Although the AFL is undoubtedly a team sport and getting results as a team is the most important thing, the Brownlow Medal is an individual honour which any player would love to receive. For this reason, Brownlow Medal betting is a popular part of betting on the AFL in general, and many people enjoy placing a bet on who they think will take this prestigious accolade either at the start of the season, or as the season progresses. Officially, the award is given to the 'fairest and best' player of the season although there are certainly other criteria to consider when placing a Brownlow bet.
If you are considering betting on the Brownlow Medal, you should certainly take a look at which players have won the award in the past. Typically, midfielders tend to win the Medal as they are often very influential within an AFL team and receive plenty of praise. More midfielders have won the Brownlow Medal than any other position, and in fact, as of 2012, midfielders have won the award every year since 2007. Therefore, when it comes to Brownlow Medal betting, it makes sense to choose a midfield player who plays an influential role in one of the top teams. For the 2012 season, many people will be backing the 2010 winner Chris Judd once more as he continues to play a very important role for Carlton.
Of course, you do not need to try to predict the winner of the Brownlow Medal only at the start of the season. Betting is usually open for the duration of the season, although of course, the later you leave it the more form there will be to go on and the shorter the odds will become. Because at the start of the season, Brownlow Medal winner betting odds are at their longest, with perhaps four or five players tied as joint favourite for the award, it may be good sense to place one or more each way bets. Some bookmakers will not allow you to do this, therefore it is a good idea to have more than one bookmaker account so that you can spread your bets around. Also be careful of picking players who may be slightly on the decline from their peak years, as not only may there form be dipping, but older players are also more prone to injuries which could lead to them missing important matches.
