AFL Round 13 Review (Season 2022)

Facts and Figures

Average Score: 73.25 points per team, which is fairly high, when taking into account four out of 12 teams scored 57 points or less.
Average Winning Margin: 24.5 points per game, which indicates there weren’t many close games. Despite that, only one game had a margin of more than 26 points.
