AFL Betting Tips Round 18 Preview & Tips:

KANGAROOS vs WEST COAST  

The last round of the season starts off with the Kangaroos & Eagles. The Roos will be happy to get the season over and done with, the injuries and the lack of depth in their team has really been found out this year. The Eagles will be looking to get on a roll before the finals. Nick Nat Gaff & Tim Kelly will be the keys for them in the finals but this game is all about getting Kennedy in form by kicking a bag

Suggested Bets: Eagles -15.5 $ 1.40

ST KILDA  vs GWS

Another great game in this round is on Friday night between the Saints who are currently 7th & GWS who are 10 and a very small outside chance to make the finals. GWS will need to win by a lot to get enough percentage to sneak in, I just don’t see that happening as the saints are a very good side all over the park and GWS have been very disappointing in stages this year. The saints will miss Zac Jones who is out this week with a hamstring but I feel the saints will be just good enough

Suggested Bets: SAINTS 1-39 $1.85

ESSENDON vs MELBOURNE  

With the demons sitting 9th this is the best chance of winning in the last round & taking the final spot in the finals. The Demons have been playing some good football late in the season & with the Bombers not really beating teams higher than them on the latter the demons should get over the line & make it a very interesting time on Sunday, when the Bulldogs take on Freo, need to win to knock the Demons out of the finals

Suggested Bets: DEMONS 1-39 $ 1.80

CROWS vs RICHMOND

A month of go the crows were looking at trying to get their first win of the year not they are hoping to pull off the greatest escape beating the Tigers and getting off the bottom of the ladder. The Crows are a change of doing it with the tigers expected to rest some stars thanks to their win over the cats last week & a top 4 spot almost sewn up. Depending on how many players they rest this game will be close as the tigers are playing really tough football. Expect Jack & Tom Lynch to kick a bag full of goals if the tigers go in close to full strength.

Suggested Bets: RICHMOND 1-39 $ 1.75

 BRISBANE Vs CARLTON

Well, the Lions will be over the moon right now with the Chance to play every finals game at the Gabba including the Grand Final they are 6 points clear of the tigers in third and have the chance to make up for last year where they went out in straight sets. With Hipwood & Cameron up forward they need to start to kick straight with recent score lines that have been better thanks to playing sides with fewer pressure acts they have kicked well but against the better sides, they have kicked a lot more points than goals. Carlton will be hoping to be positive with a good win and a way to send out club champion Kade Simpson the right way like his great mate Bryce Gibbs went out last week

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE OVER 115 $2.30

HAWTHORN vs GOLD COAST

In a game that is between two sides that won’t make the finals this year, the Hawks will be hoping to send out a couple of triple premiership players out with a win against the Suns. The Suns have been a very good side all year and they will only improve in 2021 while the hawks are in a changing of the guard between the premiership stars of yesteryears & the new stars like Will Day &  James Worpel. to see what Clarkson will come up with next year will be very interesting for the hawks but I feel the Suns have more upside in this one

Suggested Bets: SUNS 1-39 $1.80

SWANS  vs CATS

The Cats will be looking to get back on the winner’s list after a disappoint lost against the Tigers last week. They were looking unstoppable until they played last week but with Gary Abblett out of isolation & back with the team, they will stronger than ever. The Swans have played with a lot of heart this year without buddy franklin they may be the big improver next year if Buddy can get fit but they still need to to go back to the draft & build for the future. Cats to win this one but the swans will give them a good test before the finals.

Suggested Bets: CATS  1-39 $1.80

FREO vs BULLDOGS

This could be a very special game with the bulldogs needing to win this to move back into the final 8. The Bulldogs were great against the hawks last week & go into this game in great form. with this game being play @ Cazaly Stadium anything could happen but I think it will be a low scoring game. The Dockers have been very good in defence all year while the bulldogs like to play with a man behind the ball, They should be just too good & take the last spot in the finals off the Demons

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS under 125 $2.65

COLLINGWOOD Vs PORT

The Battle Between the 2 magpies Collingwood & Port it looks like the Power have been setting up the 150 years of their great club as a year to remember. They are on top of the ladder & crowned as the minor premiers so heading into the finals with a win against the Pies. I’m not sure if the Power will be resting some of their stars & with Travis Boak a chance to win the Brownlow he can be leading the Power to the premiership. Collingwood has been disappointing in my eyes they struggle to kick a winning score & any side that has mason Cox as the main forward he just doesn’t present as a lead-up target like the great key forwards

Suggested Bets: PORT $1.65

AFL Betting Tips Round 17 Preview & Tips:

SAINTS vs WEST COAST  

Thursday night football starts with the match that we could be watching in the first week of the finals. St Kilda is currently 6th on the ladder while the West Coast Eagles are 5th. The Eagles have been a lot more inconsistent in QLD this year. If this game was being played in WA they would be unbackable. While the Saints have a good record in QLD & coming off a good competitive game against the Hawks last week I give the saints a great chance to win this. I expect WCE to bring back a host of premiership players including Nick Nat & Shuey this means ill be taking the Eagles

Suggested Bets: Eagles 1-39 $ 2.40

GEELONG  vs RICHMOND

Another great game in this round & what could easily be a prelim or Grand Final Geelong & Richmond. The Cats are playing amazing football & to think they still need to find a spot for Ablett & Selwood, The Tomahawk is unstoppable at the moment. Dusty was kept quiet on the weekend and he will be looking for a big game while the tigers are getting a lot out of their young players in the midfield like Bolton they will find the Cats a little hard to handle & a little to strong down back

Suggested Bets: Geelong  1-39 $1.85

DOCKERS  vs KANGAROOS’ 

We move from 2 great games to a game between 13th & 17th sides on the ladder in Freo & North Melbourne. I really like how the dockers keep fighting in every game. They have built a game plan on defending & it keeps them in-game for a majority of the year Justin Longmuir should really be praised on the way he has coached this side. They have spent money on getting big forwards like Hogan McCarthey & Lobb with Lobb the only one I would keep for next year. If the dockers can find a way to score they will be a much better side next year. Look for this to be a low scoring game as the Kangaroos are still struggling to kick goals.

Suggested Bets: DOCKERS 1-39 $ 1.80

PORT vs ESSENDON

The Power is sitting pretty on top of the ladder. They are playing like the best team in the comp & its from the depth of talent they have around the park. Charlie Dixon up forward kicking bags of goals Travis Boak in the middle is putting together a Brownlow winning season. They are also very underrated in defence but that is they hold on to the ball so well around the ground. Ken Hinkley has really got his team firing just before finals.

Suggested Bets: PORT -15.5 $ 1.75

GWS  vs MELBOURNE

We have a real 8 point game here between 2 sides that are fighting for the final spot in the 8. GWS is currently in that spot but has the Bulldogs & Melbourne breathing down their necks. Both teams were very disappointing last week with Melbourne losing to the Dockers & not taking their chances at all when the pressure was on at the end of the game. GWS we worst they struggled to get the ball in the forward 50 against the Crows, who have now won 2 in a row. GWS have struggled to kick a winning score all year & something is not right with the game plan in Canberra. They have gone from a high scoring great attacking side that made it all the way to the grand final. to a side, that struggles to get 35 inside 50 a game which is the one of the lowest in the league. I don’t really like this game much but I think Melbourne & low scoring is the way to go

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE 1-39 Under 125.5 $3.30

CARLTON vs ADELAIDE

In a game that could put up another crazy outcome in a crazy season, we have the bottom of the table crows coming off 2 straight wins against the Blues. 2 weeks ago all the talk was are the Crows going to win a game this year. Now with 2 in a row, they are looking for a third & they have a chance to do that against the Blues who got out of jail against the swans during the week. with a shorter turn around it will be tougher for the Blues but the Crows are moving away from SA so that evens the game up & with the Blues playing better football for a majority of the year I have to go with them in a game that will be closer than people may think.

Suggested Bets: BLUES 1-39 $1.80

HAWTHORN  vs BULLDOGS

At the Adelaide oval, we have the Hawks & bulldogs taking on each other. The Dogs are still fighting for a finals position & last week with a 2 point win over West Coast they showed they want to play finals and if they get in they may have a deep run like they did when they won the flag a couple of years ago. They hawks season is over and with more injuries, the hawks are playing a very young side with some players like Will Day & Mitchell Lewis stepping up to show what the future is going to look like at hawthorn. Dogs will be too strong here but the hawks will like playing in what looks to be great conditions.

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS  1-39 $1.80

SWANS Vs LIONS

The Swans will be looking to bounce back against the Lions here after giving up the Win against the Blues mid-week. The Lions on the other hand will be looking to win this game & keep a spot in the top 4. The problem with the Lions is they struggle to kick straight & that charlie Cameron looks to be playing injured. They may need to rest one or 2 players just so they are cherry ripe for the finals. With a win here they should be able to do that. One Player that keeps on playing fantastic football is Lockie Neale we tipped him at the start of the year to win the Brownlow & I would be shocked if he doesn’t win it this year. The Swans will put up a fight here but it should be an easy win for Brisbane.

