Carlton vs Brisbane

Friday, May 5, 2023

7:50 PM @ Marvel Stadium

After a thorough analysis of the pre-match information and individual player stats, it’s apparent that Carlton is poised to take the win over Brisbane in this intense Round 8 battle.

Carlton’s recent form has been exceptional, especially after their massive win over West Coast.

Additionally, the Blues have a number of key players, such as Charlie Curnow, Sam Docherty, and Patrick Cripps, all in top form.

Although Brisbane boasts a solid record against Carlton and Lachie Neale’s performance can’t be ignored, Carlton’s home-ground advantage at Marvel Stadium and their recent momentum make them the favourites.

Expect a thrilling match with Carlton coming out on top with a final score of 92-85.

Betting Tip: Blues

Suggested Bet: Carlton WINNING MARGIN 1-39


Richmond vs West Coast

Saturday, May 6, 2023

1:45 PM @ MCG

In this bottom-of-the-ladder clash between Richmond and West Coast at the MCG, it’s evident that Richmond will emerge victorious.

Despite their current 16th position, the Tigers have a strong record against the Eagles, with recent victories in Round 7, 2022 and at the MCG.

West Coast, on the other hand, is struggling with a string of 11 consecutive interstate losses.

Players like Tim Taranto, Jayden Short, and Jack Riewoldt are in fine form for Richmond, while West Coast’s Andrew Gaff and Tim Kelly are putting up commendable performances.

However, with the Eagles’ woeful interstate record and Richmond’s historical dominance, the Tigers should secure a win.

Expect a high-scoring affair with Richmond taking the win at 105-78, giving their fans a much-needed boost in morale during this difficult season.

Betting Tip: Tigers

Suggested Bet: LINE – WEST COAST EAGLES (+39.5)


Geelong vs Adelaide

Saturday, May 6, 2023

2:10 PM @ GMHBA Stadium

Geelong’s impressive form, coupled with their historical dominance at GMHBA Stadium, makes them the clear favourites in the upcoming clash against Adelaide.

The Cats have an impressive winning streak, averaging 131.3 points while conceding just 68.8 across their last four games.

Key players like Tom Hawkins, Jeremy Cameron, and Patrick Dangerfield have been in exceptional form, which will surely trouble the Crows.

On the other hand, Adelaide has a poor record at Kardinia Park, losing 12 straight games.

Despite players like Rory Laird and Ben Keays performing well, it’s unlikely they can overcome the dominant Cats on their home ground.

Expect Geelong to continue their winning streak, taking this match with a convincing final score of 110-78, further establishing their dominance at GMHBA Stadium.

Betting Tip: Cats

Suggested Bet: TOTAL POINTS OVER 165.5


Gold Coast vs Melbourne

Saturday, May 6, 2023

4:35 PM @ Heritage Bank Stadium

In this intriguing battle between Gold Coast and Melbourne, the Demons’ current form and historical record against the Suns make them the favourites.

Melbourne boasts a 10-game winning streak against Gold Coast and has seen stellar performances from players like Christian Petracca, Clayton Oliver, and Bayley Fritsch.

Gold Coast, however, shouldn’t be underestimated.

With a 7-3 record in their last 10 matches against interstate clubs at Carrara and players like Noah Anderson and Ben King in fine form, they will put up a tough fight.

Nevertheless, Melbourne’s strength and consistency against top-eight opponents will give them the edge.

Expect a competitive and high-scoring game, with Melbourne securing their 11th consecutive victory over Gold Coast with a final score of 94-81.

Betting Tip: Demons

Suggested Bet: Melbourne WINNING MARGIN 1-39


GWS Giants vs Bulldogs

Saturday, May 6, 2023

7:25 PM @ Manuka Oval

The clash between GWS and the Western Bulldogs at Manuka Oval promises to be a thrilling encounter.

The Bulldogs’ recent form, winning four of their last five matches and holding a four-game winning streak against the Giants, suggests they’ll come out on top in this contest.

With stellar performances from players like Aaron Naughton, Jack Macrae, and Marcus Bontempelli, the Dogs are a force to be reckoned with.

GWS, however, showed their fighting spirit in their recent win against Sydney and have Toby Greene and Stephen Coniglio in fine form.

Despite their poor record at Manuka Oval and night matches, they’ll give the Bulldogs a tough challenge.

Expect a high-scoring game, with the second quarter being the most explosive.

Ultimately, the Western Bulldogs will triumph over GWS, securing a 95-80 victory and extending their winning streak against the Giants to five.

