Fremantle are still looking, albeit not that hard, for their first win, while Richmond are looking to harness newfound momentum.

Fremantle continues to be winless, with question marks growing about how much priority is actually being put on gaining the four points. Recent weeks have seen respectable losses to probably finalists Adelaide, GWS and Hawthorn.

Richmond is coming off what will surely be the win of the season, thanks to a Sam Lloyd goal from 50m out after the siren to sink the Swans. The Tigers had shown signs against Hawthorn the week before, and may have turned the corner after a slow start to the year.

At $7, I don’t mind the look of Dusty Martin to lead possessions here. Neale ($2) has been dominating but is a little short in my ‘expert’ opinion and Dusty has racked up 28, 28 and 31 in the three weeks and even found the ball 34 times against the Dockers in round nine last year. Although he’s not paying much, Handball happy Neale ($1.70) is good value as he’ll win this category with his eyes closed.

Fremantle leads Richmond 6-4 in their last 10 clashes. The last three matches between the sides, including two last year, have gone the way of the visitor, the Dockers winning twice at the MCG and the Tigers winning once at Domain.

From 2013 on, Richmond has clearly the best record of any travelling team at Domain Stadium, winning three games from five attempts, covering the spread in four of them, and with a POT of +107%.

The Dockers have now lost five in a row in Perth, and six of their last seven games there have gone under the total match points.

The two most underwhelming teams of 2016 meet, and if you line them up through other sides they’ve both met (Carlton, Adelaide, Hawthorn), there really doesn’t appear to be much between them.

While playing in Perth would usually be to Fremantle’s advantage, the Tigers play there as well as any side that has to get on a plane. And Richmond has shown in previous seasons that when they do strike form, they hold it.

Trent Cotchin back for the Tigers can only help them, and they appear particularly well primed to take advantage of the lack of Sandilands, Fyfe and Johnson for Fremantle. A fast start will be on their mind, to continue on the momentum of last week.

North are unbeaten, but face AFL’s version of Leicester with the heretofore hapless Carlton on a four match winning streak.

North continue to be undefeated, but each win seems to be more unimpressive than the last, allowing both the Dons and Saints to outscore them by four goals in the second half over the last fortnight. Are they wilting, or purposely putting the cue in the rack?

Carlton have become the feel-good surprise of the season among the lower ranked clubs, peeling off four wins in a row, albeit against poor performing or inconsistent sides. Still, they continue to get the job done, each win fuelling more belief.

Before selections on Thursday night, this was the game I could see North losing. However, with Carlton missing so many big players, I have my doubts. After all… who have North even beaten this year? Anyway, moving on… Bryce Gibbs is the #1 ranked player in Fantasy at the moment over the last three weeks with an average of 131, he had 115 on the Roos last year and is paying $3.50 to take out the group. But you can’t look past Goldstein ($2.70) who will monster a ‘ruckless’ Blues outfit. This is the easiest bet of the day in my eyes as he’s up against Daniel Gorringe ha ha, I can’t say that without laughing. Just enjoy the show.

North have won six of their last 10 against Carlton, but the Blues have won two of the last three. They have only played each other once a season since 2008, so many players and coaches have changed hands.

An interesting match-up presents, between a clearly superior team down on form despite winning, and the in-form side on the rise, defined by discipline and heart.

It’s hard to trust North by any sort of margin as a short favourite given they’ve stumbled over the line against the Saints and Bombers in the last fortnight. Carlton will present them with a more obvious challenge, so they may be sharper for it, but then the impact of missing their two best playmakers, Shaun Higgins and Daniel Wells, can’t be underestimated.

The Blues have taken advantage of a perfect patch of four games, and their honesty has particularly undone Fremantle, Collingwood and Port, who each turned up expecting the win without putting in requisite effort.

It’s going to be hard to find a bet with confidence, so value looks the order of the day.

Plenty at stake here. Port need a win against a decent side, and West Coast need a win on the road.

Port continued their up-and-down season last week, failing to hold out Carlton despite leading for 80% of the game, and 95% of the last three quarters. This came after wins against Richmond and Brisbane that flattered to deceive.

West Coast’s form is well established by now – five wins in Perth and three losses away. Last week was their most impressive win of the year, shutting out St Kilda from the outset and then cruising to a 103 point win.

With Nic Naitanui going up against Trengrove, expect the ball to be jammed down the throat of Andrew Gaff ($3) and Matt Priddis ($4.50) all day long. Trengrove is Port’s #1 ruckman, so with the Eagles getting first use of the ball every time, I’ll be loading up on man Gaff who is coming off back to back 36 possession games. Easy way to triple your dough and for insurance, back him at $1.45 for 30+ touches as he has only missed the mark in one game this year.

Stats That Matter

Port and West Coast have split their last ten matches 5-5, and five of the ten have gone the way of the visitor, so home ground advantage is not pronounced. Three of the last four clashes have been won by the visitor.