Suggested Bets: LIONS -15.5 $1.65

COLLINGWOOD vs SUNS

The Suns take on the Pies & this is going to be a really close game to finish off the round. Like Freo, I think the Suns & Stewy Dew need to be congratulated with the way they have played this year. They picked the right coach to take them to the next step in a couple of years & with the best young list in the AFL the Suns look to have a great future. King & sexton up forward is a great combo that I like a lot they will cause the Pies a lot of trouble in this game. The midfield is young but with Ellis in there to help build some of the best talents in the country they improved every week. Collingwood still needs the same players to dominate week in week out. They are great defensively but lack so much up forward it has cost them getting into the top 4 & being a premiership contender. Going for an upset here Suns at the Plus

AFL Betting Tips Round 15 & 16 Preview & Tips:

SYDNEY vs MELBOURNE 

This round has another  Thursday afternoon/ Night Doubleheader with the Swans and Demons playing at 4.45 pm. The way the Demons are playing at the moment they should get an easy win. They have been amazing at moving the football forward & the swans are still struggling to score this is why the Demons under 122.5 is our bet in this game.

Suggested Bets: DEMONS UNDER 122.5 $ 2.80

GIANTS  vs CARLTON

In the final game of Thursday night, we have the Giants & the Blues playing in a real 8 point game that could end the finals chances for one side. These 2 sides are very well matched. I feel the midfield of the Giants is going to be able to get on top of the Blues. with a little more skill and running ability but its up forward that the giants need to get on top of the Blues if they can do that they should run out winners and keep their finals chances alive

Suggested Bets: GWS  1-39 $1.95

BRISBANE vs COLLINGWOOD

Brisbane takes on Collingwood in what could be game of the round. The lions who deserve to be the favourite need to improve if they are going to be a final 4 side. A win against the Magpies will help towards that cause. The Lions need to kick straighter towards goal, they have no problem getting the ball in the forward 50 but the inaccurate kick has cost them a game or two and if they keep it up it may cost them a final. The Pies are great defensively but I feel the lions forwards are playing better football.

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE 1-39  $1.85

AFL Round 16 Preview & Tips

PORT  vs KANGAROOS’ 

This game looks like a massive mismatch with the top of the table Power against the 17th placed Roos. The Roos are struggling to do anything positive at the moment. the last 3 games they have scored 100 points total while the Power are the highest-scoring team in the league. They deserve to be on top of the ladder & will be looking to fine-tune themself with a big win before the finals

Suggested Bets: PORT -15.5 $ 1.50

St KILDA vs HAWTHORN

The saints & hawks have been on a little bit of a losing streak recently but with the saints only just losing to the Lions & the in-form Demons. While the hawks looked poor against the winless Crows. They had no run and continue to play around with the ball. This helped a poor pressure side like the crows to tackle there way to a win. The Saints need to win this game to get back on track as they are sitting 7th with a lot of teams trying to get the final spots in the top 8

Suggested Bets: SAINTS 1-39 $ 1.75

GEELONG vs BOMBERS

The Cats are missing some stars but they still sit 2nd on the ladder with a game style that just keeps on winning. This week they take on the Bombers whos season will be over if they cant win this game. With Joe back, the bombers have looked a little more dangerous up forward but I don’t think it will be enough to stop the Cats & the Tomahawk.

Suggested Bets: GEELONG  $1.30

EAGLES Vs BULLDOGS

In a game that could put up an upset, we have the bulldogs against the eagles. The Eagles don’t have the best record in QLD & if this game was in WA I would make the eagles my bet of the week, but in Qld, the bulldogs have a chance to cause an upset with their small forward line. You can also look at this game another way, you have the finals bound eagles that are $1.65 just to win this game or $ 1.92 to win 1-39 and that looks too good to not back.

Suggested Bets: EAGLES 1-39 $1.91

MELBOURNE  Vs FREO

The Dockers play their second game in quick succession when they take on the Demons. Freo are playing good football but they just seem to be 20% under the really good teams and we found that when they took on the tigers. The Demons are playing great football and should really should beat the dockers. the Demons will set up the same way the Tigers did by keeping the ball in the inside their forward 50

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE 1-39  $1.90

CROWNS Vs GIANTS

What will the Crows do now they have the pressure off after beating the hawks. Well, they will have to be at there best to win against the Giants. The Giants will keep fighting to keep their finals hopes alive & with a win that we all expect them to get here they will be hoping to get extra percentages & scrap into the eight

Suggested Bets: GIANTS Under 125.5 $2.45

CARLTON Vs SWANS

Both sides won’t be playing finals this year but the Blues and swans still have a lot to play for here. The Blues are putting together a very nice side that has [postives like Harry Mckay and welsh that will help them become a finals team in the future while the swans still missing buddy may need to rebuild to become the dominant force we expect them to be each year. Carlton should win this in a low scoring game as Sydney still struggle to kick a match-winning score.

Suggested Bets: CARLTON Under 125.5  $2.45

LIONS vs SUNS

The Battle of QLD is our last game here as the Lions take on the young Gold Coast suns. The Suns have a lot going for them with King up forward and some of the best young midfielders in the league the future looks great for them. The lions, on the other hand, are looking to cermet a top 2 spot so they don’t have to leave QLD & make a home grand final now that it been announced to be played in QLD. They will need to get the goal kicking fixed & hopefully they can start by kicking a big score against the suns in this one.

AFL Betting Tips Round 14 Preview & Tips:

HAWTHORN vs BOMBERS 

This round starts with a Thursday afternoon/ Night Doubleheader with the Hawks and Bombers playing at 4.40 pm. This is a very even match when it comes down to the stats. Both sides are having problems getting the ball into the 50 & kicking goals without big forwards doing their job. The Hawks were really good last week at against Power while the Bombers did a lot of their scoring when the game was over & in hot conditions this could just cost them another game

Suggested Bets: Hawks over 122.5 $ 2.80

TIGERS  vs WEST COAST

What a game this could turn out to be. The Tigers are playing good football and the forwards are starting to kick goals. While the Eagle has finally found their mojo & are playing a lot better football since the last time they came to QLD. I really like the Eagle and the way they have been playing, if this game was in WA the eagle would be lost to my bet of the round. The Tigers & dusty have every chance to win this game they play this ground well & with the forwards firing anything could happen but I hope the Eagles will be just too strong in a good close game.

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST  1-39 $1.95

BULLDOGS vs GEELONG

The Bulldogs play Friday night against the Cats. What can you say about the cats, every year they just keep finding ways to win games and stay at the top of the ladder. This year the are kicking goals but it the defence that has been stronger averaging on 50 points against them each game its one of the best defences in the league. The Bulldogs have a very small forward line that will give the cats defence something different to stop but the should be able to & record another win

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39  $1.85

PORT  vs SYDNEY 

This game looks like a massive mismatch with the top of the table Power against the 16th placed Swans. The swans year go worst last week with Buddy being ruled out for the season with a hamstring injury. The Power just got over the line against the hawks but they still played some very tough football. With a skilful midfield, they should stay on top of the table with an easy win here that I think will stay under the 122 total points scoreline as well.

Suggested Bets: PORT -15.5 $ 1.50

FREO vs GWS

Freo takes on the Giants at Optus in an afternoon game that all the stats point to a low scoring game. Both sides average under 53 points while both sides also average below average scores kick against them. With Freo only allowing 37 points kicked on them per game with this being the case the line is 114 @ 1.90 but I believe that the giants will be too strong thanks to a better forward line and a high quality midfield. so expecting the dockers to only score a few goals here  GWS 1-39 looks a good bet.

Suggested Bets: GWS 1-39 $ 1.95

MELBOURNE  vs SAINTS

Melbourne comes off a loss to the Bulldogs last week & I find it funny that the bookies have this game so close. As we all know I have been a massive fan of the saints all year & had them as the big improver this year. With a Great young key Forward and a midfield that keeps on running and getting the ball into the 50 with ease, the Saints are playing the type of football that can cause a couple of upsets in the finals. So to be getting $1.80 for the saints to win on the weekend is money for jam in my opinion

Suggested Bets: ST KILDA $1.80

CARLTON vs MAGPIES

In a game that puts to of the oldest teams & rivals against each other, the blues and pies will be playing for a lot more than bragging rights ar work for their supporters. The Pies have found their way into the 8 and its on the back of a very strong defence. even without Jermey Howe, the pies are keeping teams to low score which will help them as the Forward line is terrible and needs all the help it can get. The Blues, on the other hand, are building and a good team that will be a finals team in 2-3 years once the young players get used to AFL football. Collingwood in a close one

Suggested Bets: Collingwood Under 120.5 $2.45

GOLD COAST  vs KANGAROOS

The Suns take on the Roos in the last game of this round. The Suns have been a bright spark this year and Stewy Dew needs to be congratulated on how he has got them playing. With great young players & King up forward the future is starting to look bright for the Suns. The Roos on the other hand has a lot of good players on the sidelines. They need to find a way to get game into some of the young players to find out if they are up to the AFL standard or if they are just a list clogger. This is why I have to go with the Suns.

