Favorite to win the AFL Grand Final
Following a dominant 81-50 victory over Geelong in the 2020 Grand Final, Richmond has the best AFL odds at +450. The Tigers finished third in the ladder during the regular season, but their Grand Final victory was their second straight title and third in the past four seasons.
However, Richmond has seen Melbourne draw even with them in recent weeks as they sit tied atop the board at +450.
Port Adelaide (+500), which finished atop the ladder last season, is third on the odds board and close behind the top two sides. They too sit in a tie, sharing their spot with the Western Bulldogs.
Rounding out a tightly contested Top-5 is last year's runner-up, Geelong, at +600.

How to bet AFL
Aussie rules betting has plenty of options, from side and totals to line bets, props, margin betting and futures.
Futures betting, also known as an outright, allows you to place wagers on the future results of a competition. And the biggest Aussie Rules event is the AFL Grand Final. The easiest futures bet to find in the AFL betting market is the winner of the AFL Grand Final which is scheduled towards the end of every September at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
AFL Futures odds will usually look like this:
- Richmond +333
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $333 if Richmond wins the AFL Grand Final. If it's close to the end of the season and there has been one very dominant footy team, you might see them with a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds.
- Hawthorn -110
This means that if you wagered on Hawthorn at that price, you would need to bet $110 to profit $100 on Hawthorn winning the AFL Premiership.
