AFL Round 12 Tips

Thursday 30/5/24

7:30pm Port Adelaide Power vs Carlton Blues @ Adelaide Oval

Port Adelaide got the job done against the Kangaroos last week, which is enough to see it listed as the $1.73 favourite against Carlton.

The Blues were the more impressive winners when beating Gold Coast easily, and there is value with their $2.12 odds.

Playing at Adelaide Oval makes it harder, but even though we usually back the Power at home, they haven’t been overly impressive in the Oval this year.

Betting tip: Carlton @ $2.12

Friday 31/5/24

7:40pm Collingwood Magpies vs Western Bulldogs @ Marvel Stadium

The Magpies have played some thrilling matches this year, including last week’s draw against Fremantle.

It was a game they should have won after letting the Dockers back into the game late, but we fancy their chances of bouncing back.

They host the Bulldogs, who haven’t been playing their best footy this season. They are currently outside the top eight, but they have been specked at $2.50 to beat Collingwood.

Stick with the Magpies to secure the points.

Betting tip: Collingwood @ $1.54

Saturday 1/6/24

1:45pm Hawthorn Hawks vs Adelaide Crows @ MCG

There hasn’t been much go right for the Hawks and Crows, but we believe the Crows are the better team with more potential.

That’s enough to put them on top at $1.69 to beat the struggling Hawks, who have shown glimpses of potential, but they’re not consistent enough.

We still believe the Crows are good enough to make the playoffs, so expect them to beat the Hawks on Saturday.

Betting tip: Adelaide –5.5 @ $1.90

4:35pm West Coast Eagles vs St Kilda Saints @ Optus Stadium

We can’t believe we’re seeing the Eagles listed as favourites, but it goes to show how bad the Saints are in 2024.

They are one place ahead of the Eagles but based on recent results and having home field advantage, there is more money for the Eagles to win.

They are $1.78 favourites to win, which is worth a screenshot. We can’t remember that last time they were favourites except when facing the Kangaroos.

The hype is real, so back them to win.

Betting tip: West Coast @ $1.78

7:30pm Geelong Cats vs Richmond Tigers @ GMHBA Stadium

There is a big difference on the AFL ladder between Geelong and Richmond, which is reflected in betting markets.

The Cats are $1.05 favourites to win, which is the shortest quote of the week, and we’re not surprised.

Richmond is a shadow of its former self, and it’s tough to watch. The Tigers are 17th on the ladder, which is shocking given some of their talent.

The –46.5 line isn’t easy to cover, but betting on the Tigers is throwing away money.

Betting tip: Geelong –46.5 @ $1.90

Sunday 2/6/24

1:00pm Melbourne Demons vs Fremantle Dockers @ TIO Traeger Park

It’s one of the premier games of the week as Melbourne looks to hold off the visiting Dockers.

The Demons have played well enough to be inside the top four, and we’re not surprised they’re favourites to win at $1.45.

However, Fremantle is a team that loves to score an upset, and there could be value with the $2.76 and +13.5 line.

It should be higher up the AFL ladder, and a win over Melbourne could change the course of its year. Therefore, we’re taking the Dockers to at least cover the spread.

Betting tip: Fremantle +13.5 @ $1.90

4:00pm Gold Coast Suns vs Essendon Bombers @ People First Stadium

We love the way Essendon is playing now, so we’re latching on to the $2.12 head-to-head odds.

The Bombers haven’t done much wrong this season, and although they haven’t played many of the top teams, the Gold Coast Suns aren’t one of them.

We thought Essendon would be favourites to win, despite playing on the road. We’re happy with the generous odds.

Betting tip: Essendon @ $2.12
