The 2022 AFL season is right around the corner, with plenty of exciting action on offer across the season, which begins on Wednesday, March 16th. 

The 2021 season saw Melbourne lift their 13th premiership after a gripping season came to an end. This came after they finished at the top of the table with 17 wins, four losses and a single draw in 22 games. 

The 70 points they picked up meant they just about snuck past Port Adelaide, who finished in second with 68 points in what was an incredibly tight season where first and sixth were separated by just 10 points. 

After battling through the three sets of finals, Melbourne were able to defeat the Western Bulldogs in the grand final in front of a raucous Optus Stadium. 

This year's AFL campaign is likely to match if not exceed the excitement that the fans were treated to last time out, and this means that everything from the overall winner to the wooden spoon winners, and everything in between, is up for debate. 

One such area that bettors will have a keen eye on is the AFL Rising Star award for the new season. 

The AFL Rising Star is awarded to the player that is judged to be the best young player in the AFL that particular year. 

First presented back in 1993 and won by the Brisbane Bears' star Nathan Buckley, this award has become a coveted part of the AFL season. 

The winner of the AFL Rising Star award is given the Ron Evans Medal, which was renamed in 2007 following the death of the former-AFL Commission chair. 

With the season fast approaching, Ladbrokes have already provided bettors with the odds for the AFL Rising Star winner, and it is Nick Daicos, who is available at $3.25, that is the favourite. 

Hot on his heels and expected to provide Daicos with his biggest challenge to winning the award is Jason Horne-Francis, who is available at $3.75. 

Further out in the betting are Josh Ward ($9.00), Josh Rachele ($10.00), Logan McDonald, Heath Chapman and Braeden Campbell ($15.00).

The betting odds for this market will shift with each and every game week, with good and bad performances seeing the odds drift and shorten. 

Keep a close eye on the front-runners in this list as the season goes by, while there may be one or two long shots that surprise everyone as the season goes on.
