Sydney returns to the SCG for a Friday night encounter against Richmond.
All the best bets from the BetDeluxe team are in.
Sydney vs. richmond
Sydney and Richmond fight it out on Friday night at the SCG to being Round 11 of the AFL premiership season.
The Swans will be looking to rebound off a 15-point loss against Carlton last week but will be missing veteran Josh Kennedy who injured his hamstring after a brutal contest with Sam Docherty.
Richmond, meanwhile, is on the winning wave after dropping Essendon during Dreamtime at the ‘G.
Backing that up at the SCG will always be a task, but the Swans have not been playing their best footy at the ground.
A fortnight ago, losses to Brisbane and Gold Coast overshadowed a big win against Essendon.
The market is saying this will be a close, and it is hard to see anything other than that being the outcome.
The Tigers have improved as the season has gone on, but Sydney met a Carlton side that played some incredible football last week.
Swans to get it done within the two to the four-goal range.
Suggested Bets: Sydney -10.5 at $1.90

total points under 168.5
John Longmire has always made defence a foundation of his squads and he would have been disappointed by conceding 102 points last week.
Richmond is not as big a threat as Carlton is inside 50 at the moment but expect Sydney to show a much more cohesive defensive unit at home.
With Tom Lynch set to miss with a hamstring, the avenues to goal for Richmond are limited.
Suggested Bet: Total points under 168.5 at $1.87

Going for a Sydney-centric multi.
Tom Papley looks ready to explode and now has a good base under him after returning from a quad injury which curtailed the start of his season.
Take the unders into Sydney -10.5 and we nearly get double figures.
Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: Sydney -10.5
Leg 2: T. Papley 3+ goals
Leg 3: Total under 168.5
Combined odds = $9.50