This will be the longest odds the Power have started at Adelaide Oval. Only twice before have they started longer than $2.30 there. The last time was Round 4, 2015, when they beat Hawthorn.

West Coast are 0-3 away from home this year, and yet to cover the spread. The Eagles have won three of their last five in Adelaide, at +132% POT.

Port represent the enormous value of the round, given they are capable of getting hot for periods within games, most often do so at Adelaide Oval, and the way West Coast have wilted away from home this season.

The biggest concern for the Power will be Naitanui’s ability to dominate ruck contests and give the Eagles mids first use of the ball. Outside that, Port’s midfield can match them. Port will also need Charlie Dixon and Chad Wingard to hit form. Neither has really produced what we know they’re capable of.

West Coast should prove the better team over the course of the season, must be setting themselves for a big one on the road, and should really win. But until they do, you couldn’t back them at the short odds.

Players List:

Port Adelaide Power:
B: D.Byrne-Jones, T.Jonas, J.Pittard
HB: C.O’Shea, J.Hombsch, M.Broadbent
C: J.Polec, O.Wines, B.Ebert

Australian Football League Live Gold Coast Suns vs Adelaide Crows Stream AFL 2016 Seasons Week 09 match will be kick off at Metricon Stadium, Carrara, Queensland, Australia, Saturday 21 May 2016 online, 14.10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.

Gold Coast are in a horror patch of form, equal to any in their history, if not worse relative to expectation. In the last month, they’ve conceded almost 150 points a game, with four losses by an average margin of over 80 points.

Adelaide are coming off the hardest opening eight game stretch of any side, and a 4-4 result is probably a win shy of what they deserved. Losses to the Dogs and Cats over the last fortnight have hurt their overall standing.

With Gold Coast crumbling we can’t look past Scott Thompson. He had 34 touches against them last year and is paying $2.50 to lead the pack again. He has been out of touches though with just 20 and 16 in his last two games, so if it’s value you’re after then back in Rory Sloane ($4.50) who is coming off 28 touches last week and a huge 11 tackles, you can also get him at $4 to take out that field as well.

Gold Coast is yet to beat Adelaide in eight starts, and there have been some big margins among them, with the Crows holding an average winning margin of 55 points, and no winning margin less than 32 points.

Adelaide has covered the spread in three of four interstate matches this year, and are undefeated in Queensland since 2013, with five wins, covering the spread in four of them. The Suns have failed to cover the spread in the last four rounds. Under Rodney Eade, Gold Coast is 5 from 15 at Metricon, at -32% POT and 47% ATS.

Gold Coast are now producing the worst football of any side this year, bereft of too much talent and all confidence gone. What little resistance there is, is brittle, and now Gary Ablett is out on top of all their troubles.

Adelaide hasn’t had an easy game since Rounds 2 and 3 when they defeated Port by 58 points and Richmond by 36, and the Suns are far worse off than either of those sides. The Crows have come undone against two legitimate top four contenders in the last two weeks, they’re going to relish the freedom they haven’t had recently, and will be hungry for a kill.

Players List:

Gold Coast Suns:
B: H.Schade, J.Leslie, S.Lemmens
HB: J.Harbrow, S.Day, K.Kolodjashnij
C: C.Ah Chee, M.Rischitelli, M.Shaw

AFL Live Collingwood Magpies vs Geelong Cats Stream AFL Football 2016 Online, AFL Round 09 Match will be kick off at The  MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 21 May 2016 online, 13.45 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.

The Pies took the heat off coach Nathan Buckley with a resounding win over Brisbane last week, and a record of 3-5 isn’t as disastrous as the headlines have intimated. But they are yet to run close against any of the competitions best sides.

Geelong have had a friendly draw to open the season, but have themselves forward as genuine premiership contenders, if not favourites, with their two most recent wins – dominating West Coast down at the Cattery, and travelling to Adelaide to down the Crows in convincing fashion.

In his last three games against the Pies, Dangerfield has scored 114, 89 and 135 Fantasy points. This year, Collingwood are conceding the most points out of all teams and Dangerfield will go even bigger. Paying $3.50 for most points and $4.50 for most touches, expect him to be massive. Another guy who will rack it up will be his partner in crime Joel Selwood. He’s paying double your money to find the pill 30+ times and should do that by three quarter time.

Recent matches are split 5-5, but Nathan Buckley leads Chris Scott 4-2 in their head to head battles, so recent form favours the Magpies.

Collingwood have been “back” twice already this season, but followed up Round 2 and Round 5 wins with consecutive losses each time. Last week’s win was at least as much being due to Brisbane simply not showing up as anything the Pies did.

Geelong is really starting to earn some credit. The positive flow-on effects of having Patrick Dangerfield mean their midfield is batting deeper than most, with a player like Jimmy Bartel coming in as the seventh or eighth stringer.

The Pies may even match the Cats through the middle for periods of the game, but won’t be able to score as much as Geelong can at the other end, due to a miserly Cats defence working smoothly together.

Players List:

Collingwood Magpies:
B: J.Frost, B.Reid, B.Maynard
