Adelaide and North Melbourne share Premiership Favouritism Heading into 2020 AFLW Season

The 2020 AFL Womens season kicks off this Friday night with North Melbourne and Adelaide the $4.50 equal favourites with Australian bookmakers to win the 2020 AFLW Premiership.

North Melbourne were favourites early in the 2019 season before a couple of late losses saw them miss the Grand Finals, while Adelaide went on to win the Premiership. Melbourne ($7.50) and newcomers Richmond ($9.00) follow in the next lines of betting at BetEasy.

After recruiting heavily in the off-season, and on the back of the success of their men’s team, Richmond are expected to be very competitive in their inaugural season. Punters agree with Richmond the $1.75 favourite at BetEasy to defeat Carlton on Friday night, despite the Blues reaching the Grand Final last season.

Three other new teams are introduced to the AFLW league this season with St Kilda ($29), West Coast ($34) and Gold Coast ($51) expected to struggle according to the premiership odds.
