Footy Betting is available with AFL FootyTAB as a tote betting service.
Tote betting is pari-mutuel betting whereby all bets taken are placed into a pool and dividends are calculated by dividing the total pool size by the number of correct winning unitholders.
Types of footy betting available with the tote include Quarter Quad, AFL Winners, Tip 9 and various forms of margin betting.
One popular bet type on the tote is the Footy Tip 9. Tipsters must select the nine winners from the round of matches. All bets go into a pool with the proceeds divided amongst successful bets. Footy Tip 9 is an attractive bet type much like the quaddie, where the payouts can be large depending on the results.
FootyTAB betting is only available with the TAB. Where online bookmakers match prices and provide betting on other tote products, they do not simulate the FootyTAB products.
AFL betting is hugely popular in Australia as everyone seems to have an opinion on who’s going to win and by how much. Other forms of popular footy betting include margin betting and AFL line betting, detailed explanations of each can be found on their respective pages.
