Round 3 of the AFLW season proves to be another exciting round of action and we’ve got you covered with our betting tips for the week.
The Kangaroos and Bulldogs will clash on Friday night in an important Conference A matchup. Both sides are undefeated after two rounds and sit atop the Conference. North has played in two comfortable wins over the Blues and Giants so far. They also overcame a number of storm delays last week in Sydney and now travel back to Tasmania for the 2nd time this season. The Bulldogs have beaten the Cats by 3 goals and the Crows by a point in round 1. But the bookies are all over the Roos at around $1.50 and I think their forward line is going to be a test for the Dogs. They're averaging 50 points per game already and while they've only played two fairly poor defensive sides, most teams are going to struggle against this talented squad. It's also hard to see the Bulldogs keeping up with them in their forward line. They're ranked 9th in the league for inside 50s and have only scored 7 total goals in 2 games. So until North slow down their scoring, we'll keep backing them at the line.
Saturday afternoon footy will see the Giants and Blues both desperate for a win. Each side is 0-2 on the season and a loss could spell the end to their 2019 campaign already. GWS have played in two tough losses against the Lions and Kangaroos. So I'd expect them to handle the poor Blues in Blacktown. Much like last year, Carlton is struggling to keep points off the scoreboard as they rank last in AFLW with 109 points allowed in 2 games. So while the Giants haven't looked overly impressive this year, they have played two tough games and will be playing on their home turf. They need to win this for their hopes of playing finals and that should be enough motivation.
The surprising Dockers will get a chance for 3 straight victories when they host the Magpies on Saturday. Fremantle has found their attacking spark after two impressive victories. They knocked off the Demons in Melbourne then convincing beat the Lions by 27 points last week. They're easily the best scoring team in the league at the moment and rank 2nd for inside 50s. They also rank #1 for marks inside 50 and their contested ball numbers are solid. So this is looking like a fairly comfortable win for the home side on paper. Collingwood is 0-2 and have found the going tough with a number of players missing. They were kept to just 1 goal last week and rank dead last in AFLW for points scored/goals kicked. Getting the ball inside 50 has been a major issue as well. So a trip to Fremantle Oval couldn't come at a worse time and I don't see the Magpies defence stopping the Dockers on their way to a 3-0 record.
Sunday's action begins with an inter-conference matchup between the Crows and Cats. Both sides have a 1-1 record and that means the stakes are high for a potential 2-1 start to the season. Geelong has been hit hard by injury already with Nina Morrison doing her ACL. They battled against the Bulldogs last week but were probably missing the talent to take down last year's premiers. The good news is they still sit 2nd in the weaker Conference B despite scoring 40 points in 2 games. Adelaide's forward line woes from Round 1 (1.11), looked over as they scored 57 points in a 13 point win over the Blues last week. So if they can kick straight again, the Crows should comfortably win this clash. They're the number 1 side in AFLW for inside 50s and should enjoy home field advantage at Norwood Oval. Geelong is travelling interstate for the first time and I think they'll struggle to compete with the Crows.
The final game of the round should be one to watch as the Lions take on the Demons at Hickey Park. Brisbane is returning from a disappointing trip to Perth as the Dockers beat them by 27 points. So they'll be keen to get their season back on track. Jess Wuetschner has been the star so far with 5 total goals in 2 games. Melbourne was too good for the Magpies last week as they won by 17 points. It could have been more had they kicked accurately (3.8). So they're heading to QLD with confidence and they really need to win this as they sit at the bottom of Conference A. These two sides are very similar and that should see either team win this by 15 points. This shows in the odds with no real favourite at the moment. They also met last season and there was just a 6 point margin between the two sides.
