Nick Daicos looking to hang on to 2023 Brownlow Medal
Nick Daicos has been hugely influential for Collingwood this season, but injury has brought his Brownlow Medal hopes into question
- Nick Daicos has been at the heart of Collingwood’s 2023 AFL success.
- Injury has curtailed his regular season, giving hope to those looking to catch him in Brownlow Medal race.
- Marcus Bontempelli looks to be primed to attempt to chase Daicos down.
- Melbourne’s Christian Petracca also very much in the end of season mix.
Such has been the consistency and dominance displayed by Nick Daicos and Collingwood during the 2023 AFL season, that he has been the favourite for Brownlow Medal glory with all major betting sites throughout 2023.
However, a hairline fracture injury has seen Daicos on the sidelines in recent weeks, giving an opportunity to some of the AFL’s other superstars.
With just 2 weeks of the regular AFL season to go, the race for the 2023 Brownlow Medal is hotting up.
Nick Daicos the man to catch
It seems to be more than a coincidence that a recent blip in form for Collingwood has coincided with an injury to Nick Daicos.
In only his second full season as an AFL player, Nick Daicos has been sublime in all areas, making him a sure thing with new betting sites the world over.
The impact he has had on proceedings for the Magpies this term has been exponential, and they sit at the top of the AFL table as a result.
Despite not being able to play the last two games of the regular season, Nick Daicos is still the favourite for 2023 Brownlow medal honours at $3.00 with WinnersBet.
Bontempelli on the charge
Whilst the injury to Daicos was something nobody wanted to see, plenty of other players have seized upon the opportunity.
Western Bulldogs midfielder Marcus Bontempelli has grown into the 2023 AFL campaign, sneaking under the radar with many AFL betting apps.
He will be looking to ensure the Western Bulldogs finish in the playoffs, as he and his side look to finish the season strongly.
Bontempelli has two games to keep picking up Brownlow Medal votes and he is firmly in the mix at $4.00 with Bet365.
Petracca to cause an upset?
The Melbourne Demons are another side that have enjoyed a good season and Christian Petracca has been a huge part of that.
Displaying levels of consistency previously unseen, Petracca has been one of the go-to men for Melbourne as they sit in the top 4.
A lot will depend on others for Petracca’s Brownlow Medal hopes, but he is seen as a contender with many live betting sites.
At $6.50 with PlayUp, Petracca is a relative outsider but a big finish to the season could see him force his way into the mix.
