AFL action continues with an excellent selection of six games this week, including Port Adelaide vs Sydney.
AFL Round 14 Tips
7:20pm Richmond Tigers vs Carlton Blues @ MCG
The Richmond Tigers started strongly against the Port Adelaide Power last week before letting them back in the game. However, the Tigers were too strong in the end.
They will need to be slightly better against a good Carlton side, who has been well-backed as the underdogs to win.
Carlton has firmed into $2.08 but we think Richmond is building nicely and can see them off the Blues in an important clash.
Betting tip: Richmond Tigers @ $1.78 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Tigers by 10
7:50pm St Kilda Saints vs Essendon Bombers @ Marvel Stadium
The Saints should have every chance to beat the Essendon Bombers, who aren’t playing well this season.
St Kilda could do with a confidence boost following a 78-57 loss to the Brisbane Lions, but it’s facing much easier opposition this time around.
The Saints limited the Lions to only 78 points, which is a good effort and we think they should cover the 27.5-point spread with bookmakers.
Betting tip: St Kilda Saints –27.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Saints by 36
1:45pm Port Adelaide Power vs Sydney Swans @ Adelaide Oval
Port Adelaide almost completed the comeback against Richmond last week and it bodes well against the Sydney Swans.
Backing the Swans with any consistency isn’t easy and we’re prepared to take the Power with home-field advantage and at value odds.
$2 for the Power is a good price and they should improve with last week’s tough game under their belt.
Betting tip: Port Adelaide Power @ $2 Bet @ Ladbrokes

4:35pm West Coast Eagles vs Geelong Cats @ Optus Stadium
There isn’t much going the way of the West Coast Eagles, who are due for another one-sided loss.
The Geelong Cats are set to pounce after having a week off and they looked good in Round 12 when beating the Western Bulldogs.
West Coast are struggling at an all-time level and we don’t see it getting better anytime soon, especially as $9.50 underdogs.
Covering a 48.5-point spread isn’t easy but the Cats should be far too good for one of the worst teams in the competition.
Betting tip: Geelong Cats –48.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Cats by 62
7:25pm GWS Giants vs Western Bulldogs @ GIANTS Stadium
The GWS Giants took care of North Melbourne last week, as most teams in the AFL have been able to do.
They won 102-57 in a dominant performance and they now face a Western Bulldogs team coming off a close loss to the Geelong Cats.
Having had a week off helps and we expect the Bulldogs to be better for it, so the $2.02 available for the visitors is worth snapping up. We could see their odds firming to around $1.90, so take the value available.
Betting tip: Western Bulldogs @ $2.02 Bet @ Ladbrokes
3:20pm Gold Coast Suns vs Adelaide Crows @ Metricon Stadium
The Adelaide Crows took care of business when beating the Eagles two weeks ago but this is a much harder task against the Suns.
That has been reflected in betting markets with the Suns at –30.5, which is a fair margin. However, the Suns beat the Kangaroos by 62 points in their most recent outing.
It should give the Suns a chance to showcase their offence and score a convincing win.
Betting tip: Gold Coast Suns –30.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
