Round 9 AFL Betting Tips:

Round 8 is over, and the ladder is finally taking shape with three stand out sides in the league. Melbourne, Freo & Brisbane are the best three teams in the league at the moment & all 3 have a different style of football, with Melbourne being the perfect mix of Fremantle’s defensive style and Brisbane’s attacking style. It’s hard to find a couple of teams that could sneak into the 8, but with the Bulldogs, Port & the Tigers getting Dusty back, the bottom four spots of the top 8 could change week in and week out. Right now, we have to back class teams each week. Class will take you far in this league, and Teams like Richmond & Geelong always seem to find a way to victory.

BEST BET: HAWTHORN vs RICHMOND 

In a traditional afternoon game, Saturday, we have the Hawks, who looked home against the fast-finishing Bombers taking on the Tigers. The Tigers are building a good game style with Dustin Martin back. With Lynch Bolton & Jak Riewoldt up forward, they should be too good for the Hawks struggling without a ruckman to run out four quarters. With a chance of rain and a cold Melbourne day, we are looking at the unders in this game as it will be hard to take a mark up forwards if it rains as much as predicted.

Suggested Bets: RICHMOND 1-39 UN/185.5  $2.75

BEST VALUE BET: PORT POWER vs KANGAROOS 

If you want value for a tip this week, backing the Kangaroos in Tassie is for you. The Roos are currently paying $6.00 on Ladbrokes to beat the Power in Tassie, and they have an excellent record down there, especially for a side that hasn’t been good in recent years. Being a Cold, wet game in Tasmania, we hope the Power can keep the game close, and the score will be low in this one. They are expecting a lot of rain on Saturday, which will bring the Roos into the game as they have some big bodies. Another bet you can look at is the line currently set at Kangaroos +34.5. You are banking on Port having problems in front of goal and the Kangaroos taking their chances. The Power should win and keep the run going, but you just don’t know in Tasmania with the Roos.

Round 8 AFL Betting Tips:

What did we learn in round 7? Well, Freo are the real deal and a top 4 contender with a tough win down in Geelong. Melbourne and Brisbane are still the bench mark with wins over Sydney and Hawthorn. Both the Hawks and Swans put in good games but are a level or 2 below the teams the best in the league. GWS bounced back with a win over the Crows & the Blues put in a good game against the Kangaroos with Harry Mckay kicking 4. The Biggest disappointment of the week was the Saints againt the Power,actually that was just a poor game and we expect them to bounce back soon.

BEST BET: NORTH MELBOURNE  vs FREMANTLE

Freo get a Friday night game, on the biggest stages in football and they take on the Roos in Perth. Coming off a win against Geelong in Geelong, you have to think that the Dockers will be able to beat the Roos in-front of their fans. The one thing i have noticed about Fremantle games is that they are normally very low scoring. With the Roos having a poor attack and the Dockers a defensive game plan the unders is on the cards here.

Suggested Bets: FREMANTLE -15.5 UN/165.5  $2.05

BEST VALUE BET: PORT POWER  vs WESTERN BULLDOGS 

Well last week i will admit i got it wrong with the Eagles. This week we are settling with the Bulldogs to beat the Power over in SA. I watched the game last week between the Power and Saints and there wasnt a lot i liked about that game. The Power had 30 points until 3/4 quarter time. and then had kicked 5.13 by the end of the game. bad kicking is bad football and the Power keep kicking scores like that so it’s a No for me. The Bulldogs have a much better forward line and should kick a big enough score to win here

Round 7 AFL Betting Tips:

ANZAC round finished up Monday with what was 2 very good games of football, we turn our attention to rd 7. We have a couple of sides that have 5 day turn arounds and normally thats a good sign especially if they are playing away this week. Melbourne are still on top of the ladder but with Freo in second & Brisbane in third you have to think that will change after this round & hopefully it will help us get better odds for this weeks games.

BEST BET: GEELONG vs FREMANTLE

This game is going to answer a lot of questions we have about both teams. its 2nd vs 6th and with this game being played at GHMBA we will find out.  Are Freo the real deal? Are Geelong building to a massive mid year run? Can any one beat the Cats in Geelong? Fremantle’s game is built on defence but with 2 future hall of fame forwards in Cameron & Hawkins, i think it will be a little to much for the boys from WA

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39  $2.35

BEST VALUE BET: WEST COAST  vs RICHMOND 

In a very tough game, we are going to go out on a limb and go with a side that lost by 84 points last round in the West Coast Eagles. The reasons behind this is simple. The Tigers are on a 5 day break heading to WA to play and played a hard fought game against the best side in the league last week. I find it hard for them to run out all 4 quarters. I know it will be hard to believe that a side can turn around that much but hopfully the Eagles will come out with some fire in their belly from playing at home & get the job done for us on Friday night.

Round 6 AFL Betting Tips:

It’s another extra long round of footy with the Anzac day games on Monday at the G & in Tasmania. There was a couple of surprises last week, the Hawks knocked off the Cats and the Dockers got the job done against the disappointing Bombers. This round has a couple of really interesting games with the Giants & Saints, Freo vs Carlton & Hawthorn vs Swans offering up some value.

BEST BET: GWS GIANTS vs ST KILDA

This round will be the first time the Giants get to pick Toby Greene back from a long suspension & it couldn’t come quick enough for them as they take on the Saints. How much of a difference will he make for them? Well last year the difference was 3 goals at least. With that being said it makes the line in this game very attractive. as the Giants have put in 2 really bad games and the Saints have been great.

Fun fact: GWS win rate without Greene is 47% With Greene in the team it is 61%. Something to think about.

Suggested Bets: STKILDA 1-39  $2.35

BEST VALUE BET: BRISBANE vs GOLD COAST 

In what is a very hard game to follow but some time you just have to go with what you know. What I know is that the Lions are a much better side than the Suns in all parts of the game. How are the Suns going to stop the Lions from kicking a big score? The Suns them self can’t get in a shoot out with the Lions, they just don’t have the fire power or the players that will get on top of Harris Andrews and the Lions defenders.

Round 5 AFL Betting Tips:

It’s the Easter long week end so that means we have games from Thursday night all the way to Monday when the Hawks take on the Cats at the MCG. The ladder is starting to take shape and by the looks of it, we have found a couple of early contenders for the Flag. Brisbane & Melbourne are on the way to the finals, they look the goods. But the surprising thing is how good the Dockers & Saints look at the moment. Both sides have been in great form in the last couple of weeks but can they keep it going for the rest of the season?

BEST BET: NORTH MELBOURNE  vs WESTERN BULLDOGS

The now traditional Good Friday game offers up our best bet of the weekend in the Bulldogs. Last week the bulldogs had every chance in the world to beat the Tigers But my number one rule in football showed up for the dogs. That rule is “Bad kicking is bad Football”  7 goals 19 behinds is terrible if they had of gone 50/50 it keeps them in the game and the result is totally different. The Roos on the other hand put in a good game againt the swans but i think that game took a lot out of them.

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS -15.5  $1.35

BEST VALUE BET: WEST COAST   Vs SYDNEY 

In what is a very one sided round i have found a game where i think there might be a bit of value. West coast are coming off their first win of the year and they take on the Swans at home in WA and with them being the outsider in this game i think they might be able to string 2 wins in a row together. The Swans were pushed to the limit by the Roos at home last week with the much bigger Optus stadium playing into their advantage, they could be too strong for the Swans up forward.

This Weeks AFL Betting Tips:

Not many would have thought that the Bombers or Power would be winless after three rounds. Could this be the week they finally get on the winners list? im not sure. While the Bombers have a better chance against the Crows, who are coming off a last-second win in the derby. The Blues fans are thinking about buying Finals tickets after beating top of the table Hawks in a close game last week. If they beat the Suns like everyone expects, they will be 4-0 for the first time in decades.

BEST BET: MELBOURNE vs PORT POWER 

Coming off another great performance, The Demons look unstoppable. They take on the most dissappointing side in the league at the moment. The Power went down with the last kick of the game in the Derby. They have a lot of players that haven’t reached the heights of last season, and without charlie Dixon, I cant see them getting over a Demon’s side that has the Brownlow favourite in my eyes in Petracca.

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE $1.45

BEST VALUE BET: GEELONG CATS  Vs BRISBANE 

Coming off a massive final quarter last week where the cats ran over the top of the pies, they head home down the freeway to Geelong to take on the Lions, who haven’t lost a game this year. We have always known that that Geelong in Geelong is the hardest game for a team to win each year. With a great side starting to fire, this will be one of the year’s best games. I have to expect that the Cats will be just too good for the Lions as they don’t have the space like they do normally at the Gabba to run and carry the ball.

Round 3 AFL Betting Tips:

Two weeks into the AFL season, many people are shaking their heads. The Power is at the bottom of the ladder. Buddy Franklin has just kicked his 1000th goal & while his old team, the Hawks, are on top of the ladder & Melbourne is still getting the job done week after week, just sitting at the top 4, waiting for the other teams to knock them off. The way they are playing, they could be waiting a while.

BEST BET: MELBOURNE vs ESSENDON

Coming off another great performance, The Demons look unstoppable. With Oliver and Pertracca both playing like Brownlow chances early in the year and the Bombers playing a very disappointing style of football,, this game should be another win for the flag favourites from the junction oval. The Bombers need to find something in defence at the moment. The Midfield has a lot of talent and needs to lift if they are a chance here against the Demons.

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE $1.35

BEST VALUE BET: WESTERN BULLDOGS  Vs SYDNEY

Coming off 2 losses, the Bulldogs are looking to get the win off the Swans & I can’t see how they can get it done when the Swans are playing this good. The Bulldogs may be without their main goal scorer Aaron Naughton most likely missing the game. The high-pressure Swans should be able to knock off the Dogs in Melbourne with the greatest of ease.

Round 2 AFL Betting Tips:

The first round of football has been and gone with a couple of surprises. Gold Coast winning in WA and how bad the Bombers played against the Cats. The Lions looked good and the Blues got the job done against the Tigers. This week a couple of close games but I have found some value for you all with one bet

BEST BET : BRISBANE vs ESSENDON

For This week’s best, we go with a team that was very good against a Port Side that got overrun in the last quarter and a half. The Lions are a side that will play in the finals this year and is looking to finally make the grand final. Essendon was terrible in the first game and has a lot of prove but by the end of this they could be 0-2

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE $1.50

BEST VALUE BET: GEELONG vs SYDNEY

With my value tip, I have taken the Cats over the Swans in Sydney. The Cats looked impressive last week & while the Swans got the W it was thanks to Luke Parker. I think the Cats can stop Buddy franklin and the Forwards, while the Swans will have a lot of trouble stopping the Tomohawk and the Geelong forwards as they looked in great condition last week.

