AFL Round 10 Tips
7:50pm Carlton Blues vs Sydney Swans @ Marvel Stadium
The Carlton Blues were far too good for the GWS Giants last week, but they face a difficult test against the Sydney Swans on Friday.
Sydney was an impressive winner over Essendon and the Swans are making progress this season, but we like what Carlton is doing.
It has momentum and bookmakers have the Blues as early favourites.
Betting tip: Carlton Blues @ $1.81 Bet @ PlayUp
Blues by 6
1:45pm Geelong Cats vs Port Adelaide Power @ GMHBA Stadium
Geelong couldn’t muster much against the St Kilda Saints last week, so it needs to bounce back against the Port Adelaide Power.
The Cats didn’t take their chances and were inaccurate, but there is confidence in betting markets against the Power, who took care of business against the Kangaroos last week.
We think the Cats get back to their winning ways but the margin of 20.5 points is too high. The Power should play well enough to cover the spread.
Betting tip: Port Adelaide Power +20.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
Cats by 8
1:45pm Western Bulldogs vs Gold Coast Suns @ Mars Stadium
The Western Bulldogs got back to their best with a comfortable win over the Magpies but the Gold Coast Suns shouldn’t be disregarded.
The Suns shut down the Fremantle Dockers 69-33 and we think that’s a much stronger betting guide, despite playing on the road.
We’re happy to take the Suns with the +21.5 start as we expect a closely-fought game.
Betting tip: Gold Coast Titans +21.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

4:35pm North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Melbourne Demons @ Marvel Stadium
A huge betting spread is presented to punters as the high-flying Melbourne Demons should demolish the North Melbourne Kangaroos.
The Kangaroos have shown nothing this season, but the Demons will need to cover a mammoth 70.5-point spread.
It won’t be easy but we envision a 130-50 score line, which would be enough for the Demons to cover the number.
Betting tip: Melbourne Demons –70.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
Demons by 80
7:30pm Adelaide Crows vs St Kilda Saints @ Adelaide Oval
Adelaide looked to be in a good position to beat Brisbane last week, but it was run over approaching half time.
It was a disappointing effort from the Crows and the St Kilda Saints, despite being without some players, could keep their winning run going.
The Saints were gutsy against the Geelong Cats and we think they’ll have too much firepower for the Crows, who could be searching for answers following this game.
Betting tip: St Kilda Saints –20.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
Saints by 29
7:30pm Richmond Tigers vs Essendon Bombers @ MCG
We thought the betting line would be more in favour of the Richmond Tigers, who are only –20.5 to beat the Bombers.
Essendon hasn’t shown us enough to bet on them with confidence and coming off a 58-point loss to Sydney isn’t ideal form.
The Tigers have seemingly got their roar back and we think they’ll be covering the spread with ease on Saturday night.
Betting tip: Richmond Tigers –20.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
Tigers by 35
2:10pm GWS Giants vs West Coast Eagles @ GIANTS Stadium
There isn’t much going in the way of the West Coast Eagles and that should result in the Giants scoring a comfortable win.
The Giants didn’t show their best when losing to Carlton last week but the Eagles managed just 38 points against Melbourne, so we can’t back them.
GWS has to cover a 34.5-point spread but it shouldn’t have too many problems with that.
Betting tip: GWS Giants –34.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
Giants by 42
3:20pm Hawthorn Hawks vs Brisbane Lions @ UoT Stadium
The Brisbane Lions took their time getting into their groove against the Adelaide Crows but they ended up clicking nicely.
The 102-66 win continued the winning run of the Lions and we don’t think the Hawks will play well enough to stop that winning run.
Hawthorn played better against Richmond but the $4.60 available suggests they don’t have much chance to beat the Lions and we would agree.
Betting tip: Brisbane Lions –28.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
Lions by 34
5:20pm Fremantle Dockers vs Collingwood Magpies @ Optus Stadium
We are loving what Fremantle is producing this season and the Dockers should be too good for the Magpies.
They didn’t fire against the Suns last week but that was an anomaly. They are better than that and we expect a nice turn around in form.
Take the Dockers to cover the –28.5 spread against a struggling Magpies outfit.
Betting tip: Fremantle Dockers –28.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
