The 2023 AFL campaign has truly had it all but with the end of the season looming large, many betting sites are starting to shape markets on which sides will end up in the top 4.

Finishing inside the top 8 places in the AFL table sees sides make the play-offs but a top 4 finish can be hugely advantageous.

Collingwood and Port Adelaide look to be assured of a top 4 berth with many AFL betting apps but there are plenty of other sides in contention.

With just six full game weeks to complete in the 2023 AFL season, let’s take a look at the key runners and riders for a top 4 finish:

Collingwood and Port Adelaide

With 17 game weeks played, the narrative throughout the 2023 AFL season has been solely surrounding Collingwood and Port Adelaide.

Both sides have been clinical throughout the year, winning almost 90% of their fixtures and they will want to carry that into the play-offs.

It would take a dramatic capitulation for either side to miss out on a top 4 finish, but stranger things have happened.

With PlayUp, Collingwood are $1.05 to make the top 4, with Port Adelaide coming in at $1.10, testament to their dominance this term.

Brisbane Lions

Brisbane’s stellar form this term has seen plenty of AFL new betting sites stand up and take note.

The Lions have kept pace with the big hitters above them and look to be coming into late season form too.

Brisbane Lions are $1.15 with WinnersBet to secure top 4.

Melbourne and St Kilda

Currently, the race for the final top 4 spot looks to be battled out between two old foes: Melbourne and St Kilda.

Both franchises have enjoyed good campaigns and a top 4 spot would feel like just rewards for their efforts.

Melbourne currently find themselves in the driver’s seat and are $1.50 with BoomBet to conclude the season inside the top 4.

St Kilda’s recent form meanwhile has caught the eye with many AFL live betting sites and they will be confident of putting a run together at $2.40 with TopSport.

With the Western Bulldogs in the mix too at $4.00 with Bet365, there are plenty of teams in contention for a top 4 finish in AFL 2023 and it promises to be a fascinating conclusion to the regular season