Grand Finalists Port vs Brisbane 

This may surprise a few people but I think it might be an all interstate grand final this year. Both teams are very good at home and with the Powers younger players getting a little bit older they are near their peak. Strong in defence & with great tall forwards they will be hard to beat this year. Brisbane well, this is their last chance to make a grand final. Been so close for the last couple of years they need to get a return now on their investment

Bolters – Richmond

Last year the Tigers were tired from playing finals the last few years and when a lot of injuries come your way it impacts your team a lot. Watch for the Tigers to bounce back and have one more crack at a flag with this team of stars.

Wooden Spoon: Gold Coast  

What can you say about the Suns? Their coach is under fire, they have good players but the better ones want to leave for other teams & now their best player is gone for the season with an ACL. With King gone how will they kick a winning score? I don’t think they can. it will be a long season for the Gold Coast.


Round 1 Best Bet & Value Tips

BEST BET : WEST COAST vs GOLD COAST

For This week’s best bet I had to go with the Eagles in Perth Over the Gold Coast Suns. The Suns will struggle to kick a winning score and last year with King, they only averaged 60 points. With him missing they are in trouble. The Eagles are playing in WA they are a 3 goal better side there and with that I see them winning this game easy.

Suggested Bets: EAGLES $1.60

BEST Value Bet: GEELONG vs BOMBERS

With my value tip, I have taken the Bombers here over the Cats. I really like the Bombers, they are well-coached, Have a lot of great midfield players, have Solid defence and I believe they could be a little too quick for the Cats. With that being said, I don’t see the game being a blow out so the Bombers 1-39 is great value.

AFL Grand Final Preview:

MELBOURNE vs WESTERN BULLDOGS

After what feels like forever, we are finally made it to the biggest game of the year.

With everything that has happened in Melbourne this year (including an earthquake), We have the best 2 sides all year playing off in the big one over in Perth. After winning 17 games and finishing the season on top of the ladder, the Demons have been the best side all year. They take on the Bulldogs, who hit a little trouble at the end of the year, losing their last couple of games, but we have realized that they just had a big training block to get ready for the finals. Well, they are coming into this game cherry ripe after playing a couple of challenging games before the two-week break. Or will the Demons have the better fitness resting all the bumps and bruise you get during the season. They have only played 2 games in the last month & both times they have looked the class team of the competition. Let’s have a look at both sides & see if we can find a winner. 

Melbourne 

All year the Demons have been the team to beat & that is due to how even the side is across the board. They finished 1st in Defense & we all know that Defense wins championships. But it isn’t because they have amazing defensive players. It is due to the team defence and the zone Simon Goodwin has implemented. They set up so well, covering space and the main targets inside the defensive 50. The way they move the ball out of the 50 is impressive as well, thanks to what is close to the best midfield core in the league this year. Oliver, Bradshaw, Salem & Petracca have all been damaging at different stages of the year & that can be thanks to the best big man in the league Max Gawn. Max has been winning tap outs all year, and if you give the Melbourne midfielders the first touch of the ball, they will do great things with it. The One weakness the Demons have is the forward line. For a side that has won 80% of games this year, they only average 85 points. They have a good range of goalkickers but no major forward that dominates games. Ben brown could be that guy, but they will have to get multiple goals out of Bailey Fritch & Pickett, who can make something happen out of nothing. The way the demons beat you is the pressure in the forward half of the ground. Once that ball is in the Forward 50, it is tough to get out unless they kick a goal. 

Western Bulldogs 

The Bulldogs were the second-best side all year, but with a bad last month, they dropped to 5th, forcing them to take the hard way to the grand finale. That’s the way the Bulldogs like it. They won the flag a few years ago from 7th & now they look to do the same thing again. The Bulldogs are all about hard work and pressure. If they are on song, this game could be a very contested low scoring game, even with the wide-open spaces of Optus stadium. The Bulldogs have had a better season up forward than the Demons. They average over 90 points a game, but they are without their leading goal scorer Josh Bruce thanks injury. They will be leaning on Aaron Naughton & the surprise packet Cory Weighman. They will get a lot of help from the half flankers who are close to the best in the league in The Bont & Bailey Smith, who is built for the big stage. If the Demons don’t shut these guys down, they will be lifting another Premiership trophy at the Whitten Oval. The Defense of the bulldogs is a lot like the Demons, but I feel they are lacking a key defender & have been known to get in trouble. They need to double team and group defend the key forwards of the Demons to win this game. 

Final Thought 

After looking at everything and the 2 games, they played against each other earlier this year. This grand final will be a cracker. An old school grand final where pressure tackling and ball disposal will be king. The side that can run out all 4 quarters & keep a level head will come out on top. The Demons, I feel, are that team. With Max Gawn giving them first hands on the ball, they will be in the key position to win this game. They have made a hobbit of winning the game by forward pressure. Oliver and Petracca will be tagged by the dogs, so watch for a player like Salem to get free and have a big day. Maybe even Brayshaw. Petracca could move up forward & kick a couple of goals. Watch him as a Norm Smith chance. The game will be tight. I don’t expect a blowout, and I’m looking at an 86 – 72 scoreline for this game. If that happens, the cheese boards will be thrown in the air & after a 50-year premiership drought, the Grand old flag will finally be atop the AFL again.

 

AFL Finals Week 3

GEELONG vs MELBOURNE   

Friday night starts off with the two sides that played in one of the season’s best games. In that game, Max gawn kicked the winning goal with only seconds to go. The Cats gave up a big lead that night in the last quarter & I expect this game to be tight. The Cats are a side that looks tired. They are one of the oldest sides in the league, and in the last few games, they have struggled to run out the last quarter, letting teams back in and losing games they should have won. The Demons play a hard contested style of footy that doesn’t allow them to kick away or beat teams by a lot. Actually, with the Dees, defensive skills have only allowed a couple of games where the teams have scored over 160 points. In a match with Hawkins and Cameron up forward for the Cats & a wide range of goal kickers for the Demons, I see them enjoying the wide spaces of Optus stadium & book their ticket to the grand final in a fortnight. 

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE 1-39 $2.15                

PORT POWER vs BULLDOGS

Saturday night, a packed house at the Adelaide oval & not a bulldogs fan on the site. This is what the bulldogs have to overcome to get a spot in the grand finals. The Adelaide oval singing ‘You’ll never tear us apart’ could make this game over before it started. What a sight it will be. Both sides play a fast running style of football. This is why they are 1-1 this year in the 2 games they have played. The Power have a habit of losing games against the top 4 sides this year, and they could very easily put in a bad game if the Bulldogs can stop the ball from staying in the forward 50. The Dogs have a couple of big out themself since they last played with Bruce and Weightman out of the side. Their forward line is a little down on variety. They still have some of the best rebound players in the game, and they will need to be at their best to stop Dixon and the Power. With that being said, 50,000 people against 22, you have to go with the home side in this game, especially with the week of the Power should win and take on the Dees in a great grand final. 

Suggested Bets: POWER 1-39 $2.20 

 

AFL Finals Week 2

GEELONG vs PORT POWER   

Friday night starts off with a game that has lost a lot of spice from it. Without Toby Greene the GWS side is half the size you would normally get. If he was in this game, I would be tempted to pick the GWS over the cats. Geelong is a side that is very tired, and it has really shown the last 3 weeks they have played. They still have a lot of talent on the field in Cameron, Hawkins, Selwood and co. They are starting to get exposed late in games with a lack of run & with that comes rushed disposals, poor kicking and a lack of tackling. If GWS wins this game, they have to tackle their hearts out,m spread the Cats on the Big oval in Perth & find Forwards like Hogan on the lead with good kicks into the 50. I think they can do that for a period of time, but it will be too much for the GWS, who will lose by 3-4 goals 

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39 2.25                

BRISBANE vs BULLDOGS

This game has all the makings of being the game of the finals. The Brisbane Lions are a fast-moving high scoring team that got stopped by the Demons last week. The Bulldogs come back to form last week against the Bombers. Maybe they have just come out of a heavy training block, and they are starting to hit the finals at full speed. Both sides are similar in ways. They both need to win the ball out of the middle and take many marks inside the forward 50. The side that can run and carry the ball the most Saturday night will win this game. The only way the bulldogs will win this is if they outwork the Lions in defence. If you give the Lions time to move the ball and kick it in deep to their forward line, they will get outdone. This is what I think will happen, and the Lions will win a tough affair. 

Suggested Bets: Lions 1-39 $2.30 

 

AFL Finals Week 1

GEELONG vs PORT POWER   

Friday night starts off with a great game that we saw earlier in the year. Geelong & Port earlier this year, the Cats went over to SA and knocked off the Power. 91-112. That is a very high scoring game compared to today’s football normally. I don’t think this game will be that high scoring. I feel that the cats are starting to get tired after a long season. The Cats needed the week off. The Powers problems are that they struggle against the top 8 sides. They have a 4-4 record & surprisingly, the cats have a 4-5 record. It will be a tight game no matter what happens. Whoever can win the contested ball will win this game & I think it’s hard for Geelong to win a second time in SA power.

Suggested Bets: PORT POWER 1-39 $2.25                

SYDNEY SWANS vs GWS 

Elimination final & Sydney derby, what more could you want? This is a game we don’t know what will happen as it’s being played in Tasmania. Let’s look at the form in tassie. Well, Buddy Franklin loves it down there, Thirteen Thirteen. If the big bud can have a great game, it’s all over. Gws have a couple of players that can go with him & they are playing great football at the moment. I really like the GWS in the last couple of months. They deserve this shot in the finals. The Forward line with Hogan & Green is very classy and finishes well. They Need to kick straight. They can have Toby kick 3-3. He needs to kick 4-2 or 3-1. With big Mumford back, I think they can win the ball out of the centre and im happy to take a punt on the Giants in this one.  

