AFL Round 3 Tips

Thursday 28/3/24

7:30pm Brisbane Lions vs Collingwood Magpies @ Gabba

It has been a tough start for the Lions and Magpies, who aren’t playing anywhere close to what they showed last year.

We think the Lions look better, and playing at home adds to their appeal, hence the short betting odds with the sportsbook.

Back the Lions to win and cover the spread against a struggling Collingwood.

Betting tip: Brisbane –16.5 @ $1.90

Friday 29/3/24

4:20pm North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Carlton Blues @ Marvel Stadium

There are no two ways about it; the North Melbourne Kangaroos are a terrible footy team.

Carlton should be licking its lips at the prospect of a big win on Good Friday, and we’re backing the Blues to cover the –36.5 spread.

There is nothing to get excited about for North Melbourne, so we’re not putting our hard-earned money on the Kangaroos.

Betting tip: Carlton –36.5 @ $1.90

7:30pm Fremantle Dockers vs Adelaide Crows @ Optus Stadium

We were disappointed with what Adelaide offered last week, and Fremantle has looked much better.

Despite being underrated in pre-season markets, the Dockers are good enough to push for a top four spot.

We’re backing them to beat Adelaide at home, and most of the early money is with the favourite.

Betting tip: Fremantle –13.5 @ $1.90

Fremantle by 16

Saturday 30/3/24

4:20pm Essendon Bombers vs St Kilda Saints @ Marvel Stadium

The inconsistent form continues for Essendon, which is one of the more enigmatic teams in the AFL.

It’s going to be a tough game on Saturday, and we’re not surprised the Saints are favoured after looking good last week against the Magpies.

Based on that performance, we’re taking St Kilda to win and cover the spread.

Betting tip: St Kilda –8.5 @ $1.90

St Kilda by 14

7:30pm Port Adelaide Power vs Melbourne Demons @ Adelaide Oval

One of the best bets in the AFL has long been backing Port Adelaide at home, and it’s good enough to beat Melbourne on Saturday.

Both teams occupy a top four spot, so there is plenty on the line, but the Power always have an advantage at Adelaide Oval.

We’re taking them at the –14.5 line, as they can turn on the jets early and never look back.

Betting tip: Port Adelaide –14.5 @ $1.90

Port Adelaide by 18

Sunday 31/3/24

1:00pm Western Bulldogs vs West Coast Eagles @ Marvel Stadium

The Bulldogs scored a comfortable win last week, and life should be even more comfortable against the Eagles.

Much like the Kangaroos, the Eagles are a team to be avoided. They are terrible, to put it mildly, and we’re not entertaining their chances.

Take the Bulldogs to cover the big spread, in what should be a one-sided affair.

Betting tip: Western Bulldogs –46.5 @ $1.90

4:00pm Richmond Tigers vs Sydney Swans @ MCG

The Tigers aren’t the powerhouse they once were, and the Sydney Swans have hit their groove.

The Swans sit in second position after a positive start to the year, and we expect them to be too strong for the Tigers.

Bookmakers have the Swans at –23.5, which is a sizable line, but it could be a week for the favourites, and Sydney is one of the stronger bets.

Betting tip: Sydney –23.5 @ $1.90

Sydney by 26

Monday 1/4/24

3:20pm Hawthorn Hawks vs Geelong Cats @ MCG

Geelong said “don’t forget about us” last week, and that momentum should carry over against the Hawks on Easter Monday.

It was a strong win for the Cats over the Crows, and that should give them plenty of confidence, especially against teams like the Hawks.

Covering the –20.5 line shouldn’t be too difficult for the title contenders.

Betting tip: Geelong –20.5 @ $1.90

Geelong by 26
