2016 AFL Roos Dogs

It was another solid week betting on the AFL in Round 5 as we bagged 3/4 winners for a handy profit. Hopefully that continues – or improves – this week as we offer 2016 AFL Round 6 betting tips. If you want more information about each game head to the official AFL website.

North Melbourne vs Western Bulldogs (Friday, April 29)

Arguably the biggest game of the season so far sees North Melbourne take on the Bulldogs in a rare Friday night blockbuster for the battler clubs. The Roos and the Bulldogs have both been anything but battlers in 2016, however, so it’s good to see the spotlight on them for once. Overall the Bulldogs seem like the team with better prospects, but with Matt Suckling, Bob Murphy and Jason Johannisen on the sidelines, the edge has to go to North Melbourne. Those three players are so important to the Western Bulldog’s backline and with the Roos having a tall-timber forward half, it’s going to be hard for the Dogs to win. Like the Roos in a close one.

Tip: North Melbourne UNDER 39.5 – $2.30 at CrownBet

Melbourne vs St Kilda (Saturday, April 30)

One of the more intriguing games of Round 6 sees the Demons and Saints battle it out at Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Demons are favourites and they deserve to be. They are coming off a big win over the Tigers, while the Saints struggled against the Giants last week. The demons put up a big score against Richmond and I think with big Max Gawn dominating in the ruck, the Demons should take care of the Saints. I do think the Saints and Demons have similar talented young lists, but momentum and confidence definitely mean something and the Demons will have Confidence in droves after last week. Gawn could also be a big difference in these sorts of games. He really is second to only Todd Goldstein. Happy to take the Demons to cover the line.

Tip: Melbourne at the line (-9.5) – $1.92 at CrownBet

GWS Giants vs Hawthorn (Saturday, April 30)

Despite losing to the Demons in Round 1, the Giants have put together a relatively strong season so far. They got a win against the Cats in Round 2 and have won the last two rounds convincingly. Jeremy Cameron came back last week after missing the first four games and kicked five goals. So does that mean they can beat Hawthorn? This one is at Spotless Stadium, which helps, but ultimately we are talking about the Hawks here. They get the job done and they are far and away the better team. I think the Giants will be competitive, but the Hawks will win.

Tip: Hawthorn by 1-24 points – $3.35 at CrownBet

Carlton vs Essendon (Sunday, May 1)

Essendon showed their true colours on Monday as they were smashed by the Magpies. They have been brave this season, but we have to remember they are fielding a team of very inexperienced players in 2016. I would be surprised if they win another game this year and even though this might be their best chance against Carlton this weekend, I’m still happy to bet on the Blues. They were great against the Dockers last week and will have enough confidence to get the win at the MCG on Sunday.

Tip: Carlton UNDER 39.5 – $2.10 at CrownBet
