2023 AFL Round 22 Betting Analysis for the Top Games of the Week

2023 AFL Round 22 Betting Analysis for the Top Games of the Week

The AFL’s nearing the end of its season, and the race for the top eight to pursue winning the flag in the AFL Grand Final is getting closer. 

Collingwood has a two-game advantage for first place, but does that mean the Magpies are likely to bring home their first premiership since 2010? Not necessarily. The rest of the teams in the top eight are closely bunched and could steal things away.

Here’s a look at the odds on teams to win the title entering round 22.

Let’s take a look at these top matchups in this coming Round 22 matchups with the top AFL betting lines offered by MyBookie.

2023 AFL | 127th season of the Australian Football League
Betting Week: Round 22 of the AFL season
Thursday, August 10th – Sunday, August 13th, 2023


Geelong Cats +1400

The defending premieres are stuck in ninth place, and hoping to find a way to win games over the final three weeks will help them inch up in the standings. Geelong will have a difficult final three games to make it back to the final eight. All three games will be against teams in the top eight of the standings.

Geelong has lost two of its past three games and has been limited to 80 or fewer points in both losses. The Cats don’t seem to have the same spark in front of the goal and will need help to repeat as champions.

Port Adelaide +650

The Power haven’t won an AFL premiership since 2004 but have been a solid team for the past number of seasons. But this Port Allegheny team has found a consistent attack that has six players who have scored 20 or more goals. Jeremy Finlayson has been the standout goal producer, sitting with a team-high 34. 

Charlie Dixon is a big body who has produced 22 goals this season and provides a large target for passes going inside 50. Todd Marshall also is a good scoring option, having scored 29 goals.

Brisbane +550

The Lions have been as consistent as any team in the AFL this season. Brisbane is second in the league in points per game but is capable of grinding out victories in low-scoring affairs as well. Brisbane tripped up Fremantle 77-74 in Week 20.

The Lions aren’t always the most creative attack. Brisbane is second to last in the league in handballs per game and is only 15th in disposals. The Lions’ consistent scoring makes them a threat to win the flag.

Melbourne +300

The Demons are thought to be the second-most likely team to bring home the flag. Melbourne started heating up in Round 17 and has now won five straight games. What makes the Demons so tough is how they attack. 

Melbourne has the most inside 50s of any team in the league. The Demons are also third in the league in points per game.

Collingwood +250

The Magpies are a legitimate contender to win their first flag in over a decade. Collingwood has put itself in that position by having the top defense in the league in opponent points allowed per game. The Magpies have lost two straight games and are 3-4 over its past seven games.

Collingwood has seen some confidence issues start to creep into its kicking. The Magpies were limited to 76 points or fewer in all three losses.
