There could be a couple blow outs this round and I’m tipping at least one upset. Don’t forget Ladbrokes are offering a $2 line for Friday’s match. Now, let’s get down to it.
Brisbane Lions ($1.40) VS Richmond ($3) – Gabba
The Lions have really strung some form together and are looking for their sixth straight win. Richmond are still down on troops and are faced with the daunting task of trying to topple the Lions at home.
Suggested Bet – Brisbane Lions -16.5 @ $2
Carlton ($1.30) VS Hawthorn ($3.60) – MCG
Both these teams will be desperate for a win and one of them will be successful, thanks scoop…
Considering how poor both teams have been at certain stages throughout the season I am inclined to take Hawthorn with the start.
Suggested Bet – Hawthorn +20.5 @ $1.90
Geelong Cats ($1.06) VS Gold Coast Suns ($9.25) – GMHBA Stadium
Gold Coast have a particularly poor record playing here, having lost their last six at this venue by a massive average margin of 78.3 points. This could get ugly.
Suggested Bet – Geelong Cats -45.5 @ $1.90
Adelaide Crows ($5) VS Melbourne ($1.18) – Adelaide Oval
Adelaide might have dropped to their fifth straight loss last round and face an unbeaten Melbourne side, but I am giving them a good chance of covering the line at home.
Suggested Bet – Adelaide Crows +30.5 @ $1.90
Western Bulldogs ($1.28) VS St Kilda ($3.75) – Marvel Stadium
The Western Bulldogs remain one of the favourites to win the flag and if they are going to win the comp, they really need to be beating St Kilda, and well.
Suggested Bet – Western Bulldogs -24.5 @ $1.90
Fremantle ($1.94) VS Sydney Swans ($1.88) – Optus Stadiuml
Fremantle will be desperate to grab a win at home after consecutive losses on the road. There isn’t much between these sides, as the market suggests, but at home I fancy Fremantle can get the job done.
Suggested bet – Fremantle @ $1.94
GWS Giants ($2.30) VS West Coast Eagles ($1.62) – GIANTS Stadium
GWS will look to keep their top 8 chances alive with a win over the Eagles who will be looking to improve on their away record. At home, and showing promising signs of improvement, this looks to be a game the Giants can win.
Suggested bet – GWS Giants +8.5 @ $1.90
Collingwood ($3.35) VS Port Adelaide ($1.33) – MCG
Collingwood are really struggling (you hate to see it don’t you…) and their season could go from bad to worse here really quickly. Port Adelaide will be out to avenge their first home loss last round and get the perfect chance to do so.
Suggested bet – Port Adelaide -19.5 @ $1.90
Essendon ($1.30) VS North Melbourne ($3.60) – Marvel Stadium
Essendon have been slowly building this season and were able to get the best of Fremantle last round. North Melbourne looked gone early but rallied and were able to overcome Hawthorn to notch their first win of the season. The Bombers can be far too good.
Suggested bet – Essendon -22.5 @ $1.90
