AFL Round 16 Tips

Friday 28/6/24

7:40pm Brisbane Lions vs Melbourne Demons @ Gabba

The Lions and Demons are outside the top eight, but there is more upside with the Lions.

They are the $1.22 favourites for a reason, and given the struggles of Melbourne in 2024, we’re backing them to win.

Covering a –26.5 spread against a team with the roster of Melbourne isn’t easy, but we predict Brisbane holding down the fort at home with ease.

Betting tip: Brisbane –26.5 @ $1.90

Brisbane by 32

Saturday 29/6/24

1:45pm North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Western Bulldogs @ Marvel Stadium

The Kangaroos are playing much better recently after another close loss last week. However, that could come to an end against the Bulldogs.

There’s only so many close losses the Kangaroos can take before they capitulate, and the Bulldogs need a big win.

It should come this week as the –34.5 favourite.

Betting tip: Bulldogs –34.5 @ $1.90

Bulldogs by 40

1:45pm Sydney Swans vs Fremantle Dockers @ SCG

The Swans are the best team in the competition at the moment, and they should pass another tough test.

The Dockers aren’t an easy team to beat, and we think they could be a force in the playoffs. However, Sydney is playing too well.

They’re good enough to cover the –24.5 spread, and playing at home should help their cause.

Betting tip: Sydney –24.5 @ $1.90

Sydney by 30

4:35pm Gold Coast Suns vs Collingwood Magpies @ People First Stadium

There isn’t much between the Suns and Magpies in betting markets, with the Magpies holding slight favouritism at $1.81.

They have played much better than the Suns recently, including pulling off a 51-point comeback win over the Kangaroos.

This game is harder, but there is much more upside with the visitors, so take the generous odds from bookmakers.

Betting tip: Collingwood @ $1.81

7:30pm Adelaide Crows vs GWS Giants @ Adelaide Oval

We have given the Crows plenty of chances to impress us, but they keep letting us down.

Therefore, we’re backing the Giants to score a road win, and it could potentially get them close to a top four spot.

There have been good wins for the Giants, who sit in sixth spot, and if they’re anywhere near their best, they should beat a struggling Adelaide.

Betting tip: GWS @ $1.81

7:30pm Geelong Cats vs Essendon Bombers @ MCG

Essendon has been criticised for not playing well against the top teams, but it’s good enough to beat Geelong.

The Cats have mixed form in 2024, but we’re unsure where to rank them in the grand scale of things.

There is more momentum with the Bombers, who have attracted plenty of attention with bookmakers. They are the $1.73 favourites, and we expect more money to come for them.

Betting tip: Essendon @ $1.73

Sunday 30/6/24

1:10pm St Kilda Saints vs Port Adelaide Power @ Marvel Stadium

The Saints need to start a march, otherwise, their chances of making the playoffs will be gone.

Beating the Power on Sunday would be a step in the right direction, and the odds suggest it will be another close contest at Marvel Stadium.

We’re prepared to take the risk and back the Saints to win with home field advantage.

Betting tip: St Kilda @ $1.82

3:20pm Richmond Tigers vs Carlton Blues @ MCG

We like what the Blues have been doing this year, and they should sweep by the Tigers.

Richmond sits in 17th spot, and it’s the $5.50 underdog, and we’re not surprised by the long odds from bookmakers.

Momentum and class is with Carlton, which should win comfortably.

Betting tip: Carlton –35.5 @ $1.90

4:40pm West Coast Eagles vs Hawthorn Hawks @ Optus Stadium

The Eagles sit in 16th spot on the AFL ladder, behind Hawthorn, but this could be their chance to score a rare win.

Beating the Hawks isn’t that difficult, and if the Eagles want to build any momentum heading into next season, this would be a good start.

We’re taking the risk with the $2.69 odds.

Betting tip: West Coast @ $2.69
