AFL Round 5, Tips & Preview, Sunday 17th April

The best bets and tips from BetDeluxe for Easter Sunday's Round 5 AFL fixtures.

Happy Easter, punters! 

All the bets bets and selections for Easter Sunday AFL fixtures and it all starts with the Blues taking on the Power at the MCG. 

carlton vs. port adelaide

april 17th 1:45pm

Carlton will be looking to inflict more pain upon Port Adelaide when the two teams go head to head at the MCG on Easter Sunday afternoon.

Injuries have not been kind to Port Adelaide and has left it languishing on the bottom of AFL ladder at 0-4, but there is news it could regain Robbie Gray and Aliir Aliir for this important clash. 

The Blues, meanwhile, are likely to be without skipper Patrick Cripps who tweaked his hamstring in the lacklustre five-goal loss to Gold Coast last Sunday. 

His omission is likely offset by on-ball midfield bull Ollie Wines missing this game with a heart scare. 

Port tried to build some sort of foundation for a win against Melbourne last week, but the Blues will be eager to bounce back after such a good start to the year. 

Should the Power welcome back Gray and Aliir, back them to cover the line. 

If not, Blues should get the job done to move to 4-1.  

Suggested Bets: Port +11.5 at $1.90 (If Gray and Aliir play) 

Carlton -11.5 at $1.90 (Should one or neither of Gray and Aliir play)

essendon vs. fremantle

april 17th 4:40pm

Essendon will be looking to make it consecutive wins when it faces Fremantle at Marvel Stadium on Sunday for a twilight fixture under the roof.

The Bombers got through by the skin of their teeth record their first win of 2022 when defeating the Crows by four points, while the Dockers held firm inside the top eight with a big win over the Giants. 

Fremantle has looked impressive throughout 2022, but the Bombers will be relying on a very strong record at Marvel against the Purple Haze in recent fixtures. 

Essendon has won its last five matches against Fremantle at Docklands and will welcome back head coach Ben Rutten to the fold after he had a week in isolation. 

Think the Bombers can continue their winning ways with Peter Wright standing up as the sole key forward.

Suggested Bet: Essendon head to head at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Essendon head to head
Leg 2: D. Parish 30+ disposals
Leg 3: P. Wright 2+ goals
Leg 4: Total points scored under 167.5
Combined odds = $5.75
