AFL 2021 Round 2
AFL 2021 – Round 2

AFL 2021 Round 2 action is highlighted by the traditional Blues-Magpies derby & the Cats-Lions blockbuster in Geelong. We scour Australia’s top bookmakers (all accessible with the best betting apps ) to deliver you all the best AFL Round 2 betting markets. (All odds subject to change).

Carlton Blues vs Collingwood Magpies

March 25 – Melbourne Cricket Ground – 7.20pm

Traditional rivals battling out at the G is everything we missed about footy in 2020. The Blues & Magpies were both first-round losers, but arguably, the Blues looked the better of the two teams, but the Magpies have more improvement to make.

‘Pies champion Darcy Moore is in a league of his own and if Collingwood can find the magic trick to coax ruckman Brodie Grundy back to his best, the ‘Pies may sneak away for a close win over Carlton.

Bet on the Magpies to Win – $1.76

Geelong Cats vs Brisbane Lions

March 26 – Kardinia Park – Geelong – 7.20pm

If this match were being played a neutral territory, we might be tipping a Lions win.
As good as the young Lions have become over the last two seasons, even the very best teams in footy struggle to win in Geelong.
Look for Jeremy Cameron to lead the much-vaunted Geelong forward line to victory fed by quality ball from the dynamic Cats midfield.

Bet on the Cats to Win – $1.57

Sydney Swans vs Adelaide Crows

March 27 – Sydney Cricket Ground – 1.45pm

While the Adelaide Crows improved a lot toward the backend of 2021 and impressed in their upset win of the Cats in Round 1, arguably the young Swans were even better in upsetting the Brisbane Lions at home.

Swans’ coach John Longmire is a master at getting a lot of young players, and those youngsters may prove the difference at the SCG this coming Saturday afternoon.

Bet on Sydney to Win – $1.50

Port Adelaide Power vs Essendon Bombers

March 27 – Adelaide Oval – 4.35pm

After having moments of improvement in Round 1, the Bombers let slip the unlosable after conceding a 40-point lead to lose by a solitary point to the Hawks.

The Power will not be generous or feel even a little bit sorry for Essendon and they should win comfortably in front of their home fans in Adelaide.

Bet on Port Adelaide to Win – $1.17

St Kilda Saints vs Melbourne Demons

March 27 – Marvel Stadium – Melbourne – 7.25pm

This feels like a close game set between the Saints & Demons and the odds reflect. The Saints lost what they should have won against GWS last week, while the Demons will be better this week after accounting for the Dockers in Round 1.
It could be close one with an intriguing midfield battle set to decide it. The Saints will be a tougher prospect for Melbourne than Fremantle.

Bet on the Saints to Win – $1.66

Gold Coast Suns vs North Melbourne Kangaroos

March 27 – Metricon Stadium – Carrara – Gold Coast – 8.10pm

Tipped by many experts to be potential Wooden Spooners in 2021, the Kangaroos were a lot better than expected despite being well-beaten by the Power in Round 1.

The Suns on the other hand, pushed the West Coast Eagles all the way last week in Perth and appear to be the real deal in 2021, although the outcome of the knee injury to young superstar Matt Rowell.

Bet on the Suns to Win – $1.35

Hawthorn Hawks vs Richmond Tigers

March 28 – Melbourne Cricket Ground – 1.10pm

The Hawks look poised to strike with the September specialist Tigers usually slow out of the blocks to start the season despite their defeat of Carlton last week. The strength of the comeback against the Bombers last week will give Hawthorn confidence they can pull off the impossible.
The Tigers, just like last week, may just do enough to win without raising a sweat until it really matters in the final quarter.

Bet on the Richmond Tigers to Win – $1.17

Western Bulldogs vs West Coast Eagles

March 28 – Marvel Stadium – Melbourne – 3.20pm

After crossing the Nullabor for their clash with the Bulldogs, the Eagles will need to be at their very best if they are to walk away from Marvel Stadium with the 4 points. The Dogs are tough to beat at Marvel Stadium and could prove to be too hot for Eagles here.
Eagles betting fans can look to PlayUp for great odds at the line, which may be their best chance for a betting win on their team at +6.5-points @ $1.91 after the tough clash with the Suns last week.

Bet on the Bulldogs to Win – $1.62

Fremantle Dockers vs GWS Giants

March 28 – Optus Stadium – Perth – 6.10pm

The Dockers welcome the Giants to Perth with Fremantle always a 4 or 5 goal better team when playing at home. For their part, the Giants were extremely tough in defeating the much-vaunted Saints last week.
However, with a full house of parochial West Australians screaming for their home team, look for Fremantle to pull away for a win in the close stages.

Bet on the Dockers to Win – $1.75
