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

Here is the **Brownlow Medal Predictor for Round 3 **of the **2022 AFL Season.**

Good luck picking a winner for any category this season, and always remember to **Gamble Responsibly.**

**Note – **The Bulldogs were too good for the Swans on a Friday Night, and big Ruckman **Tim English** stood out. English made the most of Swans ruckman **Tom Hickey** having to leave the ground through injury, but his ruck work helped the Bulldogs create many scoring chances and went a long way in helping the Dogs get the win.

**Melbourne vs Essendon**

*Melbourne 14.15 99 – Essendon 10.10 70*

*Melbourne 14.15 99 – Essendon 10.10 70*

**Vote Chances**

**Max Gawn – **22 Disposals (15 Effective and 13 Contested), 5 Marks (2 Contested and 2 Marks Inside 50), 6 Clearances, 5 One Percenters and 396 Metres Gained

**Sam Weideman –** 11 Disposals, 7 Marks (6 Marks Inside 50 and 2 Contested), 7 Score Involvements and 4 Goals

**Peter Wright –** 10 Disposals, 5 Marks (5 Marks Inside 50 and 3 Contested), 8 Score Involvements and 4 Goals

**Projected Votes**

**1 Vote (Melbourne) Ed Langdon (1)**

31 Disposals, 5 Marks, 8 Score Involvements, 5 Ground Ball Gets, 490 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

**2 Votes (Melbourne) Angus Brayshaw (2)**

34 Disposals (29 Effective), 8 Intercept Possessions, 20 Marks (5 Intercept Marks), 5 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements and 518 Metres Gained

**3 Votes (Melbourne) Clayton Oliver (5) **⭐⭐

38 Disposals (25 Effective and 18 Contested), 5 Intercept Possessions, 8 Marks, 8 Clearances, 15 Inside 50s, 9 Score Involvements, 15 Ground Ball Gets, 666 Metres Gained and 3 Goal Assists

**Note –** A battle between two for highest vote honours, and most football purists will remember the finish** Angus Brayshaw** had to the **2018 Brownlow Medal count **as he kept racking up the votes.

Brayshaw took 20 marks in this match, but 19 of them were uncontested, and **Clayton Oliver** was probably the best player on the ground with a staggering 15 inside 50s.

Oliver gets the nod, but Brayshaw is also a decent shot at the maximum votes.

**Adelaide vs Port Adelaide**

*Adelaide 15.6 96 – Port Adelaide 13.14 92*

*Adelaide 15.6 96 – Port Adelaide 13.14 92*

**Ben Keays –** 25 Disposals (17 Effective and 16 Contested), 11 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 11 Ground Ball Gets, 7 Tackles and 27 Pressure Acts

**Ollie Wines – **30 Disposals (14 Contested), 4 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 6 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 5 One Percenters, 7 Tackles, 32 Pressure Acts and 419 Metres Gained

**Projected Votes**

**1 Vote (Adelaide) Elliott Himmelberg (1)**

14 Disposals (13 Effective), 8 Marks (4 Contested and 3 Marks Inside 50), 7 Score Involvements and 4 Goals

**2 Votes (Adelaide) Rory Laird (2)**

31 Disposals (22 Effective and 15 Contested), 5 Intercept Possessions, 7 Clearances, 8 Score Involvements, 9 Ground Ball Gets, 4 Tackles and 25 Pressure Acts

24 Disposals (17 Effective), 6 Marks (2 Contested), 5 Inside 50s, 6 Rebound 50s, 5 Score Involvements, 664 Metres Gained and 2 Goals

**Note –** **Jordan Dawson** kicked the winning goal after the siren, and the Crows won the Showdown as the underdogs. Dawson was solid for most of the evening down back and will be tough to beat for highest vote honours.

A couple of star midfielders for both sides had decent games and will battle it out for the minor votes, but a young Crows forward was an X-Factor with two final-quarter goals.

**GWS vs Gold Coast**

*GWS 12.11 83 – Gold Coast 8.9 57*

*GWS 12.11 83 – Gold Coast 8.9 57*

*(GWS by 26 Points)*

*(GWS by 26 Points)*

**Vote Chances**

**Braydon Preuss –** 16 Disposals (12 Contested and 11 Effective), 5 Marks (2 Contested), 7 Clearances, 4 Inside 50s, 5 Score Involvements, 9 Hit-outs to advantage, 5 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50), 13 Pressure Acts and 1 Goal Assist

**Jesse Hogan –** 17 Disposals (12 Effective), 7 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 8 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets and 2 Goals

**Matt Rowell –** 18 Disposals (15 Effective and 11 Contested), 5 Intercept Possessions, 5 Clearances, 7 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets, 13 Tackles and 43 Pressure Acts

**Projected Votes**

**1 Vote (GWS) Tim Taranto (1)**

36 Disposals (23 Effective and 11 Contested), 6 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 5 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 8 Tackles, 21 Pressure Acts, 655 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

**2 Votes (GWS) Stephen Coniglio (2)**

32 Disposals (23 Effective and 13 Contested), 10 Clearances, 8 Inside 50s, 12 Score Involvements, 11 Ground Ball Gets, 5 Tackles, 481 Metres Gained and 2 Goal Assists

**3 Votes (GWS) Tom Green (5) **⭐

29 Disposals (20 Effective and 16 Contested), 7 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 10 Score Involvements, 11 Ground Ball Gets, 4 Tackles, 17 Pressure Acts, 597 Metres Gained and 2 Goals

**Note –** The Giants had three standouts in this clash, and it will be tough to separate the votes, but **Tom Green** gets the nod as he hit the scoreboard with a couple of goals and had a consistent match.