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 13 Preview & Tips:

SUNS vs BLUES 

Round 12 starts with a Gold Coast Suns who played on Monday night taking the short break & taking on the Blues in the NT. The suns put up a good show against the Tigers. They were great at getting repeat entries & holding the Tigers down for 3 quarters but it finally caught up with them. This short break will be even tougher the Blues just got after the line thanks to an after the siren goal in a low scoring game. I think will be the same

Suggested Bets: BLUES under 122.5 $ 2.80

BULLDOGS  vs MELBOURNE

Melbourne go into this game with a winning streak after knocking off the Magpies and Kangaroos they are playing some inspired football but with the chance of going into this game without a Ruckman due to injury, this game is now a 50/50 contest. The Bulldogs were lead last week by a fantastic game from the Bont. He has been a little down this year but if he can put a couple of good games together the bulldogs may be able to finish the year strong with a few wins.

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE  1-39 $1.95

PORT VS HAWTHORN

The Power takes on the hawks at the Adelaide Oval. 2 sides at totally different ends of the ladder. The hawks are playing terrible and with a lot of injuries including the latest of Sicily. The Hawks need to start playing the younger players to see if they have to go back to the draft or if they will need to clean house. The hawks will be struggling to win this game. While Port has a tall forward line that I expect to get the job done thanks to the great delivery from Boak & Co. Port will be looking for a big percentage boost to stay on top of the ladder.

Suggested Bets: PORT -15.5  $1.45

ESSENDON vs RICHMOND 

This game is the dream time game between the Bombers and Tigers but this time is being played in the NT. These two sides are going to be moving the ball as fast as they can but both have been struggling to kick winning scores for the majority of the year Tom Lynch should be suspended after hitting the Sun’s fullback in the gut. With the Bombers getting back some start players I feel they may just struggle to run out the full 4 quarters and the tigers will win this one in a close game

Suggested Bets: RICHMOND 1-39 $ 1.85

FREO Vs SYDNEY

Fremantle take on the swans in a very interesting game on Saturday night. The Dockers have been competitive winning 2 of their last 3 games and only just losing last week to a kick after the final siren. The young midfielders are starting to play well and with targets like Rory lobb & Nat Fyfe playing down forward they are starting to kick winning scores. The swans on the other hand are still struggling to kick big scores or getting back to back forward entries.

This is why I have to go with the dockers in a low scoring affair.

Suggested Bets: FREO 1-39 $ 1.85

GEELONG  Vs CROWS

Geelong takes on the winless Crows in Adelaide. The Cats are starting to click with Tom Hawkins still being the massive target up forward. He is kicking multiple goals the last few weeks and with the young players starting to fire & Dangerfield playing well this will be an easy win for the cats. The Crows need to get a win this year but this game won’t be it

Suggested Bets: GEELONG  -15.5 $1.40

SAINTS vs LIONS

The Saints will be playing the Lions in the game of the round, The fast movement has been a hallmark of both sides this year but the saints have been a lot straighter at kicking goals. The Lions have cost them self percentage and even a couple of games thanks to poor kicking. besides that the lions have been great the midfield is dominating & the way they keep the ball inside the forward half of the ground is what is winning games for them. The Saints will need to run and carry the ball from defence & win the middle of the ground to win this game.

Suggested Bets: LIONS $1.45

WEST COAST  Vs GWS GIANTS

The Eagles are loving being back in WA while the Giants are looking to find a spot in the top 8. This is a battle in the midfield that would be great to see Gaff & Kelly up against Whitfield  & Kelly. Kennedy has been kicking goals for fun the last couple of games and defensively the eagles are tackling hard. this couldn’t be said about the giants they pressure well but it’s just not at the level it needs to be to win the flag this year & with Cameron not kicking the goals they expect the Eagles should win this game & continue their march forward to the finals

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST 1-39 $1.80

COLLINGWOOD Vs KANGAROOS

The last game of this weekend is between the Magpies & Kangaroos. 2 sides that have been very disappointing. Both sides are struggling to move the ball with any speed and accurately. The Roos will need to have a look at their list after this year. with no major forward to replace Ben Brown I will have to go with Collingwood in this game but I’m not expecting a high scoring game here

AFL betting tips Round 12 Preview:

SWANS vs GWS 

Round 12 starts with a Sydney derby in WA. Normally this would be an exciting game for both sides but both teams are in very different places The Swans are second last on the ladder struggling to score While the Giants are 6-4 sitting 8th on the ladder and looking to get on a roll to move up the ladder & in prove before finals. looking at a low scoring game here & a GWS win to start off the week.  The only problem that could stop this is the open spaces of Optus Stadium.

Suggested Bets: GWS under 126.5 $ 2.60

GEELONG  vs PORT

Friday night football starts with the game of the round Geelong vs Port. Both teams are looking to guarantee a spot in the top 4. Both sides are coming off great wins with Geelong playing fantastic football on Monday night. Port has had a longer break & the way they tackled with their fast-flowing football I think the extra break will see them just get over the line against the Cats. Travis Boak & Menegola are both playing great football at the moment & Rohan is starting to find his form in the Geelong Forwards line

Suggested Bets: PORT  1-39 $1.95

NORTH vs BRISBANE

The Lions take on the Kangaroos in the early game on Saturday. If the Lion could kick straight they could be in a better situation then they are at the moment. it is really frustrating for Chris Fagan’s side to be so dominant at getting the ball into the 50 & not finish it off. Our Brownlow pick Lockie Neale is still getting the job done week after week but he needs to deliver the ball into the 50 to help his forwards get better shots. The Kangaroos have had a horrified 2020 like the rest of us & I don’t see Saturday being much better, so we have to stick with the Lions

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE -15.5  $1.45

MELBOURNE vs COLLINGWOOD 

This game has one of the lowest lines I have seen in a long time. Sports bet has the Total points line at 100.5 points. You can understand why. both sides have been struggling to score. Collingwood is the 2nd best defence in the league they have given up fewer points than the top of the table Power but have only scored 4 points than the Demons & they have an extra game in hand. I have to think that Collingwood will stop the Demons from scoring again but games at the Gabba are normally high scoring well over 100 points anyway so we will take the overs as well.

Suggested Bets: Collingwood Over 100.5 $2.90

FREO vs CARLTON

FREO take on the Blues in the last game on Saturday & I have to say I have been impressed with the way the Dockers have gone about it they keep trying and that’s all you can ask from a side developing. They have some great young players coming through & take on another young side in Carlton. The Blues aren’t far away but will be looking forward to getting out of Perth. they have given up 2 leads in WA to both the Eagles & Hawks. Look for them to start fast again & hopefully for their sake hold on to finally get the win

Suggested Bets: CARLTON UP Quarter Time $1.90

BULLDOGS  vs CROWS

The BattLE Between 2 sides that are struggling to win a game or meet expectations. The Bulldogs will need to win this game to be any hope of making it back into the top 8 While the Crows just need to win a game full stop. After losing to Collingwood midweek where they looked to have their chance something bad would have to happen for the Crows to win this one.

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS -9.5 $1.40

SAINTS vs BOMBERS

The Saints will be looking to bounce back this week against the Bombers who took on the suns on Wednesday Night. The Saints are a very good side offensively with the hard-running Brad Hill in their side but last game it showed how much of a hole another recruit in Zak Jones left in the St Kilda side. The bombers are working on developing a forward line with Tippa & Stewart. The midfield is strong but it will take one of these 2 to start kicking bags of goals each game for them to win

Suggested Bets: SAINTS $1.50

WEST COAST  vs HAWTHORN

The Eagles are loving being back in WA while the Hawks are thinking of starting to blood some young players. The Hawks season is on the edge at the moment with the side not running tackling or moving the ball forward like the normal hawks. While the Eagles are getting the Ball forward to the big boys in Kennedy & the Big O. The Eagle will put a big score on the Hawks in this one look at taking the Overs if it’s around 120.5 or maybe just be happy with the Eagles -15.5

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST -15.5 $1.50

RICHMOND vs GOLD COAST

The last game of this weekend is between the Suns & the Tigers. Stewy Dew has done a fantastic job with the Suns they have a lot of talent that is starting to get games in the legs King & Co will have to be at their best as the Tigers are starting to move through the gears Dusty is playing good football & Jack is kicking goals again up forward. But it’s the midfield where the tigers are starting to get on top of people with the tackling pressure we know and love from the Tigers. With the suns playing on Wednesday they have a short week so look for them to be tired at the end of this game

Suggested Bets: TIGERS $1.45

AFL Round 11 Preview & Tips:

CATS  Vs SAINTS

Both sides are coming off a mid-week game so the sides may be a lot different than what they were mid-week. I would think the Cats may rest a couple more players than the saints but it really is something that you have to wait and see who is missing from both sides. Both sides are finals bound and that is the end goal but if you are picking aside on the way they are playing at the moment you have to go with the saints In this 50/50 game

Suggested Bets: SAINTS 1-39           

FREO  Vs HAWTHORN

Both sides had the mid-week off & both sides are coming off massive wins for their club. Freo got over the top of the Pies while the hawks came back from being 5 goals down at one stage to beat the Blues. Both sides will have the open spaces of Optus Stadium but with Nat Fyfe still being a little underdone, I think the Hawks will be able to get on top of Freo. Thanks to the domination from Mitchell Worpel & co.

