AFL Finals - Week 1

Adelaide by 10 goals or more @ 3.60 - Big bet. Essendon are the worst team to play finals since I can remember. Adelaide by a huge margin.

Western Bulldogs @ 1.95 - Half of Geelongs list are either injured, underdone or just plain old and slow. Dogs hitting form at the right time and Geelong have been ordinary since about round 10.

Carlton -2.5 @ 2.10 - No black, no Bradshaw, no Merret, no Drummond... that's 4 of their top 7 players out. Carlton have already beaten Brisbane twice this year and should make ot 3 from 3 in a high scoring end to end game. The key is Brown, for Brisbane to win he'll need to kick about 7 goals, which is certainly possible given Carlton's atrocious defence. At the other end is Fevola who kicked 8 last time at the Gabba. There's no obvious match up for him and Brisbane may even put Roe on him.. but Roe's shit so they might think better of it.

Carlton by more than 24 points @ 4.15 - meh

Re: AFL Finals - Week 1

Some more...

Adelaide to kick first 3 goals @ 3.72

Essendon lowest scoring team @ 2.20

Adelaide highest winning margin @ 1.90 - Should be about 1.20. The other 3 games will be close-ish... hard to see a margin beyond about 6 goals in any of the matches, and Adelaide should win by 12+ goals.

Re: AFL Finals - Week 1

Bulldogs should be a good bet to beat Geelong. I would bet on the Lions, but those losses maybe to big to replace, especially Bradshaw.

Re: AFL Finals - Week 1

Our problem is stopping Fevola. If we can stop Fevola, we win.

If Brown kicks straight, we win.

If I were Brisbane I'd bring in a raw ruckman in his first game. Mitch Clark contests the hit outs then drops back. This other ruckman does the around the ground work. If Clark can drop back and stop Fevola's path that could be a way of stopping him. Play with a 5 man forward line and allow an extra player back.

Re: AFL Finals - Week 1

Wow I have to look back at the prior year finals lines but 39.5 has to be up there as one of the biggest spreads offered in a finals game

Re: AFL Finals - Week 1

You're game.

Adelaide should have 8 goals up to quarter time

Re: AFL Finals - Week 1

Two great bets these. Well done.

Any idea what were Adelaide paying to be highest scoring team?

Never in doubt. This is why I don't like the final 8... Final 6 and we have quality finals featuring quality teams.

No. I was only half paying attention but I think some clown crows trainer ran through the mark and Essendon got 50 meters and kicked a goal.

Yes.

Think they were maybe about 2.40ish?? Not clever not taking this, but Bris-Carl should be a high scoring match so was scared off.
