Round 6 Premiership Favourites

This is a little thing that I used to do when I was younger to see who I would think would win the Premiership. Who I think will win the premiership will change throughout the season. I will do an update every time it changes. I know it is not a very good method and it is not reliable, but here goes.


The reigning premiers start off as favourites then whoever beats them are favourites then whoever beats them are favourites and so on. Western Bulldogs start off as favourites and they have only had one team beat them which is Fremantle and that was in Round 3. Fremantle lost against West Coast this week so that means that West Coast are favourites.


This is a more complicated version of it. So the reigning premiers are the favourites and whoever beats them are favourites. If the favourites have been beaten before the round that they got beaten on then the team with highest winning margin on them and so on.


Western Bulldogs start favourites, the only team that has beaten them are Fremantle, Fremantle have lost 2 games. 1 against Geelong by 42 and the other one against Port by 89. So Port are the favourites. They have lost 2 games, 1 against Crows by 17 and 1 against GWS by 31. Therefore GWS are the favourites. GWS have only lost 1 game and that was against the Crows by 56. So the Crows are the favourites, the Crows have lost 0 games so the Crows are the current favourites.

Adelaide Crows and West Coast Eagles will remain favourites until one of them loses a game.

    Your system has the same appeal as Round 1. We all get to aspire to be premiers for a week until real evidence starts to accumulate.
    Your column this week listing my Eagles as premiership favourites has much greater emotional appeal than last weeks listing the Dockers. I strongly suspect it will be an all SA list next week.
    I am glad you are too young to bet.
