2024 AFL Round 8 Tips

Thursday May 2nd

Crows vs Power

What an intriguing Showdown this will be to kick off Round 8. The Crows are coming off a big win against the Kangaroos, while the Power managed to see off the Saints. A growing Power injury list also levels the playing field a touch.

Adelaide vs Port Adelaide Betting Tips


Friday May 3rd

Blues vs Magpies

The Blues couldn't match it with the undefeated Cats last weekend and will need to up the ante this week if they're to bounce back against the reigning premiers. Can the Magpies extend their unbeaten run to five?

Carlton vs Collingwood Betting Tips


Saturday May 4th

Swans vs Giants

The Swans demolished a listless Hawks side last weekend but will face a much tougher test in Round 8 against their crosstown rivals, the Giants. This should be a cracker!

Sydney vs GWS Betting Tips


Saints vs Kangaroos

The Saints' season is beginning to slip away at 2-5 and an easy kill against the Kangaroos has seemingly come at a perfect time. Surely they get back on the winners list here?

St Kilda vs North Melbourne Betting Tips


Demons vs Cats

The Demons weren't at their best against the Tigers but still ran away comfortable winners. They'll need to lift their performance by quite a bit this weekend if they're to have any chance of knocking over the unblemished Cats.

Melbourne vs Geelong Betting Tips


Eagles vs Bombers

The Eagles couldn't make it three on the spin in Round 7 when they fell to the Suns, but it was another promising performance. Meanwhile, the Bombers continued their hot form against the Magpies on Anzac Day.

West Coast vs Essendon Betting Tips


Sunday May 5th

Tigers vs Dockers

The Tigers fought hard against the Demons on Anzac Day Eve but couldn't quite maintain the rage in the second half. They now face a Dockers side that has already lost to one of the bottom four clubs in 2024.

Richmond vs Fremantle Betting Tips


Bulldogs vs Hawks

The Bulldogs' inconsistencies continued in Round 7 when they lost to a seemingly hungrier Dockers side. However, they're the heavy favourites to bounce straight back onto the winners list this weekend when they play host to the Hawks.

Western Bulldogs vs Hawthorn Betting Tips


Lions vs Suns

To close out an exciting Round 8 we have an epic QClash between the Lions and the Suns. Interestingly, it's the Suns who enter this edition as the team in the better form, such has been the poor start of the Lions in 2024.

Brisbane vs Gold Coast Betting Tips
