The 2023 Grand Final will see the Collingwood Magpies take on the Brisbane Lions at the MCG on Saturday, but who will be the matchwinner and who will take the prestigious Norm Smith Medal?

While most of the attention will be on winning the showpiece event, players will have the possibility of winning the Norm Smith Medal at the back of their minds. 

The Norm Smith Medal will be presented to the best player on the ground in the AFL Grand Final. 

Nick Daicos of the Collingwood Magpies is the favourite to scoop the award at $4.50, but is he the man to back?

2023 AFL Grand Final Norm Smith Medal Tips

Best Bet - Nick Daicos - $4.50

Nick Daicos arrives as the favourite to scoop the Norm Smith Medal after a strong campaign with Collingwood that has seen him emerge as a real star. 

At $4.50, he does feel quite short in the betting but the importance of Daicos was clear as the Pies' only dip in form came at the end of the home and away season when he was ruled out with injury.

Value Bet - Lachie Neale - $7.00

Lachie Neale was in inspired form last week as he found a way to get the Lions over the line in the Prelims against the Blues. 

Despite hurting his shoulder in a tackle, Neale led from the front as he has done all season. 

With a second Brownlow Medal now in his pocket following Monday's vote, Neale may yet add the Norm Smith Medal to his collection along with a triumph in the Grand Final in 2023. 


Daicos is the favourite in this one and has been in great form all season, but Neale is looking to usurp him and lead the Lions to victory. If Brisbane win this game, it would be no surprise to see Neale awarded the medal.
