    Brownlow Medal Main Contenders in 2016

    Patrick Dangerfield Profile

    An obvious favourite for the Brownlow Medal. He is a prolific vote getter having polled 20+ in each of the past four seasons. In fact since 2012 he has polled 88 votes from 85 games, polling in 36 of those at a rate of 42.3% which is astronomical. Of those 36 games, he polled 3 votes in 22 which is even more remarkable.

He has polled 68 votes during that same period and has polled 20+ votes twice, including 24 votes in season 2015.

    Luke Parker Profile

    Luke Parker has emerged as a genuine A-Grade midfielder of the AFL and is set to feature heavily in Brownlow Medal betting. However he has plenty of work to do given he has polled just 26 votes in total over his 90 game career. However 21 of those votes have come the past two years and he has lifted to another level in 2016.

    Joel Selwood Profile

    Joel Selwood will relish having Patrick Dangerfield join him in the Cats midfield in season 2016, relieving his workload significantly. Selwood has polled at least 13 votes every season since 2008 including 27 votes when he was runner up in 2013. During that period he has polled 148 votes, including votes in 69 of 165 matches (41.8%).

    Matt Priddis Profile

    The 2014 Brownlow Medallist has polled 28 and 26 votes over the past two seasons and is at the peak of his powers. His long blonde locks, plus his hard at it contested style of play means that the he definitely stands out to the umpires. Priddis has polled 129 votes over 188 home and away games during his stellar career.

    Sam Mitchell Profile

    Here is a man who needs no introduction as he is always near the top of Brownlow Medal markets. Mitchell rates as one of the most prolific Brownlow Medal pollers of all time. Since 2005 he has polled a whopping 192 votes from 213 matches. Of those games he has polled in 89 and that is a strike rate of 41.8%!

    Dylan Shiel Profile

    Dylan Shiel has been in the AFL system for five years now and has polled just 8 career votes, however he is one of the most important players for the GWS Giants. With the Giants expected to make the finals in 2016, you can expected that Shiel will play a major role in their resurgence.

    Lance Franklin Profile

    You can be sure Lance Franklin will be up there in Bownlow Medal betting this year. The superstar is one of the best players in the competition and can turn matches off his own boot. He also knows how to poll votes too. Since 2008 he has polled 101 votes from his 150 matches, including votes in 46 of those games.

    Jack Viney Profile

    The Melbourne son of a gun Jack Viney is expected to feature pretty high in the Brownlow Medal this year. This will be his fourth season at AFL level and so far he has polled only 5 votes from his short 49 game career. Not great reading, but season 2016 is likely to be a breakthrough season for him.

    Gary Ablett Profile

    He may be getting older and more injury prone nowadays, but write off Gary Ablett at your own peril. This is a guy who has won two Brownlow Medals and has polled 200 votes from 162 games since 2008. That means an average of 1.23 votes a game and a strike rate of 55.5%, so we say again write him off at you own peril.
