North Melbourne vs Port Adelaide Predictions and Betting Tips

It is a North Melbourne home game at Blundstone Arena, however, it is Port that has had grand success against the Kangaroos in Tasmania over the past couple of seasons. 

Like most teams, Port have dominated the Kangas, having an average winning margin of 63.66 points over the past three games  with the last two being played in Tassie. North Melbourne have been getting pummeled by their opposition with an average losing margin of 51.4 points per game in 2024. 

Port have had some accuracy issues, but with the pressure off against North Melbourne, expect them to fire on line this round.

Carlton vs Gold Coast Predictions and Betting Tips

Gold Coast are inching their way closer every week to a maiden finals appearance. A win against Carlton will go a long way to ensuring that becomes a reality with both teams expected to be around the lower half of the top 8 come September.

The Suns probably won’t dominate their opponents this week as they have the previous two games but Carlton are still struggling with injuries and whether or not they get players back this week they won’t be at 100%. Suns should get this one.

Betting Tip: Gold Coast 1-39 Winning Margin @ $3.10 bet365

Geelong vs GWS Giants Predictions and Betting Tips

Both of these two teams are coming in riding a three game losing streak and are desperate to break the trend. However, it is the Cats that will do so this week with GWS’s injury list growing ever longer with Jack Buckley, Darcy Jones and Josh Fahey added to the extensive problem of health.

The Giants attack has stopped over the last three wounds and it wont improve this week either which will see the Cats cover the points as favourites,

Richmond vs Essendon Predictions and Betting Tips

Richmond are in a hole and they won’t be getting out of it any time soon. Essendon will look to sharpen their teeth on a ragged bunch of AFL fringe players this weekend. With a favourable schedule in front of them over the next month the Bombers could practically secure their finals berth and be top of the AFL table at the end of June.

But it all starts with putting away cellar-dwellers and they shouldn’t have a problem disposing of the Tigers who have been paltry in defence over the past couple of games.
