Lions- No Changes Made

What We Like

After earning their first win of the season last weekend, the Brisbane Lions will look to continue winning despite going into the clash as the underdog. However, the underdog has won four of the last matches between the two clubs.

Match Result Brisbane Lions $2.85

Final Thought

Brisbane Lions’ Zac Bailey always seems to find impeccable form against the Melbourne Demons and has scored two or more goals in his last three outings against the Demons.

Bulldogs- In: James O’Donnell / Out: Caleb Daniel

Bombers- In: Sam Durham, Alwyn Davey Jnr / Out: Will Setterfield, Archie Perkins

What We Like

Not only are the Western Bulldogs the favourites heading into the match, but they have won nine out of their last ten matches against the Essendon Bombers.

Match Result Western Bulldogs $1.44

Final Thought

When the Bombers are considered the away team, they have managed to get off to a quick start due to one of their key players. Jade Gresham has scored the opening goal of the contest in the last three games when Essendon were considered as the away team.

Giants- No Changes Made

Saints- In: Marcus Windhager, Hugo Garcia / Out: Angus Hastie, Zak Jones

What We Like

Considered the easiest bet in Round 5, there is no way the Saints will walk away with the four points against the GWS Giants. Not only are the Giants currently first on the ladder and have yet to lose a game but they will be playing at home at Manuka Oval, a venue the Saints have struggled with throughout their history.

Match Result Greater Western Sydney $1.30

Final Thought

Is there any better forward player at the moment than Jesse Hogan? The Giants’ key forward has been instrumental to the club’s success and is in career-best form. As he looks to remain near the top of the Coleman Medal leaderboard, another big bag of goals can be expected from Hogan.

To Score 3 or More Goals Jesse Hogan $2.00

Team News

Blues- In: Sam Walsh / Out: Lachie Fogarty

Crows- In: Will Hamill, Lachlan Gollant / Out: Patrick Parnell, Chris Burgess

What We Like

Although the Blues remain undefeated to begin the season and the Adelaide Crows have yet to register a victory, the clash should be closer than expected. In most of their games this season, the Crows have contended with their opposition before being outplayed by them.

Margin Carlton 1-39 $2.10

Final Thought

The Carlton is led by Charlie Curnow and Harry McKay in the forward line, who play a significant role in their excelling throughout the game. Up against a struggled Adelaide team who are yet win a game, expect the duo to run rampant with goals.

To Score 3 or More Goals Charlie Curnow and Harry McKay $2.95

Suns- No Changes Made

Hawks- No Changes Made

What We Like

A Hawks is upset is certainly on the table this weekend as they take on the Gold Coast Suns. If the Hawks are able to play like they did in the second half against the Magpies for the full four quarters, an upset is on the cards, especially considering the Suns struggled against the Giants and have made a plethora of changes to start their campaign.

Match Result Hawthorn Hawks $4.10

Final Thought

The opening score of the match is always hard to predict and bet on, but you can expect the first score to be a behind by the Gold Coast Suns. In recent times, the Suns have struggled to get off to a quick start and normally begin the match by missing their first set shot.

Team News

Power- In: Ollie Wines, Sam Powell-Pepper / Out: Travis Boak, Jeremy Finlayson

Dockers- In: Neil Erasmus / Out: Michael Frederick

What We Like

Predicted to be the ‘Match of the Round’, the Power and Dockers head into the clash with three wins and only one loss. Playing at home, it’s hard to go against Port Adelaide, but the scoreline will be closer than expected.

Margin Port Adelaide 1-39 $2.08

Final Thought

A close game between the two teams is expected and this is meant to not only last the entire game but also the opening half of footy. Going into the half, there will be little wiggle room between the two clubs.

Half Time Margin Port Adelaide 1-12 $4.00

Kangaroos- In: Tyler Sellers, Robert Hansen Jr, Will Phillips, Jackson Archer, Blake Drury / Out: Cameron Zurhaar, Tyler Sellers

What We Like

In what is one of the easiest bets of the week, the Geelong Cats will run riot over the Kangaroos this weekend. One of the most in-form clubs, the Cats are yet to lose a game this season, while the Kangaroos have lost 24 out of their last 25 matches.

Margin Geelong 40+ $1.35

Final Thought

Predicted to run wild against North Melbourne, the Cats will look to key forwards Tom Hawkins and Jeremy Cameron in the forward 50.

Team News

Eagles- In: Andrew Gaff, Tyler Brockman, Alex Witherden

Tigers- In: Liam Baker, Sam Naismith, Hugo Ralphsmith, Sam Banks  / Out: Jack Ross

What We Like

While they have lost their last four game against Richmond by over 25 points and are considered outsiders for the match, don’t be surprised for the Eagles to walk away with the win. West Coast are likely to perform well at home, and could produce an upset in front of their home fans.

Match Result West Coast Eagles $3.35

Final Thought

After struggling with inconsistencies last season, Tim Taranto has been red-hot for the Tigers and has become the most crucial piece to the club’s midfield. Although he will be away from home, Taranto should be able to rack up the disposals with ease.

To Get 30 or More Disposals Tim Taranto $2.35