Suggested Bets: GWS 1-39 2.60 

MELBOURNE vs BRISBANE 

Could this be the Dees year? after a comeback that they will talk about for years to come, the Demons finished on top of the ladder and take on the fast-finishing Lions. Melbourne have been a side that hasn’t won by a lot of points all year. They play a rock-solid defence, and most of the time, Melbourne games have under 160 points scored in them. This week, the Lions have a couple of big inclusions with Harris Andrews & Mitch Robinson back for this game. The contested ball will win this game & if the lions can kick straight, this game is over. I have to stick with the old advice of defence with Flags. If Melbourne can’t stop the Lions, they can’t beat them in a shot out. 

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE 1-39 $2.20

BULLDOGS vs ESSENDON 

Playing for a spot in week 2 of the finals, we have what should be the best game of the weekend between the disappointing Bulldogs and the impressive Bombers. The Dogs are another team that looks tired. They have lost their last few games & gone from the top 2 chances to fighting for survival. The Bombers are a different team. They have won their previous 3 games, which included a win against the Bulldogs. If the Bombers can keep control of the ball and move it forward to stringer and co. This could be their day. In this one, it all comes down to pressure the side that tackles the best and stops the opposition from having easy disposals will win this game. 

 Suggested Bets: BOMBERS 1-39 $2.80

 

AFL Betting Tips Round 23 Preview & Tips:

WESTERN BULLDOGS vs PORT POWER   

A great game to start off the last round of the season. The Bulldogs will be looking to head to the finals with some momentum after getting out played by the Hawks in Tassie last weekend. The Power took apart the Blues last week, but they have a terrible record against top 8 sides. They need to play well this week as there is a chance of a Home game throughout the finals. it is a massive prize for the winner 

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS 1-39 2.25

RICHMOND vs HAWTHORN

A month ago, the Hawks were in a lot of trouble, No they are flying and don’t want the season to end. At the same time, the Tigers have been in trouble and will miss the finals this year. They have got nothing out of star players like lynch but im sure they will be back bigger and better next year. The Hawks will also be better next year & will send Clarkson off with a win here today 

Suggested Bets: HAWKS $1.60 

SYDNEY vs GOLD COAST 

Sydney will be looking to keep a record going with a win against the Gold coast. They are a side that doesn’t really put teams away, but they always find a way to win football games. Sitting 6th on the ladder, they will have a home final next week & a good win can only help build their percentage. The Suns need to find some good players in the trade week they have good forwards and midfielders, but they don’t have the out and out star. Hopefully, they can find that star this year. 

Suggested Bets: SWANS 1-39 2.70

BRISBANE vs WEST COAST 

Playing for a double chance, the lions will need the win this game to get it. They have the best attack in the league when it’s up and firing, especially at home at the Gabba. The Eagles need the win to get back in the top 8 and a chance of playing finals. They have been great and home and terrible away all year. With this game being played in Qld you have to have to back the Lions & wish the eagles a better 2022 season.

 Suggested Bets: LIONS 1-39 $2.20

GEELONG vs MELBOURNE 

A game that could be the grand final in a months time between the Cats and Demons. This game is being played in Geelong that gives them a massive advantage, but the Dees have been the better side all year. I feel their style of football will suit the ground. No matter what happens in this game, I see it as a close game & the scoring to be under 150 points. The Dees have been in low scoring games all year, and I don’t see that changing any time soon.  

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM under 15.5 Points $2.40

CARLTON vs GWS 

A game where you have a side that is flying and a side that is waiting to sack it, coach. GWS have found a way to get into the finals thanks to a massive couple of months. Leon Cameron has done a great job getting them into the finals after looking lost a couple of months ago. Carlton has been on a downhill spiral for a while now. They are a good side, but they need some better players in key spots & without Harry McKay they cant win.  

Suggested Bets: GWS – 15.5 $1.60

ST KILDA vs DOCKERS   

The Saints are a lot like the Blues. They could be a good side & we expected a lot more from them this year. The Dockers, on the other hand, are building to a big 2022. They have unearthed some major young talent and with Fyfe back next year fully fit, they could be a shot at the finals. They were fantastic last week early, but after quarter-time didn’t really do much against the Eagles. With that in mind, I have to side with the saints here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the dockers get very close.  

Suggested Bets: SAINTS 1-39 $2.30

ESSENDON vs COLLINGWOOD 

The Bombers are flying at the moment & they couldn’t have picked a better time right before finals. Stringer has been dominating the midfield super & the defence is rock solid. They take on Collingwood, who have been better but still struggle in areas of the ground. They Can’t kick a winning score & they have poor skills by foot. I have to go with the bombers in this one.

Suggested Bets: BOMBERS -15.5 $1.60

CROWS vs KANGAROOS   

The Last game of the year is a battle between the bottom 2 sides, with the Roos already winning the wooden spoon. They will be trying to gain some pride by winning this game. The Crows have lost a lot of punch up forward without Tex walker & because of that, you can see why the Roos are a favourite for this game. It could be anything as the game is being played in SA, and the crows are always better at home. 

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM under 15.5 Points $2.40  

 

Round 22 Preview & Tips:

With these games still under consideration of when & where some of them will be played. I have put together a quick rundown of each game & some common things that I have noticed in recent weeks. 

NORTH MELBOURNE vs SYDNEY   

Both Sides were very disappointing last week. Coming off a loss I expect Sydney to bounce back with a Win. This game is expected to be played at Marvel Stadium & is a very high scoring ground, normally around 155 plus. Im expecting around the 88 to 66 scoreline in this one, so if you get Sydney over 15.5 points or under 166 total points, bet accordingly 

Suggested Bets: SYDNEY Under 166 points                    

BRISBANE vs COLLINGWOOD

Back on the winner’s list, the Lions after a big win against Freo. The Pies coming off a loss to the hawks. They have been playing a much better brand of football. They still need to find a better way towards the goal. The Lions are a high scoring team, especially at home at the Gabba. With Collingwood getting key players back in defence, I still expect the Lions to win as they have so many different ways to a goal like Bailey, who has been great for them recently. 

Suggested Bets: LIONS BAILEY 2+ goals 

GEELONG vs ST KILDA 

It was a shock last week for the cats to lose at home in Geelong to the GWS. I expect them not to lose a second week in a row. The Saints were great last week against the swans. They put in a four-quarter effort. It was great to see, but they will need to do that again to beat the Cats. The Cats should be too strong. 

Suggested Bets: GEELONG WIN

GOLD COAST vs ESSENDON

The Suns and Bombers are scheduled to play at Metricon. With the suns beating the Blues last week & the Bombers beating the Bulldogs, this could be an excellent game. The Suns looked a little tired in stages & the way the Bombers are playing. The Bombers have an excellent game plan to win this game in a close one.

 Suggested Bets: BOMBERS 1-39

GIANTS vs RICHMOND 

A game that I can see being taught & very good to watch. The Giants are playing with a lot of heart, but with toby Greene missing, they are missing their best player and the heart and soul of the team. Hogan is up forward, and the midfield is providing a good ball. The Tigers need to get a lot more out of their stars up forward. Lynch has been poor all year. If they are going to win this one, they need something big from him.

Suggested Bets: RICHMOND to cover the line 

HAWTHORN vs WESTERN BULLDOGS   

A game planned for Tasmania. The second home of the hawks. They take on a side I still believe is close to the best in the league. The Bulldogs will have some troubles now with a couple of key injuries. They should still be favourite for this one & if they aren’t back, they to win under 39 points. If not, look at the Hawks to cover the line in Tassie, as they are one of the best teams playing down there.

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS 1-39 or Hawks to cover a 18+ line 

MELBOURNE vs CROWS  

The Demons are still playing like a very good side. You can see why Sportsbet paid out on them winning the flag earlier in the year. The Crows are just playing out the season. With no Tex Walker they will still put up a big fight, but a side like Melbourne should be able to beat them easily. Melbourne games arent very high scoring, so take any line you can below 160 with the Demons 

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE Under 160.0

PORT vs CARLTON 

A game that should kill Carlton’s season and see the Power get a spot in the top 4. They have a great forward line and a solid midfield, and they could be the total package with good defenders. Carlton is still a little bit off. Maybe with some good draft picks and pickups in the offseason, they can make the 8 next year and be a surprise team. 

Suggested Bets: PORT 1-39 

WEST COAST vs FREO    

The Last game of the round is the WA derby. I love this game each year as it’s between two sides that will throw everything at one another. The Eagles keep proving they are great at home & terrible away. Freo is the same, but with the missing of Fyfe & a couple of quality players, they will find the eagles to be strong. The Dockers are like Carlton and not far off from being a top side, so what them in 2022.

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST 1-39       

Round 21 Preview & Tips:

GEELONG vs GWS   

Round 21 Starts with the Cats playing at home in Geelong against the Giants and sitting near the top of the ladder with key players still to come back. The Cats are ready for a big September. They have had an 80%+ win percentage in Geelong in recent years. They should win this game but with it being played on a Friday night, expect a low scoring game.  

Suggested Bets: GEELONG Und 153.5 $1.90

CARLTON vs GOLD COAST 

Super Saturday starts off early with the blues taking on the suns at Marvel stadium. Marvel stadium can surprise many people with how many points can be scored at this ground in a game. The last 2 games here the Blues have played in have gone over 185 points. The Suns aren’t a very high scoring team like the blues, but they do have King up forward who could kick a bag full.

Suggested Bets: CARLTON OVER 160 $2.20

NORTH vs RICHMOND 

This game is being played at the MCG between the Tigers, who love the MCG and the Roos, who are sitting last on the ladder but have been playing well the last couple of weeks. The Tigers will have to move the ball a lot faster and kick better than they did last week in WA against the Dockers. They have had a smaller break which could make this game a lot closer than it should be 

Suggested Bets: TIGERS 1-39 $2.40

CROWS vs PORT POWER

The traditional SA derby between the Crows and Power. The Power will be looking for a big win here to cement a place in the top 4 and to hopefully build up some momentum heading towards the finals. The Crows are in a little bit of trouble if Tex Walker doesn’t play after an investigation into a comment he made while watching some reserve football. Watch for a big came from Charlie Dixon, he loves this game each year. 

