In a match where Geelong started impressively and raced out to a 22 point lead in the second quarter before Richmond impressively surged back to triumph, the AFL grand final was certainly an entertaining clash in Brisbane.
Made all the more exciting by the fact it was the first night Grand Final and first to be held outside of Melbourne due to the health crisis in Victoria, this added to the occasion.
Heading into the game Richmond were priced as favourites at $1.87 while Geelong weren’t far behind at $2.00. Winning by a 31 point margin in the end, punters could have got Richmond to win by over 25 points at a solid $4.20.

Excellent odds of $5 on Norm Smith Medal winner Dustin Martin, given for the man of the match, were also taken advantage of by many. Moreover, quite a few cashed in on Martin being priced at $1.65 to record over 20 disposals, which he did by getting 22 touches.
Geelong captain, Joel Selwood, beat the odds to record over 20 disposals too, as he was paying a hefty $3.25 that many took advantage of.
One lucky punter who bet a whopping $10,000 on Richmond to win the final back in September at $4.25 would’ve unquestionably been delighted at the outcome.
Having now won three of the last four Grand Finals, Richmond are unsurprisingly favourites to win again in 2021. Priced at 4.50, the Tigers will certainly be tough to bet, as plenty of bettors will already by backing them for glory next season.
