AFL Round 21 Sunday Betting Tips

St Kilda Saints vs Fremantle Dockers (1:10pm, Marvel)

The Saints were brave with their effort against the Crows in Adelaide last weekend, but eventually went down by 22 points. They fought hard all game and seem to be playing for each other a lot more under caretaker coach Brett Ratten.

The Dockers were one of the best performing teams in Round 20 when they proved too strong at home for the top of the table Cats. It was an impressive win by the Dockers and one that keep their finals hopes alive... Just.

This match certainly won’t break any crowd attendance records, but it could prove to be a telling fixture for the Dockers. They absolutely must win to keep their finals hopes alive and we believe they’re up for the challenge.

Richmond Tigers vs Carlton Blues (3:20pm, MCG)

The Tigers have stormed into flag favouritism on the back of some blistering form in the second half of the season. They’ve now won six matches in a row by 4+ goals and have a great opportunity to make it seven in a row when they host the 16th placed Blues.

The Blues bubble finally burst last weekend after three fantastic wins in a row. It was the reigning premier West Coast Eagles that proved to be the fun police, defeating the Blues by a comfortable 24 points at Marvel Stadium.

The Blues have been brave under David Teague, but we feel this may well be the week where they get blown out of the water. The Tigers are a far stronger team all over the field and will be motivated to win and stay in the top four. 

 

West Coast Eagles vs Adelaide Crows (5:20pm, OS)

The Eagles dealt with a potential danger game against the Blues with absolute class last weekend. They fought off a determined challenger to register a 24 point win, and more importantly, retain a top two spot on the ladder. The Eagles haven’t quite hit the heights they reached in their 2018 campaign, but they’re certainly building.

Likewise, the Crows avoided a potential upset loss in their Round 20 fixture when they defeated a dangerous Saints outfit by 22 points. The Crows are now faced with one of the toughest runs home, meaning every fixture is vitally important to their top eight aspirations.

While the Crows will be determined to win this match and retain a top eight spot, the Eagles will be equally motivated to win to stay inside the top two. In a match of such importance, we’ll be taking the classier team in the Eagles to get the job done.