 Suggested Bets: POWER -15.5 $1.60

SAINTS vs SYDNEY  

A game that sees the Swans take on the saints. I really like the way the swans are playing at the moment. They have a strong defence, great midfield and a good mix of forwards. With Buddy heading towards 1000 goals, hopefully, he can make it by the end of the year. The Saints are just struggling to finish off games. The blues ran over the top of the saints & I think the swans will do the same here. 

Suggested Bets: SWANS 1-39 $2.10

HAWTHORN vs COLLINGWOOD   

Two sides that are up and down each week take on each other in Tassie. The Hawks coming off a win against the Lions last week, take on the Pies. The Pies are starting to play some good football under Robert Harvey. They are a lot better up forwards, an area they have struggled with for years. The Hawks in Tassie are always a few goals better than most places. I expect this to be close.  

Suggested Bets: HAWTHORN 1-39 $2.45

BULLDOGS vs ESSENDON 

This will be a great game on a Sunday afternoon between the Bulldogs and Bombers. The Bulldogs are playing so well at the moment. The Bombers are playing well, but I don’t think they can beat one of the premiership favourites. The Bombers will need a big game from the package, Merritt & Parish. They have been playing so well, but to take over a game against this Bulldogs team is another thing. 

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS 1-39 $2.20

FREO vs BRISBANE 

A game where we will see how the struggling Lions are going to respond against a very good Fremantle side. Last week even with poor kicking, the dockers defeated the Tigers & showed signs that they are building for the future. They are well-coached & have a lot of great young talent. The Lions need to fight back after a poor month, and a trip to WA won’t make this any easier. This is their last chance for me.

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE 1-39 $2.10

WEST COAST vs MELBOURNE    

The Last game of the round is on Monday night between the eagles and Demons. The Dees had an easy win last week against the Suns by close to 90 points. They are starting to build towards the finals. The Eagles are a terrible side anywhere outside of Optus stadium. With that in mind, they are a shot in this game. With the line around 15.5, they can get close to being in the game with the demons. They keep games low scoring and have kept games closer when people believe they should smash teams. 

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE 1-39 $2.20

 

Round 20 Preview & Tips:

ST KILDA vs CARLTON   

Round 20 Starts with the Saints taking on the Blues. The Saints are favourites in this one, and with a good tight game last week against the Eagles, you can understand why. The Blues went down to the Roos last week in a bad performance, but I think they can bounce back here at the line. But the safest play may be Saints 1-39 

Suggested Bets: Saints 1-39 $2.10

WESTERN BULLDOGS vs CROWS

Super Saturday starts very early with the Bulldogs taking on the Crows. This should be an easy game for the Bulldogs, as I still believe they are one of the teams to beat this year. The Crows are a good side, but the Bulldogs will shut down Tex Walker, making it hard for the Crows to win. 

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS -25 $1.50

NORTH vs GEELONG 

Another game this week between a very good premiership contender & a side that is near the bottom of the table. North Melbourne have also lost Ben Cunnington to illness. Ben is one of their star midfielders & very hard to replace. Geelong should win this game even with it being played in Tassie. 

Suggested Bets: GEELONG -15.5 $1.50

GOLD COAST vs MELBOURNE

The demons will be looking to bounce back in after losing to the Bulldogs last week. They take on the Suns. The Suns started off well last week against the Lions but still ended up losing by 50 points. They are struggling to run out a full game & a tough side like Melbourne won’t make it easy for them to do, so here 

 Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE -15.5 $1.50

COLLINGWOOD vs WEST COAST  

A game im not excited about is this one between the Pies and the Eagles. With this game being played at the MCG and two sides that have their problems getting on the scoreboard at times, I’m happy to say this will be a low scoring game & possible to be taking Collingwood at the line. 

Suggested Bets: Total Points Und 155.5 $1.80

ESSENDON vs SYDNEY 

 Two sides are fighting for a finals position. You have the Bombers, who have been on a roll recently & the Swans, who are lucky to have Buddy Franklin playing for them this week. This will be a tight game, and I think I might go with an upset and back the Bombers to win. The better bet would be to take the massive line of 18 points & hope they get close.  

Suggested Bets: BOMBERS + 18.5 $1.95

HAWTHORN vs BRISBANE 

 Not sure this will be much of a match, but the tassie crowd get to see another game in the apple aisle. Brisbane is playing some great football at the moment. They take on a hawthorn side that is fighting between players trying to figure out who is the coach & blooding a lot of young kids. They will be a good side in a couple of years, but here they might lose by a lot here.  

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE -15.5 $1.50

GWS vs PORT 

A game that could shape the final 8 with its result. The Giants take on the Power. The Giants have been close in the last few games but with some big-name players out thanks to covid, they have just fallen short. If they get a couple of players back, it will be hard for them to match fitness. So watch for them to have a slow start & tape off at the end of the game. Port will be able to outrun them and should win this tight affair 

Suggested Bets: PORT 1-39 $2.10

FREMANTLE vs RICHMOND 

 The Last game of the round is between the Dockers and the Tigers. The highlight of this game is the fact the Dockers have brought out a tremendous retro Jumper during the week. Nat Fyfe is done for the season after surgery & it gives the Dockers some game time to the kids. The Tigers are still an outside chance of making the 8, but it’s a long shot. a win here will get them one step closer. 

Suggested Bets: TIGERS 1-39 $2.20

 

AFL Round 18 Preview:

PORT vs COLLINGWOOD   

Round 19 Starts on Friday night with the Power playing the Pies. The Power coming off a win against the Saints take on the Pies, who gave up a lead against the Blues. Again the Pies forward line isn’t firing enough to kick a winning score; This will be their significant problem again against the Power side that will have forwards like Charlie Dixon this week. 

Suggested Bets: PORT 1-39 UN 155.5  $3.80

CARLTON vs KANGAROOS

Super Saturday starts with the Blues & Roos. Carlton is developing into a nice side. Without Cripps last week, they came from behind to beat the Pies. The Roos lost against the high flying bombers. Carlton ball movement late in the game and tall forwards should be too much for the Roos this week 

Suggested Bets: CARLTON $1.50

BRISBANE vs GOLD COAST 

Another week, another derby. This time it is the Q clash between the Lions & the Suns. The Lions went down to the Tigers last week & they have a terrible record away from the Gabba. The Suns put up a good fight against the Bulldogs. Danhier, Cameron & The Lions need to bounce back from last weeks loss with a big win here to keep their side in touch with the top 4 & second chance. 

Suggested Bets: LIONS -15.5 $1.50

WEST COAST vs ST KILDA

In a game that should be a bit of one-way traffic, the Eagles take on the saints in WA. We all know that the eagles are a much better side in WA. After a couple of poor games away, they get another chance to cement a spot in the 8. Sitting 7th on the ladder at the moment, the Eagles need to put a couple of wins together. The Saints are playing for their season a couple of games behind the eagles. It will help them make up the ground they can get a win this week.  

 Suggested Bets: EAGLES 1-39 $2.20

MELBOURNE vs BULLDOGS 

The final game of Super Saturday is between 1st & 2nd on the ladder. This game should be a cracker. With this game being played at the MCG, it puts the favour in Melbournes court. They are a much better side at the G., But last week, they should have been beaten by the hawks. Melbourne always finds a way to win. They never win by a lot, and their games are never high scoring. Actually, they have only had one game over 160 points this year so let’s use that to our advantage & back them under 155 points this week. 

Suggested Bets: DEMONS 1-39 Und 155.5 $3.40

CROWS vs HAWTHORN 

Two sides that are struggling at the moment in the Hawks and the Crows. With this game now being played in Melbourne, it changes who I would be selecting. The Crows put up a good fight against the Eagles but it was Hawthorn that surprised everyone with a draw against the top of the table Demons. The Hawks are getting back some key players, including Chad Wingard & they should be too strong for the Crows this week if they can play a full four quarters.

Suggested Bets: HAWKS 1-39 Und 161.5 $ 3.25

SYDNEY vs DOCKERS 

Not sure this will be much of a game, let alone how much of a crowd will be in Queensland. The Swans are still the surprise packet of the year. They are sitting 7th on the ladder, and a win here will help them keep a spot in the 8. Freo has been slowing moving towards the 8. They are 10th at the moment, but with injuries to some key players, they cant keep this up all & they will find the swans to go in this one. 

Suggested Bets: SWANS -15.5 $1.50

GEELONG vs RICHMOND   

A cracking game for the middle of Sunday afternoon at the G between the Cats & Tigers. Both sides kicked big scores last week. It’s hard for teams to kick over 100 [points in a game this year, and the tigers did that for the first time in a while against the Lions. If they can have that type of game against the cats this week, anything is possible. They will be playing without Dusty as he is gone for the year. I still think the cats will win this one thanks to the Tomahawk up forward & the way the middle deliver him the ball. 

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39 $2.30

ESSENDON vs GWS 

The Last game of the round is between the Bombers & Giants. It’s a real 8 point game as both sides are around 8th position on the ladder. The Bombers have been a little slow in getting the job done recently, but thanks to some big last quarter, they get over the line and have won their last few games. The Giants were in the game against the Swans thanks to a fast start but folded in the last quarter and lost by 3 goals. I really see this game heading the same way, but the Bombers cant let the Giants get that far in front, or they may struggle to catch them.

Suggested Bets: BOMBERS 1-39 $2.20

 

Round 18 Preview & Tips:

FREO vs GEELONG   

Round 18 Starts with the Dockers playing the Cats at Optus stadium. The Dockers have been playing good football with Nat Fyfe back. They play at home this week, which gives them a chance to beat the Cats as they will be undermined and playing on a ground that has had a lot of rain on it in the last week. I see this game being a low scoring affair, and most of the night games the Dockers play are low scoring. 

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39 UN 161.5 $2.80

RICHMOND vs BRISBANE

Friday nights footy is a game between two sides that lost last week. In the case of the Tigers, they have been on a downhill spiral for the last couple of weeks and have fallen to 12th on the ladder. The Lions really lost their way last round when Hipwood when out injured. They should bounce back with a win here and roll on to a top 4 spot when the finals come around in a months time.

Suggested Bets: LIONS $1.50

GWS vs SYDNEY

Another week, another game moved because of covid. This time it’s the Sydney derby between the swans and GWS. GWS are back in the good books now, but they are playing against one of the in-form sides in the league in Sydney. They are a side that plays with a lot of hate and attack when they have the ball and when they don’t. With players like Buddy Franklin up forward, it will be hard for them to stop this swans side. 

