Brownlow Medal Predictor, Round 20 2022

The Brownlow Medal Predictor is back for AFL Season 2022.

All the projected votes, vote chances, key statistics, star ratings and leaderboards will be released gradually towards the latter stages of the 2022 AFL Season.  

The DailySportsBuddy Brownlow Medal Predictor uses a model that focuses on analysing matches and key statistics that have been consistent from past winners and top performers in previous Brownlow Medal Counts.

Statistics are not everything, but the award is generally a midfielder’s award, with midfielders making up most of the top ten in previous Brownlow Medal Counts.

It is impossible to predict the entire season’s votes in order, but with a bit of research, most players who are a chance of polling in any given match can be identified.

A Star ⭐ Rating is used to show the confidence level of each three-vote prediction.

⭐ = Tough Game to Pick

⭐⭐ = A Decent Chance

⭐⭐⭐ = Should get the Three Votes

The 2021 Brownlow Medal Predictor had a strike rate of 69.7% for three vote predictions last season.

There are many games each season where a player is a clear standout, and the three-star ratings for matches came in at 92.7%.

Max Gawn – 14 Disposals (12 Contested), 4 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 10 Hit-outs to advantage, 6 One Percenters, 5 Spoils and 1 Goal Assist

Bayley Fritsch – 14 Disposals, 6 Marks (4 Marks Inside 50), 5 Score Involvements, 5 Ground Ball Gets, 304 Metres Gained, 1 Goal Assist and 3 Goals

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Melbourne) Christian Petracca (21)

30 Disposals (26 Effective and 16 Contested), 6 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 10 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 8 Tackles (3 Tackles Inside 50), 491 Metres Gained and 1 Goal Assist

2 Votes (Melbourne) Angus Brayshaw (5)

28 Disposals (20 Effective and 13 Contested), 9 Intercept Possessions, 4 Clearances, 9 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 6 Tackles, 25 Pressure Acts, 564 Metres Gained and 1 Goal Assist

3 Votes (Melbourne) Jack Viney (9) ⭐⭐

33 Disposals (16 Contested), 7 Intercept Possessions, 4 Marks, 4 Clearances, 5 Inside 50s, 9 Score Involvements, 13 Ground Ball Gets, 6 Tackles, 28 Pressure Acts and 523 Metres Gained

Note – The Dockers hosted the Demons in a prime-time Friday Night fixture and again struggled in the slippery conditions.

The Demons in and under guns went to work, with Jack Viney having the most significant impact in the match, winning a stack of contested football, and he should be the favourite for highest vote honours.

Christian Petracca and Angus Brayshaw won a lot of the footy and helped the Demons attack for most of the contest, whilst Max Gawn won the ruck battle and Bayley Fritsch and Kysaiah Pickett were dangerous around the sticks.

James Aish went to Clayton Oliver and kept him relatively quiet, but Viney will be tough to beat for the top votes.


Collingwood vs Port Adelaide

Collingwood 13.10 88 – Port Adelaide 12.10 82

(Collingwood by 6 Points)

Vote Chances

Brayden Maynard – 21 Disposals (14 Effective), 11 Intercept Possessions, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 3 One Percenters, 3 Spoils and 469 Metres Gained

Ollie Wines – 30 Disposals (23 Effective and 12 Contested), 6 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 6 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 3 One Percenters, 6 Tackles (3 Tackles Inside 50), 20 Pressure Acts, 563 Metres Gained and 2 Goal Assists

Zak Butters – 25 Disposals (17 Effective and 10 Contested), 5 Marks, 4 Clearances, 7 Score Involvements, 8 Ground Ball Gets, 18 Pressure Acts, 441 Metres Gained, 1 Goal Assist and 2 Goals

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Collingwood) Jordan De Goey (9)

23 Disposals (13 Contested), 4 Intercept Possessions, 5 Clearances, 4 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets, 4 One Percenters, 470 Metres Gained, 1 Goal Assist and 2 Goals

2 Votes (Port Adelaide) Connor Rozee (15)

35 Disposals (28 Effective and 10 Contested), 4 Intercept Possessions, 6 Marks, 4 Clearances, 8 Inside 50s, 5 Score Involvements, 9 Ground Ball Gets, 5 Tackles, 20 Pressure Acts and 472 Metres Gained

3 Votes (Collingwood) Josh Daicos (4)

26 Disposals, 7 Intercept Possessions, 7 Marks (2 Intercept Marks), 6 Rebound 50s, 5 Score Involvements, 4 Ground Ball Gets, 16 Pressure Acts and 659 Metres Gained

Note – The Magpies won another close match with several contributors in a challenging game to split the votes.

Josh Daicos had some impressive moments, and a big third term to help the magpies establish a three-quarter time lead.

Jordan De Goey was dangerous with the footy, and Brayden Maynard had an impact down back for the Pies.

Connor Rozee led the way for the Power and continued his impressive break-out season with a stack of the football. He was well supported by Ollie Wines and Zak Butters in the loss.

