The 2021 AFL Season is warming up to a start, where we see the defending champions Richmond head the market once again at $4.50.

After a handy 2020 draft, Geelong have been strong in the market at $5.50 while Brisbane ($7) picked up some key players that will give them finesse agains the better sides.

As for the Wooden Spoon, Adelaide and North Melbourne finished at the bottom last year with just the three wins each, while North got the bob in to finish ahead of Adelaide on percentage.

Hawthorn were the average side and the team that disappointed most, so the Wooden Spoon could well and truly be in their grasp.

As for a team on the cusp of making Finals, Melbourne have been around the mark for a few seasons now (besides 2019) and with Christian Petracca getting the recognition he deserved in 2020, he will lead them towards finals this season.

2021 AFL Premiership Winner Tips

AFL Premiership 2021 Best Bet - Brisbane

After putting together two fantastic seasons in a row, they have just come to be a little disappointing in finals against the best of the best teams.

This season looks set to be a lot different though with Joe Daniher being up forward and giving them a big marking target who at his best is one of the better forwards in the competition.

We have seen players go to Brisbane and their injuries suddenly heal with the son on their back, so here's hoping big Joe is the key to Brisbane's forward troubles.

2021 AFL Least Season Wins Tips

AFL Least Season Wins 2021 Best Bet - Hawthorn

After a very flat 2020 season and some speculation of how much depth their playing group has, I am not convinced that their luck is changing any time soon.

They miss a key forward outside of Gunston and Breust who are the go-to men every inside 50, which leaves opposition defenders comfortable that they know where the ball will go.

We know Alastair Clarkson is one of the best coaches we have ever seen, but there is only so much a coach can do with a limited playing group.

2021 AFL To Make Finals Tips

AFL To Make Finals Best Bet - Melbourne

Melbourne were average two seasons back when promising so much prior.

Last season was frustrating for supporters, but albeit and improvement on what they had done in the previous season, mainly because of the rise of Brownlow runner-up Christian Petracca.

He has turned himself into one of the elite midfielders of the competition and got the credit that he deserved with his Brownlow ranking, hopefully giving him the confidence in himself and his team to lead them to a top eight position.

Brisbane looks a good bet for the flag this season with more structure in their side.

Hawthorn had a poor season last year and with no improvement to their list, the only way I see them going is backwards.

Melbourne were on the brink of finals last year and can take the extra step this year.
