Let’s take a closer examination of the top AFL teams and their odds to lift the famous Premiership Trophy, hopefully back at the MCG in 2021.

AFL 2021 Premiership Favourites

Richmond Tigers

This current Richmond side are creating a dynasty and have the experience and talent to make winning 4 AFL premierships in 5 years a distinct possibility. The Tigers have quality players all across the park that know how to deliver at the pointy end of the season, and who is to say that Dusty Martin can’t win yet another Norm Smith Medal.

Geelong Cats

The Cats will be hungry to knock the Tigers off their lofty perch in 2021 and have recruited well with former GWS goal sneak, Jeremy Cameron, now forming one of the AFL’s most lethal forward lines together with Tom Hawkins. The Cats still have midfield dynamo Patrick Dangerfield to win plenty of ball, but they may miss the retired Gary Ablett Jnr.

Brisbane Lions

Still a quality team, a question mark hangs over the Lions when it comes to AFL Finals, and the Lions may have missed their best ever chance after a Gabba Grand Final last year. However, the Lions should win more than they lose in 2021 and will look to turn their Gabba home into a subtropical fortress.

Port Adelaide Power

After dominating the 2020 home-and-way season and taking out the AFL Minor Premiership , the Power could be excused for being a little miffed at being on the 4th line of 2021 AFL Premiership Betting. The Power will be hungry to turn predicted home-and-away season dominance into finals success in 2021.

West Coast Eagles

West Coast always figure heavily in AFL Premiership due to the huge advantage of playing home matches against travel-weary opponents in Perth. If the Eagles can keep their stars fit and off the injury list in 2021 (particularly leading goal scorers Josh Kennedy and Jack Darling), they’ll be playing plenty of finals footy in 2021.

Western Bulldogs

Many of these current crop of Bulldogs players have the experience in winning an AFL Grand Final the hard way from an Elimination Final starting point. That kind of experience is crucial come finals time, and with arguably the game’s best player in Marcus Bontempelli driving their talented midfield, the Bulldogs are still a dangerous unit.

Collingwood Magpies

The Magpies have the players to win the AFL flag in 2021, but do they have the heart? Following the off-season drama with long-term Club President Eddie Maguire being forced to resign, Nathan Buckley’s men will have to keep the blinders on and not get caught up in the media spotlight if they are to succeed.

St Kilda Saints

This young Saints team are extremely talented and will be better for their finals appearance last year. In coach, Brett Ratten they have a great leader and if the Saints can nail down a Top 4 spot in 2021, the long-suffering Saints fans could possibly celebrate their first Premiership since 1966.

Our predictions

The experience, power and depth of the Richmond player list is unmatched in the AFL at the moment. From a great defence led by the experienced Dylan Grimes and Bachar Houli, Dusty Martin, Dion Prestia and Trent Cotchin in midfield, through to the attack led by Tom Lynch and Jack Riewoldt, the Tigers will be a tough proposition to beat again in 2021. If the Tigers stay injury-free, look for a fourth AFL Premiership in 5 seasons.
