Don’t listen to the haters – there is nothing better than Brownlow Medal night!
It may be a long night, but the amount of betting opportunities are nothing short of outstanding and there is an enormous amount of value to be found.
Unlike the past four years, we are set for a competitive Brownlow Medal count and Patrick Dangerfield, Lachie Neale, Nat Fyfe, Marcus Bontempelli and Patrick Cripps all go in with a genuine winning chance.
We have crunched all the numbers and our 2019 Brownlow Medal tips are available below!
The umpires robbed the Brisbane Lions (proudly sponsored by Neds) of a place in the Preliminary Finals, but they surely can’t rob Lachie Neale of the Brownlow Medal.
Neale was a key reason for the incredible improvement shown by the Lions in 2019 and there has been no more consistent player in the AFL this season.
Neale not only racks up enormous disposal counts, but he actually does something with the footy and his on-field leadership can’t be disputed.
He should fly out of the blocks with nine votes in the first three rounds and he will be close to the top of the leaderboard throughout.
Patrick Dangerfield is a Brownlow Medal stalwart and he is a deserving favourite in 2019.
He didn’t have his most consistent season, but when he was on, he was extremely good and he should have more three vote games than any other player.
Dangerfield should claim nine votes from the past three rounds of the season, so if he is close after round 19, he will prove very tough to hold-out.
Marcus Bontempelli is another proven Brownlow Medal poller and he has had his best season since he helped the Western Bulldogs win the 2016 AFL Premiership.
He doesn’t rack up as many disposals as his Brownlow Medal rivals, but there is an argument to be made that there is no more influential player in the game.
Bontempelli is another that will be finishing the season with a wet sail and he is great value to nab a top three finish.
