AFL 2018 – Round 3 Games – Previews, Predictions & Tips
by Ken Edwards, 03 April 2018
Carlton Blues ($2.65) vs Collingwood Magpies ($1.50) – 06/04/2018
Tip – It depends which Carlton turns up. Will it be the Carlton who pushed the Tigers all-the-way in Round 1, or the Blues outfit that meekly surrendered to the Suns in Round 2? Everything points to the Magpies in this one.
Tip – The young Lions continue to improve but they’re not good enough (yet) to seriously threaten the Power at the Adelaide Oval.
place all bets with Bookmaker.com.au:
Tip – If not for a Max Gawn shank in Round 1, the Demons would be 2-0 to begin 2018. The Dees should have too much class and run for the over-performing Kangaroos.
Gold Coast Suns ($2.90) vs Fremantle Dockers ($1.44) – 07/04/2018
Tip – The Dockers don’t travel well away from the west. The Suns to defy the bookies and win on the Gold Coast.
Sydney Swans ($1.70) vs GWS Giants ($2.20) – 07/04/2018
Tip – This Sydney derby could be a close affair. The SCG is a ‘specialist ground’ with its tight pockets and maybe that’s the reason the Swans are favourites. I’d love to be able to back a draw. GWS by a goal.
St Kilda Saints ($3.30) vs Adelaide Crows ($1.35) – 07/04/2018
Tip – The Crows. By plenty.
Richmond Tigers ($1.65) vs Hawthorn Hawks ($2.30) – 08/04/2018
Tip – The Tigers should win on the back of a longer break than the Hawks, who may be mentally drained after the Easter Monday 1-point classic win against the Cats. The Tigers’ 88 000 members should get them home.
Western Bulldogs ($2.85) vs Essendon Bombers ($1.45) – 08/04/2018
Tip – What’s happened to the Dogs – beaten by the Eagles in Melbourne? The Bombers should win.
West Coast Eagles ($2.05) vs Geelong Cats ($1.80) – 08/04/2018
Tip – The only reason I’m plumping for the Eagles here is their easier match than the Cats on the Easter weekend. Both teams are travelling to Perth. It could be a sloppy affair.
