AFL Round 2 Betting Tips

Opening Round and the official Round 1 are now in the books, and now it's time to turn our attention to Round 2 of the exciting 2024 AFL season. It all begins on Thursday night with what's now a very important clash for the defending premiers; the Magpies will take on the Saints at the MCG with both teams hunting their first win of the season. Friday night footy in Round 2 heads to Adelaide where the Crows will take on the Cats, while a three-game slate on Saturday and a three-game slate on Sunday will round out the weekend. Round 2 is also the first of four early bye rounds, and it will be Brisbane and Carlton who sit out this weekend.
