Bet for Free previews the two best games of AFL Round 10, 2017 and we provide our best bets for each game.
Adelaide Crows vs Fremantle Dockers
The Crows smashed the Lions to halt a two game losing streak in Round 9. They scored 140 points and have scored 140+ in 5 of 9 games this season.
Fremantle are one of the hottest sides in the AFL after winning 6 of the last 7 games. They sit fifth on the ladder.
Curtly Hampton is out with an ankle injury.
The Dockers have a clean bill of health at the moment.
Last 3 meetings:
Round 21, 2016
Fremantle defeated by Adelaide 70-142
Round 6, 2016
Adelaide defeats Fremantle 97-64
Round 9, 2015
Adelaide defeated by Fremantle 57-68
The Crows kicked 142 points against the Dockers in Round 21 last year, but that was at Subiaco and the Dockers are in form this year.
The total averages 144.5 points in the last two meetings at Adelaide Oval. The Crows average 122 points in 2017 and 18 goals per game. Fremantle are a low scoring side and have kicked 100+ points in 2 of 9 matches.
The Adelaide Crows have won the past two against Fremantle and we’re expecting another win in this matchup. The Crows will have more points up forward and they’re 4-1 at Adelaide Oval this season.
West Coast Eagles vs GWS Giants
The Eagles were outclassed by the Bombers last week in a 10 goal loss at Etihad Stadium. They have a 6-3 record this season. They sit fourth on the ladder and have never lost to the Giants in their history.
Greater Western Sydney have made two straight comebacks at home against the Magpies and Tigers. They have a long injury list yet they still sit second on the ladder with 7 wins.
Sharrod Wellingham will miss 1-2 weeks with an ankle injury.
Another injury worry for the Giants last week with Rory Lobb picking up a groin injury. Steve Johnson is also out, mostly due to the travel factor.
Last 3 meetings:
Round 21, 13 Aug 2016
GWS defeated by West Coast 96-97
Round 5, 2 May 2015
West Coast defeats GWS 120-33
Round 8, 2014
West Coast defeats GWS 188-77
William Hill has the line at 7.5 points currently so this is expected to be a close game between two evenly matched sides. The Eagles won the last clash by 1 point in Western Sydney last season. GWS last played at Subiaco in 2016 and recorded their first victory in 7 matches.
The last meeting totalled 195 points in a 97-96 scoreline. The Giants average 14.8 goals per game, while the Eagles average 13.2. So we can expect around 25-28 total goals. West Coast have kicked over 90 points in three or four matches at Subiaco this season.
The West Coast Eagles are 4-0 at home this season and the Giants are 1-6 at Subiaco in their history. The Giants have a long injury list and the Eagles are looking to respond from a 61 point away loss. We’re tipping the Eagles and a value bet at the line of 7.5 points.
