We have expert betting tips for AFL Round 14, which starts with Geelong vs Western Bulldogs on Friday night.
It’s a short round this week, which includes only five games. However, we’re excited for every game and we have found our best value bets.
AFL Round 14 Tips
7:50pm Geelong Cats vs Western Bulldogs @ GMHBA Stadium
The Geelong Cats were too powerful for the Port Adelaide Power last week and it was a statement win for a club with premiership ambitions.
It was a terrific 112-91 victory that included multiple scoring runs, which saw the Cats fight back from a 20-point deficit at one stage.
The Western Bulldogs come off a bye week, which followed a 93-65 win over the Fremantle Dockers in Round 12. It was a solid effort, but it’s about to get much harder.
Geelong has the edge in this matchup and it should be far too good for the Bulldogs to open Round 14.

1:45pm Gold Coast Suns vs Port Adelaide Power @ Metricon Stadium
There wasn’t much energy shown by the Gold Coast Suns when losing 76-49 to Fremantle last week. It was a dour effort that won’t bode well against the Power this week.
Port Adelaide were upset by Geelong at Adelaide Oval, but it wasn’t a bad performance. The Power looked excellent at times but failed to stop the multiple scoring runs of the Cats.
We expect a bounce back effort despite being on the road. They have too much class and too much scoring power for the Suns.

4:35pm North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Brisbane Lions @ Marvel Stadium
A draw is as good as a win for the North Melbourne Kangaroos. They produced a good effort to score a 94-94 draw against the GWS Giants, which is much better than their recent results.
It’s a step in the right direction for a club that hasn’t had any success this season. However, facing the Brisbane Lions isn’t an ideal follow-up game.
They come off a bye week, which followed a 97-75 loss to Melbourne. Despite the loss, it was a solid outing and they led at halftime. The second half was tough, but we’re expecting a much better effort this week.
We expect Brisbane to be the short-priced favourite and they should cover the spread with ease on Saturday.

7:25pm GWS Giants vs Carlton Blues @ GIANTS Stadium
We had high expectations for the Giants last week, but scoring a draw against the Kangaroos is a loss.
The Giants haven’t been able to get any momentum going and it’s a big concern. They are struggling to put away the easier teams and they get another stern test this week against the Blues.
Carlton have rested legs after losing to the West Coast Eagles in Round 12. The 95-73 defeat wasn’t a bad outing given the strength of opposition.
We understand if money comes for the Blues on Saturday night, but we’re sticking with the Giants. They need to dig deep and produce their best, so they get one more week from us.

3:20pm Hawthorn Hawks vs Essendon Bombers @ MCG
The Hawks produced their best performance of the season when beating the Sydney Swans 89-51 last week. It was a dominant performance from a team that desperately needed a confidence boost.
Essendon is another team coming off a bye week, which followed a disappointing 123-84 loss to the Richmond Tigers. They were blown off the park, but getting a week off helps.
We expect the Bombers to come firing against a Hawks outfit that is hard to trust. Punters should get value odds for the Bombers in this situation.
