Round 12 of the 2018 AFL Season
Jun 7th, 2018 • Footy Tipping
We start Round 12 with 6 games over the weekend as we hit the mid-season byes. The Bulldogs, Eagles, Carlton & the Hawks all having the weekend off.
Friday night footy is in Adelaide with Port Adelaide taking on Richmond, this will be a very physical game. Tough game to tip, but my gut feel is saying Port who are sitting 8th on the ladder as they need to consolidate their position in the top 8 - so Port to win by 17 points.
The Cat’s take on the inform Kangaroo’s down at Geelong, and this is another game that will be a very physical contest. With Ablett back in great form and the midfield firing, I think Geelong will be to strong and win by 24 points.
The Giants who had their best win of the season take on the struggling Gold Coast Sun’s at Spotless Stadium. The Giants will be far to strong in this contest, GWS by 40 plus points.
St Kilda take on Sydney at Etihad stadium. The Saints were very good last week against the Eagles, however the Swans who generally play this oval well should win this contest. Sydney by 15 points.
The Brisbane Lions take on Essendon up at the GABBA which promises to be a close contest. I’ve been very impressed with the Lions in a lot of their games this year, however I’m going to tip Essendon to bounce back and win this game by 21 points.
The struggling Fremantle Dockers who will be without their best player in Nat Fyfe through suspension take on the disappointing Adelaide Crows at Optus Stadium. The Dockers have been struggling to kick a convincing score in recent weeks, and it could be a very tough back end of the season for them. I’m tipping Adelaide to win by 16 points.
Last game of the round is on Melbourne’s Queens Birthday Holiday on Monday. It’s the match of the round where the red hot Demon’s take on a much improved Collingwood at the MCG and expect 75,000 plus people to turn up to watch these 2 exciting teams. I’m tipping Melbourne by 10 points as I feel they have more in form players across the ground.
Have a great weekend!!
