Bulldogs vs Brisbane

Thursday, March 30, 2023

7:20 PM @ MCG

The Bulldogs will give the Brisbane Lions a fight for their money this Thursday night at Marvel Stadium. True, the Dogs have had a tough start to the season, but that will only fuel their fire. Besides, they’re playing on their home territory, and we all know how much Marvel enjoys a good brawl.

Let’s get down to business. Brisbane may have won their past five games at Marvel, but the Dogs will put an end to that run. With odds of 1.46, Brisbane is the favorite to win, but don’t count out the underdog. The Bulldogs haven’t covered the spread in their last three games, but that just means they’re due for a massive shock. And don’t forget that Brisbane’s last victory over the Dogs was at home, not at Marvel.

So, what do I think the final score will be? The Bulldogs are going to win with a score of 89-83. The game will be competitive, but the Dogs will dig deep and show the Lions what they’re made of.

Finally, don’t be misled by the odds or recent history. The Dogs will bark their way to victory on Thursday night, and we’ll all be roaring with delight. So prepare your beers, put on your red, white, and blue, and prepare to cheer on the Western Bulldogs to a hard-fought victory!

Betting Tip: Bulldogs

Suggested Bet: Bulldogs HEAD-to-HEAD


Collingwood vs Richmond

Friday, March 31, 2023

7:40 PM @ MCG

Prepare for a football frenzy! Collingwood will face Richmond in a tense encounter at the MCG on Friday night. The Magpies are coming off a huge win over Port Adelaide, led by Nick Daicos, who dominated the game. There’s no stopping them now with that kind of form.

Richmond did win their previous match against Adelaide, but they struggled to hold their lead and had to fight hard to clinch the victory. Collingwood, on the other hand, has dominated as a favorite, winning their last 11 games. At odds of 1.55, it’s apparent who the bookmakers think will win.

And let’s get back to that line. Collingwood has covered the spread in five of their last six games, and with a line of -11.5, they’re looking good. Furthermore, Collingwood has won seven of their previous eight home games by a margin of 1-39 points. That’s some significant home field advantage there.

So, what do I think the final score will be? Collingwood is going to win with a score of 93-82. It’ll be a tough contest, but the Magpies will show Richmond who’s boss.

Betting Tip: Magpies

Suggested Bet: Collingwood WINNING MARGIN 1-39


Hawthorn vs North Melbourne

Saturday, April 1, 2023

1:45 PM @ Marvel Stadium

Get ready, football aficionados, because we’re in for a real thriller this Saturday when the Hawks take on the Roos in Launceston. While Hawthorn’s season has started slowly, they will not allow North Melbourne to run all over them. The Roos have enjoyed a strong start to the season, but let’s be honest: Hawthorn is not a club to be underestimated. I’m betting on the Hawks to win by a score of 87-85. Despite their poor start, Hawthorn has won 13 of their last 14 games as the favorite, indicating that they know how to handle pressure. While North Melbourne has been strong against lower-ranked clubs, they have struggled in the past against the Hawks, losing twice last year. With players like Tom Mitchell and Jack Gunston leading the way, I’m convinced the Hawks will win. It’ll be a close game, but the Hawks will come out on top, mark my words.

Betting Tip: Hawks

Suggested Bet: Hawthorn HEAD-to-HEAD


GWS Giants vs Carlton

Saturday, April 1, 2023

4:35 PM @ Adelaide Oval

This weekend, Carlton takes on Greater Western Sydney at GIANTS Stadium in a must-see match! The Blues are coming off a convincing win over Geelong, with Charlie Curnow booting five goals and Adam Saad making a significant contribution from half-back. The Giants, on the other side, were defeated by the Eagles in Perth, despite great efforts from Toby Greene and Stephen Coniglio.

But here’s the thing: GWS has lost their previous ten games against clubs in the top eight, while Carlton has covered the line in four of their last five. Furthermore, the Blues have a strong track record when Curnow scores four or more goals, and they have won their last two games versus the Giants.

I predict that Carlton will defeat GWS by a score of 85-80. The Blues have been in great form recently, and I think they’ll keep it up this weekend. Additionally, with the Giants failing against top teams, things are looking up for Carlton. Get your cobbers and tune in for what will undoubtedly be a bloody excellent contest!

