2016 AFL Round 9 Betting

We yet again scored 2/4 correct AFL tips for a small profit last week. It is good to be winning, but it would be even better if we could breakthrough with a clean sweep! Hopefully that’s what happens this week as we offer our 2016 AFL Round 9 betting tips

Sydney vs. Hawthorn (Friday 20 May, MCG)

In light of the devastating personal health issues surrounding Hawthorn champion Jarryd Roughead, it feels inappropriate to preview this match. But while everyone hopes for the best possible outcome for Roughead, the show will go on this week. It should be a highly entertaining contest between two clubs which have enjoyed a fierce rivalry in recent years. All eyes will be on Lance Franklin, who is in arguably career best form and will undoubtedly want to produce a big performance against his old side. The Hawks are a great side but I feel the off field dramas of this week could have a draining effect on the side, and understandably so. The Swans on the other hand will look to rebound hard after a shock loss to Richmond.

Tip: Sydney by 1 – 39 at $3.05 at CrownBet

Port Adelaide vs. West Coast (Saturday 21 May, Adelaide Oval)

There is no sugar-coating it, Port Adelaide are struggling badly. The Power have gone backwards since their meteoric rise up the ladder in 2014 and are struggling to get consistent efforts out of their top-line players. The Eagles looked dominant last week, easily disposing of a disappointing St Kilda outfit in Perth. But question marks remain over their ability to win away from home and I suggest that they will be out to prove a point this week.

Tip: West Coast by 40+ at $3.10 at CrownBet

Fremantle vs. Richmond (Saturday 21 May, Domain)

Speaking of disappointments, Fremantle are right at the top of that list. The Dockers are yet to win a game this season but they still possess plenty of talent on paper. Inside midfielder Lachie Neale is clearly not distracted by the contract talk and is racking up possessions at will this season. The Tigers have their own weaponry in Brett Deledio and Dustin Martin and will be riding a wave of confidence after last week’s win over the Swans. Apart from a shocking effort against West Coast earlier this year, the Tigers normally play well on the bigger ground, but eventually the Dockers will break through for a win and this week could be it.

Tip: Fremantle by 1 – 39 at $2.35 at CrownBet

GWS Giants vs. Western Bulldogs (Sunday 22 May, Spotless Stadium)

This game shapes as one of the matches of the round with two youthful sides playing a fast brand of football. The Giants are the talk of the football world at the moment and are establishing themselves as a genuine premiership contender. Tom Scully is in great form while Dylan Shiel, Stephen Coniglio and Callan Ward form a tough and uncompromising midfield. But the Bulldogs have not done a lot wrong this year. Losing a couple of key running players from the back half has wiped a bit of polish from the side but the boys from the Western Oval have produced creditable performances in recent weeks. With tackling machine Tom Liberatore around the clinches, he will put plenty of pressure on the Giants midfielders, which could stifle their ball use. Look for a fast-paced game with the Dogs winning in a shoot out.

Tip: Western Bulldogs 1 – 39 at $3.50 at CrownBet
