Final.

Teams highest on the ladder during the home-and-away AFL season dominate the overall AFL Premiership betting markets.