The votes could go either way here, but it would be surprising if any of the three GWS midfielders named don’t poll a vote in this match.

**Collingwood vs Geelong**

*Collingwood 13.13 91 – Geelong 16.8 104*

*Collingwood 13.13 91 – Geelong 16.8 104*

**Taylor Adams – **30 Disposals (13 Contested), 8 Clearances, 10 Score Involvements, 10 Ground Ball Gets and 18 Pressure Acts

**Isaac Quaynor –** 21 Disposals (18 Effective), 12 Intercept Possessions, 7 Marks (3 Intercept Marks), 4 Inside 50s, 5 Rebound 50s, 6 Ground Ball Gets and 458 Metres Gained

**Projected Votes**

**1 Vote (Geelong) Tom Stewart (1)**

29 Disposals (23 Effective), 13 Intercept Possessions, 5 Marks (2 Intercept Marks), 14 Rebound 50s, 5 One Percenters, 5 Spoils, 5 Ground Ball Gets and 767 Metres Gained

**2 Votes (Geelong) Patrick Dangerfield (5)**

25 Disposals (17 Effective and 12 Contested), 5 Intercept Possessions, 5 Marks (2 Contested), 5 Clearances, 6 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets, 5 Tackles, 20 Pressure Acts, 550 Metres Gained and 1 Goal

**3 Votes (Geelong) Jeremy Cameron (3) **⭐⭐⭐

14 Disposals (11 Effective), 9 Marks (5 Marks Inside 50), 7 Score Involvements, 3 One Percenters, 3 Spoils and 6 Goals

**Note –** The Cats trailed by 30 points at the final break, and **Jeremy Cameron** booted three goals in the last term to be a real X-Factor. Cameron will be a red-hot favourite for the maximum votes in the win, with a couple of experienced Cats a decent chance at the minor votes.

**Brisbane vs North Melbourne**

*Brisbane 23.18 156 – North Melbourne 7.6 48*

**Hugh McCluggage –** 29 Disposals, 6 Marks, 4 Clearances, 8 Inside 50s, 8 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets, 4 Tackles (3 Tackles Inside 50), 23 Pressure Acts and 456 Metres Gained

**Charlie Cameron –** 17 Disposals, 10 Marks (8 Marks Inside 50 and 3 Contested), 13 Score Involvements, 4 Tackles (4 Tackles Inside 50), 3 One Percenters and 2 Goals

**Projected Votes**

17 Disposals (12 Effective), 4 Inside 50s, 11 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets, 4 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50), 32 Pressure Acts, 454 Metres Gained and 4 Goals

**2 Votes (Brisbane) Lincoln McCarthy (2)**

15 Disposals, 8 Marks (5 Marks Inside 50), 5 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements and 5 Goals

**3 Votes (Brisbane) Jarryd Lyons (3) **⭐⭐

28 Disposals (20 Effective), 8 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 6 Clearances, 9 Inside 50s, 12 Score Involvements, 5 Ground Ball Gets, 23 Pressure Acts, 668 Metres Gained, 4 Goal Assists and 2 Goals

**Note –** The Lions led from start to finish in this clash, and **Jarryd Lyons, **who polled well in the count last season, will be tough to beat for highest vote honours. Most of his disposals were kicks, and he helped create many scoring chances in the sizeable win.

**Carlton vs Hawthorn**

*Carlton 11.8 74 – Hawthorn 11.7 73*

*Carlton 11.8 74 – Hawthorn 11.7 73*

**George Hewett –** 28 Disposals (22 Effective and 11 Contested), 5 Marks, 9 Clearances, 9 Tackles (2 Tackles Inside 50), 4 One Percenters and 23 Pressure Acts

**James Sicily –** 24 Disposals (19 Effective), 10 Intercept Possessions, 9 Marks (2 Intercept Marks), 5 Rebound 50s, 4 Ground Ball Gets, 4 One Percenters and 563 Metres Gained

**Projected Votes**

**1 Vote (Carlton) Sam Docherty (1)**

33 Disposals (29 Effective), 9 Intercept Possessions, 13 Marks (3 Intercept Marks), 5 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets and 1 Goal Assist

**2 Votes (Hawthorn) Changkuoth Jiath (2)**

27 Disposals (22 Effective), 10 Intercept Possessions, 8 Marks (3 Intercept Marks and 2 Contested), 11 Rebound 50s, 6 Score Involvements, 4 Ground Ball Gets and 588 Metres Gained

**Note –** The Blues got the narrow win, and** Patrick Cripps** was again one of the better midfielders on the ground and applied a lot of pressure on the opposition. Cripps will be the favourite for the maximum votes, but the distinct run and carry of **Changkuoth Jiath **does stand out, and he had a big game for the Hawks down back.

**St Kilda vs Richmond**

*St Kilda 18.9 117 – Richmond 13.6 84*

*St Kilda 18.9 117 – Richmond 13.6 84*

29 Disposals (21 Effective and 15 Contested), 11 Clearances, 9 Score Involvements, 9 Ground Ball Gets, 9 Tackles, 34 Pressure Acts and 1 Goal

**Note –** **Brad Crouch** won the **Ian Stewart Medal **and won a lot of the football whilst applying pressure on the opposition midfielders. He will be tough to beat for highest vote honours.

The minor votes could go to several players, but the Saints dominated the last term, and **Max King **booted 4 goals and took 6 marks inside the forward fifty to be the X-Factor in deciding the match.

**West Coast vs Fremantle**

**West Coast 7.5 47 – Fremantle 15.12 102**

23 Disposals (18 Effective), 8 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 9 Score Involvements, 6 Ground Ball Gets, 3 Tackles (3 Tackles Inside 50), 3 Goal Assists and 2 Goals
