7:20pm Melbourne Demons vs Brisbane Lions @ MCG
It hasn’t been smooth sailing for the Melbourne Demons of late but the one-week break could have worked wonders.
They started the season on fire and it looked like a repeat was on the cards, but they haven’t played well and Brisbane could capitalise.
There is only 5.5 points between them in betting markets and we’re sticking with Melbourne, which is desperate to get back to its best.
Betting tip: Melbourne Demons @ $1.70 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Demons by 6
7:00pm Western Bulldogs vs Hawthorn Hawks @ Marvel Stadium
The Western Bulldogs were at their best when beating GWS last week and that form could carry over to Round 15.
It was a dominating performance, and although the Hawks have been solid this season, we expect the Bulldogs to get the job done at home.
Punters get a fair line of –14.5 and we see the Bulldogs racking up a 20-point victory.
Betting tip: Western Bulldogs –14.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes

8:40pm West Coast Eagles vs Essendon Bombers @ Optus Stadium
The West Coast Eagles played well against Geelong last week but it’s another loss and we can’t back them to beat the Essendon Bombers.
We were impressed with what the Bombers did against St Kilda last week in scoring a 107-72 victory, so they’re worth following.
Consistency has been tough to come by for the Eagles and Bombers, but be confident with the Bombers.
Betting tip: Essendon Bombers –15.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes

1:45pm Carlton Blues vs Fremantle Dockers @ Marvel Stadium
Carlton and Fremantle are having improved seasons but we have loved what the Dockers have offered so far.
We think they’re a great chance to win the AFL Premiership and we thought they would be shorter in betting markets against Carlton, which comes off a loss to Richmond.
Take the Dockers at $1.77, which is an excellent price.
Betting tip: Fremantle Dockers @ $1.77 Bet @ Ladbrokes

4:35pm Geelong Cats vs Richmond Tigers @ MCG
There isn’t much between the Geelong Cats and Richmond Tigers in betting markets, but we give the slight edge to the Tigers.
They have been playing well and they have got their confidence levels back, so they’re still a threat to win the overall title.
Geelong isn’t doing much wrong either, but the bookmakers agree that the Tigers could sneak out a win.
Betting tip: Richmond Tigers @ $1.81 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Tigers by 10
7:25pm Sydney Swans vs St Kilda Saints @ SCG
We couldn’t make much of the Sydney Swans effort when losing to Port Adelaide 82-59 last week, which was a poor effort.
Despite the disappointing result, they are the firm favourites to beat the St Kilda Saints, who were soundly beaten by Essendon in Round 14.
Based on their recent form, we’re going with the Swans. They have more upside and there is market confidence with the favourites.
Betting tip: Sydney Swans –15.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Swans by 22
1:10pm North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Adelaide Crows @ Blundstone Arena
Playing the Kangaroos gives teams a great chance to climb the leaderboard, so the Adelaide Crows should take advantage.
The Crows couldn’t overcome the impressive Gold Coast Suns last week but they played well enough to be the hot favourites against the Kangaroos.
There is 25.5 points between them, which could be too much for the Crows. They should win but we’re picking by around 20 points.
Betting tip: North Melbourne Kangaroos +25.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Crows by 20
3:20pm Collingwood Magpies vs GWS Giants @ MCG
Ready to fire coming off a bye week are the Collingwood Magpies, who have started to find their best form.
The Magpies are rising up the AFL leaderboard and they have been well-backed to beat the Giants, who lost to the Western Bulldogs last week.
Given their momentum, we’re backing the Magpies to get it done.
Betting tip: Collingwood Magpies –15.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
Magpies by 22
4:10pm Port Adelaide Power vs Gold Coast Suns @ Adelaide Oval
We thought the Port Adelaide Power would rebound last week and they scored a classy win over the Sydney Swans.
We think they can kick on with it against the Gold Coast Suns, who are capable of producing the upset, but backing the home team is the way to go.
The Power are –16.5 favourites and that’s achievable with home ground advantage.
Betting tip: Port Adelaide Power –16.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Ladbrokes
