AFL Round 6 Tips

Friday 22/04/22

7:50pm GWS Giants vs St Kilda Saints @ Manuka Oval

After a strong win over the Gold Coast Suns, we expected the St Kilda Saints to be shorter favourites on Friday.

They scored an 87-61 win over the Suns and the Giants suffered a 120-53 hammering at the hands of Melbourne.

We can’t see the Giants bouncing back after that heavy defeat, so take the Saints at value odds.

Betting tip: St Kilda Saints @ $1.86Bet @ PlayUp

Saturday 23/04/22

1:45pm Western Bulldogs vs Adelaide Crows @ Mars Stadium

We were surprised by how well the Adelaide Crows played against the Richmond Tigers, but beating the Bulldogs could be too tough.

The Western Bulldogs were strong 139-71 winners over North Melbourne and they would fancy themselves to rack up another easy win.

Bookmakers have the line at 26.5 and if the Bulldogs are anywhere near their best, they should win and cover.

Betting tip: Western Bulldogs –26.5 @ $1.90Bet @ PlayUp

4:35pm Port Adelaide Power vs West Coast Eagles @ Adelaide Oval

It’s hard to know what the Port Adelaide Power is going to produce on a weekly basis, but they deserve to be favoured over the Eagles.

The Power tried to produce a comeback effort against Carlton last week, but they came up three points short. It was a gallant effort in defeat and returning home to Adelaide Oval is a bonus.

West Coast was poor against Sydney and we think it struggles to keep up with Port Adelaide.

Betting tip: Port Adelaide Power –13.5 @ $1.90Bet @ PlayUp

Power by 25

7:40pm Fremantle Dockers vs Carlton Blues @ Optus Stadium

We like what the Fremantle Dockers are doing this season and they could have the slight over Carlton.

It could be the closest game of the round as two form teams collide, but we think the Dockers are slightly better on offense.

They were strong against Essendon and although Carlton comes off a win over Port Adelaide, we’re in the Dockers’ camp on Saturday.

Betting tip: Fremantle Dockers @ $1.70Bet @ PlayUp

Sunday 24/04/22

1:10pm North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Geelong Cats @ Blundstone Arena

We expected a big line in favour of the Geelong Cats and bookmakers have the line at 30.5 points.

The Geelong Cats should have far too strong for the North Melbourne Kangaroos, who are struggling to stay competitive once again.

We expect it to be one-way traffic to kick off the big Sunday card.

Betting tip: Geelong Cats –30.5 @ $1.90Bet @ PlayUp

Cats by 49

4:10pm Gold Coast Suns vs Brisbane Lions @ Metricon Stadium

We think the Brisbane Lions are one of the bets of the round at the –15.5 line.

They put away the Collingwood Magpies last week, and despite not playing their best, they were still too strong.

We haven’t been impressed with the Gold Coast Suns, so we thought the betting line would be around the –27.5 mark.

Take the value available with the Lions.

Betting tip: Brisbane Lions –15.5 @ $1.90Bet @ PlayUp

Lions by 24

7:25pm Richmond Tigers vs Melbourne Demons @ MCG

We’re not sure what has happened to the Richmond Tigers this year, but it doesn’t bode well as the Demons come to town.

Melbourne has been playing excellent footy and it comes off a dominant 120-53 win over the Giants, hence the –25.5 line set by bookmakers for this contest.

Betting on the Tigers with confidence is almost impossible and we’re firmly in the camp of the Demons.

Betting tip: Melbourne Demons –25.5 @ $1.90Bet @ PlayUp

Monday 25/04/22

12:30pm Hawthorn Hawks vs Sydney Swans @ University of Tasmania Stadium

We fancy the Sydney Swans to make a run for the AFL title this season, so beating the Hawks at home is a challenge they must overcome.

The Swans have been playing well and they come off a 121-58 win over the West Coast Eagles, so the form checks out.

The Hawks have played well at times, but we can’t turn down the –10.5 line for the Swans, who we expect to win comfortably on ANZAC Day.

Betting tip: Sydney Swans –10.5 @ $1.90Bet @ PlayUp

Swans by 20

3:20pm Essendon Bombers vs Collingwood Magpies @ MCG

Punters could have a tough time splitting the Bombers and Magpies, but we’re taking the value with Essendon.

It has been a rough start to 2022 for the Bombers, but they can lift for this game and the Magpies aren’t anything special.

Bookmakers are offering $2.72 for Essendon and it’s worth a play in head-to-head markets.

Betting tip: Essendon Bombers @ $2.72Bet @ PlayUp
