AFL Brownlow FAQs

For live updates on Brownlow markets, please click here.

The AFL Brownlow Medal is awarded to the best and fairest player of the entire AFL season, as voted upon weekly by the allocated field umpires.

There are many markets to bet on, and many possible outcomes including outright ties, top-5, 10, 20 and handicap markets.  Below we have simplified some available markets within examples of how to calculate payouts for ties (dead heats).  

Important! Payout on dead heat selection/s will not be less than the customers stake (excluding Cashed Out bets). 

What happens to my bet if my player is suspended or injured?

  • Betting on the Brownlow Medal is considered 'All In' betting, this means if your player is not eligible (suspended) or has not played for the season the bet will stand.

What happens if the Brownlow Medal is a draw?

  • If customer had a $100 bet on Player A at $3.00 to win the Brownlow Medal in the Outright Winner market and he ties with Player B on 30 votes each, the payout to the customer will be $150. 
    = $100 (stake) x $3 (odds) / 2 (number of players tied) = $150.00

What happens if there is a tie for 3rd, 5th, 10th or 20th Brownlow market? 

  1. If customer had a $100 bet on Player A at $1.90 in the Top-3 market, and he ties for 3rd place with Player B on 25 votes each, the payout to the customer will be:
    $100 (stake) x $1.90 (odds) x 1/2 (which is the 1 place remaining for 3rd divided by the 2 players tied for that place) = $95.00.  As this is less than the customer’s stake, as per above rules, the payout will not be less than the customer’s original stake so the payout will actually be $100.00.

  2. If a customer had a $100 bet on Player A at $2.80 in the Top 10 market, and he ties for 8th place with 3 other players on 21 votes each (see the blue highlighted players below) the payout to the customer will be:
    $100 (stake) x $2.80 (odds) x 3/4 (which is the 3 places remaining from 8th, 9th & 10th, divided by the 4 players tied for those places) = $210.00.

To put the above simply, calculate return as normal, multiply by the number of place finishes available in that specific market, then divide that by the number of players tied for those remaining positions.

How does the AFL elite player handicap market work? 

  • Each player's handicap (in brackets) is added to their final vote tally. The player with the highest overall score (votes + allocated handicap) is deemed the winner. Dead Heat Rules Apply.  This market includes ineligible players.
  • The player handicap table below displays each players actual votes, handicap votes then a total of both combined in yellow. With all of the the handicaps added, Lachie Neale is the winner of this market. 

When will winning bets be paid?

  • We will settle all markets on the Brownlow Medal after the conclusion of the count so you can expect your Winnings in your account within 24 hours, but usually that same night.

What is a Brownlow exacta & quinella?

  • Are you struggling to decide who will win the Brownlow and have two favourites in mind? A Quinella means that you pick two players whom you want to come first and second in the Brownlow in any order.
  • An Exacta means you pick two players to finish first and second in that exact order. The player listed first needs to win and the player listed second needs to come second for your bet to win.

What is a Brownlow trifecta?

  • A Trifecta means you pick three players to finish first, second and third in exact order.
  • A Boxed Trifecta means you pick three players to finish first, second and third in any order.

What is a Brownlow Medal Pick4?

  • A Pick4 means you pick four players to finish first, second, third and fourth, in the exact order. The player listed first needs to win, the player listed second needs to come second, the player listed third needs to come third, and the player listed fourth needs to come fourth.
  • A Boxed Pick4 means you can pick four players to finish first, second, third or fourth in any order.
  • Players who are suspended are not eligible for this market.
