7 wins on the spin have propelled Carlton up the AFL table
A 7-game winning run has seen the Carlton Blues soar up the 2023 AFL table
- Seven straight wins have seen the Carlton Blues move up to 5th place in the AFL table.
- Their loss to Essendon on June 11th was the last time Carlton tasted defeat.
- Carlton have seen off Port Adelaide, Collingwood, and St Kilda in winning run.
- Melbourne await next in a tasty GW21 encounter.
Carlton have put their fans through the mill throughout the 2023 AFL season, with most betting sites not knowing which way to turn.
At the halfway stage of the season, Carlton had only won 4 games and were staring down the barrel of a nondescript campaign.
However, 7 straight wins have seen them rise to 5th in the AFL table, in striking distance of the top 4 above them.
Carlton coming good
With no AFL premiership win since 1995, many AFL betting sites would be forgiven for giving up on Carlton in 2023.
4 wins from their opening 14 games was barely top 8 form and things didn’t look to be going to plan for the blues.
However, they have surpassed last season’s 9th place finish and now look to be well placed for the top 8 at $1.55 with WinnersBet.
Top 4 push still on
Only having three regular season games to play is perhaps the only thing stopping Carlton from a top 4 push currently.
They have beaten both Collingwood and Port Adelaide who are above them in recent weeks and are the momentum side in the AFL.
Time could catch up with Carlton, but they will be ready to pounce if the sides above them slip up and they could sneak in the top 4 at

Melbourne up next
A big percentage of Carlton’s season hangs on their next fixture against Melbourne.
Cross-city rivals Melbourne find themselves in 2nd, following an excellent campaign and they are the benchmark for Carlton coming into this one.
Carlton will be bang up for this one at the MCG and the place should be rocking, making their odds of $2.25 with PlayUp, something to potentially get behind.
