2021 AFL Round 5: Adelaide vs Fremantle Preview & Betting Tips

April 17th 2021, 1:56pm, By: Billy Bestford

AFL Crows vs Dockers Betting Tips

We head to Adelaide Oval to kick off Sunday’s triple header of AFL action where the Crows will host the Dockers in a match which looks set up to be a close one. With these sides sitting 7th and 9th on the ladder respectively, you can expect this one to come right down to the wire.

Match Prediction

History does not bode well for the visiting side here, with Fremantle losing their last 7 matches at the Adelaide Oval. Historically this venue has always been a tough one for opposition sides to visit and this afternoon will be no different.

The Crows were good last week and thumped a struggling North Melbourne side while Fremantle were also strong winners last week, knocking off the Hawks over in WA. These two teams have had similar starts to the season winning a couple and losing a couple but they now both look like they’re starting to hit their straps.

The form of Tex Walker has been immense for the Crows and he continues to kick goal after goal each week. Nat Fyfe returned last week to star for his side with 30 touches and his performances are crucial to Fremantle’s winning chances each week. Both these men will need to be at their best for their side. I think the Crows will scrape through in a tight one, with the support of a passionate home crowd going to play it’s part. They’ve won four of their last five matches at the Adelaide Oval by 1-39.

Crows 1-39 (1 Unit)


Crows Prop

As mentioned earlier, Tex Walker has rediscovered some of the form which made him one of the best forwards in the competition a few years ago. He looks a rejuvenated player and that is brilliant for both Adelaide and the AFL as a whole. When he is in this kind of form there aren’t many defenders who can match up on him, and I certainly don’t think Freo have anyone who can today.  I’m expecting big Tex to have a massive game and have gone for some extra value for him to kick a bag full.

Walker 4+ Goals


Dockers Prop

Michael Walters has only played the two games so far this season but has kicked 3 goals already. We know the quality he can have up front and last week he showed glimpses that he could be back near his best. He actually has a very good record away from home, kicking 2 or more goals in his last three matches away from WA. I’m banking on him making that four straight matches here today.

Walters 2+ Goals
