The AFL recently announced that they would be removing one of the pre-game warm-ups. When there is no curtain-raiser involved, team will be allotted a 90-minute window for ‘individual on-field player access’ (and 30 minutes when there is a curtain-raiser). These warm-ups are only allowed up until 30 minutes before the opening bounce to allow home teams to carry on with their 15-minute fan events.
Players and coaches spoke out about possibly not having time to acclimate to new pitch conditions. These issues were addressed, but teams will still not be allowed to have extended warm-ups before a match, those of which typically take about 45 minutes. Often times, there were support staff present alongside team members and coaches, requiring up to 100 people to be present on the grounds.
Up to date information like this is great to keep in your back pocket if you’re looking to do AFL betting online or in person. Staying informed is one great move, but there are many other excellent AFL betting tips to also keep in mind. Some things to always check are past results, team form, and if your team has a home advantage. If you’re still relatively new or looking to brush up on your AFL betting knowledge, check out sites that offer players insight as to not only betting strategies, but also the best places online to bet. These sites should also have professional reviews of Australian bookmakers available. Keeping these things in mind will help you pick the right players to bet on!
