2016 AFL Round 22 Betting

Just a couple of weeks left in the footy season for 2016 and that means a couple more chances to bag some winning AFL betting tips. We like the look of four games this weekend, starting with the Friday night blockbuster, so make sure to read on for our AFL Round 22 betting tips.

West Coast vs. Hawthorn (August 19, Domain)

What a way to start the weekend of footy! West Coast host Hawthorn at Subiaco in what is the rematch to last season’s premiership decider. The Eagles will surely be waving a ride of confidence after last week’s nail-biting win over Greater Western Sydney away from home. Nic Naitanui has added plenty to the Eagles’ line up since his return from injury and midfielder Luke Shuey was phenomenal against the Giants. With that being said, I feel as though the Hawks have a definite mental advantage over their opponents. They were great early on in the contest against North Melbourne last week before fading late. It is a tough one to tip but my heart and head both tell me to stick with Hawthorn in a close one.

Tip: Hawthorn by 1 – 39 ($2.45) at CrownBet

Richmond vs. St Kilda (August 20, MCG)

You have to be a tremendously brave man to back the Tigers in after last week’s collapse against Geelong. But something is telling me that Richmond will respond strongly and cause a slight upset on Saturday afternoon. Without taking the context into account, a four-point loss to Geelong is not a terrible result for a side in their position. Plus the Tigers have a good record against St Kilda and generally play well at the MCG.

Tip: Richmond by 1 – 39 ($2.50) at CrownBet

Port Adelaide vs. Adelaide (August 20, Adelaide Oval)

There certainly hasn’t been the usual hype surrounding this Showdown, but these matches rarely fail to deliver. Port Adelaide have been terrible in recent weeks with little to play for in regards to their finals prospects this season. But Showdown matches are about pride and there is no way they would want to get beaten up badly by crosstown rivals Adelaide. I am certainly not going to advocate tipping the Power, but perhaps it could be closer than many think.

Tip: Adelaide by 1 – 39 ($2.20) at CrownBet

Carlton vs. Melbourne (August 21, MCG)

The Demons are all the rage at the moment and amazingly are still in finals contention. Their future in 2016 will largely be reliant on the performances of other teams but you can guarantee one thing and that is that the Demons will do all they can from their end. The Blues dropped a very winnable game last weekend against Brisbane and I can’t help but think that it might serious dent the morale of the group. Get on Melbourne with big Max Gawn to dominate the ruck contests yet again!

Tip: Melbourne by 40+ ($3.15) at CrownBet