Suggested Bets: HAWTHORN        

MAGPIES  Vs CROWS

Both sides are coming off midweek games but if you look at the sides there is a big difference in talent The Crows still haven’t get a win at the time of writing this while the Pies are starting to become an up & down side. Against the Crows, they should be able to kick a few goals and build some confidence in a side that needs to start stringing wins together to earn a shot at finals football.

Suggested Bets: MAGPIES 1-39 

SUNS  vs ESSENDON

The festival of football ends with the Bombers and Suns taking on each other in a 50/50 game. The Bombers are a side that seems to win against the sides they should but struggle to beat any side that in the 8. The Suns are starting to feel the pinch from not having rock hard tested bodies & you have to give a massive well done to Stuey Dew and the way he is coaching this side, but I feel the bombers will have just a little bit too much firepower and just get over the top of the Suns

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 10 Preview & Tips:

BRISBANE vs RICHMOND

Tuesday night football between Richmond & Brisbane looks to be a great game. The way the Tigers played last week shows they are on the way back to their best football Dusty, Lynch & co moved the ball with ease and their kicking skills looked to be getting better. Brisbane is still going along strongly but the kicking at goal will come and bite them on the bum in the near future if they don’t start kicking straight. Lockie Neale is still in Brownlow form but Dusty is starting to play great footy with a body that seems to be handling the increased amount of games.

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE 1-39 $ 1.91 

GEELONG Vs KANGAROOS 

Geelong plays the Kangaroos on Wednesday Night & the roos are just disappointing this year while Geelong are taking this time to rest a couple of players. The Cats have a great side defensively & should be able to contain the Roos Forwards this week even tho they got the win last week.

Suggested Bets: Cats 1-39

CROWS  Vs MELBOURNE

The Crows still haven’t won a game but tonight may be the night as the Crows could cause an upset here against the inconsistent Demons. The Demons should get control from Max Gawn in the ruck & first hand to the ball is very important in football today. The Demons don’t have much of a forward line so watch out if Tex Walker and the crows start to get on top

Suggested Bets: DEMONS 1-39 

COLLINGWOOD  Vs SWANS  

This game looks to be the perfect way for the Pies to get back on the winner’s list after losing to the Dockers last week. The short turnaround & the travel to the Gabba will be the main problems that stop the pies from getting the 4 points but I believe the Pies will be able to stop Papley & the rest of the Swans line up that keep on struggling to kick a winning score.

Suggested Bets: COLLINGWOOD/ UND 120.5  $2.62

GOLD COAST Vs ST KILDA

The Saints keep marching on even the biggest fan would be happily surprised that the saints are sitting 3rd on the ladder. They Could be leading the comp as 2 of the saints loses they were up by 4 goals at one stage of the game. Gold coast is another side that keeps on trying but the lack of AFL experience is starting to show on the young player’s bodies, The Saints will be able to keep their running going and should win this game by over 2 goals

Suggested Bets: SAINTS -12.5 $1.85

ESSENDON vs GWS

Slowly the GWS are starting to build towards the back end of the season. After being the Tigers they defeated the Suns last week. Toby Green being out will take a little bit of anger out of the side but they are moving the ball a lot better & starting to get some star midfielders back who if the can stay healthy can help them rocket up the ladder before finals. Essendon is just missing a couple of pieces a better ruckman & key forward would make this game a lot closer.

Suggested Bets: GWS -15.5 $1.90

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 9 Preview & Tips:

DEMONS Vs PORT POWER 

Melbourne takes on the Power on Thursday night in what will be an interesting game the Power is still on top of the ladder and play a very attractive style of football. they still suffer when the pressure come on but I don’t see the Demons putting enough pressure to stop ports style of football. Melbourne will struggle with the tall forwards like Charlie Dixon & Marshall. so look for an easy win & Port to still be on top of the ladder at the end of the round

Suggested Bets: PORT 1-39 $ 1.91

CARLTON  Vs HAWTHORN

Friday night football starts with an early game at 5.40 Melbourne time between Carlton & Hawthorn. With the way the Hawks are playing at the moment the AFL will be glad it’s not on prime time on a Fridays as the hawks are playing terrible. they are a shadow of the team from last year, moving the ball sideways & not forward. when they are in trouble Scilly & Gunston move down back and that basically kills the hawks of a forward threat. The hawthorn kids need to step up down forward if they are a chance to beat the Blues. Carlton has has a great Month only just going down to some good teams &  now winning games they should win. This is one of these games they should win.

Suggested Bets: CARLTON 1-39 $1.95

ESSENDON VS BRISBANE

The Bombers take on the Lions at the home of the gold coast suns. The Bombers are a good side playing good football against the mid-table & lower table sides but this is their chance to take on a genuine Top 4 side. The Lions are flying their midfield is fantastic & they are kicking a lot of goals in this shorter form of the game. Our Brownlow pick Lachie Neale is still getting the job done week after week so we have to stick with the Lions

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE 1-39 $1.85

NORTH   Vs ADELAIDE 

This game is going to be a scrappy affair with 2 out of form sides playing each other both sides haven’t won a game in the last 5 so we are looking at a side to step up to the plate and hopefully want to win. I don’t mind how the Crows have been playing the last few weeks they have been trying hard & just missing some of the talents of the sides they have been playing. the Roos on the other hand looks to have their whole game style confused Ben Brown needs to step up just like tex walker needs to for the Crows. I’ll go for an upset here

Suggested Bets: CROWS +10.5/ UND 120.5  $3.20

SWANS Vs ST KILDA

Wow-what can you say about the Saints they beat both SA sides in 5 days in SA. What an amazing effort from a side this Tipster always had faith in. This week after a nice break they Take on the Swans who gave the hapless hawks a beating last week. Thank Tom Papley. He was fantastic and kicked a majority of their score. Do I see that happening this week? No. Do I see the swans stepping up and someone else helping him out? No. That’s the problem with the swans it’s a one-man show still and you can win games that way.

Suggested Bets: SAINTS 1-39 $1.85

WEST COAST Vs GEELONG

For a side that was in trouble a month ago, it’s amazing what a return to WA & a couple of wins can do to aside. The Eagle was out of this world against the Pies last week Kennedy hit for with 7 goals & a lot of the forwards chipped in with 1 or 2. The Thing that pleased me the most was how good the midfield looked especially Tim Kelly, who will take on his old team here in the Cats. they would love to have him in the side as the midfield is starting to get tired and sore as they are an older side. the cats may rest a couple of players this game so watch out or take the early odds

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST OVER 15.5 $ 1.70

GOLD COAST  Vs GWS

The Battle of the 2 newest teams in the AFL the GWS has owned this game in recent years but the Suns are a better side than what the Giants have faced in a long time. The Suns are playing great football and the young players are giving them a massive spark but the harden bodies of the GWS guys and the toughness is hard to ignore. GWS has still got a couple of gears to go through as Cameron hasn’t hit the scoreboard & hopefully the tall forward line can get the better of the Suns

Suggested Bets: GWS  +9.5 $1.90

DOCKERS Vs COLLINGWOOD

The last game of this weekend is is Freo vs Collingwood & to think last week that Collingwood got smashed by the West Coast while the dockers lost to the Cats in terrible wet conditions earlier this week. How much will that game take out of the Dockers? The pies should be able to bounce back from their game last week they will be used to the WA ground now & be able to get back to The need to get Mason cox into some type of form as they need a tall target if they are going to press for finals

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 8 Preview & Tips:

SUNS Vs BULLDOGS 

The first game of round 8 is a genuine 50/50 game between the Suns & Bulldogs. There is a lot of things that we dont know how this game is going to be played out you have the fast moving Bulldogs and then you have the exciting Suns with King up forward & a lot of great talent that keeps on surprising. The Bulldogs were great last week against the Bombers but with a couple of key outs like Lachie Hunter, I have the suns just in front in a very close game. I really like the way they take on the oppersition & the way King presents up forward

Suggested Bets: SUNS 1-39 $ 2.50 

GIANTS  Vs TIGERS

Friday night football is the Giants vs the tigers and its got me shaking my head a little bit. 3 Weeks ago i swear the papers read that the tigers are terrible they cant kick goals win games & are terrible to watch. Today if you look at the Ladder the boys from punt rd are sitting 4th on the ladder. Not bad for a team that cant score or play. while the GWS are sitting in 12th. they have just played 2 of the best teams in the league in Brisbane & Port and ended up getting over run. They make the most of their forward entries & I think they will get a lot this week while the tigers like a tough slower game this year that is low scoring.

Suggested Bets: GIANTS $1.65

NORTH VS CARLTON 

The Kangaroos play Carlton at the Gabba to start saturday football & things are tough for the boys from Arden street. they are struggling to move the ball forward Ben Brown is playing way up the ground & not getting shots on goal he needs to get back in the 50 and against the Blues, this can happen. The blues are a side that chase hard & are showing a lot of effort but we are just waiting for them to faulter. Goldstein goes up against the under rated Blues Ruckman Pittonet if he can get on top of him and the Roos get the ball out of the centre they can win this game.

