THE 2016 AFL Premiership ladder is starting to take on an interesting shape as we approach the dreaded bye rounds.
North Melbourne is unbeaten after eight games despite a late scare from Essendon last weekend, but Geelong are hot on their heels with six wins on the trot.
GWS Giants are the other bolters in the top four, heading up a group of four teams on 24 points apiece, while Carlton’s surprising run of four consecutive wins puts them on the brink of the final eight.
With another action-packed round upon us, our top-ranked bookmakers online are running a ton of AFL betting specials and cash-back promotions for Aussie footy fans.
AFL first goalscorer bonus at CrownBet.com
Our friends at CrownBet have conjured up a number of tasty online betting specials for AFL round nine.
If you bet on the first goalscorer market for any game this weekend, you can get up to $50 back in bonus bets if your player scores a major in the first quarter.
For example, let’s say we put $10 on Geelong’s Patrick Dangerfield to bag the first goal against Collingwood on Saturday. If he kicks a six-pointer in the opening term, but not the first one, we’ll get a $10 bonus cash refund.
For even more footy betting bonuses, also check out CrownBet’s Friday Night Special.
If you place a head-to-head bet on Hawthorn vs. Sydney and your team loses by 18 points or less, the bookie will refund your wager up to a maximum of $50 bonus money.
William Hill multi insurance specials
All year round, our most trusted AFL betting sites are offering cash refunds on footy multis that only just miss the mark.
But the best deal of the lot comes from WilliamHill.com, where you can also score a progressive bonus payout on winning multi bets.
If you pick a sports multi of four head-to-head legs or more, you can claim up to $50 cash back should you miss out by a single leg.
If your AFL multi gets up, however, you can qualify for payout bonus up to 40 per cent over and above your original winnings.
The bigger the multi, the better the bonus:
- Four legs = 2.5% bonus
- Five legs = 5% bonus
- Six legs = 10% bonus
- Seven legs = 15% bonus
- Eight legs = 20% bonus
- Nine legs = 25% bonus
- 10 legs = 30% bonus
- 11 legs = 35% bonus
- 12+ legs = 40% bonus
So if we saluted with a nine-leg football multi paying $1000, for instance, we would get another 40 per cent on top for a total collect of $1250.
This deal applies to all sports, including soccer, NBA, MLB and NRL, with a maximum bonus return of $5000 up for grabs.
