2024 AFL Opening Round Tips

Thursday March 7th 2024

Swans vs Demons

Season 2024 begins with a bang on Thursday night with the Swans and the Demons locking horns at the SCG. All eyes will be on the ruck battle with Brodie Grundy playing against ex-teammate Max Gawn! On top of that, James Jordon will be taking on his ex club as well, while Clayton Oliver is set to suit up after coming a long way in recent weeks. There's stories everywhere you look in this one and it should be a cracking way to get the season underway.

Sydney vs Melbourne Betting Tips


Friday March 8th 2024

Lions vs Blues

Friday night footy returns in 2024 with the Lions taking on the Blues at the Gabba! The Lions came heartbreakingly close to breaking their 20-year Premiership drought last season, while the Blues also made some huge strides towards featuring in the big dance. Both clubs will be expecting to secure another high finish this campaign, which will make for a juicy clash in Opening Round.

Brisbane vs Carlton Betting Tips


Saturday March 9th 2024

Suns vs Tigers

Another clash that will be a fascinating watch in Opening Round will take place on Saturday evening with the Suns playing hosts to the Tigers. 3x Premiership Coach Damien Hardwick will be trying to knock off the team he left a little over six months ago, while Adam Yze will be in charge of the Tigers for the first time. This should be a cracking way to get Saturday's double-header underway.

Gold Coast vs Richmond Betting Tips


Giants vs Magpies

A rematch from last year's Preliminary Finals will close out Opening Round in 2024, with the Giants welcoming the Magpies to Western Sydney. The Giants are one of the favourites to go all the way and secure their maiden flag this season, while the Magpies will clearly be around the mark again after winning the Premiership only a little over five months ago. This is one you simply cannot miss!
