AFL Grand Final Preview

By |

Collingwood Magpies v Brisbane Lions (Saturday Afternoon) Collingwood and Brisbane will meet in the AFL Grand Final at the MCG on Saturday afternoon. They finished one, two on the AFL ladder at seasons end so it comes as no surprise to see both teams progress through to the last Saturday in September. They met twice during the year.  And

AFL Finals Week 3

By |

Collingwood Magpies v Greater Western Sydney Giants  (Friday Night) When Collingwood made it through to the preliminary final on the back of beating Melbourne two weeks ago they looked to have one hand on the premiership cup.  They were on the easier side of the draw or so we thought.  Enter the Giants.  They just continue to get better.

AFL Finals Week 2

By |

Port Adelaide Power v Greater Western Sydney Giants (Saturday Night) Port weren’t as bad as the scoreboard suggests last week.  They had periods where they were on top of the Lions.  Inaccuracy in front of goals hurt them before the Lions kicked away late.  They are a different beast back at home although are under pressure not to exit

AFL Finals Week 1

By |

Collingwood Magpies v Melbourne Demons (Thursday Night) Wet weather could play a key role in the first of the qualifying finals between Melbourne and Collingwood at the MCG on Thursday night.  At the time of writing (Tuesday evening) 1 to 4mm is forecast. Despite Collingwood finishing at the top of the home and away ladder, their finish to the

AFL Round 24

By |

The last round before finals and to my eye there appears four good things. Collingwood v Essendon – Collingwood are set to get a few players back and will be keen to head into finals with a win against old enemy Essendon who have simply run out of steam.  They were deplorable against the Giants last week. North Melbourne

AFL Round 22

By |

Collingwood Magpies v Geelong Cats (Friday Afternoon) For the reigning premiers Geelong this is almost do or die if they are to play finals footy in 2023.  Collingwood have a top 2 spot sewn up but will be looking for a confidence booster coming off two losses.  I’m pretty keen on Collingwood here despite the loss of star youngster

AFL Round 17

By |

Just the one bet for me this week and it comes in the form of a multi. Geelong v North Melbourne - Geelong will beat North Melbourne in Geelong, its just a question of by how much.  They are short but a nice booster for the multi. GWS v Hawthorn – GWS have hit form winning four of their

AFL Round 16

By |

Adelaide Crows v North Melbourne Kangaroos (Saturday Afternoon) Seventeenth placed North Melbourne are coming off the bye which has proven most troublesome for all the teams who have done it so far in 2023.  Adelaide on the other hand are coming off a narrow loss against premiership favourites Collingwood at the MCG.  The Crows love belting sides at home

AFL Round 15 2023

By |

Geelong Cats v Melbourne Demons (Thursday Night) The early betting has been interesting in this game.  To my surprise Geelong opened a clear favourite when markets went up last week.  Melbourne was subsequently backed into favourite however with the news dropping yesterday that Clayton Oliver will miss again for the Dees the market has swung back to make the

AFL Round 14 2023

By |

Brisbane Lions v Sydney Swans (Friday Night) The Swans travel to Brisbane to face the Lions under the Friday night lights and unfortunately for last years grand finalists they do not look set to regain any players from a lengthy injury list.  The Lions are coming off two losses.  They clearly did not come with the right attitude against

AFL Round 13 2023

By |

Sydney Swans v St Kilda Saints (Thursday Night) It’s great to see Thursday night footy back and we kick off with an interesting clash between the Swans and the Saints. This is an important game for both sides. After a fast start to season 2023 the Saints have looked shaky over the last month with two bad losses coming

AFL Round 11 2023

By |

Gold Coast Suns v Adelaide Crows (Saturday Night) This is an interesting clash up in Darwin on Saturday night between two sides on the way up. The Crows took another big scalp at home last week in the form of the Brisbane Lions, whilst the Suns secured four points over the inform Bulldogs. Its not always as simple as

AFL Round 11 2023

By |

Another tricky week in the AFL but we have found three bets. Melbourne Demons v Fremantle Dockers (Saturday Afternoon) This is an interesting contest at the MCG on Saturday afternoon.  After a very slow start to 2023 the Dockers are on a roll.  They have won their last three including a big win over Geelong last week in Perth.

AFL Round 10 2023

By |

Richmond Tigers v Essendon Bombers (Saturday Night) The fortunes of these two sides have changed significantly over the last few weeks.  Essendon started the year well but have been hit hard by injuries and their young list is beginning to struggle.  Richmond on the other hand were going terribly earlier in the year but have got some key personnel

AFL Round 9 2023

By |

Western Bulldogs v Carlton Blues (Sunday) The Western Bulldogs lose Adam Treloar with a hamstring injury but I’m surprised they aren’t clear favourites here. Their recent form reads very well, winning five of their last six. The only loss came against the Power in Adelaide, a game they were in for much of the night. Carlton on the other

AFL Round 8 2023

By |

Gold Coast Suns v Melbourne Demons (Saturday Twilight) Unsurprisingly Melbourne dominates the recent record between these two sides.  The Suns will take confidence from an away win over the struggling Tigers last week but are still with out Touk Miller and face a Melbourne side starting to hit their straps.  Won’t be surprised to see the Suns take it

AFL Round 7 2023

By |

Small betting week this week - looks a really tricky round! Sydney Swans v Greater Western Giants (Sydney Night) GWS kept fighting and did well to avoid a blow out in the end against Brisbane last week.  Sydney were badly beaten in their grand final rematch with Geelong at Geelong.  Both sides have a number of key injuries at

AFL Round 6 2023

By |

I'm keen to bet into two games this week. Fremantle Dockers v Western Bulldogs (Friday Night) This is a really interesting clash to start round 6 in the West on Friday night.  Whilst there is still a lot of footy to be played in season 23 I feel like this is almost a must win for either of these

1304, 2023

AFL Round 5 2023

By |

Adelaide Crows v Carlton Blues (Thursday Night) A cracking match to start off the inaugural gather round.  The big news during the week was that Harry McKay had his one match suspension over turned by the tribunal and is free to play.  The Blues also get Sam Walsh back for the first time this season – a significant in.

AFL Round 4 2023

By |

Adelaide Crows v Fremantle Dockers (Saturday Afternoon) This presents as an interesting contest on Saturday afternoon at the Adelaide Oval.  Fremantle made a notable change to their game plan last week opting to move the ball a lot faster than they had done in rounds 1 and 2, however I can’t help but think the

AFL Round 3 2023

By |

Richmond Tigers v Collingwood Magpies (Thursday Night) They are expecting a monster crowd on Friday night when the two biggest clubs in the land meet at the MCG.  Collingwood are now outright premiership favourites following a 2&0 start and a dismantling of the Power by 10 goals at home last week.  The Tigers were too

AFL Round 2 2023

By |

Carlton Blues v Geelong Cats (Thursday Night) Another cracking game to get us underway in round 2.  Geelong were in front for much of the night in round 1 but couldn’t hold off an insatiable Collingwood who ran over the top of the reigning premiers with a 5 goal to 1 final quarter.   The Blues
