How to bet on AFL
The AFL (Australian football league) is the dominant league in Australian rules football, a type of football originating from the country.
Despite not having professional leagues in any other countries, the sport is still played at an amateur level in several countries and is viewed by an audience of millions from all around the globe. The sport’s highly competitive nature has made it a popular choice for gamblers, as has the fact that the season runs from March through to September, meaning that it runs through the pre-season of traditional football.
In terms of bets typically placed on the sport, it largely follows the usual bets of its traditional namesake, with match result, handicap bets, over/under, goal forecasts and accumulators being the most popular types of bets placed.
