AFL 2021 Least Wins Wooden Spoon Betting

Bet on who will take the wooden spoon with Playup>>

AFL teams are currently setting themselves for the 2021 season, and as some teams are getting back to their best, stronger and faster for the reboot of the season, other teams are inevitably going to slide backwards. The Wooden Spoon (mythologically awarded each year to the team with the worst AFL home-and-away season record) is the trophy that no club or supporters ever wants to win.

In a bittersweet twist, there’s plenty of money to be made by getting the best odds on favourites to take out the Wooden Spoon before AFL season 2021 now before the footy action recommences.

AFL 2021 Wooden Spoon Favourites

North Melbourne Kangaroos

Rebuilding and with a host of young and untested players, North Melbourne have a huge mission ahead of them in winning matches in 2021. While the youngsters experience gained will assist the Kangaroos in the future, only a career-best season from superstar ruckman Todd Goldstein may seem them denied the wooden spoon.

Adelaide Crows

The Crows are deserting the sinking ship, with players and coaching staff either being traded out or retiring. It’s an ongoing rebuilding period in Adelaide and there may well be a lot of pain for the Crows before things get any better.

Essendon Bombers

Without their heart-and-soul of many years in talisman Joe Daniher, and a very disappointing 2020 behind them, the Bombers will struggle to psychologically lift after missing what could have been their AFL Premiership cycle.

Sydney Swans

It’s incredible to think after such a long run of success that the Swans could be included in a list of AFL Wooden Spoon favourites. If things do indeed get that bad, expect long-term coach, John Longmire, to be shown the door.

Gold Coast Suns

It could be argued that given the promise they showed throughout large chunks of the 2020 season, the Gold Coast Suns are perhaps undeservedly in this list of 2021 Wooden Spoon favourites. The form and fitness of star young gun, Matt Rowell will be key to the Suns avoiding the spoon.

Fremantle Dockers

As ever, the Dockers are a one-man team in 2021 and perhaps even superstar and dual Brownlow Medal Champion, Nat Fyfe, can’t drag Fremantle into the upper echelon of AFL teams. Winning matches outside of Western Australia will be an ongoing issue for the Dockers.
