AFL Round 9 Tips

Thursday 9/5/24

7:30pm Carlton Blues vs Melbourne Demons @ MCG

Carlton was disappointing last week when losing to the Magpies, but it could bounce back in fine style against Melbourne.

It won’t be an easy contest, and the Blues are the betting underdogs at $2.00. However, we expect them to play much better.

They are strong in the midfield, and that’s where they could get the advantage over Melbourne.

Betting tip: Carlton @ $2.00

Carlton by 7

Friday 10/5/24

7:10pm Geelong Cats vs Port Adelaide Power @ GMHBA Stadium

Looking to bounce back from a loss are the Cats, who lost their top spot on the AFL ladder last week.

They should fancy their chances of beating the Power, who were disappointing when losing to Adelaide last week.

We’re not surprised by the –22.5 line for the Cats, and they should come away with a comfortable win at home.

Betting tip: Geelong –22.5 @ $1.90

Geelong by 32

8:30pm Fremantle Dockers vs Sydney Swans @ Optus Stadium

The Sydney Swans have taken over the top spot, and they are the favourites to beat the Dockers on Friday night.

Fremantle is in sixth position on the ladder, which is a fair result for it so far. However, the Swans have been much more impressive.

The –5.5 line is well worth snapping up before it moves throughout the week.

Betting tip: Sydney –5.5 @ $1.90

Saturday 11/5/24

1:45pm Hawthorn Hawks vs St Kilda Saints @ UTas Stadium

Not much has gone right for the Hawks or Saints, but based on our pre-season rankings, we’re backing the Saints to win.

They have more upside than the Hawks, who languish in 16th spot on the ladder. That’s not where they want to be, so the Saints should have the edge.

They are –10.5 favourites, and that line is worth locking in.

Betting tip: St Kilda –10.5 @ $1.90

4:35pm Essendon Bombers vs GWS Giants @ Marvel Stadium

We like what Essendon is doing in 2024, and the Bombers are good enough to handle the Giants.

It won’t be an easy game, and they are the $2.36 outsiders, but that’s excellent value for a team playing with good spirit.

Last week’s game was a little close for comfort, but it’s all about winning for Essendon, so ride the hot team.

Betting tip: Essendon @ $2.36

7:30pm Richmond Tigers vs Western Bulldogs @ MCG

The Bulldogs get a prime chance to make their way up the rankings with a win over the Tigers.

They haven’t played their best footy over the last few weeks, but the Tigers have played much worse, and currently sit in 17th.

The –21.5 line is tough to cover, but this could be a statement game for the Bulldogs.

Betting tip: Western Bulldogs –21.5 @ $1.90

Bulldogs by 27

7:30pm Gold Coast Suns vs North Melbourne Kangaroos @ TIO Stadium

The Suns are short favourites to beat the Kangaroos, which surprises no one.

They are –44.5 favourites, despite being 10th on the AFL ladder. However, when you play the Kangaroos, it doesn’t matter which position you are in.

North Melbourne just isn’t a good team, and we don’t see that changing anytime soon.

Betting tip: Gold Coast –44.5 @ $1.90

Gold Coast by 54

Sunday 12/5/24

1:00pm Collingwood Magpies vs West Coast Eagles @ Marvel Stadium

Much like the Suns, the Magpies are big favourites to produce the goods on Sunday.

Collingwood is a –42.5 favourite to beat the hapless Eagles, who are in 15th position, which is a good result for them.

Following a win over Carlton, the Magpies should be far too good for one of the worst AFL teams we have ever seen.

Betting tip: Collingwood –42.5 @ $1.90

Collingwood by 50

4:00pm Adelaide Crows vs Brisbane Lions @ Adelaide Oval

Adelaide and Brisbane have struggled to show their best form, so this is an important game.

We expected the Crows and Lions to be much higher up the ladder, and the winner of this game could springboard them into action.

We always like backing the Crows at home, so we’re happy to stick with them, especially following a win over Port.

Betting tip: Adelaide @ $1.65