Suggested Bets: NORTH +12.5 $1.80

SWANS  Vs HAWTHORN  

This game is going to be the last time I tip the hawks in if they continue to play like they are at the moment. For a side that is coach by a hall of fame coach  they are moving the ball side ways & handballing way to much. This is getting them in trouble & ever since they said where is the Holding the Ball calls, they have had quite a few. For a team that should be fighting for a top 8 spot. Mitchell is getting a lot of touches but they are really missing Brust up forward tackling pressure that helped them win against Richmond earlier in the year & a backline that is bombing the ball out of the defensive 50. Sydney are trying hard for a side battling injuries they need to find a way to score goals & this will be the difference in what could be a very messy game.

Suggested Bets: HAWTHORN -5.5/ UND 120.5  $2.80

PORT ADELAIDE Vs ST KILDA

In a game that should be very entertaining the power take on the saints, who come off a short week after beating the Crows on monday. The saints did enough to get the job done with a couple of little lapes they still had enough to run out the game and win quite easily. They cant do that against the best side in the league at the moment in Port Boak Dixon & Grey are now getting surpport from players like powell pepper Marshall & others. It makes the the complete team which means all there problems are going to be mental or if they can battle. They are a great side when in front but will they be able to fight back when they need to that is the question. This week I feel they can thanks to the long break but this game will be a good test for Port.

Suggested Bets: PORT 1-39 $1.85

ESSENDON Vs ADELAIDE

Sunday kicks off with the The Bombers taking on the Crows & we start to wonder when the Crows will get their first win as they are a side that keeps on trying & finding that they just arnt up to AFL standard at the Moment. we already have people tweeting out rebuild plans for the Crows & we are only half way through the season. Essendon should be to good in this one espeically with the crows playing Monday night so ill have to go with the bombers.

Suggested Bets: ESSENDON $1.50

WEST COAST  Vs COLLINGWOOD

Match of the round for me here between the Eagles & Pies. The eagles back in WA are a much better side. Optus stadium suits their game style with all the open space but with 30,000 people in the crowd & the magpie army wanting able to watch their team play, you know the sound will be like their is 50-60,000 in the watch the game. Collingwood has impressed me with the way they defend the way they run & the admount of shots & inside 50 they get. If they had a good key forward they would be flag favorites for me. in what I expect to be a close game i like to take the points on offer here with Collingwood at the line or even Collingwood 1-39  as this won’t be a blowout

Suggested Bets: COLLINGWOOD +6.5 $1.90

MELBOURNE Vs BRISBANE

Melbourne returned to form by smashing the hapless hawks on the weekend. They were fantatsic in the way they moved the ball but did really get much pressure from the Hawks. Brisbane will provide a lot of pressure to the Demons this weekend. They will be looking to stop Max gawn in the ruck, stopping him from handing the midfielders first possession. Our Brownlow pick Neale will be looking to read Gawns taps & put in another great game. If they win the midfield battle they win the game Brisbane. I feel they will do this as they use the ball a lot better than the Demons mid fielders.

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE 1-39 $1.90

DOCKERS VS CATS

The last game of the round will be played on Monday night again as we continue to have fooball played almost every day for the next 3 weeks. The Dockers take on the Cats who are starting to get a lot of injuries and niggles. This is one of the down sides from having a very skilled but old football team. The Dockers will be looking to improve after losing the Derby to west coast. With the home crowd behind them, they should lift but the geelong side is so well drilled in their game style. Danger & Tomahawk will enjoy the extra space. I really see Tomahawks kicking 2-3 goals on monday & the dockers won’t have a way to stop him.

Suggested Bets: CATS $1.50

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 7 Preview & Tips:

CATS vs MAGPIES 

The first game of round 7 is a genuine 50/50 game between the Cats & Collingwood & there is a lot of things that we don’t know how this game is going to be played out being in WA. Is the bigger ground going to help out the Cats or the defensively-minded Magpies? The Pies are brilliant in defence this year even without their best defender in Howe but can they handle a forward line with future Hall of Famers like Hawkins Ablett & Dangerfield. The Cats have no problems getting the ball inside the forward 50 & average 3 more goals a game than the Pies. With the extra space of Optus stadium, I think it may open up the for the cats a little more & they are the better value then the Pies in this one I think.

Suggested Bets: CATS $ 2.10 

BOMBERS  vs BULLDOGS

In another 50/50 game according to the bookies the Bombers take on the bulldogs & I have to say I was very disappointed with the way the Dogs played last week against the Blues. In a game where they should have been a lot closer while having 10 more inside the 50s they could only manage 16 shots on goal while the Blues had 23 from just 41 forward entries. They played around with the ball away too much & you can’t afford to do that with the Bombers who are very skilled in the midfield thanks you Merrett Mcgrath Sadd and co they will make sure the ball will move fast in transition & with multiple goal scores, it can be a very hard team to match up on in attack.

Suggested Bets: BOMBERS $1.90

GWS vs BRISBANE 

Super Saturday starts off with a cracker in GWS & Brisbane. The Lions have made the little move to Giants stadium for this one after playing at the SCG last week & I don’t think this ground will suit their style of play either. The Lions need space to move around in open up for the Forwards to get leads and take marks from the midfielders kicks. They get the ball into the 50 very easy but it also comes out the 50 quickly as well. The lions set up the wall really well but I feel GWS run and carry will be able to overcome that. GWS on the other is efficient the put up good score with minimal entries & Cameron hasn’t really got started this year if he starts to kick the bag full of goals we know he can they could be sitting in the TOP 4 in no time

Suggested Bets: GWS 1-39 $2.10

SWANS  vs GOLD COAST  

This game is going to be very interesting with both sides missing a lot of great players thanks to injuries The Swans have just lost Issac Heeney for the year which leaves an even bigger hole in their forward line without Buddy & I don’t know how Papley can fill that hole. Gold Coast look a lot brighter Max King is looking great up forward for a young player & well most of this Gold Coast side is still very young and inexperienced but with veterans like Ellis around them this next section of the season will be the toughest for them I feel they will get a boost with a win here over a swans side that might just be watching the season pass by them.

Suggested Bets: GOLD COAST/ UND 127.5 $3.40

NORTH MELBOURNE Vs RICHMOND

Slowly the tigers are starting to wake up from what was an extra-long ISO for them. It hasn’t been pretty but the Tigers have put 2 wins together against some middle of the road teams. They take on another middle of the table team in the Kangaroos here and have a massive chance of making it 3 in a row. The Roos have lost 4 in a row & are finding it really hard to cover players that are missing like Ben brown who isn’t getting the ball as much as he should & players that are not 100 % fit like Ben Cunnington. They are a much better side when ben is fit & in the team but this game has all the makings of being very ugly football from 2 very out of form sides.

Suggested Bets: RICHMOND $1.60

CARLTON Vs PORT ADELAIDE

Sunday kicks off with the improving blues & the Power playing at Gabba. The Blues are surprising a lot of teams with the gritty play that is both hard-working and very efficient. while the Power is running the legs off teams with the fast-flowing football we all like to see & when you have key forwards like Charlie Dixon why wouldn’t you want to get the ball in their quick & offer a chance up to him to kick you a winning score. Boak is leading from the front & in my eyes is very close to being in front of the Brownlow votes as we look at them now. If the Blues can keep up with the Power they have a chance to run over the top of them if not it should be another win Port in a high scoring game.

Suggested Bets: PORT ADELAIDE $ 1.50

HAWTHORN Vs MELBOURNE

In the tradition No MERGER game between the Hawks & Demons. there is a lot of history between these two sides but the way these two sides are playing at the moment it is like we are watching 2 very poor sides going at it. Hawthorn last week decided that the best way to play football is to handball backwards way too much & allow Collingwood to gang tackle your players they looked nothing like a side we saw a month ago beat Richmond. while the Demons lost to Richmond in one of the worst all-around games of the year. Both sides will need to be a lot cleaner with the ball & take each other on if they are going to win this one Max Gawn will have to be very good taking on 2 top-class ruckmen in Big Boy & Ceglar. If the hawks can break even in the clearances thanks to Mitchell & Worpel The hawks should win this game with Mitchell Lewis or Gunstan standing up for the Hawks

Suggested Bets: HAWKS 1-39 $2.00 

FREO Vs WEST COAST

The Western Derby One of the best matches to watch for a neutral supporter all year thanks to the hatred between the 2 teams & the fast running style of WA football looks to be a lot better game than what we expected 3 weeks ago. 3 weeks ago both sides were struggling playing games in QLD every week away from their family now they are back in WA & watch for this game to be of a very good standard as both teams are coming off wins with the eagles looking especially good the last couple of weeks. On paper, they still have a top 4 side & now with games being played in the west more often watch for the Eagles & Dockers to move up the ladder especially with the Eagles winning this game in a close one

Suggested Bets: EAGLES 1-39 $1.85

CROWS VS SAINTS

The last game of the round will be played on Monday night at the Adelaide oval between the Crows & Saints. The Crows are sitting last on the ladder winless & struggling to stay with teams for the whole 4 quarters while the Saints are up & down like the Saints of old. They look amazing one week but them like last week they give up a 6 goal lead to the dockers to lose a game they really should have won going on the first quarter. I’m really not sure what to make of this game, will the Crows play better football now they are back in SA but is their good football any good at all? Will it be good enough for them to beat the saints & will Tex Walker kick a bag? Ummm maybe not so I will stick with the Saints but this isn’t really a game I would be throwing the kitchen sink at.

