AFL 2019 – Round 23 – Betting tips, Odds and Predictions

AFL 2019 Round 23
AFL Season 2019 Round 23

Collingwood Magpies vs Essendon Bombers – August 23

Tip – A humdinger of a match with a huge bearing on the Top 8 begins Round 23 action – the Bombers and the Magpies at the ‘G’.

The Magpies are motivated to show last years finals run wasn’t a fluke, while the Bombers have been good, but have struggled against the very best teams in 2019 – Collingwood should win.

Sydney Swans v St Kilda Saints – August 24

Tip – The Swans look to close out the 2019 season with plenty to look forward in 2020 from the young players blooded this season.

Saint Kilda are no mugs either, however, we like the young Swans to perform at home here.

North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Melbourne Demons – August 24

Tip – Maybe it’s appropriate that both the Kangaroos and Melbourne finish their years away from their hometown bases to do battle in Hobart. Both teams will be very disappointed with their season.

We like North Melbourne to win in Hobart with their better knowledge of playing footy on this ground.

BET ON THE KANGAROOS WITH BETSTAR

Geelong Cats vs Carlton Blues – August 24

Tip – This match could be much closer than it appears on paper with the Blues actually in better form than finals-bound Geelong in recent weeks.

The Cats should win, but expect them to pushed hard by Carlton, who must be wishing that the 2020 season starts tomorrow.

BET ON THE CATS WITH BETSTAR

Gold Coast Suns vs GWS Giants – August 24

Tip – Can we expect this match to follow a familiar formula to much of 2019 with the Suns providing brave but ultimately futile resistance?

The short answer to that question is ‘yes’ as the Giants stretch their legs and keep plenty of energy in store for the finals.

BET ON THE GIANTS WITH BETSTAR

West Coast Eagles vs Hawthorn Hawks – August 24

Tip – The Eagles host Hawthorn with a tough encounter expected that should be a great test for the finals-bound Westerners ahead of September footy.

The Hawks should go toe-to-toe with Eagles for a half or three quarters of footy, however, expect the Eagles to change gears and ease away to win in the end.

BET ON THE EAGLES WITH BETSTAR

Western Bulldogs vs Adelaide Crows – August 25

Tip – Can Tex Walker lead his Crows team into finals football or will the league’s best player, Marcus Bontempelli, assist the Bulldogs to deny Adelaide?

Expect the Bulldogs to be up for this one and have a great win over the Crows in front of their travelling fans.

BET ON THE BULLDOGS WITH BETSTAR

Richmond Tigers vs Brisbane Lions – August 25

Tip – The young Brisbane Lions are good, very good. However, are they good enough to deny the Tigers from running rampant at the MCG in front of 90 000 Richmond fans?

Perhaps not, but the experience should have Brisbane ready for finals footy in Melbourne where the result could potentially be overturned.

BET ON THE TIGERS WITH BETSTAR

Port Adelaide Power vs Fremantle Dockers – August 25

Tip – The Power have slipped in and out of the Top 8 on many occasions this year, and now it all comes down to this.

Other results will need to fall their way for Port Adelaide to make the 8, but we think that the Power will do their part and defeat the Dockers.