Suggested Bets: SWANS 1-39 $2.10

GOLD COAST vs BULLDOGS

In a game that should be a little one-sided, we have the Suns playing the Bulldogs. The Dogs need to bounce back after a loss last week against the Swans. The Suns just got over the line against the Giants. They are a side that doesn’t score much at all. If they can keep this game low-scoring, they might be in with a chance. I think it will be an easy win for the Dogs. 

 Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS -15.5 $ 1.60

MELBOURNE vs HAWTHORN 

Another game that could be a blowout. The Demons take on the Hawks, who have been very disappointing the last few weeks. The Demons just keep on getting the job done. Melbourne games have been under 165 points for most of the year so expect a game with a scoreline along the lines of 85-50 with the demons winning by 4-6 goals.

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE -15.5 $1.40

SAINTS vs PORT POWER 

Two sides that are very up and down that take on each other in a hard game to judge. The Saints defeated the Lions last week with a big second half. The Power took on another top 8 side and got humbled. looking at the form lines, you have to think they bounce back as the Saints aren’t in the top 8 but playing away from home & down on confidence, they may lose another game & if they can’t find answers fast, the finals may be very quick for Port. 

Suggested Bets: PORT 1-39 Und 161.5 $ 3.25

KANGAROOS vs BOMBERS 

Not sure what to make of this game. The Roos on Monday night got the job done in WA against the Eagles. In a surprise to most people, the Roos played a lot tougher than the Eagles. This weeks game will be a lot harder, and with the smaller break, I think the Roos are right for the picking here. Stringer and the boys from Windy Hill have been playing great football recently. They have been starting to match up the great stats they post each week

Suggested Bets: BOMBERS 1-39 UNDER 161.5 $ 2.80

COLLINGWOOD vs CARLTON   

With Collingwood coming off a win for the first time in a while, they will be looking for 2 in a row against the Blues. The Blues played well in stages last week against the Cats at the G. The Blues are better than the Pies, but with the new coach, the Pies have improved a little bit. I still don’t like the forwards set up, and I find it hard for them to kick a big winning score. Carlton are starting to have the same problems, but I think they will do better here and get a win over the Pies. 

Suggested Bets: CARLTON 1-39 $ 2.50

WEST COAST vs CROWS   

The Last game of the round is between the Eagles and the Crows. A nothing game that could turn into anything really. Someone on these sides will need to step up. The Eagles lost to the Roos at home, a game they would typically win 80% of the time. The Crows are a side that can’t win without Tex Walker. The Crows scored one of the teams lowest scores ever, so look for the under here again this week. 

Suggested Bets: EAGLES -15.5 UND 155.5 $2.80

 

Round 17 Preview & Tips:

CROWS vs ESSENDON

Friday night footy is a game between two sides that will go hard for all 4 quarters. The bombers are a good side, while the crows have a couple of players playing some of their best football ever. If the bombers stop Tex Walker they win this game. I think they will & by a few goals.

Suggested Bets: BOMBERS -15.5 $1.70

HAWTHORN vs DOCKERS

Another week, another game in Tassie. This week it’s the hawks and the Dockers playing down there. The Hawks record is Tassie is fantastic & they will love being back there. It’s hard to understand why they aren’t favourites for this game just for that reason alone. The Dockers are playing well, and with Nat Fyfe back, they are always a chance, but I will take the hawks at the odds. 

Suggested Bets: HAWKS 1-39 $2.50

CARLTON vs GEELONG

In a game that Carlton needs to win to stay in finals contention, they take on the Cats, who will be without Cameron for a couple of weeks thanks to a leg injury. This will open up space for the big Tomahawk to kick a few goals at the MCG. the cats are all steam ahead for the finals & should win this game & put an end to the Blues season

 Suggested Bets: CATS 1-39 $2.10

BRISBANE vs ST KILDA 

Another game that had to be moved thanks to COVID. The Lions will take on the saints & should put on a clinic. The Lions, in my eyes, are one of the inform sides at the moment. A team with great talent all over the park. They should be too strong for the Saints, who I think need to build for a big 2022. Start to get everyone fit. They have a good list, but they can’t keep everyone in the park simultaneously.

Suggested Bets: LIONS-15.5 $1.60

GWS vs GOLD COAST  

Two sides that are really struggling this year are GWS & the Gold Coast. The expansion cup or draft picks don’t win flags, as some people have called it. This is really a nothing game & your not sure what team will show up on the day, but if you look at the talent in the sides, GWS has the better team but will need 3-4 goals from Greene. The Suns are a few years off a top 8 side so let’s go with the GWS 

Suggested Bets: GWS 1-39 Und 161.5 $3.25

TIGERS vs COLLINGWOOD   

Not sure what to make of this game. The Tigers need a win to get them moving up the ladder and into the top 8. Collingwood needs a win as they are playing terrible football at the moment, and the change of coach hasn’t done anything to spark them up. The Tigers are just playing a lot better than the pies, who still have problems kicking a winning score and they will struggle here again. 

Suggested Bets: TIGERS 1-39 UNDER 161.5 $ 3.80

BULLDOGS vs SYDNEY   

With both sides coming off a win last, this is my game of the round. The Swans were very impressive last week, and that’s all you can be when you take on another top 8 side like the Eagles. The Bulldogs are close to the form side of the league at the moment. I think the line of 21.5 is crazy for this game. Either go Sydney at the + 21.5 or the Dogs to win under 39 points. That has to be the safest bet in this game.

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS 1-39 $2.10

WEST COAST vs KANGAROOS   

The Last game of the round is being played on a Monday between the Eagles & Roos. The Eagles are back playing in WA. They need to be as when they play in Vic or anywhere besides WA, they are terrible. The Roos are trying, but this isn’t a game they will win. Past Roos sides may have had a chance to win here, but this roos side, if they beat the eagles in WA, the eagles should give up on a top 8 spot on the ladder and their season.

Suggested Bets: EAGLES -15.5 $ 1.50

 

Round 16 Preview & Tips:

GOLD COAST vs RICHMOND   

Round 16 starts the Suns taking on the Tigers. In a game the tigers really should win, the boys from punt rd will be looking for an improved effort from some key men. The Suns lost to the Kangaroos last week. They are starting to look tired and can’t win the ball in the middle. This is where the Tigers should dominate, and I think you will find this game may be low scoring. 

Suggested Bets: TIGERS UND 164.5   $ 2.50

GEELONG vs ESSENDON

Friday night footy is a game between two sides that will go hard for all four quarters. The Bombers put in a good performance against the Demons last week. This week they take on Geelong in Geelong, and we all know that is a hard place to win. With the Cats winning over 80% of their games down there, we have to settle for the cats. 

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39/ UND 165.5 $2.90

MELBOURNE vs GWS 

Another week, another chance for the dees to open up their lead at the top of the ladder. This week they take on the GWS, who went down to the Hawks last week at the MCG. The Giants started off strong, but in the second half, they went missing. The Hawks stopped toby Greene & that was the end of the Giants. Depending on how straight the dees will determine how much they win by, they kicked 9-14 last week, so they have been known to miss in front of goal in tough conditions.

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE UND 161.5 $2.00

HAWTHORN vs PORT POWER

In the perfect way to celebrate Shaun Burgoyne’s 400th game. The Hawthorn & Port premiership player will take on his old team at the MCG. Silk has been one of the best aboriginal players ever to play the game & with his unbelievable skill, he has wowed fans of both teams for years. The Power should win this game, but the Hawks young stars are improving each week and will make this game a contest for Shaun

 Suggested Bets: PORT 1-39 $ 2.10

WESTCOAST vs SYDNEY 

Another game that had to be moved thanks to covid. The Swans will play the Eagles in Geelong. The Swans should love playing on the small home ground of the cats. The Eagles play their best footy on a big ground. With big key forwards on both sides, space in the forwards line will be key here & Nic Nat’s ruck work so the eagles can get first use of the ball will need to be at his best. 

Suggested Bets: EAGLES 1-39 $2.50

COLLINGWOOD vs ST KILDA   

Two sides that are really struggling this year compared to their expectations are the saints and magpies. I don’t know what to make of this game. The Pies are good in defence. The saints struggle in attack. The Magpies & the Saints don’t play at the MCG very often. All the stats say this will be a low scoring game with both teams struggling to score over 80 points each time they play & when they do, the other side only scores 50-60 points. so under 150 points is the way to go 

Suggested Bets: SAINTS 1-39 Und 156.5 $ 4.50

BRISBANE vs CROWS 

Not sure what to make of this game. When I check the odds on Sportsbet the game market wasn’t even up. I think the lions are playing some of the best footy at the moment and will win this game with ease. They have a good key defender to shut down Tex Walker & one of the best forward lines in the league. Watch for them to kick on now before finals.

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE -15.5 $ 1.40

CARLTON vs FREO   

With both sides coming off a win last week & this game moving to Victoria gives everything in the Blues favour. Freo did win last weeks game in Melbourne against the Pies. They were without Nat Fyfe last week, but if he comes in, this could be a closer game. With two weeks in Melbourne, I think the dockers will lose this game & Carlton can continue to move up the ladder slowly 

Suggested Bets: CARLTON $ 1.40

BULLDOGS vs KANGAROOS   

The Last game of the round is between the Bulldogs & Ross. The Doggies are a very good team. They take on a Roos side that is coming off a win. They will need to play out of their skin to beat the dogs. The Dogs are in for a percentage boost here & with the way they played last week, this game may get very ugly. Im looking at a 40 + point win here from the dogs. The price is nothing special, but I do think this could be a game with a massive blowout.

