AFL Championship Lines


The Australian Football League (AFL) is an 18-team league that is Australia’s most popular sport. The AFL started in 1896, when they were first known as the Victorian Football League, after six of the clubs from the Victorian Football Association left to start this new league. In 1990, the Victorian Football League would change its name to the Australian Football League, primarily due to some of the teams in the league not being located in Victoria.

Australia has many different Australian rules football leagues. However, the AFL is also the only men’s professional Australian rules football league. Being the only men’s professional league has made the AFL stand out in Australia for years.

The 2022 AFL season starts on March 16th, 2022, and concludes with the AFL championship on September 24th, 2022. Australia Football Team, the Melbourne Demons, will be going into the 2022 season as the defending champions of the 2021 AFL Championship.

Main Events During The AFL Year

The AFL also has several special themed events during their season. These are the listed themed matches, along with the year that they first started:

  • Anzac Day Clash (1995)
  • Dreamtime at the ‘G (2005)
  • Easter Monday Clash
  • Queen’s Birthday Match (2001)

At the end of the AFL season, the top eight teams will compete in a format that puts the 5th,6th,7th,and 8th ranked teams in elimination matches with each other. The 1st,2nd,3rd, and 4th ranked teams face each other in a qualifying match, with the winners getting a bye in the second week of finals play.

In week two week of the format of the finals, the winners of the elimination matches then go on to face the losers of the qualifying matches. Week three will see the winners of week two face the two teams that won the week one qualifying matches. Week four ends with the grand final, the AFL Championship match, in which the winners of week three face each other.

With some knowledge of the background of the AFL, the next important thing has to be a good betting strategy on the AFL Championship. Without a good plan, you may be making a bad bet. That’s why it is essential to do a little research on the Australia Football Team that you might be betting on.

Here are some of the common things to look for when looking at your Australia Football Team:

  • What is the teams’ history of winning an AFL Championship
  • Has the team lost any star players
  • Are there injuries on the team that could prevent them from making the AFL Championship
  • Has the team acquired new talent that will help them win the AFL Championship
  • How many times has the team been to or won the AFL Championship in the past five years

If you are betting before the AFL season starts, some people place wagers on multiple teams. The logic behind this is to bet on the favorite, then bet lesser amounts on other teams. The amount that the person would wager would ensure that a win would cover all losses. This strategy offers the lowest return and could incur the highest amount of money lost if all bets are losers.

For an example of this strategy, someone would wager $100 on the favorite at +400 odds. They would then wager on another team for $50 that had +800 odds. The amount of bet would decrease while the odds increased. However, the total amount bet wouldn’t exceed $400, as the return would be $400 if the favorite won the AFL Championship in this example.

The multiple team betting strategy is expected but also very risky. Vegas’s “High-Roller” players usually use this strategy, as they can afford to place large bets on multiple teams. For the majority of people that bet, it’s best to do research and bet on one team. Betting on numerous teams may hedge any losses but has a more significant risk of more enormous losses if none of the teams win the AFL Championship.

A: The AFL Championship odds are based on money line odds. This means the team has to win outright for you to win the bet. There are three types of odds, the plus odds, the even odds, and the negative odds. Plus, odds show the amount you will win for every $100 you bet. Even odds show you win the exact amount you wagered on a winning bet. Negative odds show you who much you have to wager just to win $100.

A: The AFL Championship odds work like all other football odds. The favorite team will have the lowest odds for return. At the beginning of the season, the favorite is the team that won the previous years’ AFL Championship game. All teams start with plus odds at the beginning of the AFL season. But as the finals approach, the favorite teams’ odds may start going into the negative odds.

When the AFL Championship game is to be played, the favorite team will have negative odds, while the underdog that they will be playing will have plus odds.

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
