The West Coast Eagles are soaring at the top of the AFL premiership ladder after another big win last week.
Melbourne Demons are also showing just how tough they will be to beat this season and both teams are in action this week.
We have free tips, form and odds for all Round 10 AFL games this week.
7:50pm Collingwood Magpies vs. Western Bulldogs @ Etihad Stadium
That was a character-building win for the Magpies last week and although it only came against the Saints, it will steer them in the right direction.
Conversely, the Bulldogs struggled to get the better of the weather and the Adelaide Hawks last Friday night.
The 62-26 loss is one of the lowest-scoring efforts in the Bulldogs history and it’s tough to see them getting up for this Friday night game.
Betting tip: Collingwood 1-39 @ $2.10 (BET NOW)
Collingwood by 30
1:45pm Richmond Tigers vs. St Kilda Saints @ MCG
The Tigers were tamed last week against the West Coast Eagles but it was never going to be an easy task away from home.
They face a much easier task this week against the lowly Saints, which are struggling to get anything going this season.
This will be a great chance for the Tigers to flex their muscles and the Saints could be on a hiding to nothing here.
Betting tip: Richmond 40+ @ $1.57 (BET NOW)
Richmond by 50
4:35pm Brisbane Lions vs. Sydney Swans @ Gabba
We didn’t think the Lions had it in them but they proved us wrong by beating the Hawks last week.
Scoring 129 points went a long way to achieving that and now that they’ve broken through, it might open up the door for more wins this season.
Standing in their way this week are the Sydney Swans, which looked equally impressive against Fremantle last week.
Bookmakers are in the camp of the Swans, which goes against the norm this season, but we agree and believe the Swans will get the job done comfortably this week.
Betting tip: Sydney 1-39 @ $2.10 (BET NOW)
Sydney by 28
7:25pm Geelong Cats vs. Carlton Blues @ GMBHA Stadium
Despite scoring only 50 points against Essendon last week, the Cats are distinct favourites against the Blues this week.
That could be in part due to the Blues only scoring 50 points themselves and that was a home performance. The 159-50 score line doesn’t flatter the Blues’ chances this week and this game could be over before it started.
Bookmakers have the Cats as $1.05 favourites and it would take a brave punter to back the Blues at $10.50 in the head-to-head market.
Betting tip: Geelong –48.5 @ $1.92 (BET NOW)
Geelong by 67
7:25pm GWS Giants vs. Essendon Bombers @ Spotless Stadium
It has been a tough season to predict for both the Giants and the Bombers.
Consistency hasn’t been their strong points and that’s shown in the market this week. Bookmakers have the Bombers as $2.85 underdogs despite winning last week.
GWS are $1.43 favourites despite losing 112-69 to the Kangaroos.
Punters are getting good value with the Bombers because both teams are tough to predict and we don’t think there’s much between them.
Betting tip: Essendon +16.5 @ $1.92 (BET NOW)
Essendon by 6
1:10pm Hawthorn Hawks vs. West Coast Eagles @ Etihad Stadium
Bookmakers are playing this game cautiously by offering $1.68 for the red-hot West Coast Eagles.
Despite sitting at the top of the premiership with nine wins from 10 games, the Eagles aren’t as short in the market as most would have predicted.
Playing away from home could be the problem this week but the Hawks looked average against Brisbane and we can’t tip them based on that performance.
Stick with the better team.

2:50pm Melbourne Demons vs. Adelaide Crows @ TIO Traeger Park
We’re loving the way the Demons are playing this season and we’re also loving the odds on offer this week.
The Demons scored an emphatic 159-50 win over Carlton last week and they’re playing some of the best footy in the league.
Also playing well are the Crows, which scored a tough 63-26 win over the Bulldogs in wet conditions last week.
Bookmakers have Melbourne as the $1.96 underdogs here and that’s value we can’t overlook.

4:40pm Fremantle Dockers vs. North Melbourne Kangaroos @ Optus Stadium
The Kangaroos scored a big win last week over the Giants and they could score consecutive victories this week.
Fremantle didn’t get going against the Swans last week and punters should expect a better performance but will it be enough to beat the Kangaroos?
The Dockers haven’t been easy to follow this season and although they haven’t been shocking, they haven’t been good enough to warrant our money this week.