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 6 Preview & Tips:

CATS vs LIONS 

COVID is back in victoria & for the next couple of months, it is going to be strange to see games like this Geelong v Brisbane in NSW. needless to say, this should be a cracking game with both sides sitting in the top 4. The cats move to a small ground like they have had for the past month while Brisbane is playing fantastic football with Charlie Cameron dominating up forward & our Brownlow Pick Lockie Neale in Brownlow winning form. The Cats have the most talent but the Lions are playing the best team football so expect a close game with Brisbane just getting the chocolates

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE $1.70

HAWTHORN vs COLLINGWOOD

Friday night footy gives us another great game between the Hawks & Magpies. The Hawks have a very short turn around from playing Sunday night while the Pies have been in NSW since Sunday morning so they will be well adjusted to NSW life. Collingwood has been very indifferent this year, their defence is fantastic but at the time they struggle to kick goals and they don’t have a tall key forward that can get the most of trouble, The giants home ground may suit them and their style of football while the Hawks played their last Sunday so they should be used to the ground but have always struggled at Giant Stadium. In another tight game, I have to go with the hawks at the Line

Suggested Bets: HAWTHORN + 6.5 $1.90 

FREO vs ST KILDA 

The start of a very average day of football starts with the Dockers & Saints. The dockers will be happy to move back to WA after this game while the Saints are flying playing a lot better football than the Dockers & should account for the Wa side. Freo is a shadow of themself without Nat Fyfe but they did manage to get the win against the Crows last week in an ugly low scoring game. The saints should win this game by over 30 points if they are the side I think they are but the easier bet is for them to be up at HT & FT

Suggested Bets: ST KILDA HT/FT DOUBLE $1.55

WEST COAST  vs CROWS 

The Eagles have finally started to play some nice football last week & with a win over the hapless Crows could head back to WA in a very good position before they make teams play them in the fortress that is Optus stadium. The Crows on the other hand played the Dockers & couldn’t manage a goal until the final seconds of the first half. This sums up how well the Crows are playing the look a shadow of the team they were last year & need to find a spark from somewhere or the only thing they have to look forward to is Trading away a lot of players & the number one Draft Pick.

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST/ UND 126.5 $2.15

MELBOURNE Vs GOLD COAST

It’s amazing how a game let along a season can change in a matter of seconds Matt Rowell, a rookie goes down and the world loses faith in them. Yes, he played amazing, Yes he was going to poll a lot of votes in the Brownlow. But the whole side has improved so much and they can get back on the winners list against the Demons. for them to do that they need to stop big Max gawn. Oliver is going to get disposals but he doesn’t use them as well as he should so it comes down to the battle in the ruck that will decide this game & I think the Suns at the line is a great bet for this game.

Suggested Bets: GOLD COAST +8.5  $ 1.91

ESSENDON vs NORTH MELBOURNE

Saturday night finishes with what I believe will be a good old fashioned tough game of football. The Bombers are coming off a surprising win against the Pies while the Roos got it all wrong on the selection table & paid for it against the Bulldogs. I Think the Roos can bounce back here especially with Stringer missing from the Bombers which is a massive out and really opens this game up. Watch for Ben Brown to kick a bag in this game & the Roos go close to winning it.

Suggested Bets: Either team under 19.5 points $1.85

GWS vs PORT ADELAIDE

In what will be a very good game this will sort out who is a real flag contender & who will most likely finish in the bottom half of the top 8. It really is an old fashion 8point game & the boys from GWS will be up and about after beating Hawthorn in a game that decided a lot of the key stats sides look at these days. Port on the other hand took on a genuine top 4 team and looked the second rate. They will need to work a lot harder if they want to keep up with the GWS midfielders. Will port want to run the other way with the same intensity as they do when things are going their way. We will find out.

Suggested Bets: GWS  $1.80

SYDNEY vs RICHMOND

The Tigers got a win on the board and that may have kick-started their season now They started to move the ball well into the forward 50 and find Lynch, Jack & rest of the Tiger forwards. Sydney is still struggling up forwards but there is also a couple of cracks now showing in the midfield. They have poor disposal at times and are handball happy to get out of trouble which is great sometimes but will find you trouble against a side like Richmond who is a tackle hungry machine at times. The price for the tigers is way over the odds thanks to a lot of injuries but I still think they will get the job done.

Suggested Bets: TIGERS $1.75

CARLTON vs BULLDOGS

The last game of the round will be a hard-fought match between the Bulldogs & Blues The blues keep fighting all game no matter who they are playing which is great to see from a side that would just fold up and get smashed on a weekly bases. The Bulldogs are starting to play the football a lot of experts thought they could at the start of the year. The back to back wins have really boosted the side and the confidence they now have should continue with a win against the Blues

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 5 Preview & Tips:

CARLTON vs SAINTS 

Thursday night footy we have the surprising Blues up against the Saints, the side we had faith in but rest of the world didn’t. I’m happy that the Saints are proving us right with Brad Hill, Jones & the rest of the new saints are playing great football under Brett Ratten. Ratten the old Carlton coach get to show the blues they made a mistake in firing him years ago. The Blues are coming together nicely they but in a great performance against the Bombers, but I think the running game of the saints will be too much for the Blues

Suggested Bets: SAINTS $1.75

ESSENDON vs COLLINGWOOD

The Traditional ANZAC day clash between the Bombers and Magpies will be another close affair. The Pies come close to beating GWS last week. The bombers also lost a close one to the Blues which would have hurt the Bombers faithful. Collingwood have all the makings of a grand final team, they have a fantastic open forward line with a lot of different scoring options that will be too much for the Bombers. the Bombers are missing a big key forward & an extra key midfielder, this will make it hard for them to keep up with the Pies.

Suggested Bets: COLLINGWOOD $1.50

SYDNEY vs WEST COAST 

Swans vs West coast are still in the Queensland hub & the eagle will be hoping to get back in the winner’s list before they leave Qld. The eagle has the Crows next week but they have a chance to get their season back on track by defeating the Swans as well. I really thought the Swans at home last week would have won or at least get a lot closer to the Bulldogs then they did. Their disposal and run needs work and for them to move forward they need to put 4 quarters together. I’m going the Eagle in this one

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST  $1.55

GEELONG vs GOLD COAST  

The Cats played in a very scrappy game last week against the Demons but ended up pulling away in the final moments of the game. This week they need to be on their game from the first minute against the surprising Gold coast suns. You have to give the Suns all the respect in the world. Stewy Dew has done an amazing job with this young side & Matt Rowell is in the top 5 in the Brownlow while only playing 5 games. There is a lot to like about the suns but the Cats don’t lose 2 games in a row down in Geelong.

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39    $1.90

BULLDOGS vs KANGAROOS

This is very much an 8 point game in my eyes. 2 teams that want to play finals and that will most likely be fighting over the last spot in the 8 play early this year. the Bulldogs were great against the Swans, while the Kangas played 10 great mins against the hawks and almost won the game. The dogs are playing the better football but todd Goldstein is going to dominate the ruck in this game and could swing the game Norths favour especially if you have Ben Cunnington is back for the Roos.

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS $ 1.71

BRISBANE vs PORT POWER

This is going to be a cracker, Lions vs Power both teams are high scoring. both teams are flying. Playing great offensive football, but who is better in defence. Charlie Cameron is kicking goals. Neale is close to the best midfielder in the game & the power will have to stop if they are going to win this one. Brisbane have the massive problem of trying to stop the port forward line. Charlie Dixon is in great form and Marshall is improving every week. This will be a very close game and the

Suggested Bets: Either team under 15 points $1.81

FREO vs ADELAIDE

In another game that is with 2 sides that don’t have many wins between them. The crows were better last week but still looked a long way off playing there best football. while Freo is always competitive for 3/4 of the game and just lose it in the last term. I think they are playing the better football but without Nat Fyfe, it is very difficult to tip them. but I will roll the dice with them this week.

Suggested Bets: FREO  $1.60

MELBOURNE vs RICHMOND

Funny game this one. You would have thought at the start of the year you just pick the tigers and watch an easy win for the boys from punt rd. You cant say that these days, the Tigers have been terrible they aren’t tackling or hitting targets and struggle to kick big scores. Melbourne is in the same boat but we expected that from them they are struggling to kick a winning score but they are getting the ball first with max gawn playing so well in the Ruck. The Tigers are too good of a side to not win a game soon and I think this is the one game they can win and get back on the track.

Suggested Bets: TOM LYNCH 2 GOALS & TIGERS WIN $2.00

HAWTHORN vs GWS

The last game of the round will be a hard-fought match between the Hawks and GWS. GWS started getting back into it last week beating the Pies in a great game & with the long break between games they should be refreshed taking on the Hawks. Hawthorn almost lost their game against the Roos in the last couple of minutes. they gave up 5 goals in the last quarter and just lost focus. Clarkson would have given them a spray during the week. besides that, the cluster was working a treat and they keep ben brown to only one touch for 3/4 of the game. Gws with the longer break should just win this in a close affair

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 4 Preview & Tips:

SYDNEY vs BULLDOGS 

Thursday night footy Is up in Sydney this week with the swans & bulldogs playing at the SCG. Both sides won last week but they don’t really set the world on fire. The Bulldogs had the best of the Giants to the surprise of a lot of people. But they could really start the year 0-3 if they were thinking of making finals in this shortened season. Sydney always play the SCG well but without Buddy again this could be a very hard game to kick a winning score. They average around 70 points which are good but will that be enough to beat the dogs & will they get off to a good enough start.