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS -39.5 $ 1.50

 

Round 15 Preview & Tips:

BRISBANE vs GEELONG  

Round 15 starts with the match of the round & a game that could be a grand final preview. The lions & Cats are 3rd & 4th on the ladder, but both sides are on the charge. They have some of the best forward lines in the league, with the cats averaging 100 points against sides in the top 8 tHe Lions are almost unstoppable in Brisbane & I have to side with them in a coin flip game. They will need to kick straight here to beat the Cats & in a high scoring game I think they can 

Suggested Bets: LIONS 1-39/ Over 164.5 points $4.50

RICHMOND vs ST KILDA

Friday night football is normally a big stage for a big game. This game at the start of the year looked huge. Now not so much as the Saints haven’t shown up this year. They are sitting 13th on the ladder with only 5 wins. They have been very disappointing at stages. Richmond is still hanging around in the top 8, but as a Richmond team of the last few years, they can be set for a big couple of months to be cheery ripe for Finals. Tigers to score an easy win here 

Suggested Bets: RICHMOND -15.5 $1.60

KANGAROOS vs GOLD COAST 

Another game is between two sides that are struggling, but I guess we have to watch it as there’s not much sport this weekend. The Roos & Suns are 2 sides that love to play in Tassie & with this game being at their second home, they are favourites to get the chocolates in this one. The Suns still need to find a way to the goals besides kicking the ball to King. I can’t see them kicking a big enough score to win this one 

Suggested Bets: KANGAROOS 1-39 $2.10

COLLINGWOOD vs FREO

In the first game for the Magpies after Bucks leaving. They go up against the Dockers at marvel stadium. The Dockers are a very Defensive side like the Pies. With that being said, they have set the Line at a tiny 152.5. When they played last year, the score was 61-49, so it will be hard to expect a high scoring game in this one. Hopefully, the pies will come out with more attacking flair and win this game for new coach Robert Harvey. 

 Suggested Bets: COLLINGWOOD 1-39 $ 2.10

PORT POWER vs SYDNEY 

Another game that will be a battle between 2 sides we should see in the finals this year. The Port power take on the Swans in SA. The Swans keep fighting for all 4 quarters, while the Power has been know to choke against good sides. I expect the Power to be too strong up forward in this one and win thanks to a big game from Charlie Dixion. 

Suggested Bets: POWER 1-39 $2.20

BOMBERS vs DEMONS   

After getting the win last week against the Hawks, the bombers take on the top of the table Demons. The Demons are coming off the bye this week and should be well-rested to run out this game. The Bombers will need to start fast to stay in this game & all the stats we get sent show they might be able to put up a big fight against the demons this week. Jake Stringer was terrific last week & I liked the young ruckman from the bombers. He will need to take it to another level against Max Gawn in his biggest test so far. Demons to win a challenging game.

Suggested Bets: DEMONS 1-39 $ 2.10

GIANTS vs HAWKS   

This game has been moved to the MCG because of Sydney and COVID. This helps bring the Hawks into the game. The Line is only 6 points, but I find this hard to believe. If this game was being played in Sydney, I think they would have smashed the hawks. How much has this game changed because it’s now being played in Melbourne? Well, I think the Giants still win But not by much. 

Suggested Bets: GWS 1-39 $ 2.10

WEST COAST vs BULLDOGS   

Another cracking game between 2 sides that should be playing finals. The Eagles are at home against 2nd on the table Bulldogs. With the Eagles playing so well at home, the easy tip is to pick the eagles and watch them play well at home again. I think they might be beaten by the bulldogs in this game thanks to the Bulldogs pace & kicking ability. The Bulldogs have many players that can kick goals, and a big score in this one is a must for the boys from Footscray. 

Suggested Bets: TOTAL POINTS OVER 152.5 $ 1.90

CARLTON vs CROWS 

The last game of the round is between the Blues and the Crows at marvel. I know not many people will be watching this game, but it’s a nice lead into the NRL State of Origin on last Sunday night. The crows live & die by Tex Walker if he has a big day; they win if he gets stopped by the Blues defence. It’s as simple as that. The Blues are the better side at the moment & need to win this game to keep their coach in a job. If they drop this game against the Crows, they may be sacking their coach on Tuesday.

Suggested Bets: BLUES 1-39 $ 2.20

AFL Betting Tips Round 14 Preview & Tips:

BULLDOGS vs GEELONG   

Round 14 starts with a cracking game between the Bulldogs & Geelong. Both sides are playing good football at the moment, but the Cats will be helped with a full house down in Geelong and the home-field advantage. The Cats have an 85% winning record in Geelong in recent years. The Dogs will love playing on this ground as they have a good running side with great disposal. I think the way the Cats have added Cameron & Issac Smith to this side is what could be the difference between them losing the grand final last year and winning it this year. 

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39 $ 2.20 ✅

 

GOLD COAST vs PORT 

In a bit of a nothing game, we have the Gold Coast Suns taking on the Power. The Suns need to find another way to goal as King is being covered by a couple of men each time the ball gets down towards him. He will be an outstanding tall forward, but if they cant get him some help in the next year or so, they may be wasting his talent. The Power is a different side. They have 3-4 excellent key forwards, a good midfield and a handy defence. In recent weeks the only thing that has been a question about them is their heart. They can beat the sides below them. If they are in a contest, they can be found wanting. 

Suggested Bets: PORT $1.40 

KANGAROOS vs BRISBANE 

Another game that is between two sides that totally different The Roos are sitting at the bottom of the table while the lions are in the top 4. The only thing that makes this Game exciting is that it’s in Tassie. The Roos are great in Tasmania & play the ground so well. Brisbane is a 10x time better side, but you don’t know what is going to happen. Take Brisbane 39 Plus if you think class always wins. or if you are a little brave, take the Roos at the line of +35.5

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE 1-39 $2.40

GWS vs CARLTON 

In a game that I expect to be tight, the Giants take on Carlton. When the Giants win, they only avg a winning margin of 9 points, while Carlton has stayed in each Game for 90% of the time & lose a majority of their games by under four goals. This will make it a struggle for any team to kick away. With it being played at Giant stadium Harry Mckay will need to kick a bag full of goals for the Blues to win this one. He shows that he can handle that type of pressure each week, but he is not quite there right now. I like how the Giants matchup against the Blues, so I will go with them in this Game.  

 Suggested Bets: GWS $ 1.65 ✅

HAWTHORN vs ESSENDON 

In the last game of the round, we have another game in Tassie with one side playing so well in the apple isle. Hawthorn takes on the Bombers in a traditional “Line in the sand” Game. The Bombers are playing well & all the key stats say they should be a lot higher on the ladder than 11th. Averaging close to 100 points a game & with a high position midfield, they have a chance to run rings around the young Hawks. Clarkson found something extraordinary last week when the Hawks put in a blinder against the swans in Sydney. With that confidence & a winning percentage of over 75 % in Tassie, the hawks look good at the line to win this one 

Suggested Bets: HAWTHORN +15.5 $ 1.65 ✅

 

AFL Betting Tips Round 13 Preview & Tips:

SYDNEY vs HAWTHORN

Sydney takes on the hapless Hawks in Friday night footy. The Swans are sitting 6th on the ladder & will be looking to get a major win here to help boost their percentage. They are a side that has always been in the game & will fight. This means they don’t blow out teams like the Hawks when they really should. I believe this will be a low scoring game, and with the possibility of wet conditions, this may help keep this game close. If that is the case, look at hawthorn at the line, as it will be massive. 

Suggested Bets: SYDNEY/ UND 161.5 $2.10

FREO vs GOLD COAST 

Another game is between two sides that are struggling. This will make for a very even game. The Dockers picked up a lot of injuries last week, and the boys from Freo will need to overcome this to beat Gold coast. The Dockers have let a lot of points in defensively this year, conceding over 100 points already. The Suns will be looking to take advantage of this, with King hopefully kicking straight and finding some form in front of goal. This is a tough game to find a winner, so let’s settle with it being a close game.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 24.5 $1.70

SAINTS vs CROWS 

In a game that could be a battle between the two key forwards, the young star King will have to kick a bag full for the saints to win against one of the inform Forwards in the league in Tex Walker. Tex has been on fire for the crows, but sides have figured out that if you are going to beat them, you need to double team Tex. The other way is stopping supply to the big forward. If they can do that, They can win as they have more goal scorers and can take advantage of the average Crows backline. This game is being played in QLD, so there isn’t a home-field advantage, and it hard to see how it will all play out, but I think the Saints can get the 4 points. 

 Suggested Bets: SAINTS $ 1.75

KANGAROOS vs GWS 

Another game that had to be moved thanks to Victoria’s covid out this one is down in good old Tasmania. Where the Roos have a fantastic record, they take on the fearless GWS in a game that will be hard tough with a chance of snow. GWS are really missing Toby Greene, but they should overcome the Kangaroos in this game. It won’t be easy, and with a faster running midfield, they could blow this game out. It’s not really a game I want to bet in, but if you don’t back them, they always win. 

Suggested Bets: GWS 1-39 $2.00

WESTCOAST vs RICHMOND   

In the game of the round, we have the Eagles and Tigers squaring off at Optus Stadium. Both sides are coming off great wins, with the Tigers winning the Dreamtime game last week against the Bombers & the Eagles defeating the blues away from home. Being back in WA is normally a great thing for the eagles, but the wide-open spaces could help the tigers more than the Eagles, with the tigers having such explosive talent. I still have to settle with the Eagles, but if the tigers can bring some of their old tackling pressure, they will win this game as the Eagles will fold up rather quickly.   

Suggested Bets: EAGLES 1-39 $ 2.70

MELBOURNE vs COLLINGWOOD 

In the last game of the round, we have the Big Freeze game between the Demons & Pies. This game will also be the last game Nathan Buckley coaches his beloved Magpies after over a decade in the job. The Pies have a lack of talent to thank for bucks losing his job. The Only thing they can hold on to is that the demons were in the same position as they were now last year. If you look at them now, they are flag favourites & looking unstoppable. It is hard for them to lose this game against the pies, but you never know the pies may pull something out of the bag for Bucks. 

