We have expert betting tips for all Round 15 AFL games this week.
Normal service resumes this week with nine quality games for punters to bet on. Action starts on Thursday with the Bombers vs. Giants and concludes on Sunday afternoon when the Dockers host the Blues.
7:20pm Essendon Bombers vs. GWS Giants @ Marvel Stadium
The Giants scored a convincing win over the Kangaroos in Round 13 before getting a deserved bye last week. They will come into this game fresh and that might not bode well for the Bombers.
Essendon were disappointing losers to the West Coast Eagles last week, losing 106-71 in what was a poor offensive display.
They will look to bounce back at Marvel Stadium this week but it’s not going to be easy.

7:50pm Geelong Cats vs. Adelaide Crows @ GMBHA Stadium
We’re not sure what happened to the Cats last week but we are not expecting too many of those performances.
The 67-56 loss to the Port Adelaide Power was a good defensive display all matters speaking, but scoring 56 points even in those conditions isn’t great.
Bouncing back against the Crows, which had a bye last week, won’t be easy. However, we’re expecting a good bounce-back effort from the Cats, who are the better team.

1:45pm Hawthorn Hawks vs. West Coast Eagles @ MCG
The Hawks had their chance to upset the Swans last Friday night but they couldn’t get the job done. It’s not about to get any easier as they face the confident West Coast Eagles.
The Eagles are coming off a 106-71 home win over the Bombers and that should give them enough confidence going forward.
With their sights set on another title, we wouldn’t put it past the Eagles to rack up a convincing victory on Saturday afternoon.

4:35pm Sydney Swans vs. Gold Coast Suns @ SCG
We were pleased with what we saw from the Swans last week and they could cause some of the better teams trouble in the mid stages of the season.
Their win last week came over the Hawks, where they controlled the game early and held them off nicely.
Facing easier opposition this week will only help their cause and given how poorly the Gold Coast Suns are travelling this season, this should be an easy game for the Swans.

7:25pm Collingwood Magpies vs. North Melbourne Kangaroos @ Marvel Stadium
Collingwood weren’t as convincing when beating the Bulldogs last week as they have been this season, but it was still a quality win.
Heading back home is only going to help their chances and they’re facing a Kangaroos team which doesn’t have much momentum.
They were defeated in Round 13 before getting a bye last week. For North Melbourne, they will be hoping that week off gave them some much-needed energy.
Magpies are the favourites to win and rightfully so.

8:10pm Port Adelaide Power vs. Western Bulldogs @ Adelaide Oval
The Power will be brimming with confidence after beating the Geelong Cats last week and they could take advantage of a vulnerable Bulldogs side.
Bulldogs were beaten by the Crows last week and although they weren’t too far off winning that game, it was another loss against a top-flight team.
They face another this week and the Power are awfully tough to hold out at home. They showed that last week and we’re predicting another top effort this week.
Betting tip: Power –22.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now

1:10pm St Kilda Saints vs. Richmond Tigers @ Marvel Stadium
The Saints are coming off a rather dismal 59-115 loss at the hands of the Brisbane Lions and that won’t instill confidence with punters.
It was a poor display of footy and it’s tough seeing them improving enough to beat one of the better teams in the competition.
Tigers enjoyed a week off in Round 14 and that was much-needed after their big loss to the Adelaide Crows in Round 13.
This looks like an ideal chance to get back into the winners’ column.

3:20pm Brisbane Lions vs. Melbourne Demons @ Gabba
The Melbourne Demons scored a much-needed win over Fremantle last week and they’ll need all of that confidence this week.
Facing the Lions at home isn’t an easy task and they’re one of the most improved teams this season. They’re also coming off a tidy 115-59 win over the Saints, which was played away from home.
Having that scoring power should put fear into the minds of the Demons and we’re predicting a comfortable home win for Brisbane.
Betting tip: Lions –13.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Lions by 22
3:20pm Fremantle Dockers vs. Carlton Blues @ Optus Stadium
Fremantle might have lost last week to the Demons but they were right in the game until the very end.
Bookmakers have this game as a one-sided affair and it’s tough to disagree with that. The Blues haven’t been good this season and that’s likely to show up again here.
Fremantle are a team that could string wins together and producing a good effort this week could send them on their way.