Tough to split the votes in this clash, but the flashiness and smarts of Josh Daicos may stand out, and he had a noticeable impact on the result.


Sydney vs GWS

Sydney 17.10 112 – GWS 5.9 39

(Sydney by 73 Points)

Vote Chances

James Rowbottom – 23 Disposals (15 Effective), 4 Clearances, 6 Score Involvements, 4 Ground Ball Gets, 13 Tackles, 29 Pressure Acts, 413 Metres Gained, 1 Goal Assist and 1 Goal 

Callum Mills – 27 Disposals (20 Effective and 10 Contested), 8 Marks, 5 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 8 Ground Ball Gets, 5 Tackles, 442 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

Nick Blakey – 21 Disposals (19 Effective), 11 Intercept Possessions, 7 Marks (5 Intercept Marks), 6 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 3 One Percenters, 1 Goal Assist and 1 Goal

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Sydney) Sam Reid (3)

18 Disposals (15 Effective and 12 Contested), 5 Marks (2 Contested and 2 Marks Inside 50), 4 Clearances, 7 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 4 One Percenters, 4 Tackles, 1 Goal Assist and 3 Goals

2 Votes (Sydney) Errol Gulden (3)

3 Votes (Sydney) Luke Parker (10) ⭐⭐

34 Disposals (21 Effective and 16 Contested), 4 Intercept Possessions, 4 Marks, 6 Clearances, 4 Inside 50s, 8 Score Involvements, 13 Ground Ball Gets, 7 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50), 22 Pressure Acts and 1 Goal Assist

Note – The Swans had no issues against the Giants and won the match by a comfortable margin at the SCG.

Luke Parker will lead the charge for the top votes with a solid performance in the middle of the ground, and he racked up a stack of the football.

Errol Gulden was busy around the forward half for most of the match and had a significant impact, whilst Sam Reid had some impressive moments and snagged 3 goals.

It will likely be a battle between two for the top votes in this clash, with Parker and Gulden the likely favourites.


St Kilda vs Hawthorn

St Kilda 10.15 75 – Hawthorn 9.9 63

(St Kilda by 12 Points)

Seb Ross – 26 Disposals (21 Effective and 10 Contested), 4 Intercept Possessions, 4 Clearances, 7 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets, 7 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50), 20 Pressure Acts and 1 Goal

Note – The Saints got the win, but the Hawks came back in the final stages to make it interesting.

Saints ruckman Rowan Marshall was a clear best on ground in the win. Marshall won a lot of the football, and his ruck work helped the Saints win first use of the footy on several occasions.

Brad Crouch had a busy day in the midfield, as did Jack Steele, but Marshall will be very tough to beat for the top votes and seemed everywhere at stages.


Geelong vs Western Bulldogs

Geelong 14.10 94 – Western Bulldogs 9.12 66

(Geelong by 28 Points)

Vote Chances

Brad Close – 19 Disposals (14 Effective), 4 Marks, 4 Inside 50s, 8 Score Involvements, 7 Tackles (3 Tackles Inside 50), 25 Pressure Acts, 2 Goal Assists and 1 Goal

Tom Stewart – 22 Disposals (20 Effective), 7 Intercept Possessions, 10 Marks (3 Intercept Marks), 5 One Percenters, 5 Spoils, 490 Metres Gained and 1 Goal Assist

Note – The Dogs led early, but the Cats were too good for the Bulldogs and had many contributors in a tough match to split the votes.

Patrick Dangerfield will be one of the leading contenders for the top votes, whilst Cam Guthrie and Isaac Smith were busy throughout the win, and Brad Close was dangerous on the offensive half for the Cats.

A tough match to split, but Dangerfield gets the nod as he had some impressive moments and some defensive acts that stood out at stages.


Adelaide vs Carlton

Adelaide 12.12 84 – Carlton 8.7 55

(Adelaide by 29 Points)

Rory Laird – 32 Disposals (25 Effective and 15 Contested), 8 Clearances, 5 Inside 50s, 5 Rebound 50s, 8 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 12 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50), 30 Pressure Acts and 592 Metres Gained

Note – The Crows upset the Blues in Adelaide and had several players contributing to the win.

A tough match to split the votes with several contenders, but the Crows got the win, and Brodie Smith racked up a lot of the footy and was willing to move the ball forward with 1019 metres gained and a massive 13 inside 50s. He had a noticeable impact in the win and is a genuine chance for the top votes.

Ben Keays was the X-Factor with a move to the forward half, and he had some impressive moments hitting the scoreboard with 3 goals.

Suns midfielder Touk Miller was brilliant in the win and racked up a lot of the footy to go along with a massive 15 clearances.

Miller will be tough to beat for the top votes and was a clear best on ground, whilst Noah Anderson and Matt Rowell had an impact in the middle, and Mabior Chol booted 5 goals from limited opportunities.
