Australian Rules Football is, without doubt, one of the best sports in the world to watch and bet on. Hence why we’ve developed our proprietary AFL Betting Model to take advantage of the markets available. Below are the five bookmaker accounts we recommend all AFL punters have to help maximize profits.
Shopping for the best price is one of the easiest things a punter can do to maximize profitability. However, not all bookmakers will let you get your full stake on at the best price.
We’ve ranked our top five AFL bookmakers based on the following factors.
- High limits: IE will the bookie take a decent bet on gameday
- Low commission/vig: How much value in terms of overround or percentage that is returned to the punter
- Reliability: Ensuring that your funds will be safe and you’ll be paid out a winner when you should be!
- Range of markets: Bookmakers that go far beyond the standard Line, H2H and Totals markets.
So without further ado, here’s our list of the top five bookmaker accounts all AFL punters should have!
While they are still accepting Aussie customers there is no doubt Pinnacle remain the number one bookie to have for AFL. High limits, no closure of accounts or hard restrictions and of course their famous low margin products. Their offering isn’t as broad as other operators but they cover all of the main markets our AFL Model covers and are so often the best price!