Betting Tip: Carlton

Suggested Bet: Carlton HEAD-TO-HEAD


St Kilda vs Essendon

Saturday, April 1, 2023

7:25 PM @ MCG

Prepare for a great game of football, everyone! St Kilda will face Essendon in what promises to be an exciting game at the G. St Kilda is celebrating its 150th anniversary, and the Saints are riding high following great wins over Fremantle and the Bulldogs despite missing some important players. Essendon, on the other hand, has been battling with injuries of their own, but it hasn’t stopped them from thrashing Gold Coast and Hawthorn in the first round.

The Saints, on the other hand, have a grudge against the Bombers after losing to them last season, and I expect them to come out firing on all cylinders. Even if Jack Steele is ruled out, the Saints have enough of firepower in their ranks, and their excellent form will see them defeat Essendon. I anticipate a St Kilda victory by a score of 87-77.

The Saints have covered the line in eight of their last ten games as a favorite, so the odds are in their favor. Likewise, Essendon has struggled at the MCG at night, losing eight of their last nine games. Furthermore, seven of St Kilda’s previous eight matches have gone UNDER the total match points line, so I don’t anticipate a high-scoring battle.

In short, the Saints have been playing some fantastic football recently, and I believe they will extend their winning streak against Essendon. Be ready for a wild game, people!

Betting Tip: Saints

Suggested Bet: St Kilda WINNING MARGIN 1-39


Port Adelaide vs Adelaide

Saturday, April 1, 2023

8:00 PM @ Heritage Bank Stadium

The Adelaide Oval is going to be lit up for the Adelaide showdown! Port Adelaide may have been humiliated by Collingwood last week, but don’t forget how they destroyed the Lions in the first round. Adelaide, on the other hand, is still nursing its wounds following a loss to Richmond in which they fought hard in the second half. Rory Laird was a star, but will he be able to hold his own against Port’s midfield? Last year, these two clubs split their encounters, but Port has won five of their past six versus the Crows, making them the favourites for this match. The Power have been a steady team for punters, and I don’t believe the Crows have enough firepower to finish the job. My prediction is that Port Adelaide will win easily, with the final score being 99-82. So get a cold one, settle in, and prepare to watch some football!

Betting Tip: Power

Suggested Bet: Port Adelaide WINNING MARGIN 1-39


Gold Coast vs Geelong

Sunday, April 2, 2023

1:10 PM @ Giants Stadium

Football fans, take note! In their forthcoming match at Heritage Bank Stadium, Geelong must show the Suns who’s boss. Geelong has won six of their previous seven games against Gold Coast. They’re the clear favorites to win, and the bookies appear to agree, with odds of 1.38. The Suns have a history of covering the line against reigning premiers, but Geelong’s firepower is too much for them to handle. Geelong’s previous eight matches have been high-scoring affairs, and given Gold Coast’s knack for scoring in the third quarter, we can expect some major action after half-time. I predict a final score of 96-81 in favour of Geelong. So grab a tinny, slap some snags on the grill, and get ready for a ripper of a match!

Betting Tip: Cats

Suggested Bet: Geelong OVER 170.5


Melbourne vs Sydney

Sunday, April 2, 2023

3:20 PM @ MCG

It’s time for a slugfest between Melbourne and Sydney. Despite being the underdog, Sydney has a strong record versus Melbourne, covering the spread in nine of their previous 10 games. Nonetheless, the underdog has won six of the last seven meetings between these two teams, so don’t write off Melbourne just yet. Not to mention that Melbourne is the incumbent champion, thus they have the experience and expertise to pull off a triumph. The line for Sydney is +5.5, but I believe Melbourne will cover and win with a score of 84-83. And if history repeats itself, we could be in for another low-scoring affair, with seven of the previous eight MCG contests ending UNDER the total match points line. So sit back, pop open a cold one, and prepare for a nail-biter between two determined competitors.

Betting Tip: Demons

Suggested Bet: Melbourne HEAD-TO-HEAD


Fremantle vs West Coast

Sunday, April 2, 2023

4:40 PM @ Marvel Stadium

Well, well, well, it’s derby time in Perth, and the Dockers take on the Eagles in what promises to be an exciting contest. Don’t get me wrong, the Eagles have been a formidable club in the past, but with only two wins in their last 20 matches, it’s difficult to see them winning this one. On the other hand, the Dockers have covered the line in their past eight April contests, and with a decent home record, things are looking up for Freo. True, they’ve lost the opening quarter in five of their last six games, but they’ve got what it takes to come back and win. Furthermore, with each of their previous five home games ending UNDER the total match points line, we could be in for a grind. Thus, overall, I’m picking the Dockers to win by a score of 87-69.

Betting Tip: Dockers

Suggested Bet: Fremantle WINNING MARGIN 1-39