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE -15.5 $ 1.45

 

AFL Betting Tips Round 12 Preview & Tips:

BRISBANE vs MELBOURNE   

Round 12 starts with a great game between Brisbane and Melbourne. It could very well be a preview of a finals game deep in September. The Top of the table Dees take on the Lions in NSW thanks to victoria’s current COVID problems. They play at Giant stadium that is a big oval, and it will favour the fast running Lions. The Lions are the inform team of the League averaging 17 goals a game in the last 3 weeks. Melbourne have had an up and down period defeating the Top of the table Bulldogs and losing to the lowly Crows. The best part of Melbourne’s game is the midfield and getting first hands on the ball. If they can master that, they will win this game as the key defenders for the lions & different ways to goals favour the lions  

Suggested Bets: LIONS 1-39 $ 2.50

SYDNEY vs ST KILDA

Sydney gets a chance here to cement their spot in the top 8 against the Saints. The Saints haven’t lived up to the hype of the start of the season. They are limited in ways of going towards a goal & the way teams have been locking down Brad Hill have shut down their running game. Yes, they have some injuries, but they are showing a lack of attack on the player or ball. Sydney, on the other hand, don’t have this problem. They are always in the game and will keep it tight but have found ways to win when it counts 

Suggested Bets: SYDNEY/ UND 171.5 $2.10

CROWS vs COLLINGWOOD 

Another game is between two sides struggling. They have let the Magpies into SA for this game. Collingwood, I have to say, is really on the slide this year. They struggle to kick a winning score, and without Brodie Grundy this week, it could be an even bigger ask for them to stop Tex Walker and the crows. Tex has been on fire with a bag full of goals thanks to the midfield putting on a lot of pressure & kicking the ball right to his chest. With a packed house and a side that is playing much better football, I have to stick with the crows 

Suggested Bets: CROWS 1-39 $2.10

RICHMOND vs BOMBERS

In the Dreamtime game this year being played in the NT, we have two sides on a high after a win last week. The Bombers did something not many sides can claim to do, and that beat the Eagles in WA while the tigers got over the line against the crows. The Tigers have got many star players back, but it will take a couple of weeks for them to get up to speed & fitness. The Bombers are a funny side. They hit many KPIs that you find in good teams but aren’t winning as many games as the KPI think they should. They can cause an upset here, but I feel like the tigers are still the team to beat.  

 Suggested Bets: TIGERS $ 1.50

WESTCOAST vs CARLTON 

Another game that had to be moved thanks to Victoria’s covid outbreak is now being played at the SCG. The Blues will be looking to take advantage of the Eagles poor travelling record this year. With that being said, they are favourites for this game. The Eagles lost a few players to injuries last week, and that allowed the bombers to come back and beat them at home. With a much better side on paper, the Eagles will need to play the tiny SCG ground different to how they play the much bigger Optus stadium. This will cause them a few problems but their run and carry style will hopefully see them through 

Suggested Bets: EAGLES 1-39 $2.50

BULLDOGS vs FREO   

The Last game of the round is between the Bulldogs & Dockers. The Doggies are a very team that hit a speed hump last weekend against the Daemons. I expect this result to fire them up for this game and to show the League that they are a flag contender. Freo, on the other hand, seems to be in a tight game each time they play at home. Last week they were found wanting against a premiership contender side in Port Power. This week, they could be in the same situation against a faster-moving side. 

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS -15.5 $ 1.40

 

AFL Betting Tips Round 11 Preview & Tips:

BRISBANE vs RICHMOND   

Round 11 starts with a great game, in the battle for top spot on the ladder. You have a side in Melbourne coming off its first loss of the year. While the Bulldogs are playing the best football of the last month, They are the highest-scoring team in the league, and they have one of the best defences in the league. The ball movement in the last month has been their key to winning games by big margins & I think they can win this game on Friday night. 

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS 1-39 $ 2.25 ❌

COLLINGWOOD vs GEELONG

Saturday afternoon @ a cold, wet MCG. We have Collingwood vs Geelong. This is a game that can become a defensive slog. Collingwood is a side that always struggles to kick a winning score as they lack key forwards as Geelong has. With Geelong, they have a star-studded forwards line, but they are all tall key forwards, and in wet conditions, they could be found out. Geelong will win this game, but I like the under as im looking at an 85-50 game. 

Suggested Bets: GEELONG/ UND 160.5 $2.20 ✅

BRISBANE vs GWS 

What a team Brisbane has become playing in Brisbane. They are almost a lock like West Coast in Perth or Geelong in Geelong. Charlie Cameron has hit his strides, the midfield is playing well, and players like Zorko are playing in a new role that is working. GWS is a winner of 3 of their last 5 games, only losing to Richmond & the Bulldogs. They are playing well, but they will struggle to contain the lions at home. 

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE -15.5 $1.60 ✅

ST KILDA vs NORTH MELBOURNE 

Another game is between two sides that are struggling. The Saints are the better side, but they are inconsistent. North Melbourne are improving but don’t have the talent of an AFL side. When you see the teams on paper, you have to pick the Saints in an easy win but to get any value. This game could end up being a blowout, but with both teams struggling, I can see this being a nice 5 goal win for the Saints. 

Suggested Bets: SAINTS 1-39 $2.30 ✅

GOLD COAST vs HAWTHORN

This game has moved to Saturday night thanks to covid. In what will be a tight game, the suns are a good side on the way up, and the hawks are a side that is great for 2/3 of a game but struggles to contain aside for the entire four quarters. The Hawks have players that can change the game, but they also have a lot of young kids as well. If the young forwards can get ahold of the ball in the forward 50, the hawks have more options than the suns. The suns are controlling the ball better than the hawks and will need to be stopped to win this one. Tight game, I think the Suns might win, but the 3 goal line is too much in my eyes.  

Suggested Bets: HAWKS +18.5 $ 1.85 ❌

WEST COAST vs BOMBERS

A rather easy game to find a bet in, The Eagles are unstoppable at home in Perth. The Bombers are a side that gives you a lot but is found wanting. They are never really out of a game & they have a lot of good stats but are still sitting outside the top 8. They need to start beating sides above them & take advantage of the good ball play. The Bombers won’t be able to stop the Eagles tall forwards, but if they can get the first hand to the ball, they might be able to limit them.

 Suggested Bets: WEST COAST -15.5 $ 1.60 ❌

RICHMOND vs CROWS 

Another game that had to be moved thanks to Victoria’s covid outbreak. The Tigers play the Crows at Giants stadium. The Tigers will be looking to get back on the winner’s list after a loss last Friday night against the lions while the Crows knocked off the undefeated Dees in a shock. The Tigers need to stop Tex Walker. The Demons couldn’t do that, but they don’t have a team defence like the tigers. With that in mind, Tom Lynch needs to step up as he has done nothing all year, and it is starting to hurt the tigers. 

Suggested Bets: TIGERS 1-39 $2.10 ✅

SWANS vs CARLTON

 The Swans are a side that you can’t sleep on. They are always in the game. They have had 5 games where the result has been within two goals. They fight for every ball and have good foot skills. Carlton is about a year behind being that type of side. They have players that are showing they could take the next step soon. Welsh is one of these players, and this season, he has been just as good, if not better, than Cripps. I like the Swans in this one at home & watch for Buddy to kick a nice bag full for the Bloods.

Suggested Bets: SWANS 1-39 $ 2.10 ✅

PORT vs FREO   

The Last game of the round is between the Power & Dockers. The Power is a very slow starting side, but in this game, I expect them to lead from the front & take control of the game from the start. The Power will need to control the midfield as the dockers have the second most marks inside 50. so if they get first hands on the ball and get it to their forwards, this game could be a lot hard of a game for the Power. I still expect the Power to win & if they get first hand on the ball, it could be a big win for them. 

Suggested Bets: PORT POWER -15.5 $ 1.50 ✅

 

AFL Betting Tips Round 10 Preview & Tips:

BRISBANE vs RICHMOND   

Round 10 starts with a great game. In the battle of the big cats, the Lions take on the Tigers. The Lions are heavy favourites thanks to a five-game winning streak, while the Tigers have gone win Lost for the last few games. You would be stupid to count the Tigers out of this one. But with this game being at the GABBA im sticking with the Lions 

Suggested Bets: LIONS 1-39 $ 2.10

CARLTON vs HAWTHORN

Last week, the hawks led to the winless Kangaroos in Tasmania & after that game, it is hard to think they can turn it around this week against the Blues. The Blues have many tall forwards just like the Hawks, but with the way both teams move the ball, if this game is played in anything but perfect conditions, it can be a low scoring affair. Im happy to take that chance   

Suggested Bets: CARLTON 1-39/ UND 173.5 $3.70 

GEELONG vs GOLD COAST  

What could be a worse thing for a side that is used to warm sunny conditions besides a cold Saturday afternoon game in Geelong? The Cats are starting to look like a side that could win the Flag this year. With Jeremy Cameron up forward-firing & Tom Hawkins & a powerful midfield, they are always hard to stop. The Suns, on the other hand, need to find a different way to goal King can do it all, and they need players like Rankine to step up.

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 25+ $1.30 

CROWS vs MELBOURNE 

Another Game that can look a little one-sided is the match between the Crows & Demons. The Demons are a funny side. They are undefeated but haven’t been in a high scoring shoot out game this year. Players like Bayley Fritsch kick multiple goals each week. If the Demons stop Tex walker, it’s hard to see how they can score a winning score. That is why the over-under is a good bet in this game

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE Under 170.5 $2.10

WESTERN BULLDOGS vs ST KILDA

Coming off the high of beating the Power in SA, the Bulldogs take on the Saints who struggled to score in a tough game against the Cats. What really stood out last week was the Bulldogs attack on the ball & player. They Tackled so well last week it really changed the style of football the Power had to play. With great movement by foot 7 hand, they become a tough team to make a turn over the ball. This is the way they need to play & if they can continue to play this way, they could end up a top 4 team.

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS -15.5 $ 1.55

FREO vs SYDNEY

The Other game on Saturday night is between the Docker & Swans. Freo is a tough side to take on at home, but that task of beating them on home turf can be done but the surprise pack of this year the Swans. Franklin will love being back in WA, so watch for him to have a big game. The Dockers struggle to make an impact without Fyfe taking over the game. Rory Lobb is getting back in form, but the side is still made up of players that need more game time to become impact players 

Suggested Bets: SYDNEY 1-39 $ 2.10

GWS vs WEST COAST 

The first game Sunday is a 50/50 game in the eyes of the bookies. Personally, I really like this game & I think there is a lot of value to be had here with the GWS. GWS playing at home with a forward line that is firing can put a stop to the west coast eagles. The Eagles have only defeated the Hawks away from home this year. With that being said, I like the way the Eagles play & I think this game can be the match of the round.

Suggested Bets: GWS 1-39 $2.50

COLLINGWOOD vs PORT POWER

 What a game this can be with a little more build-up. The Battle of the Magpies, the Black and White. Eddie Vs Koshie, the only way this game can be more interesting is if every port fan is wearing the prison bars jumper to the game. Collingwood is not half the side the Power is this year, but last week the Power was left looking foolish against the Bulldogs. They were shown how to stop them but can Collingwood play that type of game with the players they have. I don’t think so. so im with Port & Koshie on this one.

