Tip – Melbourne have been a much better side of late, and their parochial fan base have been voicing their approval.
Meanwhile, Sydney’s young team have been showing signs of promise, however, the long season seems to be having a draining effect on their young bodies. Melbourne should be able to take advantage.
BET ON THE DEMONS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – Two teams that started the season so badly that the Blues and Saints both eventually lost their coaches have returned to better form now with the end of the season in sight.
Carlton are giving their long-suffering fans a lot to look forward to in 2020 and should prove slightly too good for the Saints here.
BET ON CARLTON WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The young Lions welcome the Cats to Brisbane and are looking to show who are real Premiership favourites.
Geelong have quite simply looked awful in recent weeks and this trip to the Gabba is no easy task – we like Brisbane to put the Cats to the sword here.
BET ON THE LIONS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The Crows and the Magpies reach this Adelaide Oval both in terrible form. It really could be a case of which of the two teams is the ‘least bad’.
We’re sticking with the Magpies to win here just to put a little glue back on their Top 8 foundations. The Crows could be ‘gone’ in 2019.
BET ON THE MAGPIES WITH BETSTAR
Tip – It’s a very tricky match to predict, with both teams yo-yo-ing from great form to terrible and back again week-after-week.
The Power were great at Marvel Stadium a fortnight ago against the Bombers and on the back of that good away win, we’ll tip them here to defeat North Melbourne.
BET ON PORT ADELAIDE WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The up-and-down Essendon Bombers arrive in Perth with their place in the Top 8 hanging by a thread.
Look for the hometown Fremantle Dockers to unravel that hanging thread in defeating Essendon and resurrect their own Top 8 chances.
BET ON THE DOCKERS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The Tigers new role as AFL Premiership favourites gets put to the acid test against the reigning Premiers at their beloved MCG.
The Tigers fans will pack the ground to the rafters and we don’t believe that the Eagles will be able to withstand that sort of Tigers pressure.
BET ON THE TIGERS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The Giants will appreciate a tough match against a quality Bulldogs team as superb preparation for finals and cement their ladder position.
At the end of the day, the Western Bulldogs may not quite have the class to go all the way with the Giants (who should win), but we’re predicting a much closer match than many of the betting sites believe.
BET ON THE GIANTS WITH BETSTAR
Tip – The young Suns team may well take out the Wooden Spoon, but they have much more competitive than the stats show.
Expect that trend to continue at Marvel Stadium as the Suns put in a brave effort, but will eventually fall short against a Hawks team who must win to stand any hope of finals footy.
