2017 AFL Round 10 Betting Tips

May 22, 2017 by Posted in AFL Tips

AFL Round 10
Another week of AFL down and another tough one for punters as four underdogs won amongst a host of close games. The Magpies and Hawks massive MCG clash didn’t disappoint as Collingwood game back from 43 points down to steal victory late in the game while interstate teams Fremantle, GWS and Adelaide continued their winning ways in good fashion.

We went 3 of 5 on our Round 9 tips and we’ll be aiming for another profitable week as we present our AFL Round 10 Previews & Betting Tips below.


Geelong vs Port Adelaide (Thursday 7.20pm AEST)
Geelong bounced back from three losses in a row to defeat the Western Bulldogs in a great game on Friday night. The game was the first of the season at the revamped Simmons Stadium and only solidifies its status as a fortress for the Cats as the Geelong crowd were out in full. It’ll be another sell-out this Thursday night as they host the Power who are in great form and will be rested after a week off.

The Power had the Round 9 bye along with Gold Coast due to their international game in China and should come back refreshed to take on the Cats. The early bye might be detrimental to the Power later in the season but with big games against the Cats, Hawks and Bombers in the next three weeks, it should bode well for them as they look to improve to 6-3 on Thursday night.

The addition of Scott Selwood was massive for the Cats. The brother of Joel laid a ridiculous 17 tackles for the game while himself, Mitch Duncan and Paddy Dangerfield combined for 47 betweem them. Dangerfield looked back to his best with a 36 disposal, 4 goal performance. Down at the Cattery with the Geelong midfield in Dangerfield, Duncan and the Selwoods in form, we like the Cats to win in another close one here.

Sydney vs Hawthorn (Friday 7.50pm AEST)
The old Sydney might be back after they secured their third win in a row on Saturday with a 50-point victory over the Saints. The midfield that looked like they were struggling at times earlier in the season absolutely decimated St. Kilda, particularly Dan Hannebery who had 30 disposals and 2 goals in the win. Josh Kennedy and Jake Lloyd were also fantastic, combining for 70 touches.

Hawthorn looked like the Hawks of old in their game against the Pies on the weekend, blowing out to a 43-point lead before half time. The midfield of the Pies shone through in the end and the Hawks injury woes became prevalent as the Pies steamrolled to kick 9 goals to 1 in the second half and win the match.

The Hawks are still battling a lot of injuries with Grant Birchall, James Frawley, Jaeger O’Meara, Cyril Rioli and Ben Stratton all out for extended periods. With Sydney’s turn in form we expect them to win this one easily at home.

TIP: Sydney -29.5 – $1.92 at Ladbrokes

Western Bulldogs vs St. Kilda (Saturday 1.45pm AEST)
The Saints dropped out of the eight this week with a loss to the Swans after a decent four game win streak. The inexperience of the Saints came back to the fold as they were punished by a bigger bodied Swans midfield with the only Saints midfielder holding his own being Seb Ross, who is in All-Australian form this year. Dylan Roberton was once again impressive off half back, taking intercept marks all day and kicking a great goal from outside 50.

The Dogs once again played in a game that could have went either way in the last few minutes. The Dogs haven’t won or lost convincingly all year which is a good thing when you think about the fact that they have been competitive against Geelong, West Coast and GWS but a scary thing that they have been able to put away the likes of Brisbane, North Melbourne and Collingwood.

St. Kilda were exposed in the midfield on the weekend and will come up against another quality outfit here. They could get the services of David Armitage back, who is listed as questionable, but that might not be enough for the young core. However, with the Dogs affinity for playing close games we think this should be another thriller.

TIP: Either team under 15.5 – $2.80 at Sportsbet


Richmond vs Essendon (Saturday 7.25pm AEST)
The game of the round sees Richmond taking on Essendon at the MCG on Saturday night. Richmond have succumbed to three heartbreaking losses in a row after Jeremy Cameron kicked a last minute goal to win the game for the Giants after their losses to Fremantle and Western Bulldogs the weeks prior. After starting 5-0 the Tiges have lost their last four games, the good thing, however, is that they’ve been competitive in every game since their 76 point loss to Adelaide in Round 6.

Essendon’s season looked on the brink after back to back losses to Melbourne and Fremantle in rounds six and seven but huge wins over Geelong and West Coast in the last two rounds has propelled them to 5-4 on the season, tied with a host of teams fighting for the last few spots in the eight. The elite midfield brigade came to the party against the Eagles with Zach Merret, David Zaharakis, Jobe Watson and Brendon Goddard all racking up over 28 touches in the win.

In arguably the hardest game of the round to pick, Richmond will be desperate for a win to bounce back from their poor form while Essendon will be looking to roll on with a victory over their fierce rivals. It would be a Richmond thing to do to lose this game so we’re going with the value here and backing Essendon.

TIP: Essendon to win – $2 at Ladbrokes
