George Wardlaw is the current favourite to follow on from Sheezel in 2024 at $2.25 to pick up the Rising Star award with bookmaker Betfair. 

Darcy Wilson, Colby McKercher and Caleb Windsor are next in the betting, with the battle for the Rising Star Award heating up as the season has progressed. With just two players at $10.00 or under at the time of writing, we are beginning to get a better picture of who will likely win the award

There were a number of viable players that can be backed heading into the new season, although it can be difficult to back a youngster as information backing up your decision could be lacking as they have so little professional game-time. 

The award is one that does not always go to a young player plying their trade for one of the top sides. Indeed, the North Melbourne Kangaroos finished in 17th on the ladder in 2023 with three wins in 23 attempts, and yet Sheezel scooped the award last year. 

This year, youngsters from the West Coast Eagles and Kangaroos are jostling for position at the head of the betting, with it often easier for an inexperienced player to shine in a side that is struggling. Ensure you know your players and their prospects of playing before you back them in the betting this year. 

Which player do you think will scoop the AFL Rising Star award in 2024? Will it be one of the early contenders, or will another youngster fly to the head of the betting following a superb breakthrough season?
