The AFL and NRL grand final weekend is undoubtedly the biggest on the Australian sporting calendar.
The Australian Football League grand final is played on Saturday, beginning at 2.30pm AEST, and features the bookies’ favourite Adelaide, playing Richmond at the Melbourne Football Ground.
The massive weekend then culminates in group 1 horse racing on Sunday from Caulfield, followed by the National Rugby League grand final, beginning at 7.15pm AEST.
The question we get asked most working in gambling, and having several Aussie team members on staff, is how can you bet on it from overseas.
Well, it’s actually pretty simple, surprisingly, most online betting sites will host markets for both these competitions, whether it’s because they know Australians love to punt and offshore sites often will take bigger bets, or maybe there is growing interest in these games outside of their host country.
Whatever the reason, here is a general run down of the best bookies, to bet on Australian sport internationally.
Best ONLINE BOOKMAKERSAll Bookmakers
This is the easiest country to bet on the NRL and AFL from, given that most of the Australian bookmakers are owned in the UK.
This means gambling giants like William Hill and Bet365 have outstanding ranges of markets available internationally.
The options are more limited for our American friends who want to bet on the Australian competitions. We strongly recommend Bovada for those who have access in their state.
Another bookie that has AFL and NRL markets and is open to USA punters is BetOnline, check them out here.
The NRL we strongly recommend using Ladbrokes or Sportsbet.
Expats living in Europe can still bet with their Australian bookmakers, if they use a VPN. For those who want to open an account in Europe Betway has a good reputation, while Bet365 is available in most countries.
