AFL 2009 - Round 7 Tips

I'm back baby!

Time to get the tips back on line.

Was running pretty well last year with the tips with an over 80% strike-rate on certainties and 70% on all tips.

Anyway, lets see if we can regain the magic.

Essendon Vs Hawthorn
Hawthorn have been a bit proppy with the amount of injuries they've had. Essendon has had a bad break with Dustin Fletcher's broken ankle last week. I think Hawthorn will get up over Essendon this week in the vicinity of 5 goals.

Geelong Vs Sydney
It's hard to tip against the Cats this week. Home game. Even with Gary Ablett out for this Round 7 clash I see too much to like about Geelong. Cats home by 7 goals.

Richmond Vs Brisbane
A tough match to call this week. Normally I'd take Brisbane over Richmond any day, but in Melbourne it evens things up a little. I've still got to say Brisbane, by about 4 goals.

Kangaroos Vs Port Adelaide
Kangaroos are useless since Brent Harvey dislocated his elbow. Port usually suck in Melbourne, but after beating Hawthorn here a few weeks back that may have changed. Port Adelaide by 2 goals.

Carlton Vs Fremantle
Carlton to exorcise some demons and pump the Dockers. Not helped by the fact that Freo are duds in Melbourne. The Blues by 10 goals.

Adelaide Vs Western Bulldogs
This should be a close one. Adelaide at home are a formidable task, while the Dogs haven't traveled too well interstate this year. Adelaide can't kick big scores so they need to hold the Dogs to a score under 80pts. Crows too good at home against interstate teams, should win by under a kick. Crows by 5pts.

West Coast Vs Melbourne
Wow. The battle of who could care less. Melbourne were plucky against the Cats this week, but I feel the Cats contributed to that. Melbourne have a terrible travelling record. West coast to save some face after losing the Derby. West Coast by 5 goals.

Collingwood Vs St Kilda
It's just too hard to go past St Kilda. The Magpies may be without 2 forwards, Paul Medhurst & Jack Anthony, with the latter putting that glorious cranium of his to good use. Saints by 4 goals.

My Certainties: Geelong, Carlton, West Coast, St Kilda.

There you have it, my tips for round 6. I'm starting the tally from this week so my current strike rate is 100%.. Cheeky, I know.
