AFL Round 23: Brisbane Lions vs Melbourne

Airing August 19th at 5:50 AM ET
The #4 lions and the #3 Melbourne are facing off for the second spot in the premiership.

Given their last five games, the Points Over/Under set to 172 ½ is difficult to predict.

Melbourne has been the underdog in the majority of these matches, and the 2022 AFL Round 23 odds are only offering a +2 ½ points spread. 

Prediction: Melbourne Money Line +100

Melbourne fumbled against the Magpies and Demons in recent games, but they smashed the Lions back in June 117 to 53. Only three players are out on injury compared to Brisbane’s loss of key players like Midfielder Cameron Rayner. 

AFL Round 23: Greater Western Sydney Giants vs Fremantle

 Airing August 19th at 11:45 AM ET 
Fremantle broke out of their funk last week with a second win in a row. The Giants are now 1-4 in their last five, prepped to end the season near dead last. 

Prediction: Fremantle Money Line -211

Easy money on a Fremantle win. They have no current injuries and they’ll be looking to smash the Sydney Giants to climb the ranks, changing their seed for next year’s fixtures. They’re too far down in the standings to be considered for the Premiership at 58 points. 

AFL Round 23: North Melbourne vs Gold Coast Suns  

Airing August 20th at 12:10 AM ET  
Finally, a competitive game for the Kangaroos. The suns are currently ranked 12th, but both teams are 1-4 in their last five. The Suns beat the Crows back in June 116 to 73, while the Kangaroos are coming off a loss to Adelaide 103 to 74. 

Prediction: North Melbourne Point Spread +22 ½ -110

The point spread leaves wiggle room for the Kangaroos. GCS won their last two games only two and three points ahead. They smashed North Melbourne 109 to 47 in early June, but the Kangaroos have improved dramatically despite recent close losses. 

AFL Round 23: Geelong vs West Coast 

Airing August 20th at 02:35 AM ET
In the most one sided match up of the weekend, Geelong faces the #17 Eagles. West Coast is 1-9 since June, and they lost to the Cats 63 to 81 in their last meet. Geelong obliterated the Suns in a sixty point win. They show no signs of slowing that lead. 

Prediction: Under 167 ½ Points 

Geelong has no reason to deliver a beating. Just a win will solidify their place in the Premiership. No money line is currently offered, and the Geelong point spread is -65 ½. You’re better off betting on the defensive game that Geelong should play to win with as little damage as possible. The 2022 AFL Round 23 odds don’t want you parlaying the Geelong win because it’s too sure of a performance. 


AFL Round 23: Richmond vs Essendon

Airing August 20th at 05:25 AM ET
Losing their last two pummeled Essendon in the ranks. Theyhad big wins over the Swans and Bombers earlier in the year, but Richmond’s three game momentum will be tough to break.

Richmond was upset by the Kangaroos just five games ago, but their odds have bounced back putting them at -316. 

Prediction: Essenden Money Line +256

Richmond isn’t overrated, but Essendon has continued to falter in games that they should have won. They’re 5-5 in their last ten. Their last loss to Richmond wasn’t a fluke, but they’ve improved so dramatically since then we see a win. 

AFL Round 23 Adelaide vs Port Adelaide 

Airing August 20th at 05:30 AM ET
The Power faces the #14 Adelaide Crows in a match that should break Adelaides’ winning streak. Port Adelaide is 1-4 in their last five games, but have only faced teams in the top six. They gave the cats their closest game in the last ten rounds. Consider the Over 166 ½ Points bet at -115, as this matches the Power’s last four games. 

Prediction: Port Adelaide -279

The Power is a fantastic team and had an unfortunate run toward the end of the season. They should crush the Crows, especially when considering the Crows five injured players including key player Rory Sloane.

AFL Round 23: Hawthorn vs Western Bulldogs

Airing August 20h at 11:10 AM ET
Both teams are 3-2 in their last five, though the Bulldogs have had a more consistent season. Hawthorn hasn’t been challenged, winning their last three against the Kangaroos, Crows, and Eagles. 

Hawthorn hasn’t lost a final round game since 2009. 👀

Prediction: Western Bulldogs Money Line -220

Bet the Bulldogs for $45.45 in winnings per $100 wagered. Of the money lines this weekend, the Bulldogs is our value bet pick, meaning they offer the highest paying, safest bet available. 

AFL Round 23: Collingwood vs Carlton

Airing August 21th at 01:20 AM ET
The Blues are another team that didn’t live up to their season potential. They’ve dropped their last three games, and now face the #5 Collingwood. If enough teams at the top fumble a win, Collingwood can still get into the premiership with a crushing defeat of the Blues. 

Prediction: Collingwood Point Spread +½ -110

Oddsmakers see a close game, and the 2022 AFL Round 23 odds don’t include money line bets on this match. Expect Collingwood to bring their A-game, and bounce back from the loss to Sydney with a similar win to their last game with the Blues, a close 79 to 75 game. 

AFL Round 23: Swans vs St. Kilda 

Airing August 21th at 02:40 AM ET
The Swans are inches from a shot at the Premiership. They’ve won their last five games, and beat St. Kilda 83 to 32 just seven games ago. 

Prediction: Sydney Swans -300

The Swans have had games where they didn’t show up, like their loss to Essendon.

They’ve been consistent against St. Kilda, and with the #10 teams going 2-3 in recent games, expect the Swans to win with ease, putting Melbourne in the dust for a shot at the Premiership.
