AFL Best Tips and Multi Bet of the Weekend | Round 16
Sydney vs Geelong
June 30th, 19:50, SCG
This season has been a real slow burner for Sydney, who have only won 6 of their 14 games played but 3 of those victories have come in their last 5 outings. Generally, the SCG has been a bit of a fortress for Sydney, who will be hoping to drive up into the play-off spots.
Geelong meanwhile are epitomised by their inconsistency, with 7 wins and 7 losses and they are another outfit that needs to string some results together. They won well at home to Melbourne last week, but they will be all too aware of the difference in challenge here.
Best Bet: Sydney to win the match @ $2.05 (Unibet)
Gold Coast vs Collingwood
July 1st, 16:35, Metricon Stadium
Collingwood travel to the Gold Coast, looking to maintain their place at the top of the AFL table. 12 wins from 14 outings is representative of how good Collingwood have been this season and they will be eager to keep pushing on and hit the play-offs strongly.
Gold Coast are also kicking into gear, with 4 wins in their last 6 games and their thumping of Hawthorn last time out was representative of their attacking talents. They will be bang up for this one at the outset at the Metricon Stadium and they will trouble Collingwood, but the league leaders should prevail in a high-scoring encounter.
Best Bet: Over 163.5 points in the game @ $2.15 (Bet365).
Essendon vs Port Adelaide
July 1st, 17:25, MCG
Two of the most prolific sides in the AFL face off at the MCG, as Essendon host Port Adelaide. Although they snapped a 4-game winning streak at Fremantle last weekend, Essendon are showing signs of coming into form and this will be a stern test of their improvements in recent weeks.
Port Adelaide meanwhile are holding their own in the title race, with 12 wins from 14 games played and confidence will be flowing in the camp, with their last defeat in the AFL coming to title rivals Collingwood back in March.
This should be a superb encounter and whilst Essendon will give it a real good go, Port Adelaide should have enough to get over the line in Melbourne.
Best Bet: Port Adelaide to be winning at half time and full time @ $1.87 (TopSport).