Betting Tip: Bulldogs

Suggested Bet: Bulldogs WINNING MARGIN 1-39


Fremantle vs Hawthorn

Saturday, May 6, 2023

7:30 PM @ Optus Stadium

Fremantle and Hawthorn, both struggling this season, will go head-to-head at Optus Stadium on Saturday evening.

Despite their 2-5 record, Fremantle should have the upper hand against the Hawks, who are currently on a four-match losing streak.

The Dockers have had their own setbacks, but their recent victory over Hawthorn in 2022 gives them an edge in this matchup.

The Hawks have been more competitive in recent games, but Fremantle has standout players like Andrew Brayshaw, Michael Walters, and Caleb Serong, who can turn the tide in their favour.

Meanwhile, Hawthorn’s Jaeger O’Meara and Chad Wingard will need to be at their best to challenge the Dockers.

In this clash, expect a low-scoring game with Fremantle emerging victorious.

I predict a final score of 89-64, with the Dockers breaking their losing streak and boosting their morale for the rest of the season.

Betting Tip: Dockers

Suggested Bet: TOTAL PONTS – UNDER 166.5


Port Adelaide vs Essendon

Sunday, May 7, 2023

1:10 PM @ Adelaide Oval

Port Adelaide and Essendon will clash at Adelaide Oval on Sunday, and the stakes are high for both teams.

The Power is on a roll with four consecutive wins, cementing themselves as top-four contenders.

Meanwhile, Essendon is keen to bounce back after two recent losses.

The Bombers have struggled at the MCG, but their away record is more promising, making this an interesting encounter.

However, Port Adelaide has a strong track record against Essendon, winning their last five meetings.

Port’s players like Travis Boak, Ollie Wines, and Charlie Dixon have consistently delivered in their matches against the Bombers, while Essendon’s Darcy Parish and Andrew McGrath will need to step up to put up a strong fight.

Considering the stats and recent form, Port Adelaide should come out on top in a closely contested match.

I predict a final score of 95-80, with the Power continuing their winning streak and further solidifying their position as a formidable force this season.

Betting Tip: Power

Suggested Bet: Power WINNING MARGIN 1-39


Collingwood vs Sydney

Sunday, May 7, 2023

3:20 PM @ MCG

In a highly anticipated rematch of the 2022 Preliminary Final, Collingwood and Sydney will battle it out at the MCG on Sunday.

The Magpies, currently topping the ladder with a 6-1 record, are on a mission to secure their premiership spot.

Meanwhile, Sydney has had a disappointing start to the season with a 3-4 record and four losses in their last five matches.

The return of Scott Pendlebury from injury is a massive boost for the Pies, who already have impressive performers like Josh and Nick Daicos.

With Collingwood’s 14 out of 15 wins at the MCG, they are set to maintain their dominance.

On the other hand, Sydney’s Lance Franklin and Callum Mills have consistently shown strong performances against Collingwood.

However, the Swans’ recent form might not be enough to outshine the Magpies this time.

Expect Collingwood to triumph over Sydney in a thrilling match, with a final score of 98-77.

The Magpies will continue their stellar run, while Sydney will be left searching for answers to turn their season around.

Betting Tip: Magpies

Suggested Bet: Collingwood HEAD-to-HEAD


North Melbourne vs St Kilda

Sunday, May 7, 2023

4:40 PM @ Marvel Stadium

St Kilda and North Melbourne clash at Marvel Stadium on Sunday, with the two teams experiencing vastly different seasons.

The Saints boast a solid 5-2 record, while the Kangaroos struggle with a five-match losing streak, succumbing to massive margins in their recent losses.

The Saints’ recent form and strong players like Rowan Marshall and Jack Sinclair make them clear favourites for this match.

St Kilda’s impressive record of covering the line in seven of their last eight matches further supports their dominance.

With North Melbourne’s bleak history against top-four opponents, it’s hard to see them turning their fortunes around this time.

Expect Mitchito Owens to continue his goal-scoring streak for St Kilda, while Cameron Zurhaar might provide some highlights for the Roos.

However, it won’t be enough for North Melbourne to overcome the Saints.

St Kilda will convincingly defeat North Melbourne with a final score of 100-64, cementing their status as genuine contenders this season, while the Kangaroos will be left to pick up the pieces and reevaluate their strategy.

Betting Tip: Saints

Suggested Bet: Saints WINNING MARGIN 1-39
