AFL Round 17 Tips

Thursday 6/7/23

7:20pm Richmond Tigers vs Sydney Swans @ MCG

Richmond was thrashed by the Lions last week, and that will be tough to bounce back from.

However, the Tigers are favoured to beat the Sydney Swans, who had a 54-54 draw against the Geelong Cats, but they blew plenty of chances to win.

We expect better from both teams, but we’re taking the value with the Swans.

Betting tip: Sydney @ $2.21

Sydney by 10


Richmond vs Sydney – betr Same Game Multi

We’ve teamed up with betr to provide the GoBet Multi for the first game of every round of the 2023 AFL season.

Punters get $2.21 for the Swans to win, which is a great way to boost payouts. Both teams are struggling to score points, so we expect a low-scoring contest on Thursday night, so include the under total match points in our same game multi. Braeden Campbell scored two goals in fine fashion last week, so include him to score a goal on Thursday.

Friday 7/7/23

7:50pm Western Bulldogs vs Collingwood Magpies @ Marvel Stadium

Collingwood isn’t getting much respect from bookmakers despite scoring an easy win over Gold Coast last week when being only –12.5.

The Bulldogs are a tough opponent, but we expect Collingwood to be too strong once again, and continue to lead the competition.

We will happily take the –12.5 again under similar circumstances.

Betting tip: Collingwood –12.5 @ $1.90

Saturday 8/7/23

1:45pm Brisbane Lions vs West Coast Eagles @ Gabba

The Lions were far too good for the Tigers last week and they will be far too good for the Eagles, who are dreadful.

There was improvement from the Eagles when losing 85-77 last week, but we can’t see that result happening again.

Take Brisbane to score a convincing win.

Betting tip: Brisbane

Brisbane by 55

4:35pm GWS Giants vs Hawthorn Hawks @ GIANTS Stadium

The Giants dug deep to score a 47-45 win over Melbourne last week, which is an excellent form guide against the Hawks.

Hawthorn had a chance to make a comeback against the Blues last week, but they weren’t able to keep it going in a disappointing 112-52 loss.

Punters get the Giants at –27.5, which is a fair line from bookmakers.

Betting tip: GWS Giants –27.5 @ $1.90

7:25pm St Kilda Saints vs Melbourne Demons @ Marvel Stadium

St Kilda didn’t beat West Coast by as much as expected last week, so despite coming off a disappointing loss, Melbourne should be far too good.

The Demons lost to GWS by two points in a low-scoring affair, but it was still an encouraging performance, especially against a team like St Kilda.

Take the –14.5, which could move to around –18 on game day.

Betting tip: Melbourne –14.5 @ $1.90

Melbourne by 22

7:40pm Port Adelaide Power vs Gold Coast Suns @ Adelaide Oval

It was a crazy last second win for Port Adelaide last week against Essendon, and that momentum makes it tough to beat again.

The Power are $1.18 favourites to beat Gold Coast, who were average against Collingwood, and we don’t see them improving too much.

Even though bookmakers have the line at –31.5, the Power are good enough to cover.

Betting tip: Port Adelaide –31.5 @ $1.90

Sunday 9/7/23

1:10pm Geelong Cats vs North Melbourne Kangaroos @ GMHBA Stadium

Geelong is a firm –49.5 favourite to beat North Melbourne and that line might not be big enough.

The Cats are the superior team by some margin, and although they weren’t at their best last week, that’s likely to change.

It should be a field day for their goal scorers, who could put up a massive score line.

Betting tip: Geelong –49.5 @ $1.90

Geelong by 62

3:20pm Essendon Bombers vs Adelaide Crows @ Marvel Stadium

It was heartbreak for Essendon against Port Adelaide last week, but it could rebound with a win over Adelaide.

It was almost a great comeback result for Essendon, but a game-winning kick was scored by Port Adelaide in the dying stages of the game.

Adelaide is a tough team to beat, but take Essendon to bounce back.

Betting tip: Essendon @ $1.81

4:40pm Fremantle Dockers vs Carlton Blues @ Optus Stadium

Fremantle were no match for the Western Bulldogs last week, but they are favoured to beat the Blues on Sunday.

Carlton comes off a good victory over the Hawks, and we think that’s a good form guide for this contest, so take the Blues to win.

They are paying $2.27, which is an excellent price.

Betting tip: Carlton @ $2.27
