Hawthorn vs Adelaide Predictions and Betting Tips

Hawthorn have looked sharp over the past month after losing their opening 5 matches of the season. They are playing to their strengths and are not afraid to push up field and hold pressure inside 50 and get good movement downfield from their half backs with their half forwards also playing deep. 

Adelaide have been improving but will come under this uncomfortable pressure from a young Hawks team that are flying high at the moment full of confidence after getting a big win against Brisbane last week

Betting Tip: Hawthorn Hawks +6.5 Line @ $1.90 PlayUp

West Coast vs St Kilda Predictions and Betting Tips

The Saints are starting as the underdogs against West Coast which presents good value for the underdog especially considering how well St. Kilda have been defending despite their losing record.

St Kilda are 2nd in the league in Pressure Acts averaging 309 per game which has them ranked 6th in the league with just 11.2 goals conceded per game. The Saints are likely to frustrate the Eagles with their bog-down style of play and will get the upset ‘Little Win’.

Betting Tip: St Kilda 1-39 Winning Margin @$2.45 Betr

Geelong vs Richmond Predictions and Betting Tips

The bookies are backing in Geelong to claw viciously at the Tigers this week giving Richmond a 45.5-point headstart. Witht the way the Cats have been going over the past month and an improved performance from the Tigers, I am definitely putting the cash f´down on the underdog yellow sash to cover in this game. 

Even when Geelong were flying high at the top of the table they were not busting through teams with only one of their wins being by a 40+ margin. Richmond have copped a couple of hidings, but they put in much more effort against Essendon last week and if they emulate last week’s game they will at least keep this one within seven goals. 

Betting Tip: Richmond +45.5 @ $1.90 EliteBet
