Bet for Free previews the two best games of AFL Round 11, 2017 and we provide our best bets for each game.
Geelong Cats vs Adelaide Crows
Geelong have won two in a row at Simonds Stadium and will look to make it three against the Crows. Patrick Dangerfield meets his former side and he’s in excellent form having kicked 9 goals in the last three matches. They get a 8 day break which should help from a bruising encounter against the Power.
Adelaide are back in goal scoring form as they kicked another massive score in Round 10 against the Dockers. They’re looking for their win at the Cattery since 2003.
Harry Taylor had a poke in the eye but he should be right for the clash.
The Crows had no injury concerns from the weekend.
Last 3 meetings:
Round 18, 2016
Geelong defeats Adelaide 85-55
Round 8, 2016
Adelaide defeated by Geelong 72-98
Round 23, 2015
Geelong defeats Adelaide 119-80
Geelong have won the past four meetings by an average of 33.25 points. Also, their last 5 matches have finished under a 5 goal margin. The Crows closet game has been 17 points in Round 3 but this figures to be a 1-39 margin.
The last match at Geelong totalled 140 points between these two sides. The Crows are the top scoring team in the AFL and have scored an average of 124 points per game. While Geelong average 107 points per game.
The Cats have an excellent record against the Crows at home and we are predicting another win for the Cats. Although, this match will be a close, tough contest. Hopefully, Rory Sloane and Patrick Dangerfield play on each other.
Fremantle Dockers vs Collingwood Magpies
The Dockers suffered an embarrassing defeat last week as they scored just 43 points in a 100 point loss against the Crows. They’ll be looking to rebound at home against the Magpies.
Collingwood defeated the Lions last week at the MCG and have won two in a row. They sit 12th on the ladder and can move into the top eight if results go their way.
Aaron Sandilands has a hamstring issue and would be 50/50 to play in this match.
Darcy Moore has a minor shin issue but he should play.
Last 3 meetings:
Round 14, 2016
Collingwood defeats Fremantle 85-37
Round 13, 2015
Fremantle defeats Collingwood 80-73
Round 1, 2014
Collingwood defeated by Fremantle 46-116
Fremantle have won the last two against Collingwood at Subiaco by an average of 17 points. Although, the Magpies defeated the Dockers by 48 points in the last meeting.
The Dockers average just 11.1 goals per game and they’re ranked second last in the AFL for points scored. While, the Magpies are ranked second last in the AFL for behinds scored. They also rank 14th in the AFL for points per game.
The Dockers were poor last week and the Magpies weren’t great against Brisbane. We’re expecting a close, low scoring game between the two sides. The line is at 5.5 points and we think the Magpies can cover or possibly win.
