AFL Betting Tips – Winning result for subscribers
Collingwood had been under immense scrutiny in recent weeks and this looked a good chance for the side to get away from the prying eyes of the Melbourne media. As we predicted in our AFL Betting Tips we predicted the Eagles to come out a little under their best after a peak Derby effort. The Collingwood bounce off an ordinary month with a +18.5 and the $3 win bet was very nice result for subscribers.
AFL Grand Final 2019 Preview
Everything was on show in a stunning contest of AFL footy in what looked like an AFL Grand Final Preview. There was the blistering opening quarter that saw 12 goals kicked in a blitz from end to end. The game then became high pressure as there were only 11 goals kicked for the rest of the game as the second half in particular turned into a full blown arm wrestle.
The important thing is Collingwood can really start to build some momentum. They were back to playing for each other and had a great defensive aspect in their 2ndhalf conceding only 2 goals (none in last quarter). In truth the margin should have been a lot more it was Collingwood 23 scoring shots (11.12) to West Coast 17 (12.5). It was a 12 scoring shot to 3 second half by Collingwood that told the difference.
An “8 point game” result for Collingwood
We have spoken about the key *8 point games” as a loss here would have had Collingwood 8 points behind West Coast. However 1 point makes the difference and they stay equal second top on the AFL table on 44 points.
Both teams had major injuries to come out of the game with big Nic-Nat on the sidelined with an ankle injury fresh off the knee recon comeback. For Collingwood captain Pendlebury is on the sideline for an indefinite period with a finger injury. The Eagles need to go away and lick their wounds and figure out how a potent attack like they have can be held to two goals in a half. They front Melbourne away in a danger game whilst Collingwood face GWS in Sydney.
