AFL Round 15 Sunday Betting Tips

St Kilda Saints vs Richmond Tigers (1:10pm AEST, Marvel Stadium)

The Saints were deplorable at home to the Lions last weekend as they went down by 56 points. The long shining light was the play of second-gamer Nick Hind who bobbed up for three goals to go along with his 13 touches. The loss leaves the saints in 11thspot on the ladder with a season record of 6-7. 

The Tigers season has been a really tough one and by no fault of their own. They’ve just suffered non-stop injuries since the season commenced, which has put enormous pressure on their depth. Despite their struggles, they’ve still managed to win enough games to give themselves a chance of making finals if they can get it all together in the second half of the season. They’re currently sitting 10thon the ladder and hold a 7-6 record.

Very interesting match here with two out of form sides going head-to-head. The Tigers have had the wood over the Saints in recent times and will start favourites as a result. However, the Tigers are also injury depleted and have a much poorer record at Marvel Stadium compared to MCG. Given a 20-point head start, we like the Saints to cover.

Brisbane Lions vs Melbourne Demons (3:20pm AEST, GABBA)

The Lions were able to put a bad record in Melbourne behind them last weekend when they absolutely punished the Saints at Marvel Stadium. They put in a brilliant four quarter performance and were bounce back from a really poor loss to the Blues before their bye in Round 13. Dayne Zorko was really impressive with 28 touches and a goal, while Charlie Cameron was superb up forward with five majors. The Lions are now in sixth spot on the ladder with an 8-5 record.

The Demons recorded one of their best wins of the season last weekend when they downed the in-form Dockers at the MCG. They put together their first four quarter performance for the year and came out on top by 14 points. Tom McDonald played a huge role in the win with three goals and 28 touches, as did big Max Gawn with 20 touches, 46 hit-outs and one major.

Although the Demons found some much better form last time out in their win playing the Lions at the GABBA is a totally different beast. Expect the Lions to be far too strong and cover the line in the process.

Fremantle Dockers vs Carlton Blues (5:20pm AEST, Optus Stadium)

We mentioned above that the Dockers lost to the Demons last round, which was a bit of a surprise considering their recent form. Brad Hill was the standout Docker on the day with 31 disposals and a heap of second and third efforts throughout the day. Brandon Matera continued his strong season with another three goals, while Nat Fyfe was solid with 31 disposals. The Dockers remain in the eight despite the loss, coming into this weekend with a 7-6 record for the year.

The Blues had the bye in Round 14, which still wasn’t enough rest for superstar Patrick Cripps who will miss this match through injury. Prior to the bye they lost an absolute heartbreaker to the Bulldogs at Marvel Stadium. They were surging home late and looked the better side in the fourth quarter but were unable to overcome a big deficit to eventually go down by three points. It’s been a really tough season for the Blues to date with just two wins from 13 fixtures.

We’re expecting an absolute blood bath at Optus Stadium. The Dockers will be desperate to bounce back from a tough lost last weekend, while the struggling Blues will be without their best player. Happy to take the Dockers to cover their big line here.
