The Marvel Stadium tenants go head to head to begin Round 18 on Friday night. 

All the best bets, tips and value plays for the AFL this weekend. 

western bulldogs vs. st kilda

july 15th 7:50pm

COVID and omissions have sent this game into disarray with Aaron Naughton set to miss for the Bulldogs, but Josh Bruce makes his long-awaited comeback from an ACL injury.

St Kilda has a golden opportunity to keep its top eight chances alive with a win after a shocking display against Fremantle.  

Suggested Bet: St Kilda head to head at $2.12

Suggested Same Game Multi: 

Leg 1: St Kilda head to head
Leg 2: J. Bruce 2+ goals
Leg 3: Total score under 170.5
Combined odds = $7

adelaide vs. collingwood

july 16th 1:45pm

Having a good crack at Adelaide having shown strong form at Adelaide Oval in recent weeks.

Collingwood showed a bit of fragility in its close win against North Melbourne and look under the odds. 

Suggested Bet: Adelaide head to head at $2.42

Suggested Same Game Multi: 

Leg 1: Adelaide head to head
Leg 2: R. Laird 30+ disposals
Leg 3: T. Walker 3+ goals
Combined odds = $4.60

gws vs. brisbane

july 16th 1:45pm

It’s changes galore for both teams heading to Manuka Oval.

GWS would take some confidence from pushing the Lions all the way at the Gabba just over a month ago and can potentially cause an upset here. 

Jacob Hopper back into the midfield mix is huge.

Suggested Bet: GWS head to head at $2.50

Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: GWS head to head
Leg 2: J. Hopper 25+ disposals
Leg 3: T. Greene 2+ goals
Combined odds = $4.75

north melbourne vs. richmond

july 16th 4:35pm

Sad, sorry and sacked.

That has been the story for North Melbourne, but it did show plenty of grit against Collingwood last weekend and the new interim coach usually sparks teams into life. 

Backing North at the line.

Suggested Bet: North Melbourne +44.5 at $1.94

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: North Melbourne +44.5
Leg 2: J. Simpkin 25+ disposals
Leg 3: Total points over 175.5
Combined odds = $4.75

carlton vs. geelong

july 16th 7:25pm

Could very well be game of the year.

The up and comers in Carlton do battle against the wylie old veterans at Geelong. 

Will a Tom Stewart-less back line be able to handle Harry McKay and Charlie Curnow? 

We think not.

Suggested Bet: Carlton head to head at $2.55

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Carlton head to head
Leg 2: H. McKay 3+ goals
Leg 3: Total points under 156.5
Combined odds = $7

fremantle vs. sydney

july 16th 7:30pm

Direct top four ramifications will occur as a result of this cracker between Fremantle and Sydney.

The Dockers have the home-ground advantage, but Sydney is a sniff after belting Western Bulldogs at the SCG last weekend. 

Swans at the line looks the way to go.

Suggested Bet: Sydney +9.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi:
Leg 1: Sydney +9.5
Leg 2: Total points under 157.5
Leg 3: T. Papley 2+ goals
Combined odds = $7

hawthorn vs. west coast

july 17th 1:10pm

Hawthorn and West Coast play in a dead rubber at the MCG on Sunday afternoon.

The Hawks came out and smashed Adelaide in Round 17, while the Eagles continued their struggles after being flogged by Carlton. 

Surely the Hawks get the job done.  

Suggested Bet: Hawthorn -32.5 at $1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Hawthorn -32.5 
Leg 2: Total points over 158.5
Leg 3: M. Lewis 3+ goals
Combined odds = $3.90

melbourne vs. port adelaide

july 17th 3:20pm

Let’s see how Melbourne goes without Clayton Oliver when it plays Port Adelaide in Darwin. 

It all just seems to be unravelling for the Demons at the moment having lost four of their last six games and Port Adelaide are just starting to get their mojo up. 

Suggested Bet: Port Adelaide head to head at $2.56

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Port Adelaide head to head
Leg 2: C. Dixon 3+ goals
Leg 3: O. Wines 30+ disposals
Combined odds = $8.50

essendon vs. gold coast

july 17th 4:40pm

Gold Coast travels down south to Marvel Stadium for a clash against Essendon with the momentum one of the great come-from-behind after-the-siren wins we have seen in recent history. 

Essendon, too, had a sensational win up at the Gabba last weekend and will be on its toes to produce another strong performance. 

Head to head is too hard to predict, think it will be a tight game. 

Going for the unders. 

Suggested Bet: Total points under 172.5 at $1.88