Suggested Bets: PORT POWER 1-39 $ 2.10

ESSENDON vs KANGAROOS  

The Last game of the round is between the Bombers & Roos. The Roos finally got a win on the board after coming from behind against the Hawks. They were great in the second half & the hawks were really poor. Will that pump them up to play the same style of footy against the Bombers? Is the real question, or will it be just a flash in the pan. The Bombers just got over the line last week against Freo, so this game could be a way for them to move up the ladder & if they want to improve as a side, they need to win these games. As I said last week, they are a good side stats-wise, so you have to follow what your numbers tell you.

Suggested Bets: BOMBERS $ 1.40

 

AFL Betting Tips Round 9 Preview & Tips:

ST KILDA vs GEELONG   

Round 9 begins with the Cats & Saints on Friday night. Both sides are coming off wins. Geelong made a statement last week with a fantastic 2nd half that allowed them to defeat the Tigers by over ten goals. The Saints just got over the line against the Suns in a low scoring game. With this game being played at Marvel Stadium, this ground is for high scoring games & with both sides with good key forwards, watch for one of them to kick a bag full.

Suggested Bets: GEELONG 1-39 $ 2.10

SYDNEY vs COLLINGWOOD

The Swans are the real deal in my eyes. I have seen the light & honestly think this is a side that can keep putting in 4 quarter efforts that most other teams can’t. The swans are a great team all over the park. The Magpies finally got the win they required defeating the Kangaroos. Collingwood has always been a defensive-minded side. They have struggled in attack for years. With the team defence of the swans on a small ground, this should continue. I think the total game score is very high at 170.5 & with the swans playing so well, I have to go with them.  

Suggested Bets: SWANS/ UND 170.5 $2.70

HAWTHORN vs KANGAROOS  

One of the hawks Tasmania game is against the other side with Tassie home matches in North Melbourne. Both sides have outstanding records in tassie. The Hawks are a side on the improve with some good young players and a very tall young forward line. The Kangaroos are still looking to get their first win. With a loss last week to the 16th placed Collingwood, if they cant beat the 17th placed Hawks this week, they might not get a win all year. Hawthorns midfield should be two strong in this one & almost hand over the wooden spoon to the hapless Roos.

Suggested Bets: HAWKS 1-39 $2.10

GOLD COAST vs BRISBANE

The Battle for Queensland will be a much better game than it has been in years. The Gold coast suns are a hard-running side that uses the ball well. This has helped them remain in games all year. This week they take on the Lions off a short week. The lions stopped in the final stages of their game against the Dockers. The Lions are building towards a big second half of the year, and with the passion & better players finding form, they will win this game, control the ball & limit the effects of the Gold Coast key forwards.

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE -15.5  $1.70

RICHMOND vs GWS

A great game on Saturday night. The Tigers take on the GWS at Marvel. GWS is one of the form teams in the AFL right now, thanks to an outstanding month from Toby Greene. The Tigers looked tired against the cats last week & with trouble finding a couple of their players at a nightclub during last week, they need to put in a significant effort this week. Tom Lynch has been struggling all year and looking like a lazy forward. He will be hoping for a big game & with both sides good at fast-moving balls, this could become a shoot out.

Suggested Bets: RICHMOND OVER 161.5 $ 2.75

PORT POWER vs BULLDOGS

The Other game Saturday night is between the Power & Bulldogs. After a dominant win in the derby last week, the Power will have a struggle with the bulldogs. Surprisingly the bulldogs have a better scoring average of the two sides, but with the record, the Power has at home, it will be an uphill battle to stop this side. The Bulldogs strength is the number of players they have playing each week consistently. The Depth of talent on both sides is very long & it wouldn’t surprise me if this is a finals game we see deep in September.

Suggested Bets: PORT POWER $ 1.65

ESSENDON vs FREMANTLE 

The first game on Sunday this week is very much a 50/50 game between the Dockers & Bombers. Both sides are sitting the bottom half of the ladder, but when you look at the stats, the Bombers have been playing very well. They have scored the second-most point of any team in the league, but they have also conceded over 700 points this year. The Dockers are a better defensive side, but they struggle in attack. with this game being played in Melbourne, I have sided with the Bombers in a high scoring game

Suggested Bets: ESSENDON $1.70

CARLTON vs MELBOURNE

A Massive game for a Sunday between the Dees & Carlton. The Blues have been putting together some good games against some great teams, but they always have a low spell of around 20 mins that have cost them victory. The Dees don’t have that problem at all. They are the form side of the competition. With many different ways to goal, they are a hard team to stop. I cant see the Blues stopping them this week, but if this is a very wet game as expected, it could be a shallow scoring game. 

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE under 163 $ 2.40

WEST COAST vs CROWS 

The Last game of the round is a one-sided affair between the West Coast & the Crows. West coast finally got their first win of the year on the road against the Hawks. If they didn’t beat the hawks, it would have been crazy to think of them as a premiership contender. The Crows went down in the derby to a much stronger Port Power. The eagles are a great side at home, and it’s very easy to pick them in an easy win against a bottom four side.

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST -24.5 $1.40

 

AFL Betting Tips Round 8 Preview & Tips:

RICHMOND vs GEELONG

Round 8 starts off with a grand final replay with the Cats & Tigers. Geelong will be looking to make a statement as they haven’t been playing good football recently & the tigers have had their number the last few times they have played each other. With both sides filled with Colemen medalist. It will be who can stop the ball from coming into the forward line & control the middle of the ground. With Dustin Martin back, the Tigers, with their faster ball movement, should be able to handle this game in what should be one of the games of the year.  

Suggested Bets: TIGERS 1-39 $ 2.10

GWS vs ESSENDON 

GWS have turned a corner in the last month & they will be looking to continue that form when they take on Essendon. The Bombers went down to Carlton on Sunday; with that being said, they have one less day to get ready for this game. Both sides have high disposal midfield & play their best football when the small forwards are on, son. Toby Greene has been unstoppable the last month. This has scored him a new deal with the GWS & helped his side climb the ladder to eye off a spot in the 8.  

Suggested Bets: GWS/ GREENE 2+ GOALS $1.70

GOLD COAST vs ST KILDA  

One of the biggest mysteries about this round is how this game will end up. The Suns were fantastic, beating the Magpies at the MCG, then you have the saints, who played a more exciting style of football with a lot more freedom & it resulted in a massive win against the Hawks. With the 2 King Twins kicking goals for both sides, it will take a lot of stopping from both back lines to make sure they don’t take the 5-6 marks inside 50 they both get each game. I really liked the way the saints played, and with the wide-open spaces of Metricon I think they are the value as the outsider, but the safest play is that it will be a close game.

Suggested Bets: EITHER TEAM UNDER 24.5 $1.80

NORTH MELBOURNE vs COLLINGWOOD

The Battle for the wooden spoon. The two sides with the worst form & the biggest at stake play each other. If Collingwood loses this game, it could be over for Buckley at the end of the year. It will finally make Collingwood realise that they don’t have the talent on the field they believe they have. The Kangaroos, on the other hand, know they have a list that is undermanned, but they are starting to show some improvement like last week against the Dees. The Roos were in that game for a long time until the Dees ran over the top of them. They still lost that game by over five goals which are very worrying. Collingwood will need to find out how they are going to kick a winning score. They have struggled up forwards for the last couple of years, but they may have enough firepower to get over the line here. 

Suggested Bets: COLLINGWOOD 1-39  $ 2.10

MELBOURNE vs SYDNEY

Top of the table, Melbourne takes on the surprise packet of the season so far in the fourth-placed Sydney swans. The Swans have developed a style of football that gets the whole side to place as one with real spirit & attack on the ball. A midfield always seems to be fighting to the last minute of the game, like what happened last week against the Cats. At the same time, Melbourne appears to win conformable every week. They have played some outstanding teams and got the W each time & I think it will continue this weekend as well.

Suggested Bets: MELBOURNE 1-39 $ 2.15

PORT POWER vs CROWS

The South Australian Derby is always one of the highlights of the AFL year. This year I would think of thought it was a slam dunk win for Port, but after last weeks game, they were very disappointing against the Lions in Brisbane. The Crows have been just as bad the last two weeks giving up a big lead against the hawks & going down by over ten goals against the improving GWS. They are starting to look tired & with sides now double teaming Tex Walker, the Crows need to find a new way to kick goals. This is why we have to settle with the Power to win this one. I expect Dixon to kick a bag full in this game as the ball will be coming in thick and fast.

Suggested Bets: PORT POWER 25+ $ 1.65

HAWTHORN vs WEST COAST

After a really disappointing game last week where the saints played the Hawks at times. The Hawks will be stepping up against The Eagles in Victoria. As I say every second week, the Eagles are a lot worst of the side in Victoria than what they are if this game was in WA. The Eagles haven’t fired a shot when they have come over here to play, and that is the only thing stopping them from being a real finals teams. That being said the firepower they have up forward & with the game being played at the MCG it will make it a little bit easier for them this time around.   

Suggested Bets: WEST COAST $1.50

CARLTON vs BULLDOGS

A Massive game for a Sunday afternoon. The Bulldogs suffered their first loss against the Tigers last week. They put up a great effort and showed that they would be a force for the rest of the year. The Blues dug deep and won against the Bombers thanks to some key forwards taking marks when it mattered & excellent running performance in the midfield from Welsh, who is almost becoming the blues most crucial player. The Blues will need to take it up another level against the bulldogs, but the bulldogs at Marvel Stadium are no easy beats & should win this game. 

Suggested Bets: BULLDOGS $ 1.40

BRISBANE vs FREO 

The Last game of the round is the Lions against the Dockers at the GABBA. The Dockers travelling is a lot like the Eagles travelling you. They are on a different side & with the record the Lions’ record at the Gabba, this looks like an easy tip for the last game. This doesn’t even mention that the Lions are finally hitting form, and the way they played last week against the Power was a sign of better things to come. Charlie Cameron is starting to gain some fitness, so look for him to kick a few more goals this weekend.  

Suggested Bets: BRISBANE -24.5 $ 1.60
