AFL 2021 Least Wins Wooden Spoon Betting – Odds, Tips & Predictions

AFL 2021 Least Wins Wooden Spoon Betting

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

Each year, 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 the favourites to take out the Wooden Spoon before the finals of AFL season 2021 commence and the home and away season is done and dusted.

Get the best Wooden Spoon odds now for 2021 before the betting markets close in once we near the pointy end of the AFL season.

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 their remaining matches in 2021. While the youngsters experience gained will assist the Kangaroos in the future, only finishing off a career-best season from superstar ruckman Todd Goldstein may seem them denied the wooden spoon.

Adelaide Crows

Despite beginning season 2021 well, 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. The form of veteran Tex Walker has been one of the Crows few highlights in 2021.

Essendon Bombers

Seemingly coming from nowhere in 2021 has been the woeful form of the Hawks, and it will even cost long-term and 4-time AFL Premiership winning coach, Alistair Clarkson his job in a succession plan for the future in both the playing and coaching ranks. The Hawks may not win many matches on the run into September.

Collingwood Magpies

Another club that has seen its coach fall by the wayside in 2021, the Magpies are doing it tough of late. It all kicked off with departure of long-term President Eddie McGuire, the weird trade of Adam Treloar to the Bulldogs and things have gone downhill from there. A difficult end to 2021 awaits the Magpies.

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. In fact, if they just squeeze out another win or two, the Wooden Spoon will become a mathematical impossibility for this unlucky Gold Coast team. Without so many injuries, the Suns might have been playing finals footy in 2021.

Statistics

Wooden Spoon teams that failed to win a match

  • Thirteen wooden spoon teams failed to win a match during a VFL/AFL season, the most recent being Fitzroy in 1964.

Most Wooden Spoons Won

  • 27 – St Kilda Saints, most recently in 2014.

Least Wooden Spoons Won

  • Only the Port Adelaide Power have never won the Wooden Spoon. Ironically, the 21st century’s least successful club, the Carlton Blues, has won all 5 of their Wooden Spoons since 2002.

Most ‘successful’ Wooden Spoon team

  • The 1976 Collingwood Magpies hold the record for the most wins by a wooden spoon team in a season with six wins.

AFL/AFLW Wooden Spoon ‘Double’

  • Carlton are the only team to have both men’s and women’s teams win the wooden spoon in the same season, occurring in 2018.

Our predictions

For once, this year it feels like the bookies have it right and that the North Melbourne Kangaroos will finish the year with the least wins in the AFL. All of the other teams mentioned above may win a home match or two in the run-in to the finals. The Kangaroos will be pushed to win regardless of the venue.
