2019 AFL: Round 10 Sunday Preview & Betting Tips

May 25th 2019, 10:27am, By: Jake Smit

Indigenous Round continues on Sunday with another three games on the card to wrap up AFL Round 10! It’s a slate that doesn’t exactly get the blood pumping at first glance, but all three fixtures have the potential to go down to the wire.

We preview all three games on the Round 10 Sunday slate and give our betting tips below!
 

AFL Round 10 Sunday Betting Tips

Melbourne Demons vs GWS Giants (MCG, 1:10pm AEST)

The Demons showed a bit more hunger and desire in their Round 9 clash with the Eagles, but it was all for no result as they went home 16-point losers. It’s been an absolute nightmare season for what everyone thought was an up and coming Demons list. As it stands, they’re 15thspot on the ladder with just three wins from nine fixtures. 

The Giants come into this off an absolute thrashing of the Blues in Round 9, defeating them by just shy of 100 points on their home deck. There were a whole host of Giants players that with huge stat lines on the day, none bigger than Lachie Whitfield however, who collected 40 touches and banged home three goals. Tim Taranto wasn’t too far behind him for best afield with his 38 touches and one goal, while Jeremy Finlayson had one of his best games with five majors.

The Demons showed a little bit of improvement in their attack on the contest last weekend, but they’ve still got plenty to do if they’re to trouble the Giants on Sunday. The Giants are playing like genuine flag contenders and we’ll be backing them in to win this one regardless of it being in Melbourne.

St Kilda Saints vs Carlton Blues (Marvel, 3:20pm AEST)

The Saints looked half a sniff of causing the upset of the round last weekend against the Magpies but would eventually run out of gas and lose by 41 points. It was a solid effort from the Saints for the most part, but they’re going to need more than a solid effort to stay in touch with the top eight. After a hot start, the Saints have now slipped down to 13thon the ladder and have a record below .500 for the first time this season (4-5).

The Blues were nothing short of deplorable in their performance against the Giants in Round 9 where they had just three scoring shots for the entire first half. Their effort and desire were absent for the full four quarters and results in a whopping 93-point loss. Apparently, the Blues leadership group held a players-only meeting during the week to get everything out on the table – time will tell just how effectively that’ll be on their performance.

Backing the Blues after their performance last week is just an impossible feat in our view. They’ve now won just three of their past 31 matches and each match tosses up more questions than answers. We’ll be taking the Saints to level up their season at 5-5 with a win over the Blues on Sunday.

Fremantle Dockers vs Brisbane Lions (OS, 5:20pm AEST)

The Dockers fell short in their attempt of a bounce back win against the Bombers in Round 9, losing by seven points in Melbourne. David Mundy continued his fabulous season with a goal to go along with his 34 touches and six tackles, although superstar Nat Fyfe was quieter than usual with just 24 disposals. That loss is now the third in a row for the Dockers who have fallen to ninth on the ladder with a 4-5 record.

The Lions pulled off another nail-biting win in Round 9 to continue their dream start to the 2019 season. They came up against an in-form Crows outfit that had won four on the spin, but they were able to hold their nerve in clutch situations to run home one-point winners in front of a big home crowd at the GABBA. Charlie Cameron had plenty of scoring opportunities and finished with three goals, while Lachie Neale furthered his Brownlow Medal credential with a 39-disposal performance.

The Dockers would’ve gone into this game as firm favourites if it was played a couple of weeks ago, but their loss of form and the inspired play of the young Lions has this as nearly an even money game. The Lions have certainly been better at home than they have on the road this season, but we’re expecting them to be too fast and too slick for the Dockers on the big field at Optus Stadium.
