2021 AFL Grand Final First Goalscorer Tips


AFL Grand Final First Goalscorer 2021 Best Bet - Tom Liberatore

Libba can get the fire started for the Dogs in this match. Having already played in a Grand Final, he knows what it takes to get his team pumped up for the occasion.

He has been the first goalscorer in three of his last seven matches, a great stat for a midfielder. At the price, a peanut or two on him will give you every chance of a great return.

AFL Grand Final First Goalscorer 2021 Next Best Bet - Kysaiah Pickett

Kozzie is a little machine down forward and the small forward is a solid chance to kick the first goal of the match.

We saw Kozzie show a lot of life in the first quarter of the Preliminary Final and get his team up and about early with some silky skills, showcasing his clear talent.

If he can get on the end of a boundary thrown in or a forward contest, he is the danger man for the Dees.

AFL Grand Final First Goalscorer 2021 Value Bet - James Harmes

Harmes can sneak the odd goal or two, including kicking an early one against the Lions in the qualifying final and kicking the first against the Dogs in May this year.

The long bomb down forward off the back of a turn over is when he can get a goal. He does need this type of play to score though, so understandably he is long odds in the market but worth a small play.
