The Early Contenders:
Better Western Sydney Giants: Present odds: 11/2 to win AFL Grand Last
Honest sufficient, GWS weren’t up in opposition to the most effective opposition when beating Collingwood and the Bulldogs within the opening two video games. Nonetheless, the demolition (133-51) of the Bulldogs within the opening sport was an actual warning to different sides.
Port Adelaide Energy: 6/1 to win Grand Last
Arguably the most effective workforce within the early spherical of the AFL season, Energy have been significantly spectacular in dispatching the Swans on the Sydney Cricket Floor. The early indicators are suggesting Energy could possibly be the workforce to beat this 12 months.
The Shock Package deal:

They should present much more than they did vs Energy to justify that favourites tag.
Richmond Tigers: 7/1 to win Grand Last
The 2017 Premiers got here undone in opposition to the Crows on the weekend in a repeat of final 12 months’s Grand Last. This time round Richmond have been outfought and outthought, particularly in midfield. They don’t appear to be reigning champions in the intervening time.
Western Bulldogs: 6/1 to complete backside
In the intervening time, it’s arduous to imagine that the Bulldogs have been 2016 champions. They have been hammered in each video games to date this season, conceding a median of 127 throughout the 2 video games. There are worse groups within the AFL, however there are probably no groups taking part in as badly.
Carlton: 5/2 to complete backside
