Round 17 of the 2018 AFL Season

We start round 17 again with the popular Thursday night footy in Adelaide. The desperate Adelaide Crows take on the Geelong Cats in what should be a hard fought contest.

I’m going to tip the Crows on their home ground as this is their season on the line, they will want to finish the season off well if they are to make this years finals. Crows by 17 points.

Friday night footy at Etihad Stadium and I’m amazed that these 2 struggling sides get prime time TV slots. They are at the bottom of the ladder and playing some of the worst football I’ve seen in some years, anyhow Saints to win by 10 points.

4 games on Super Saturday starting in Tasmania with the Hawks taking on the recently impressive Brisbane Lions going for 3 wins in a row. With the good form and high scoring of the Hawks, and their very good record at this venue it’s hard to tip against them, so Hawthorn by 23 points.

Melbourne take on the Western Bulldogs at the MCG. This will be a good game to watch as both teams have displayed decent football in recent weeks, but I think the high scoring Demon’s and their ruckman Max Gawn will be to good and will win by 21 points.

The struggling Gold Coast Suns take on Essendon at home and both sides this year have played some really poor football. The Bombers seemed to have a better forward line that can kick a winning score so I’ll tip Essendon to win by 15 points.

GWS take on the red hot Richmond Tigers at their home ground Spotless Stadium. The Giants had their chances to win last week away against the Eagles however their poor kicking at goals cost them. I feel the Giants are still a side to be weary of and the Tigers have been up for a long time, so I’m tipping GWS in a real close game by 9 points.

3 games on Sunday to finish off the round and we start with a Block Buster at the MCG and it’s Collingwood going for 8 straight wins in a row taking on the West Coast Eagles. Both sides are looking to cement their position in the top 4. The Eagles were back on the winning list last week and with a possible few good players back like Darling and Barrass it’s time for the Eagles to get a big scalp at the home of Football. I’m tipping the Eagles to win by 13 points.

North Melbourne’s chance of a top 8 finish is on the line from here on and they take on the Swans who lost last week again on their home ground. The Swans lack of pace is a concern, and with a few key players out they will come up against a tough Kangaroo’s side. This is hard to tip however I’ll go Sydney as they always find a way in adversity. Swans by 18 points.

Last game of the round and it’s in Perth with the Fremantle Dockers taking on the inform Port Adelaide Power. Fremantle are really struggling to put a winning score together consistently, and the high scoring Power with Grey and Dixon, I’m tipping Port Adelaide to win by 25 points.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the footy.

Jako.