Suggested Bets: Either team to win by 19.5 or Less $1.80

GWS vs COLLINGWOOD

When I first looked at the odds of this game I had to take a second look GWS a side that has played poorly in the last 2 weeks is taking on the undefeated Magpies. The Pies have started quick in both games and in this new AFL game of short quarters that is a massive thing to do. GWS have struggled they aren’t running the ball like they normally do & against this Pies side that could be their don fall Cameron & most of the forward line has been very disappointing but the clean ball into the forward line hasn’t been there. Collingwood’s game style is should play right into this & I see the Pies winning this game

Suggested Bets: COLLINGWOOD $1.75

PORT vs WEST COAST 

Port vs West coast in Queensland, The battle of the side that likes to play in the sunshine state and the one that will be happy to leave. West Coast don’t look like a side that is enjoying a Brisbane holiday. Gaff is getting a lot of balls but there just isn’t the fight you would see from the Eagles if this was in WA. Port on the other hand on top of the ladder loving life & getting a great team effort from the side every week Boak is leading from the front with Dixon Grey & a host of young players they should finish this week still on top of the ladder

Suggested Bets: PORT 1-39 $1.91

RICHMOND vs ST KILDA  

The Saints face a very good side on Saturday in Richmond but they are playing anything like last years Champions. In the last 2 games, they have averaged just 36 points, the side with so much strike power isn’t kicking the ball straight in front of goal & relying on the small forwards to kick a winning score. St Kilda went from world beaters to coming back down to earth. Collingwood showed them that you have to be on your game every week in the AFL & if the saints can play a running game they may have a chance to knock off the tigers but I have to go with the Tigers to bounce back from a couple of disappointing weeks

Suggested Bets: RICHMOND 1-39 $1.90

ESSENDON vs CARLTON 

WOW, I didn’t see that coming for the second week in the row I’m saying that Carlton beating Geelong in Geelong Wow. For 3 quarters they were fantastic but almost ran out of gas & still lost the game. Essendon have had an extra week off thanks to a COVID scare that could have derailed the whole season they did look good when the played a fortnight ago but the extra week off may make them start off slow & that means it could be an uphill battle for them this week

Suggested Bets: CARLTON TO WIN the 1st qtr $2.00

GOLD COAST Vs FREO

Gold Coast have a chance of being 3-1 after this weekend & stay in the Top 4. Any person that said they could see this coming is lying to you. They are the Cinderella story of the AFL season so far this year. They have also found the next star of the AFL in Matt Rowell. Matt has turned in to a cult hero for the suns & he has only played a hand full of games. Freo on the other hand have been competitive for 3/4 of a game and will be looking forward to playing back in WA soon. They are a side that puts in a lot but is lacking a lot of top-line talent besides Fyfe

Suggested Bets: GOLD COAST 1-39 $2.00

BRISBANE Vs ADELAIDE

In the most lopsided game of the weekend, Brisbane should smash the Crows. Adelaide is a shadow of the team most people thought they could be this year. they have a percentage of 50% & have only kicked 135 points this year. Brisbane, on the other hand, is ticking over nicely Charlie Cameron is kicking a lot of goals and Nealie is in Brownlow medal-winning form. I don’t really like to watch or Bet in games like this but if I had a bet in this game

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE -15.5 $1.30

MELBOURNE Vs GEELONG

A funny game this one. Geelong was meant to beat the Blues last week at home but couldn’t get the job done in a stunning game while Melbourne was the unlucky side to be playing Essendon when the COVID scare hit. Geelong will bounce back this week thanks to being the more match fit side. Melbourne lacked match fitness in the first game against the Blues and almost lost to them in the final minutes. Geelong will be hungry and I expect Tomahawk to have a big game up forward he has been a little quiet but the space at the MCG will suit him

Suggested Bets: TOM HAWKINS 2+ GOALS & GEELONG WIN $2.00

HAWTHORN VS NORTH

Both these two teams are playing above expectation  Hawthorn was fantastic against the Tigers last week & have had a major break as this game will be played Sunday Night. North went down to the Swans at home last week and I really expected them to win that game especially after kicking the first 2 goals of the game. Hawthorn skills with both hand and foot, the running capabilities of Smith, Scully & the rest of the midfield will help them keep control of the ball & should see the Hawks get over the line in a game that will help shape the Hawks push for a Top 4 spot

Suggested Bets: HAWTHORN 1-39 $2.00

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 3 Preview & Tips:

RICHMOND vs HAWTHORN 

Thursday night footy & we have a traditional hard game to kick off the round with Richmond v Hawthorn. The Tigers got a draw in a very scrappy game last week while the Hawks didn’t show up in the second half and lost to Geelong in Geelong. The big news about this game is the fact that Dusty may be out, This changes the game and will bring the odds down for Hawthorn. I’m expecting a tight game & Clarkson would have seen a lot of different ways the Hawks can improve. the Hawks tall backline may stop Lynch and Riewoldt but I still expect the Tigers to win

WESTERN BULLDOGS vs GWS

As I said last week I’m not a big fan of the bulldogs compared to a lot of other football experts & they didn’t help their cause last Sunday when they were outplayed by the Saints. GWS on the other hand looks a little rusty against the Roos, missing targets and not being able to run with the ball and play the style of football we expect from them. They still are a very good side & with the amount of talent they have should get back on the winner’s list this week with an easy win against the bulldogs

Suggested Bets: GWS $1.60 WIN

NORTH vs SYDNEY

One of the surprises from last week was how well the Roos played against GWS & I have to admit I didn’t see it coming they were impressive. So many different players put their hands up & they went back to playing as a old fashion Kangaroos team. The Swans just missed against the Bombers at the SCG and you could tell that they were missing some Agrade talent up forward. Buddy is still a week away I believe so they may struggle again

Suggested Bets: NORTH TO WIN $1.60

COLLINGWOOD vs ST KILDA  

The Saints face a very good side on Saturday in Collingwood. The Pies coming off their draw against the Tigers didn’t really do anything of notice up forward after the first quarter. They don’t have a Key forward like the other sides that they can bomb long to & hope he gets a big mark. This will be their problem for most of the year but they do have some of the best small to Mid Forwards in the league & can still get a big score if they have an open forward line. The Saints on the other hand looked fantastic but a quick back up from playing Sunday night on hard ground can take its toll. The saints will keep on improving during the year & this will be a good yardstick game for them to see where they are in the pack this year

Suggested Bets: Collingwood 1-39  $1.90

BRISBANE Vs WEST COAST 

WOW, I didn’t see that coming West coast lost to the Gold Coast last week. They didn’t look anything like the side that we know & respected so much going into that game. Maybe they don’t like being in the Queensland bubble away from their family and that can take a toll on players sometimes. Brisbane played well against a much improved Freo side. Lachie Neale ( our Brownlow Tip) & Charlie Cameron were fantastic. they will need to put in the same great performance to beat a West Coast side that will be hungry to fix the problems from last week game

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE 1-39 $1.85

GEELONG Vs CARLTON

If one side is going to benefit from this new style of Isolation football it’s Geelong they have an Older side that will enjoy the shorter quarters. Ablett, Dangerfield, Taylor are all hall of fame players in the twilight of their career. This may give them one more shot at winning the Flag. Not to mention the fact that they get to play all their games in Geelong where you can’t beat them this will set them up for a big year. This week they will go on their merry way and smash Carlton in the easiest game to pick this week.

Suggested Bets: GEELONG -15.5 $1.35

GOLD COAST Vs ADELAIDE

Again WOW the Gold coast was fantastic against the Eagle, Honestly, I still can’t believe it Stewy Dew has this side playing great football & the young boys are starting to develop into great young footballers. They already had great skills but the speed of the game with the shorter quarters is helping them develop at a quicker rate. The Crows were disappointing in the Showdown last week Port made them look second rate. After the first couple of week, I have come to the conclusion that it might be a long season for the Pride of South Australia.

Suggested Bets: Gold Coast to win $1.70

MELBOURNE Vs ESSENDON

A funny game this one. 2 sides that we expect to miss the finals & are very evenly matched. Melbourne came out of the blocks like Usain Bolt they looked like they might blow Carlton away. In the end, they only just won the game against Carlton by a point while Essendon had a real fight against the Swans & came out on top. Max Gawn was fantastic in the ruck for the Dees & could be the game-changer if he can be on top for all 4 qtrs this time they can win the game but I expect a tough close game & with that in mind I will have to go with the Bomber Just

Suggested Bets: BOMBERS TO WIN $1.70

FREMANTLE VS PORT POWER

Freo have a home game on the Gold Coast this Sunday & out of the 2 WA teams they have adjusted the best being stuck in the QLD bubble. They take on the Power who are top of the Ladder and flying after a impressive Showdown win last week against the Crows. Freo stayed with the Lions for a majority of the game which was great to see from a side that has been knowing to roll over in the last couple of years they have been in both their games this year but are lacking marks inside the 50 which has been the difference between winning and losing. Port well they get clearance they look fit strong and have winners all over the park-like Dixon and Boak. We have to stick with the Power but this may be closer than a lot of people think.

