Tried our top rated bookmakers?
7:50pm Richmond Tigers vs Fremantle Dockers @ Marvel Stadium
The Richmond Tigers were embarrassed by the North Melbourne Kangaroos last week and that’s a tough loss to recover from.
Fremantle also suffered a loss to the Sydney Swans, but we can forgive that effort. We can’t forgive Richmond’s effort and we think it could lose again.
Take the Dockers to score a minor upset.
Betting tip: Fremantle Dockers @ $1.94 Bet @ Neds
Dockers by 5
1:45pm North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Hawthorn Hawks @ Blundstone Arena
Bookmakers are giving the North Melbourne Kangaroos some respect after their upset win over the Tigers, but the Hawks should get the win.
They looked good when beating the West Coast Eagles 102-77 last week and their winning form should continue against the Kangaroos.
Punters get a favourable line of 18.5 and the Hawks should score comfortably.
Betting tip: Hawthorn Hawks –18.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Neds

1:45pm Sydney Swans vs Adelaide Crows @ SCG
The Sydney Swans got their premiership hopes back on track with a quality win over Fremantle last week and they should dispatch the Crows on Saturday.
The Crows pushed the Collingwood Magpies to within five points last week but they’re tough to back on the road.
Confidence is with the Swans, who should cover the –34.5 line.
Betting tip: Sydney Swans –34.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Neds

4:35pm Port Adelaide Power vs Geelong Cats @ Adelaide Oval
It’s always tough to bet against the Port Adelaide Power at home, but the Geelong Cats are playing too well to ignore.
The Cats scored an important 85-55 win over Carlton last week and that win could be defining for their season.
We respect the Power’s ability to pull off wins at Adelaide Oval but the Cats are the stronger team and they should rack up another victory.
Betting tip: Geelong Cats –10.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Neds
Cats by 16
7:10pm Brisbane Lions vs Gold Coast Suns @ Gabba
There was plenty to like about how the Brisbane Lions got the better of the GWS Giants last week and that form should continue at home.
The Lions had been playing inconsistent footy but they’re back on track and the Suns played poorly against Essendon.
We think bookmakers are being generous with the –22.5 line and we’re locking in the Lions to score comfortably.
Betting tip: Brisbane Lions –22.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Neds
Lions by 30
7:25pm Western Bulldogs vs Melbourne Demons @ Marvel Stadium
The Melbourne Demons did enough to beat the Power last week but bookmakers are treating them with trepidation.
They are $1.52 to beat the Western Bulldogs, who looked good when beating St Kilda, but we think Melbourne is the better team.
Last year’s premiers could get back to their best on Saturday night and punters get a line worth snapping up with both hands.
Betting tip: Melbourne Demons –11.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Neds
Demons by 22
1:10pm Carlton Blues vs GWS Giants @ Marvel Stadium
We expect the Carlton Blues to bounce back to winning form after suffering a tough result against the Geelong Cats last week.
Facing the GWS Giants, who lost to the Brisbane Lions by 40 points, is a much easier task and the playoff-bound should hit back.
They have to cover a 24.5-point spread but we expect the Blues to be far too strong.
Betting tip: Carlton Blues –24.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Neds
Blues by 30
3:20pm Collingwood Magpies vs Essendon Bombers @ MCG
Essendon has been playing much better of late and it could pose a threat against the Collingwood Magpies.
The Magpies got the better of the Adelaide Crows last week but it was closer than expected. The Bombers put away the Suns with ease and they have confidence on their side.
We’re taking Essendon to come away with an upset result at the better-value odds.
Betting tip: Essendon Bombers @ $2.19 Bet @ Neds
Bombers by 10
4:40pm West Coast Eagles vs St Kilda Saints @ Optus Stadium
We don’t see much value in betting the West Coast Eagles at $3.17, so we’re taking the Saints.
St Kilda didn’t fully fire when losing to the Western Bulldogs last week but this is a much easier target and the Eagles have been awful.
Take the Saints to score an easy win to close Round 19.
Betting tip: St Kilda Saints –18.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ Neds
