2021 AFL Round 5: Tips, Predictions & Betting Odds

April 12th 2021, 4:00pm, By: admin

AFL Round 5 Betting Tips

There are some massive games coming up in Round 5 of the AFL season! The round kicks off on Thursday night with the revived St Kilda Saints hosting the Richmond Tigers in the annual 'Maddie's Match'. Friday night sees the Eagles and Magpies both looking to bounce back from losses on the weekend in what will no doubt be a heated match. The highlights of the weekend include the Battle of the Bridge between Sydney and GWS on Saturday afternoon followed by the Lions taking on the Bombers in the marquee Saturday night clash. 

Before You Bet and followers went 4/9 in Round 4 betting tips but due to the stakes in some of the plays that we were more confident in, we actually finished the round 3.59 units in profit! The North Melbourne vs Adelaide game where we had 1.5 units on the Crows to win by 40+ at $3.30 was the highlight of the betting weekend after Harry Schoenberg kicked a goal in the dying seconds to lift the Crows to a 41 point win. We are now 14.97 units up in the 2021 season!

2021 AFL Round 5 Tips

(Odds correct as of Monday, April 12th)

Thursday April 15th 

saints vs tigers

The Saints season was a couple of minutes away from being done and dusted before they went on a 54-1 run to walk over the Eagles and claim a historic victory in Round 4. They have another super tough task on Thursday night as they square off against the Tigers in the Round 4 opener. 


Friday April 16th

eagles vs pies

The Eagles and Magpies will both be looking to bounce back from disappointing losses in round 4 to the Saints and Giants respectively. This rivalry has had some extremely heated games over the past few years and this one promises to be another one from Optus Stadium on Friday night. 


swans vs gws

The first Battle of the Bridge will take place on Saturday afternoon as the Swans host the Giants from the SCG. The Swans are 4-0 in season 2021 after an impressive win over Essendon on Thursday night and come up against a Giants side that kick-started their season with their first win in Round 4. 


Saturday April 17th

western bulldogs vs gold coast

The Dogs sit atop the AFL ladder with a 4-0 record after another really impressive win over the Lions in Ballarat on Saturday. They have only really been challenged once this season and are flying up the board in the premierhsip markets. They will start as heavy favourites at Marvel Stadium against the Suns on Saturday night. 


Blues vs PA

The Blues have won two games on the trot and will face off against Port Adelaide in what should be an interesting clash on Saturday night. Port Adelaide are coming off a defining win over Richmond in Round 4 and they are currently the best placed of all the 3-1 teams so far in 2021. 


Lions vs Essendon

The Lions and Bombers are both 1-3 on the season and although there is a long way to go in 2021, it almost feels like both of their seasons are on the line when the two meet at the Gabba on Saturday night. The Lions start as strong favourites, can Essendon take another scalp?


Sunday April 18th

Crows vs Dockers

The Crows looked shakey at times against the Roos throughout the first few quarters but after HT they ran over the top of their opponents to go to 3-1 on the season. They have another winnable game coming up as they face the Dockers on Sunday afternoon in the early game. 


Hawks vs Dees

The Demons are rolling so far in season 2021. They recorded a brilliant win over the Cats on Sunday to move to 4-0 and 2nd on the ladder. They will start as heavy favourites against the Hawks on Sunday afternoon, who are 17th on the ladder, having lost three straight games. 


cats vs roos

$15.00 starting price for the Roos on Sunday afternoon at GMHBA Stadium against the Cats and it still doesnt feel high enough. The Cats will certainly win this one against the worst team in the league, the only question is, by how much?
