Footy betting, line betting, afl analysis

Pete Roberts spent over a decade working full-time in AFL analysis and tech, ensuring players and coaches got the insights they needed to execute on game day. He joins us at the halfway point of a bizarre 2020 footy season to give us his thoughts, and provide some insights into how AFL clubs measure success internally – can we learn from that as fans, viewers and punters?

The Betting 360 Podcast is brought to you by TopSport.
