Welcome to The Profits analysis of the 2016 Brownlow Medal. It’s been a very long season and we come into the count with what most expect to be a fairly ‘boring’ count in terms of the winners market, with Mr Dangerfield the $1.26 favourite. On our sheets and on every other sheet i’ve put my eyes upon, Dangerfield is head and shoulders ahead of the next best in Martin and Bontempelli. The only possible way I could see him losing the count is if a Sydney player is singled out all year by the umpires and they overpoll by a significant amount. This year there seems to be more markets to look at than ever before so using our spreadsheet to shop around, as well as comparing to others thoughts, should have you well in on the night.
We will be live tweeting round-by-round updates of where we see the top 10 finishing after every round as well as votes to watch out for the next round, so don’t forget to follow us on @TheProfitsComAu.
