All the best best, tips and same game multis are in from the team of Aussie Rules experts at BetDeluxe.

brisbane vs. western bulldogs

june 30th 7:20pm

Brisbane was smashed against Melbourne and will be keen to return to form when it plays Western Bulldogs to open up Round 16.

The Lions should regain Zac Bailey and Dayne Zorko, two of their important players, while the Dogs head into this game after flogging Hawthorn at Marvel Stadium. 

Expect the Lions to bounce back.  

Suggested Bet: Brisbane -11.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Brisbane -11.5 
Leg 2: J. Daniher 3+ goals
Leg 3: Total score over 174.5
Combined odds = $5

carlton vs. st kilda

july 1st 7:20pm

Carlton enters its Round 16 clash against St Kilda with the swagger of a 31-point drubbing of Fremantle last week. 

Meanwhile, the Saints looked legless against Sydney and held to four goals. 

St Kilda will likely get back Paddy Ryder and Brad Hill, which should spark some improvement, but that could well be met with the Blues welcoming back Jacob Weitering and Adam Cerra. 

Saints should respond, but the Blues are going too well now.  

Suggested Bet: Carlton -10.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Carlton -10.5
Leg 2: Total points over 161.5
Leg 3: H. McKay 4+ goals
Combined odds = $6.25

essendon vs. sydney

july 2nd 1:45pm

The motivations for these two teams are opposite ends of the spectrum when Essendon meets Sydney.

The Swans are fighting for a spot in the top six, while the Bombers are looking to restore lost pride on a season that dwindles.

Sticking with the Bloods to inflict more misery upon Essendon’s season.

Suggested Bet: Sydney -18.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: Sydney -18.5
Leg 2: J. Lloyd 30+ disposals
Leg 3: L. Franklin 2+ goals
Combined odds = $5.25

adelaide vs. melbourne

july 2nd 4:35pm

When it faces Melbourne, Adelaide will try to press the rewind button to Round 10 in 2021.

The Crows caused a massive upset against Melbourne last year at similar odds and come into this game having belted North Melbourne down in Tasmania. 

However, the class of Melbourne should shine through here. 

Demons to make it two in a row as they charge towards September.

Suggested Bet: Melbourne -35.5

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Melbourne -36.5 
Leg 2: K. Pickett 2+ goals
Leg 3: Total points under 162.5
Combined odds = $5.25

geelong vs. north melbourne

july 2nd 7:25pm

Geelong comes up the $1.01 favourite against North Melbourne.

While this match looks like a fait accompli regarding a Geelong win, it will be intriguing to see how Chris Scott moves the magnets with Tom Stewart all but certain to rubbed out for a minimum of three weeks after his head-high bump on Dion Prestia. 

North at the line might be worth a play despite its atrocious performance against Adelaide. 

Suggested Bet: North +65.5

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: North Melbourne 30+ disposals
Leg 2: A. Hall 30+ disposals
Leg 3: Total points under 160.5
Combined odds = $6

gold coast vs. collingwood

july 2nd 7:25pm

Gold Coast will want to remove that bitter taste of a close loss against Port Adelaide out of its mouth pretty quickly.

This game against Collingwood is one of the most anticipated in Round 16. 

Gold Coast has proven a tough nut to crack at Metricon Stadium, and its midfield can get on top in this game. 

Suggested Bet: Gold Coast -2.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: Gold Coast -2.5
Leg 2: Total points under 144.5
Leg 3: I. Rankine 2+ goals
Combined odds = $7

richmond vs. west coast

july 3rd 2:10pm

After a heart-breaking loss against Geelong, Richmond returns to the MCG when it faces West Coast.

The Eagles might not prove the easy beats they were when these teams met back in Round 7 as the Tigers brutalised their way to a 109-point victory. 

With the injury-list injury listfor West Coast starting clean itself up, expect the Eagles to lift and cover the line.  

Suggested Bet: West Coast Eagles +36.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: West Coast +36.5
Leg 2: Total points over 172.5
Leg 3: L. Ryan 2+ goals
Combined odds = $5.50

gws vs. hawthorn

july 3rd 3:20pm

Not precisely the Sunday prime-time spectacle we were looking forward to, but the Giants take on the Hawks.

Both teams are resigned to the bottom half of the ladder, but the Giants have shown the better form over the last month. 

Hawthorn looks in all sorts after quarter-time against the Bulldogs and will need to ramp it. 

Giants comfortably.  

Suggested Bet: GWS -11.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: GWS -11.5
Leg 2: Total points under 150.5
Leg 3: S. Coniglio 30+ disposals
Combined odds = $5.50

fremantle vs. port adelaide

july 3rd 5:20pm

Fremantle must respond immediately when it faces Port Adelaide at Optus Stadium on Sunday to close out Round 16.

Port will be a headache to get past, but Fremantle can choke opposition teams into submission and should regain a few players from injury. 

The Dockers midfield was utterly shown up by Carlton last weekend and might be without Nathan Fyfe, who will be cited for making contact with an umpire in the 31-point loss to the Blues. 

If he misses, Port can cover the line. 

Suggested Bet: Port Adelaide +17.5 $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: Port Adelaide +17.5
Leg 2: C. Dixon 2+ goals
Leg 3: Total points over 154.5
Combined odds = $4.75
