Seeing as this isn’t our first time to the AFL rodeo, here are our top tips for picking a winner this season.
– Don’t overthink it! If your gut is telling you to tip a certain team, go with it! Overthinking your tips will only confuse you and chances are you’ll end up yelling at the TV “I was going to pick them!”. Don’t be that guy.
– Home is where the wins are! It’s safe to assume that playing at home holds some competitive advantage, so if you’re not sure then go with the home team and watch them come through for you!
– Follow the ladder. It goes without saying that teams higher up the ladder are doing better. And if this is new information to you then maybe this isn’t the competition for you… Nonetheless, unless you’re privy to some inside secrets, go with the top team! Statistically, this is the best move you can make when tipping, with more than twice as many games won by top of the ladder teams between 2010-2016.
– Bookie knows best. While this isn’t always a foolproof tipping method, it’s worth taking a look at the latest odds before you place your tips. Chances are the bookies have already done their research and are onto a winner!
