Sportsbet’s Brownlow Offer Persuading Punters to Back against Favourite Fyfe
September 26, 2015
The 2015 Brownlow Medallist will be crowned on Monday evening and one man’s been mentioned more than most ahead of the AFL’s night of nights. Nat Fyfe is the hot favourite to be named the best and fairest player but will there be a surprise like last year? If you fancy another play to pip Fyfe for the award than you won’t want to miss Sportsbet’s Brownlow Offer.
Cash Back Brownlow Special
Place a wager on Sportsbet’s Brownlow Winner market and you’ll get refunded if your selection is second to Fyfe. That’s cash back, up to $100 if the player you back is runner up to the raging favourite. Only your first bet on the market qualifies for Sportsbet’s special and it must be made before the count begins.
Fremantle’s Fyfe is at even money with Sportsbet after an incredible beginning to the year. No doubt he’s the man to catch but having missed 4 of the last 6 games of the regular season through injury; has his absence opened the door for others? Joel Selwood failed to triumph at a similar price in 2014 is another shock on the cards?
Best of the Rest
West Coast on baller Matt Priddis won the honour last year at $17. If he does so again it won’t be as big a surprise with the Eagle on the second on the line of betting at $4.50. History suggest he won’t wear the medal again though, with the last back to back Brownlow winner coming way back in 1997/98. Patrick Dangerfield’s a danger for Fyfe. He was the highest flying Crow by a mile this season and is a certainty to be Adelaide’s highest poling player. He could well get the most points overall too and at $8 he’s the only other man under double digits. Could A Hawk hunt the Docker the down? Hawthorn’s Sam Mitchell ($11) had a slow start to the season before hitting a purple patch midway through the campaign. The AFL’s Brownlow predictor has him finishing in second place behind Fyfe. Josh Kennedy ($21) could come with a late run. The Swan should be surging down the straight having hit fine form in the final few games of the season.
