Only two rounds remain in the AFLW regular season and that should see some close contests in the Round 6 action as teams are still vying for the all important spots in the finals! We take a look at all the Round 6 action and give our betting tips below.
The Geelong Cats are currently leading Conference B after consecutive victories and they'll face an equally desperate Fremantle Dockers side on Saturday afternoon. Geelong made Brisbane look pretty average last week as they kicked 5.5 and conceded just 8 points. They're undefeated at Kardina Park thus far in their 2 games at this venue and enjoy playing in front the Geelong faithful. Meanwhile, Fremantle is 3rd in the stronger Conference A but sit on equal points with the top sides. So the stakes cannot be higher as they look to reach the AFLW finals for the first time. Games involving the Dockers have been high scoring this year as they rank 2nd in AFLW for points scored. But also allow the 2nd most points per game. So that should see a close contest with the Cats in good enough scoring form to compete with the Dockers. Cats are 2-0 ATS at home and they look a good bet at +9.5.
The Kangaroos winning streak is over after they were no match for the Crows last week in a 64-29 defeat. However, they get a good opportunity to rebound against the lowly Magpies. North is still 2nd in Conference A and with the Dockers sitting on equal points, this is really a huge game for North. In the end, Collingwood doesn't have enough points in them to beat the Roos considering they've kicked just 14 total goals thus far. However, the line for this game is currently set fairly too high at 23.5 points and I'd suggest not betting on this game.
The Bulldogs and Demons enjoy a good rivalry in AFLW which should see an interesting contest on Saturday night. It's been a disappointing season for the Bulldogs after winning the title in 2018. They've struggled with injuries and personnel changes have hit them hard. Melbourne is still a chance for the finals in Conference A as they sit one win behind the top three. Last week, they were too strong for the Giants in a 57-18 win and I can see them taking down the Dogs. The team from West is the 9th best scoring team in AFLW and I don't see them scoring enough points to get near Melbourne. The Dees have scored 50+ in 3 games this season and should enjoy the friendly scoring conditions at Docklands.
Adelaide made a statement in Round 5 as they smashed the previously undefeated Kangaroos by 35 points. In 3 straight weeks, the Crows have scored over 60 points and they're easily the best scoring team in AFLW. Their forward line is looking scary with the likes of Erin Phillips absolutely on fire. GWS really need to win this or it's pretty much season over in Conference B. They're coming off a disappointing performance against the Demons as conceded 57 points in a 39 point loss. At the moment, it's hard to see the Giants defence coping with the likely ball movement the Crows will employ. For example, Adelaide has a total of 189 Inside 50s (easily 1st in AFLW) and the Giants are ranked 7th with 127. The line is still fairly risky and the safe bet looks to be the Crows by 1-39. Of all the AFLW games this season, only one has been decided by over 39 points.
This is a huge clash at Ikon Park as the 2-3 Blues take on the 2-3 Lions. Both sides are fighting for a finals spot in Conference B and that makes this a high stakes contest. Carlton returned to the winners' list last week as they downed Collingwood by 5 points. Brisbane is coming off a poor 35-8 loss against Geelong and will play in Melbourne for the second straight week. Despite home-field advantage for the Blues, they rarely smash teams and that should see a close affair this Sunday. Over the last 2 weeks, Carlton has kicked 5 goals and 18 behinds. So inaccuracy should keep the Lions alive. The odds don't really show a favourite and that opens up an opportunity to bet on either team by 15 or less. Carlton is 3-1 against this bet in their last 4 games and hopefully, Brisbane finds form with their season on the line.
