Richmond vs. Collingwood
All six of Richmond’s home wins over the last 12 months were by 1-39 points and 11 of their 12 defeats during this time were by 39 points or less. All six of Collingwood’s away wins over the last 12 months were by 1-39 points and 12 of their 13 defeats during this time were by 39 points or less. I would back both Richmond 1-39 at 2.25 (BlueBet) and Collingwood 1-39 at 3.55 (Unibet).
Sydney vs. Gold Coast
Sydney have gone 6-1 on the back of a loss over the last 12 months and over the last decade they have gone 5-1 as the home favourite against the Suns. Gold Coast have lost three straight games as well as three straight away games coming into this game. The Suns have also failed to cover the line in their last three games and last three away games. Gold Coast have gone 1-5 at the line as the away underdog in their last six visits to Sydney. I would back Sydney in the head-to-head at 1.20 (BlueBet).
GWS vs. Geelong
Geelong have gone 6-1 on the back of a loss over the last 12 months and they have gone 8-1 as the away favourite over the same period. GWS have gone 2-4 both in the head-to-head and the line as the away underdog over the last 12 months. I would back Geelong in the head-to-head at 1.78 (Picklebet).
