Champion Data has calculated each side’s chances of winning this season’s premiership.

The Tigers are favoured with a 32% liklihood of going back-to-back after locking away top spot on the ladder. The Giants are backed as runners up with a 16% of winning the flag, a prospect that will hinge on how well they can survive their recently injury toll.

Champion Data ranks Collingwood as third favourites, just behind the Giants at 14%, despite currently sitting outside the top four. The Pies would would have to overcome their own wretched run of injuries.

The Demons come in next with a 9% chance, despite many claiming that they will miss the finals altogether. The Hawks and Eagles are given an equal 9% chance of going all the way, despite the latter securing a home final and a double chance.

The Cats come in at 7%, who currently sit outside the eight, and the Swans are just trailing them at 6% following impressive wins over Collingwood and Melbourne.

Port Adelaide are considered a 1% chance, while North Melbourne and Essendon’s campaigns are all but over, with both clubs dubbed less than a 1% probability of claiming the holy grail.
