There are seven games to bet on in the round, which also includes Eagles vs Tigers and Melbourne vs Collingwood.
AFL Round 13 Tips
7:40pm Port Adelaide Power vs Geelong Cats @ Adelaide Oval
Port Adelaide looked good against Fremantle in Round 11 and it would have benefit from the week off.
The Power scored 18.7 in a dominant performance and they’re capable of handling the Geelong Cats on Thursday.
Geelong comes off a narrow victory over the Collingwood Magpies, and although it wasn’t convincing, it also got Round 12 off to rest and recuperate.
There won’t be much between them but we’re going with the Power to come out ahead.

7:50pm Sydney Swans vs Hawthorn Hawks @ SCG
The Sydney Swans squeezed out a gritty win over St Kilda last week and we expect them to kick on with it now. The 92-83 victory was a step in the right direction and we like their chances against a poor Hawthorn outfit.
Not much has gone the way of the Hawks in 2021, including a 113-76 loss to the Gold Coast Suns in Round 11. It was a dour effort and playing on the road isn’t going to help their chances.
Bookmakers have 33.5 points between them, which is a fair assessment of how this game should go.
Betting tip: Sydney Swans –33.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Swans by 40
4:15pm Fremantle Dockers vs Gold Coast Suns @ Optus Stadium
Fremantle hasn’t done much to impress us this season and we don’t think they deserve to be short-priced favourites.
It comes off a 93-65 loss to Western Bulldogs and scoring only nine goals isn’t going to get it done against any level of opposition.
Gold Coast isn’t the most trustworthy team either, but they destroyed the Hawks in Round 11 and that should be a good form guide.
Take the value with the visitors.
Betting tip: Gold Coast Suns +13.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

7:25pm St Kilda Saints vs Adelaide Crows @ Cazaly’s Stadium
St Kilda kept it close against the Swans last week, so it wasn’t a poor showing. The Saints have been around the mark in many games and beating the Crows is well within their grasp.
Adelaide couldn’t get the job done against Collingwood at home last week, which is a disappointing result for a team that looked good to start the season.
Momentum isn’t in favour of the Crows and playing on the road makes it harder. Go with the Saints to win at value odds.
Betting tip: St Kilda Saints @ $1.77 – Bet @ Sportsbet

3:20pm North Melbourne Kangaroos vs GWS Giants @ Blundstone Arena
Bookmakers are giving the Kangaroos respect in betting markets, but we don’t expect them to produce the goods.
They had shown improvement a few weeks back, but even though the Giants are far from classy, they should be too good for the home side.
The Giants only have to cover a 21.5-point line. Other teams have had to cover lines in the 40-60 range, so punters get excellent value.
Betting tip: GWS Giants – 21.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Giants by 29
7:20pm West Coast Eagles vs Richmond Tigers @ Optus Stadium
Richmond showed its class when beating Essendon by 39 points last week and they deserve to be favourites.
Despite some mishaps this season, the Tigers have been ruthless in the contest and we’re not surprised at the bookmakers’ odds despite being on the road.
West Coast scored a 22-point win over Carlton, and although it was a winning effort, it wasn’t as slick as it needs to be. The Eagles could struggle to match the energy of the Tigers.
Betting tip: Richmond Tigers to win @ $1.73 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tigers by 12
3:20pm Melbourne Demons vs Collingwood Magpies @ SCG
The Melbourne Demons were terrific in beating Brisbane last week and that form bodes well against the Magpies.
Collingwood showed heart last week, but Melbourne is on another level and we don’t think it will struggle to beat the Magpies.
Punters should expect the Demons to stay clear at the top of the AFL ladder and produce another stellar performance against an inferior team.
Betting tip: Melbourne Demons –29.5 @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
