Norm Smith Medal Contenders

Melbourne's Christian Petracca and Clayton Oliver head the betting markets, arguably being two of the top five players in the competition this year. Playing for the favoured Dees, it is understandable why they hold top spots.

Marcus Bontempelli is the most favoured player for the Dogs, while Melbourne ruckman Max Gawn is also prominent in the betting to repeat his Preliminary Final five goal best on ground performance.

Ball magnet Jack Macrae is and Bailey Smith, who has arguably been the best player this finals series, and next in the latest Norm Smith Medal odds.

Norm Smith Medal Tips

Best Bet - Bailey Smith

He has been the best player for the Bulldogs this finals series, kicking the match winner and a bag of goals against the Lions in the Semi Final, before coming up with another 20+ disposal game and four goals next to his name in what was a demolition in Adelaide against Port in the Preliminary Final.

He stands out to umpires with the well renowned mullet and, being a mid-forward, he is naturally going to win plenty of footy and give himself every chance to kick a goal as well. He is currently at $15 and looks a great bet is the Bulldogs are to win this Grand Final.

Next Best Bet - Christian Petracca

The Melbourne star is the most explosive player in the game. Although he can weave in and out of matches sometimes, when he is on it only takes a hand full of kicks and a goal to make him look the best and most influential player on the ground.

He stands out to umpires with his explosive running and, of course, when he can get on the end of a few goals, his team seems to lift. If Melbourne are to win the flag, it is hard not to see Petracca having a major influence in the match.

Value Bet - Kysaiah Pickett

Little Kozzie Pickett is the barometer for the Demons and can really light their ignition early if he is to find the ball in his hands.

He looked silky in their last match against the Geelong Cats in the Preliminary Final, and as if he is just ready to put on a show for the Perth crowd.

We know he can get on the end of a few goals. If he can kick a few magic ones from the pocket, this will stand out to the umpires with the crowd erupting.