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 2 Preview & Tips:

RICHMOND vs COLLINGWOOD

The AFL is Back & I couldn’t be more excited. What a game to start with as well. Collingwood v Richmond could be one of the finals later this year both sides have teams capable of winning the flag. Collingwood will try to stop Dusty from getting clean disposals & play more team defence. The Tigers, on the other hand, will look to use their better kicking ability to open up the Pies. The Tigers should start favourite but in my eyes, they are a little short, The Pies will keep this game close & may even win but I’m getting some points so I will take them

Suggested Bets: COLLINGWOOD + 12.5 $1.70

GEELONG vs HAWTHORN

One of the games I look forward to each year is being played down in Geelong this year. The Cats have a fantastic record down at the Cattery winning over 90% of the game down there in recent memory. This is a massive advantage but what we learnt about Hawthorn in the first round as they have a fit list & are very well-coached. The inclusion of Wingard, Patton & Mitchell back from a broken leg will give Hawthorn a very good around the side that might just fly under the radar. Kind of like the Pies Richmond game These games are always close & the more impressive side from round one is getting points in the line so we would be silly not to take it.

Suggested Bets: HAWTHORN +12.5 $1.70  to win $1.80

BRISBANE vs FREO

The Lions are home for the first time this year & this could be the start of a winning period for the club. The surprise packet of 2019 will take on the surprise packet of round one in Freo. Not many people thought the dockers would win against the bombers but any side that has Nat Fyfe cant be ignored. The Lions will have to take a couple of steps forward to be a top 6 side this year but with a fast running open game, they could really enjoy the shorter games. I’m not sure if this will be a blowout or if I can trust Freo off one game so the HT/FT double looks good here

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE HT/FT $1.60

CARLTON Vs MELBOURNE 

This is a really hard game to figure out, Melbourne is not a good side & their coach is under a lot of pressure to get this side back on the right path. The Blues, on the other hand, played a very good second half against the Tigers in Round one but have a lot of injuries to key players that may force them to play players a little early or it could end up being a blessing. Melbourne is the favourites in this one, but I don’t like taking average teams against poor teams you just not sure what will happen in this one. if you need to have a bet in this one take the $1.55 @ sports bet & hope the game is over at half time because if the Demons do lose this one it will because they didn’t run out the game

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE $1.55

PORT POWER vs ADELAIDE

The Showdown on a Saturday night. Who is the best side in SA? well if you speak to anyone out of Port its finals or bust for Port this year. The Crows played the Swans in round one and look anything but convincing I have to think with all the pressure from the South Australian public one of this side will take the bull by the horns & will come through this game as a finals contender. In their 150th year, I think that will be Port in a very tough hard-hitting classic showdown

Suggested Bets: PORT 1-39 $1.85

GOLD COAST Vs WEST COAST

Could things be improving in the Gold Coast? they played some really nice football in the pre-season but still lost in round 1 & are still bottom of the ladder. The Eagles on the other hand looked great played some nice football & look very much a premiership contender. This game is an easy one to pick, stick with the eagles & watch a very good side give the wooden spoon favourites a little football lesson

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST -15.5 $1.35

GWS vs NORTH MELBOURNE

As I said in Round 1 I think this might be GWS year. they are a very good around side they have great skills, they have so many different targets up forward but they also have a player like Cameron who will go close to winning the Coleman again. The Roos on the other hand will fight like they always do but like most North sides of the last 5 years, they lack the class of a player like Dusty, Fyfe, Buddy etc. This is what is holding them back from being a finals side in my option. Ben Brown tries hard up forward and if you can give him good supply you will always have a chance at winning but I feel the GWS mids will stop the supply & will walk away with the win this week

Suggested Bets: GWS -15.5 $1.70

SYDNEY Vs ESSENDON

The Swans may have found something in round one with Buddy they had so many options up forward it was hard for the Crows to cover them all. Essendon on the other hand went down to Freo in round one which was a surprise to most people, including myself. Could it of been just a little bit of rust? will they be just as rusty after a couple of months off because of isolation? MAYBE.  For me I like a side that I know will chase, that is well-coached, has guts and determination. That is the Swans in a nutshell. So in a game between two very even sides ill tip the swans.

Suggested Bets: SWANS TO WIN $1.70

ST KILDA VS WESTERN BULLDOGS

When I was looking at this game I thought the bookies got this game all wrong. The Bulldogs are everyone’s tip to be the big improvers this year but for my self, I like the Saints. I love Brett Ratten as a coach he is very smart tactically he will build up the group & make them more accountable. Adding Brad Hill who will win their best and fairest, is a great pick up for the saints. The Bulldogs on the other hand have a lot of talented players but are missing a couple of major cogs. Both up forward and down back this will stop them being a top 6 side this year they may scrap into the 8 but I see both teams fighting for spots from 8th to 12th. The Bulldogs may win this game but I think it will be a lot closer than the bookies have it.

Suggested Bets: Either team by under 15.5 $ 2.37

The Betting Buddha’s AFL Round 1 Preview & Tips:

Richmond vs Carlton

The AFL season kicks off with the traditional opening game Richmond vs Carlton

The Tigers are looking to repeat their premiership glory of last year & should start the 2020 season with a strong win against Carlton. This Carlton side has recruited well in the offseason adding good young players and looks to have the building blocks to be a finals contender in a couple of years’ time. With the AFL shortening the length of the quarters look this game to be a lot closer than first expected.   

Suggested Bets: Richmond 1-39 $1.90

Bulldogs Vs Collingwood

This is a very difficult to tip in round one. A lot of AFL experts have the bulldogs as the big improver this year, personally i think they can make the 8 but will fall just short. Collingwood on the other hand have a top 4 place as their goal for 2020. The have a fantastic midfield, strong defense & a lot of scoring option down forward. With a couple of more goalkicker in their side i think the magpies will just come out in front by a goal or 2

Suggested Bets: Collingwood to win $1.80

Bombers vs Dockers

The Bombers have a fantastic record against the Dockers especially in Melbourne & they will be looking to start the 2020 season with a win after playing finals football last year. The Dockers on the other hand could be in for a rough year, Nat Fyfe is a star but who will help him out week to week? they traded away 2 of their best midfielders the last 2 years. I dont see the Bombers having much trouble with Freo this week. Bombers to win easy

Suggested Bets: Bombers to win over 15 points

Adelaide Vs Sydney

No Buddy No Sydney? maybe. but how could you not pick the Crows to win this game. With a new coach and close to a full list to pick from the crows will be very hard to beat in the first game of the year.  The Swans will still believe they are a chance after winning 2 of the last 3 games at the Adelaide oval

Suggested Bets: Crows to win & the under’s in total game point

GWS vs Geelong

Could this be GWS year finally? They say you have to lose a grand final to win one & with the disappointing showing in last year’s big one the GWS boys could come out & take their football to the next level. Geelong on the other hand have a lot of aging stars & the shorter quarters shorter games may really help the Cats players get through the year.  Still GWS looked amazing in the pre-season games & i have to think they will win their first game of the year against the Cats

Suggested Bets: GWS 1-39 $2.00

Gold Coast vs Port

Could things be improving in the Gold Coast? they played some really nice football in the pre-season & with Stewie Dew getting another preseason with this group they will improve this year. While Port in my eyes will be a side that should be close to playing finals this year or maybe win the race of being the first team to sack their coach. In a game that won’t be affected much by the ground lockout Port will win this game & start their season on the right path to September

Suggested Bets: Port 1-39 $1.90

North Melbourne vs St Kilda

St Kilda for me is the team to watch this year. I feel they have made some amazing moves in the off-season hiring Brett Rattan as their coach While the pick-up of Bradley Hill will turn out to be a steal when he win their BnF at the end of the year. The Saints also have a couple of players coming back from long injuries last year & if they can be fit they start to develop a very good 22 on paper. North on the other hand have a good solid side that never gives in & if they can deliver the ball to Ben Brown they have a possible match winner every week.

Suggested Bets: St Kilda to Win $1.80

Hawthorn Vs Brisbane

Hawthorn welcomes back Brownlow medalist Tom Mitchell from injury & The Big Key forward Jon Patton to a side that has recruited well the last couple of years. The Hawthorn list is really well assembled. Clarkson will have a couple of surprises up his sleeve in round one but one of them needs to be a way to stop Lachie Neale. If the Brisbane forward has a season like last year watch for him to be up the top of the Brownlow leader board at the end of the season. This will be a very tight game in Melbourne

Suggested Bets: Either team to win Under 15 points

West Coast Vs Demons 

The Demons take on the West Coast eagles in the last game of the round. Hopefully they have had a big pre-season as the eagle will be up and firing from the first bounce, Gaff, Yeo & Nick Nat will be looking to take control of the midfield & if they do watch for the eagle forwards to have a field day & kick a big bag of goals. Melbourne look like a side on paper that take a little time to develop a new game plan without Max Gawn
