AFL 2021 Round 4 Predictions Odds, Preview & Tips

AFL 2021 Round 4
AFL 2021 Round 4

Footy is well and truly back, with the first three rounds of the 2021 AFL season providing some of the most exciting football we’ve seen in years. The play has been exciting and high-quality, and already we’ve been treated to numerous grandstand finishes and upsets. Round 4 sees a number of matchups between potential contenders and even more between some of the competitions most intriguing sides, and we’ve previewed it all for you below.

Sydney Swans vs Essendon Bombers

April 8, 7.20pm, SCG

The Swans are the surprise packet of 2021 to date, having won all three games including a 45-point demolition of the reigning Premiers last weekend. If they play in the manner they have so far they should be able to dispose of the Bombers, though an upset 75-point win over the Saints makes Essendon tough to read. On their home ground though, we expect the Swans to be too strong.

Bet on the Swans to win @ $1.21

Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers

April 9, 7.50am, Adelaide Oval

The corresponding game last year was one of the matches of 2020 when the Power got up by three goals, but Richmond got their revenge with a tight win in the prelim. Both teams head into this one off disappointing losses following two strong wins to start the season, and in what should be a close and entertaining affair Port’s home ground advantage should see them avoid a second straight loss.

Bet on the Power to win @ $1.69

Western Bulldogs vs Brisbane Lions

April 10, 1.35pm, Mars Stadium

The Bulldogs look back to their best in 2021, with a deep and talented midfield helping lead them to an undefeated first three weeks of the season. They’ll have a tough task remaining that way against a Lions side coming off a stirring after-the-siren win last week, but with the game being played in Victoria they should win a close one.

Bet on the Bulldogs to win @ $1.57

St. Kilda Saints vs West Coast Eagles

April 10, 4.35pm, Marvel Stadium

The Saints were woeful last week, with a terrible performance against the Bombers resigning them to a 1-2 start. The Eagles, on the other hand, might have played themselves into form with a win against Port, and though they are a far better side at home we think they can get the job done against an out-of-form St. Kilda this weekend.

Bet on the Eagles to win @ $1.36

Gold Coast Suns vs Carlton Blues

April 10, 7.25pm, Metricon Stadium

Two young and improving sides meet when the Suns welcome the Blues to Metricon Stadium, and an intriguing contest should result. Both sides have won just one of their three games, but each has been respectable in defeat and solid in victory. Little separates the two on paper, but with the game being played on the Gold Coast we’ll back the Suns in a tight game.

Bet on the Suns to win @ $1.79

Collingwood Magpies vs GWS Giants

April 10, 7.25pm, MCG

The Pies snatched defeat from the jaws of victory last Thursday night, but they couldn’t have asked for a better time to play the Giants than this week. GWS have struggled immensely thus far in 2021, and with a growing injury list adding to their troubles it’s hard to see them winning this one.

Bet on the Magpies to win @ $1.26

North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Adelaide Crows

April 11, 1.10pm, Marvel Stadium

Last year this would have been a bottom-of-the-table clash, but the Crows appear to have left the Roos behind so far in 2021. North Melbourne have been awful while Adelaide are showing signs of life led by former skipper Tex Walker, and they can win their third of the year this Sunday.

Bet on the Crows to win @ $1.32

Melbourne Demons vs Geelong Cats

April 11, 3.20pm, MCG

This is an intriguing matchup, and not an easy one to pick. The Cats headed into the season deservedly as one of the Premiership favourites, but while they’ve won two of three they haven’t been convincing. The Demons, meanwhile, have found their mojo and were great last weekend. This should be tight, but the Cats have the class edge and can sneak over the line.

Bet on the Cats to win @ $1.75

Fremantle Dockers vs Hawthorn Hawks

April 11, 5.40pm, Optus Stadium

Both these teams are expected to finish closer to the bottom of the ladder than the top, but in a sign of the parity which exists across the competition at the moment, each of them is perfectly capable of playing good football. The Hawks have shown plenty and a win wouldn’t shock, but the Dockers are a far better side in Perth and should get the job done.

Bet on the Dockers to win @ $1.55
