Richmond ($4.00) are the short favourites to win the 2019 AFL premiership, according to Sportsbet.

Currently paying $2.25 to lift the 2018 cup ahead of the Eagles ($7.00), Sportsbet is currently backing the Tigers in to claim a three-peat.

But could Richmond’s 2019 odds change if they don’t go all the way this September?

Sportsbet has West Coast and GWS ($7.00) as equal second-favourites to win the 2019 premiership, with Sydney, Melbourne and Collingwood ($8.00) dubbed equal third-favourites.

Essendon ($10.00) and Geelong ($12.00) cap off the top eight teams judged the best chance of claiming the 2019 flag.

At the other end, Gold Coast ($251.00), Carlton ($151.00) and Brisbane ($81.000) round out the bottom three.
