Port Adelaide vs Richmond Betting Tips

Adelaide Oval, Friday 9th April 7.50pm (AEST)

What a game it was last season in the first preliminary final. Richmond got the better of the Power on that night but Port Adelaide will be hunting revenge when they meet again from 7.50pm on Friday night.

Match Prediction

The Power looked solid trough the opening two rounds of the season with wins over North Melbourne and Essendon. They had the tough task of travelling west to take on the Eagles in Round 3 and were handled pretty comfortably to the tune of 37 points.

The Tigers have had pretty much the same start to the season. They recorded good wins over Carlton and Hawthorn in the first two rounds but were outplayed by the Sydney Swans in Round 3, losing by 45 points

The Power have a really good looking injury list at the moment with only Tom Rockliff, Riley Bonner and Tyson Goldsack remain out of their potential best 22 currently. The Tigers, on the other hand, are without a bunch of best 22 players in the likes of Dion Prestia, Kamdyn MacIntosh, Ivan Soldo, Sydney Stack and Nick Vlaustin.

The Power captured an excellent win over the Tigers at home in Round 11 last season by 21 points in front of a reduced crowed. More fans will be in the stands this week, which should favour the Power and their injury list is certainly promising compared to that of the Tigers.

The Power start as slight 8.5 point favourites and I’m leaning towards them at that line. They have won five of their last 10 games against the Tigers and in those five wins, the average margin has been 33 points.

Power -8.5 (1.5 Units)


Power Prop

Ryan Burton has been solid off half back for the Power this season, racking up 19, 17 and 21 disposals in his three games so far. Averaged 19.69 touches per game in his last season for the Power with full length quarters. Good vale to surpass the 20 touch mark this week.

Burton 20+ Disp.


Tigers Prop

The Tigers will have two debutants out on the ground on Friday night, one of them being smooth moving defender Rhyan Mansell. This is a high value prop bet here but I like the value of the debutant to rack up 20+ touches in his first game. Mansell could get some of the kick in duties and he should get plenty of handball receivers off half back.

Mansell 20+ Disp.
