Brendan Fevola's best bets for today's AFL games
Richmond win by 40+. Martin 30+ Disposals
The Richmond wagon is gaining momentum, another win today will go along way to securing that finals spot. They’ve won four of their last five games, mainly due to my man Dustin Martin! You all laughed at me after I backed him for the Brownlow, but the Tiger is coming in every week!
I’m going to change things round for this one, and give you my player tip first. No shock for guessing it’s that man! Martin has had over 28 disposals six times in his last seven games, and recorded 38 twice in his last three. The boy is on fire! He’s $2 to have another 30 this week, if theres an easier way to double your money, then please let me know.
Brisbane have been p**s-poor this season, and this fixture has got easy Tigers win written all over it. They’re the better team, the form team and the home team. They’ll get up, $1.83 for them to win by 40+ is the bet.
GWS v Carlton
GWS 40+. Cameron 4+ Goals
Carlton have been a shock this season, but face a very difficult task taking on the Giants at home! GWS have already knocked over the Swans and Hawks at the Spotless Stadium. The Blues sit just two games out of the top eight after recording six wins in their twelve games, mainly thanks to their young guns. However, I feel this will one step to far, and could be a bit of a lesson for the Carlton players.
Last time these two met in Sydney, the home team cruised to a 81 point win, even though this one will be closer, I don’t see the Blues mounting much of a challenge. Get on GWS to be leading at the end of every quarter at $1.48.
Cameron has only played nine games this season, but has still managed to kick 25 goals for the Giants. He’s only kicked four in his last four games, but expect the star man to improve in-front of his home fans. Get on him to kick 4+ at ????
St Kilda v Geelong
Cats -24.5 / Dangerfield 30+ Disposals
The Cats are sitting pretty on the ladder, three victories against title rivals in a row has put them top. They now face an easier proposition, but still a dangerous outfit. The Saints haven’t beaten a top eight team this season but have played some good footy in Victoria, but will Jack Steven and co have enough to deal with Dangerfield and Selwood. I think not…
Geelong are an easy selection at the moment, the Saints haven’t got what it takes to duel with the big teams. Jump on the Cats to win by 25+ at $1.58.
I’ve already mentioned him but my other bet is on Dangerfield. He’s second in the league in terms of disposals, but could go along way to catching Lachie Neale with another outstanding performance today. He’s cruised to over 30 disposals in his last four fixtures, and looks an easy punt at $1.41 to do so again this weekend.
