AFL 2019 – Round 16 Predictions – Odds, Previews & Tips

AFL 2019 Round 16
AFL Season 2019 Round 16

Hawthorn Hawks vs Collingwood Magpies – July 05

Tip – The Magpies just keep winning, so eventually they must be due for a loss. As wobbly as the Magpies have been in recent weeks, they’ve always found a way to win and we expect that trend to continue with the Hawks on the receiving end this time around.

Essendon Bombers vs Sydney Swans – July 06

Tip – Visiting the Bombers at the MCG is a great test for this rejuvenated Sydney team. With both teams looking to keep their slender chances of Finals Footy alive, we like the hometown Essendon team to come away with the victory.

Gold Coast Suns vs Richmond Tigers – July 06

Tip – This match-up looms as yet another danger game for the underperforming Richmond Tigers. The Suns have shocked quite a few teams with their quality (particularly at home) this season. The Suns are worth a dollar or two for the upset, but the real experts are putting their cash on the Tigers. Your call, or why not do both?

Adelaide Crows vs Port Adelaide Power – July 06

Tip – The latest version of the Adelaide Showdown finds both the Power and the Crows entrenched in the Top 8 and both in excellent form. Take the Crows to win the showdown as the have the better head-to-head record in these fantastic South Australian derby matches.

Western Bulldogs vs Geelong Cats – July 06

Tip – Are the wheels beginning to fall of the Geelong bus just ever so slightly? The Cats have not been at their imperious best of late, but may just do enough to win against the Bulldogs.

Fremantle Dockers vs West Coast Eagles – July 06

Tip – The WA Derby game almost always produces a close march regardless of where the two teams sit on the ladder. We’re predicting a slender victory to the Eagles as they have a Top 4 spot to consolidate – there is simply more on the line for them.

Carlton Blues vs Melbourne Demons – July 07

Tip – The curious scheduling of this match at the MCG plays into the Demons hands a little. Look for the Demons to express themselves in front of their fans to record a victory over Carlton on Sunday afternoon.

North Melbourne Kangaroos vs St Kilda Saints – July 07

Tip – The Kangas just love playing at their ‘second home’ in Tasmania and should be too good for the Saints in Hobart.

Tip – What a great game to close out Round 16 with both the Giants and Lions in superb touch. In what should be an entertaining clash, expect the home team Giants to snatch a narrow win – Happy Punting Everyone!
