The Australian Football League (AFL) is comprised of 18 teams that play each other in the 2017 AFL premiership final.  These 18 teams will be playing for the AFL Premiership Cup which is decided at the end of the AFL season which will take place on the 30th September 2017.  In 1897 when the AFL was founded it consisted of 8 teams, all from Victoria.  The AFL is currently represented by 6 Australian states and Tasmania.

Victoria has the majority of AFL teams, 10 teams and this includes 9 teams based in Melbourne.  There are two teams from the other four states.  Amazingly enough there are seven clubs that have been playing in the AFL since 1897 and they are Carlton Blues, Sydney Swans, Geelong Cats, Collingwood Magpies, St Kilda Saints, Essendon Bombers and Melbourne Demons.  Of the former clubs the Fitzroy Lions and Brisbane Bears merged and are now the Brisbane Lions.

AFL Final Betting Opportunities

The AFL presents bettors with great betting options and each New Zealand bettor can find a range of different odds available and it is always good advice to shop around for the best odds.  Great betting options include which player will receive the Norm Smith Medal for the Man of the Match and the Jock McHale Medal which is given to the coach of the winning team.

Head-to-head bets are popular among New Zealand online betting sites and are a great option for first time bettors as the odds here are simple and bettors must pick a team to win the AFL Premiership Final for example.  Line betting is also popular and involves picking how many points a team may lose or win by.  New Zealand bettors can also try their hand at season wins betting which opens before the beginning of the annual premiership and all of the clubs will be listed and their overs and unders will be recorded across the 23 week season which leads up to the AFL final.  The coveted Brownlow medal is given to the player considered to be the fairest and most professional AFL player and the decision is made by the umpires after each AFL game.  Betting on which player will receive this award is very popular and the odds will continuously change during the season.

Because the AFL is so popular the betting options available are numerous and with easy access to placing bets online sports bettors have the opportunity to place bets which are easy, convenient and safe.
