What We Like

As the Blues enter the game on a losing streak, Harry McKay is tremendous when they need a victory. In his last three matches at the MCG, he has kicked at least three goals on a losing streak.

To Score 3 or More Goals Harry McKay $2.25

Final Thought

After a good victory against the Brisbane Lions to begin the season, the Blues have an impeccable record at home, winning six of their last matches at the MCG.

What We Like

In what is set to be a blockbuster clash, ruck-forward Darcy Cameron has managed to kick at least one goal in his last three games against the Bloods.

Anytime Goalscorer Darcy Cameron $1.94

Final Thought

Recruited from the Fremantle Dockers in the off-season, Lachie Schultz has yet to make his mark in Magpies colours. However, the forward has kicked at least four goals in his past two games against the Swans

Hawthorn- Out: Will Day

What We Like

Entering the game as the favourite of the match, the Essendon Bombers have won their previous eight matches when handed that title. The Hawks have also sustained a big loss with the injury of Will Day.

Match Result Essendon Bombers $1.73

Final Thought

A ball magnet for the Bombers, Jake Stringer has been amazing in his performances against the Hawks. Aiming to continue his good spell against Hawthorn, Stringer has kicked at least two goals in his past four appearances against the opposition.

To Score 2 or More Goals Jake Stringer $2.03

North Melbourne- Out: Luke McDonald, Jy Simpkin

What We Like

The GWS Giants have covered the line in the club’s past six matches, so no difference should be expected this week.

Line (47.5) GWS Giants -47.5 $1.90

Final Thought

The Kangaroos didn’t have the best season last year but one player stood above the rest, Bailey Scott. Scott had a great end to the season recording at least 25 touches in his final four games.

To Get 25 or More Disposals Bailey Scott $2.40

What We Like

After losing their last three games to end last season, a win would be perfect for the 2022 premiers. The Cats have won their past 11 against the Saints at GMHBA Stadium.

Match Result Geelong Cats $1.50

Final Thought

All eyes will be on the one-two combination of Tom Hawkins and Jeremy Cameron in the forward line. The latter is more likely to secure a bag of goals this weekend.

To Score 4 or More Goals Jeremy Cameron $4.50

Gold Coast- No injuries

Adelaide- Out: Riley Thilthorpe, Daniel Curtin

What We Like

Noah Anderson has been one of the better Suns players over the last few years and will be looking to keep the club on the top of the table with another victory.

To Get 25 or More Disposals Noah Anderson $1.52

Final Thought

After a dominant win in the AFL’s Opening Round, the Suns could be one of the most improved teams this year under Damien Hardwick and reach the finals for the first time in their history. Expect them to continue their winning streak on Saturday.

Team News

Melbourne- Out: Jake Bowey

Bulldogs- Out: Bailey Dale

What We Like

Although Melbourne are the clear favourite, the clash is expected to be extremely close and is likely to go down to the wire due to the amount of star in each team.

Margin Melbourne 1-39 $2.30

Final Thought

After a disastrous start against the Swans last weekend, the Melbourne Demons will be looking to get the ball rolling and will be the first team to score first in the game.

Port Adelaide- Out: Sam Powell-Pepper

West Coast- No injuries

What We Like

In what is set to be his final year in the AFL, imagine the scene at Adelaide Oval if club legend Travis Boak scores the opening goal of their season. A fairytale star, the crowd are sure to get behind him.

1st Goal Scorer Travis Boak $23.00

Final Thought

Zak Butters, an All-Australian last season, has had 30 or more disposals in his past five games with the Power. Now, in a new season, Butters will be aiming to stake his claim for the prestigious honouray team again. However, to get the best payout keep any eye on his goal-kicking.

To Score 2 or More Goals Zak Butters $4.10

Fremantle- No injuries

Brisbane- No injuries

What We Like

The Brisbane Lions will enter this week after a narrow one-point loss to Carlton last weekend despite being in the lead for the majority of the match. It’s hard to see them not bounceback against the Dockers.

Match Result Brisbane Lions $1.50

Final Thought

As the 2022 Grand Finalist will be looking to make up for last week, expect a highly dominant performance by them to begin the match-up.

1st Team to 50 Points Brisbane $1.53
