AFL Round 6 Tips

Thursday 18/4/24

7:30pm St Kilda Saints vs Western Bulldogs @ Marvel Stadium

There isn’t much between the Saints and Bulldogs with betting markets, but we give the slight edge to the Bulldogs who will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing performance against the Bombers.

It has been a scratchy start for both teams, but the Bulldogs have more upside than the Saints, and playing at Marvel Stadium won’t worry them.

The $2.12 could shorten throughout the week.

Betting tip: Bulldogs @ $2.12

Bulldogs by 12

Friday 19/4/24

7:40pm Adelaide Crows vs Essendon Bombers @ Adelaide Oval

Adelaide caused the upset of the round last week against Carlton, and will be looking to put together consecutive wins in front of their home crowd on Friday night.

Expectations were high heading into 2024, but if they can’t beat Essendon at home, they have no chance of making the finals.

The Bombers are coming off a strong win over the Bulldogs, but consistency is a major issue for the Bombers, so getting a –12.5 line for Adelaide is too good to pass up.

Betting tip: Adelaide –12.5 @ $1.90

Crows by 24

Saturday 20/4/24

1:45pm Collingwood Magpies vs Port Adelaide Power @ MCG

This is another close game between the Magpies and Power, and we’re happy to have Collingwood on our ticket.

They have made a slow start to 2024, but they are usually a team that builds in confidence as the weeks roll by.

Port Adelaide has been solid, but we’re not fans of backing them on the road, so take Collingwood to get the win.

Betting tip: Collingwood @ $1.78

4:35pm Carlton Blues vs GWS Giants @ Marvel Stadium

Bookmakers are having a tough time splitting the Blues and Giants, but we’re taking the value with the Giants on the road.

They have been excellent so far and getting $2.05 for the best team in the competition is too good to pass up.

We respect the way Carlton have started the season, especially considering their tapered pre-season expectations. However, the Giants should be too strong.

Betting tip: GWS @ $2.05

GWS by 10

7:30pm Brisbane Lions vs Geelong Cats @ Gabba

It took the Lions a few weeks to get off the mark, but they did so with an impressive win over Melbourne.

They could use that momentum to beat the Geelong Cats, who have made the better start. However, the Cats are outsiders for this game, and we’re not surprised.

We expect Brisbane to kick on with it now.

Betting tip: Brisbane –14.5 @ $1.90

8:10pm West Coast Eagles vs Fremantle Dockers @ Optus Stadium

The Eagles have had no betting support and rightfully so.

Despite their surprise victory over Richmond last week, they are one of the worst teams in the AFL –  rivaled only by the North Melbourne Kangaroos – so we’re avoiding backing them.

An easy win is likely for Fremantle, which is the –40.5 favourite. That’s a big line, but backing the Eagles is throwing away money in this game.

Betting tip: Fremantle –40.5 @ $1.90

Sunday 21/4/24

1:00pm Sydney Swans vs Gold Coast Suns @ SCG

It has been a good start to the year for the Swans, who are the –22.5 line favourites against Gold Coast.

We have been impressed by the Swans, who have a strong team on their day, and the Suns don’t always finish off games in the second half.

That was the case against GWS, so we’re backing the home side to cover the line.

Betting tip: Sydney –22.5 @ $1.90

4:00pm North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Hawthorn Hawks @ Marvel Stadium

There are only two teams the Kangaroos can beat; one is the Eagles, and the other is the Hawks.

They are as bad as each other, but considering the Kangaroos are $3.01, we can’t turn down that value.

We haven’t been impressed with Hawthorn, so this is a rare time when we’ll have North Melbourne on our ticket.

Betting tip: North Melbourne @ $3.01
