2020 Brownlow Medal Betting Tips

The 2020 Brownlow Medal count is going to be one of the most interesting nights of the sporting year.

The up and coming stars will be looking to dethrone the old guard who have dominated the competition for the last decade, but with Fyfe, Martin and Dangerfield all entering the season in their primes it looms as another tight count.

We're expecting the Carlton skipper to top the count, with a returning Hawk and a Bulldog ball magnet also in the 2020 Brownlow Medal mix.

2020 Brownlow Medal Best Bet - Patrick Cripps

The Carlton skipper was the people's choice last year and looked likely to take Charlie home before Nat Fyfe came home like a steam train to claim the award.

Everything in 2020 seems to be lining up for the Carlton skipper, which bodes well for a solid count come September. The Blues will be vying for a spot in the eight for the first time since 2013 and more wins means more opportunities for Cripps to poll votes.

The Blues on-baller seems to get better every year and has already proven in a poor side that he's able to amass votes, so we're expecting him to go even better in 2020 with a much improved side around him.

2020 Brownlow Medal Next Best Bet - Tom Mitchell

Mitchell was a runaway winner of the 2018 Brownlow Medal before a pre-season leg injury robbed him of any playing time last season.

The big query heading into the 2020 Brownlow Medal will be Titch's ability to bounce back from that horror broken leg, but mobility was never Mitchell's great strength, it's always been about his work rate and ability to read the play.

Mitchell has opened as one of only five players to start the 2020 season in single figures for the Brownlow Medal and will shorten significantly if he starts the campaign in good shape.

He's worth an investment on faith alone.

2020 Brownlow Medal Best Roughie - Josh Dunkley

Few players had a better second half to the season than Bulldogs ball magnet Josh Dunkley, who routinely accumulated over 35 disposals.

The big issue for Dunkley will be the competition from teammates Marcus Bontempelli and Jack Macrae, but the 22-year-old has improved year-to-year and could potentially go to another gear.

Heavy ball users always poll votes and after finishing inside the top 20 last year, it would not surprise us if Josh Dunkley entered the game's elite on Brownlow Medal night.

Verdict

Cripps is a proven vote accumulator and with a better side around him, his Brownlow chances should grow accordingly.

Mitchell enters the season at a decent price given his injury concerns so we're having a saver on him, while Josh Dunkley's huge price is hard to ignore.
