Popular AFL Same Game Multi Bet Markets

Now that you have a better understanding of Same Game Multi Bets, let’s take a look at some of the most popular markets you can include in your wager.

Head-to-Head Bets

The head-to-head bet is a simple wager on which team will win the match – simples.

Line Bets

An AFL line bet involves placing a wager on a team to win by a certain margin. For example, if the line is set at -7.5, then the favourite team needs to win by 8 points or more for the bet to be successful. Including a line bet in your Same Game Multi Bet can be a good way of increasing your odds and potential payout.

Margin Bets

You can also bet on the margin of victory for a particular team. For example, you might bet on the Collingwood Magpies to win by 1-19 points. Including margin bets in your Same Game Multi Bet can add another layer of excitement to your wager and again increase your potential payout.

Total Points Over/Under

Another popular market for Same Game Multi Bets is the total points over/under. This bet involves wagering on whether the total points scored in the match will be over or under a certain amount.

Player Performance Bets

Finally, you can also include player performance bets in your Same Game Multi Bet. These types of bets allow you to wager on individual players and how they will perform in the match. For example, you might bet on a particular player to score the first goal or have the most possessions on the ground.

Just remember – the more amount of legs you include in a multi, the more opportunities there is for it to fail – so we recommend trying to find a sweet spot between 4 – 8 legs based on in-depth research of recent team and player performance to ensure the highest chances of success.
