West Coast v Melbourne

Sunday March 22nd, 6:40pm

West Coast is a highly reliable betting proposition as a big home favourite in Perth so more than happy to take the Eagles. West Coast is 33-19 against the spread when favoured by three or more goals in WA.

The benefit of not having to fly in these dangerous times only boosts confidence. Melbourne have covered just 3 of 11 night/twilight games.

Betting Strategy

BACK – West Coast -19.5

Richmond v Carlton


Thursday March 19th, 7:25pm

Carlton is always a play in Victoria as a big underdog. Since 2012, the Blues have covered at an incredible 68% when getting three or more goals in Melbourne. At the MCG they are in insane 26-5 against the line when bookies are handing out a start of 18.5 or more.

Carlton has covered the three meetings against the Tigers over the last two seasons and is a prime bet to cover the big number again with a win off the stick unsurprising over the defending premiers.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Carlton +19.5


Essendon v Fremantle

Saturday March 21st, 1:45pm

Since 2012, Essendon has been the worst favourites in the AFL. The Bombers have been a horrific 28-47 against the spread when favoured, a cover rate of just 37%. When favoured by more than two goals the Bombers have covered just 15 of 51.

Fremantle has covered six of their last nine interstate trips and are 14-8 against the line at Marvel Stadium over the last eight seasons.

Betting Strategy

BACK – Fremantle +15.5
