Dustin Martin is the new Brownlow Medal favourite after Tom Mitchell was effectively ruled out of playing in the 2019 season today, Mitchell suffered a broken leg at pre-season training.
The top end of popular Brownlow Medal chances have all shortened as a result of the Mitchell news, Patricks Cripps moved from $13 to $10 whilst Dustin Martin moved from $7.50 to $6.50 at Bet Easy.
With one of the main contenders out of the market this season the focus will sharpen in on potential winners prior to Round 1, expect a volatile market at the beginning of the season.
Stay tuned to @aflratingsLab & @aflratings on Twitter for updates on the 2019 Brownlow Medal, the AFLRATINGS Brownlow Medal Form Guide will also be available again this season for punters wanting to take a sharp angle.
The Mitchell injury is another example of going early on individual investments, for those still willing to take early positions it is recommended not being over exposed for these types of scenarios.
