Defending champions Melbourne expectedly opened as 4.75 favourites to win the 2022 AFL Premiership.
The Demons beat the Western Bulldogs 140-66 in the Grand Final at Optus Stadium in Perth last month to win their 13th Premiership. It was a fitting result for Melbourne, who topped the regular season with 70 points from 22 matches.
The Bulldogs are the second favourites and they can be backed at 7.00 to win their first Premiership since 2016. They placed only fifth in last year’s regular season but went on to beat higher-ranked teams Brisbane and Port Adelaide to reach the Grand Final for the first time since 1961.
Also expected to contend for the top prize are the Brisbane Lions (8.00) and Port Adelaide (9.00). The Lions placed fourth last season before losing to the Bulldogs in the Semi-finals. Port Adelaide finished second to Melbourne in the regular season table and were eliminated in the Preliminary Final.
