Sportsbet’s punting AFL guru and star of the Richo, Browny and Hummer podcast, Nathan Brown, gives his AFL tips for the upcoming weekend of matches. Here’s Browny’s AFL tips for week 1 of the finals.

Best Bet

Lachie Whitfield

25+ disposals
Running machine and the big deck suits him. Great record at Optus Stadium having 25+ four of the last five times he’s played there.

Next Best

Over 152.5

Total Match Points
Both the sides average over 90 points a game. The Gabba is a high-scoring venue, the weather looks to be okay so for me the doggies can’t defend to win in a low scoring slog, they need to attack and kick a winning total

Value Bet

Tim Taranto

2+ goals
With no Toby Green playing, this guy needs to go forward and kick goals. The last time Toby Green didn’t play was against the Tigers back in round 22 and Taranto kicked 4 goals. Pound for pound he’s one of the best contested marks in the game and has natural forward craft
