Collingwood’s Scott Pendlebury and Bulldog skipper Matthew Boyd are this week’s big Brownlow Medal movers at먹튀검증 Australia following respective Best on Ground performances on Anzac Day.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said punters were keen on Pendlebury winning three major medals in a row.
“The phone has been running hot for Pendlebury since the odds went back up despite his odds being slashed from $15 to $10 following Monday’s game,” said Sullivan.
“Out of the last four major medals the Brownlow is all that’s eluded him with two Anzac Medals and a Norm Smith, as well as a Premiership medallion, already sitting in his trophy cabinet.”
While Pendlebury had been well backed, Boyd, who firmed from $17 to $13, could be the one that’s got away from punters according to Sullivan.
“The punters have not come for Boyd at any stage this season,” Sullivan said.
“But you’d think 45 touches would be enough to get him three votes despite his team losing on Monday.
“He did run equal sixth with 20 votes last season and he doesn’t have to compete for votes with quite the same quality that Pendlebury has to.”
AFL 2022 Round 6 Footy Tips and Odds
What a huge 5 days of footy we had over the Easter/Anzac Day long weekend. We don’t have long to sit back and think about our Round 6 footy tipping though with only 1 day without footy before we get back into things Thursday night with West Coast Vs. Melbourne.
Geelong, Hawthorn & Fremantle have the bye in Round 6 which gives us 7 games of footy for the 3rd week in a row.
My best bet of Round Six is Melbourne between 1-39 against West Coast which is paying $2.85 at Sportsbet where they give you a $200 free bet bundle just for signing up. See more info here.
West Coast V Melbourne Thursday Night at Patersons Stadium
With both teams coming off the bye in Round 5 expect both sides to come out firing and trying to get the early advantage. The eagle’s pressure against Hawthorn down in Tassie was A grade and they will need to produce much of the same against Melbourne to get over the line.
Melbourne had an easy win against Gold Coast last time out getting their season on track. Brent Maloney was superb in the midfield and will look to dominate again.
Tip: Melbourne by 14 points
Odds: West Coast 1.71 Melbourne 2.15
Sydney V Carlton Friday Night at the SCG
Sydney should be fresh having a bye in Round 5 and will look to produce the same result as they did against Carlton in last year’s finals series. Jude Bolton is in career best form and will be looking to carry the Swans midfield.
The Blues were good early and late against Adelaide but went missing in the 2nd and 3rd quarters, something they can’t afford to do against the Swans. Andrew Walker is finally starting to show his potential for Carlton up forward and is one to watch out for.
Whichever team can win the midfield battle should get the points here in what should be a cracker of a game.
Tip: Blues by 7 points
Odds: Sydney 1.81 Carlton 2.00
North Melbourne V Port Adelaide Saturday at Etihad Stadium
I wouldn’t be expecting a huge turnout at Etihad stadium on Saturday but do expect a close match between the Roos and Power.
North are desperate for a win, sitting bottom of the AFL ladder after 5 rounds. Some good news last week was the form of big man Drew Petrie up forward bagging 5 goals.
Port Adelaide let a big lead slip and become the first ever victim of the Gold Coast Suns last Saturday. They will be out to rectify that performance and will go in with a big chance against the Roos. Just Westhoff will want to put in a big performance after he missed the chance to win the game for his side in Round 5.
Tip: Kangaroos by 28 points
Odds: North 1.46 Port Adelaide 2.74
Richmond V Brisbane Saturday night at the MCG
The tigers were very good in the second half against the Kangaroos with young gun Dustin Martin producing a sizzling best on ground performance. Jack Reiwoldt is sitting 2nd in the Coleman medal and will be looking for a big bag to go ahead of Buddy Franklin.
Brisbane will be looking again for their first win of the season on Saturday night. The lions were gallant against St Kilda last week but inexperience cost them in the end. Simon Black, Luke Power & Mitch Clark need huge games to lead the Lions to a win.
My prediction is the tigers should be too strong over 4 quarters.
Tip: Richmond by 38 points
Odds: Richmond 1.40 Brisbane 2.98
Adelaide V St Kilda Saturday night at AAMI Stadium
The Saints finally got a win on the board last week and have a very tough couple of months coming up. They need to gain some momentum if they want to feature in the finals.
Adelaide is up and down this season and were unlucky last week not to snatch a win over the Blues. Taylor Walker looks set for a big season and fellow tall forward Kurt Tippet looks to be finding some form.
I expect a low scoring slog Saturday night at AAMI, the experience of the Saints will get them over the line.
Tip: Saints by 10 points
Odds: Adelaide 1.70 St Kilda 2.16
Essendon V Gold Coast Sunday at Etihad Stadium
This is just the game Essendon want coming off a hard hitting ANZAC day performance against the Pies. Dyson Heppell showed that he is going to be a superstar of the competition on Monday with a standout performance. Stuart Crameri is proving to be a shining light up forward and will cause the Suns defense a lot of headaches.
The Gold Coast were terrific in the last quarter against Port to get their first win in the history of the club. Young guns David Swallow and Brandon Matera showed their high qualities when it counted most.
I don’t expect the Suns to cause the Bombers too much trouble though.
Tip: Bombers by 80 points
Odds: Essendon 1.04 Gold Coast 11.25
Collingwood V Bulldogs Sunday at the MCG
The Bulldogs are very up and down this season and will need to put in a consistent 4 quarter performance to have any chance against the ladder leader.
Travis Cloke stood up when needed against Essendon and with Chris Dawes also up forward it should be a great contest against the Bulldogs big defenders.
