Online AFL Betting
In Australia, the AFL (Australian Rules Football) is considered to be one of the most popular team sports in country. The fast-paced physical action that each game provides, makes it a perfect spectator sport with thousands of dedicated fans attending each game. A major AFL game can attract millions of views around the world. It is no wonder then that AFL betting has become one of the biggest online betting markets. With up to eight games played each week during the regular season, the AFL provides punters with plenty of betting action.
With Aussie rules betting, pretty much all of the AFL bets will be on the premiership games. The AFL premiership consists of a preseason and a regular season which runs from March to September each year. The AFL regular season features 23 rounds played at home and away. The top eight teams will then compete in four-round finals. The final two qualifying teams will then compete for the Premiership Cup in the Grand Final.
Basic AFL Bets
AFL premiership live betting continues throughout the year. In each game, punters have plenty opportunities to get in on the betting action. For anyone just starting out, the easiest bet to place is a simple head to head bet. This is where a punter predicts the winner of a match. Totals betting is also very popular. This is where the online bookmaker sets a score total. Punters must then predict if the score will be over or under the sore predicted. If the teams are unevenly matched, the online bookmakers will offer line mobile betting. This is where a point difference will be added to the underdog score to even out the betting.

Futures and Exotic Bets
At the start of the AFL season, punters can place futures bets on which team they think will win the premiership title. Other AFL bets include which player will win the Brownlow Medal, the NAB rising star award or the Coleman Medal. Leading up to a big game, punters can choose from a range of exotic bets including which player will score the first points, who will be leading after the first quarter and what the winning margin will be at the end of the match.
The AFL sports betting odds will give punters a good indication of which team is the favourite and which is the underdog. Like most other team sports, Aussie rules football is a difficult game to predict. There are many factors that can influence the outcome of a game. Before placing any large bet, it is best to familiarise yourself with the teams, the players and the coaches.
Predicting a Winner
Betting on the AFL requires patience, skill and luck. One factor that can seriously affect the outcome of the game is where the match is played. If a team has home ground advantage, they are more likely to win the match. Other factors that can influence the outcome of match include changes to the team, injuries, changes to the coaching staff and what happened the last time the two teams met.
