AFL BETTING: ROUND 6
AFL SEASON BETTING PREVIEW
See below for some of the most popular AFL bet types.
AFL Head-to-Head Betting
Head-to-head odds are simple and feature a price on both teams facing off in a selected AFL game to win the match. The same price can be offered if the two clubs are deemed an equal chance of winning, but usually there is a favourite at shorter AFL odds. These markets are affected by things like lead-up form across the season, their record at the venue, whether they are playing at home or away and the AFL team selections for the match.
AFL Line Betting
Line betting is the second most popular type of AFL odds on offer for each game. The line is the winning spread of points a team must either win or lose by for that bet to pay out. For example, if West Coast are at +40.5 @ $1.87 that means they must beat their rivals in that game by more than 40.5 points for you to collect on the bet.
AFL Season Pricing
Ladbrokes were the first online sports bookmaker in Australia to offer exclusive AFL season pricing with head-to-head betting markets available for all 23 rounds of the home-and-away season. These markets give supporters an excellent opportunity to back their favourite AFL team across the full season. AFL season pricing is updated each round so checking back on a weekly basis is key. We have these markets available By Rounds or By Team to make it even easier to follow your club.
AFL Premiership Betting
The futures AFL Premiership betting odds list the prices on offer for each of the AFL teams to win the annual Grand Final. The markets are affected by the round-by-round AFL results and usually the teams sitting the highest on the AFL ladder are at the shortest price to win the competition.
AFL Minor Premiership Betting
The AFL Minor Premiership odds are the markets on offer for each Australian Rules football club to win that season’s Minor Premiership and finish the regular 23 round season at the top of the AFL Ladder. Since 1991 the AFL Minor Premiers have been awarded the McClelland Trophy.

A further 41 finished runners-up losing the Grand Final and just 14 didn’t make a Grand Final appearance. Collingwood have won the most VFL/AFL Minor Premierships with 19 in total.
