2019 Anzac Day Medal Winner Betting Preview & Tips
History suggests with any best on-field medal that the winner will come from the winning team and it rings true in the ANZAC Day match with the last winner of the medal from the losing team being Chris Tarrant of Collingwood in 2001 when his team lost by 8-points.
Scott Pendlebury is the most prolific current player in these clashes, winning back-to-back medals in 2010 and 2011 as well as polling the equal most Brownlow votes (12) from these matches with James Hird. Last year’s winner Adam Treloar is coming off a best on ground display against the Lions and has polled Brownlow votes in the last three ANZAC Day games.
Steele Sidebottom, a past winner in 2016 polled the three Brownlow votes in last year’s game. Dylan Shiel will be playing in his first ANZAC Day match and likely only his second ever game in front of 90,000+. He played his best game in red and black last week and will be high on confidence. As will Zac Merrett who’s turned in three stunning weeks after he was met with plenty of criticism after the opening two rounds.
With all that being said, we think Collingwood will win the game so our tip for the medal is going to be a Magpie and we’re leaning towards Dayne Beams who’s ready to rip a game apart. He’s been solid without being outstanding in his first four matches (missed Round 4) for the Pies so it’s his time to show the Collingwood faithful what they’ve been missing.
