먹튀검증18 will hopefully be a more successful week for us in the footy tipping with a few less upsets.
There isn’t any clear game of the round this week but I think the Carlton V Collingwood game will once again live up to standards and be the most entertaining. The Pies can all but end Carlton’s season with a win here where Carlton has the chance to spoil the near perfect season for Collingwood and maybe start their demise in 2022, fingers crossed!
Best Bet for Round 18
This week I’m taking a simple Freo win bet, although at 1.42 it is pretty short online kazino but they are very likely to win the match.
Another great bet for this round is a straight out Richmond win at 2.44. A great way to ensure this win is to take up the new offer that Betfair has. Simply place your first bet with them and if it loses Betfair will refund that amount up to $50 cash.

Essendon V St Kilda Friday night at Etihad Stadium
Tip: St Kilda
Odds: Essendon 5.60 St Kilda 1.21
St Kilda will be out to reverse the result from earlier this season and get the win over Essendon. They also have the incentive of a top 4 spot as the teams below start to threaten. Both these points and the fact they are a much stronger and tight knit team will see them get over the line.
The even $2.00 line bet for Essendon is a 28.5 point head start. I think there’s plenty of value for them in this market as its likely St Kilda will try to put the freeze on for majority of the match.
Collingwood V Carlton Saturday at the MCG
Odds: Collingwood 1.21 Carlton 5.60
The Pies are very hard to exploit with a evenness across the whole team. This will be the biggest struggle for Carlton who have a few weaknesses around the ground.
My prediction is the Pies by 30 points. They will be out to extend their percentage to stop any chance of the other teams with a draw (St Kilda/Hawthorn) finishing above them.
Port Adelaide V Hawthorn Saturday at AAMI Stadium
Odds: Port 3.40 Hawks: 1.39
The Hawks need to win majority of their games for the rest of the season to have any real chance in 2022 especially teams out of the top 8. The pretty much full strength Hawks should easily over come any Port Adelaide rally and get the win.
Keep an eye on Shaun Burgoyne, its his first game at AAMI Stadium since leaving SA and will be out to silence the crowd. I’m sure the Port boys will let him know they are there too.
Brisbane V Melbourne Saturday night at the Gabba
Odds: Brisbane 1.90 Melbourne 2.04
This is a true test for the Lions who have gone from top 4 form at the start of the season to be out of the 8 now. They should have the edge over Melbourne playing at home that should just get them over the line.
Melbourne will be confident of getting the result with Brad Green and James Frawley in All-Australian contention this year but I think the Lions in a close one.
Sydney V Geelong Saturday night at ANZ Stadium
Odds: Sydney 4.90 Geelong: 1.25
Sydney have had a disappointing last month and I predict this to continue into this game.
Geelong has a full strength side and need to continue to win to regain the important 1st position on the ladder from Collingwood. This should give them the motivation to play the game out well.
Richmond V Adelaide Sunday at the MCG
Odds: Richmond 2.44 Adelaide 1.68
Although the bookies think otherwise I expect Richmond to take the 4 points at the MCG.
They were up against it last week against the Pies but playing the Crows at the “G” will be a much better match up for them. The Tigers will have the belief they can win again as they did last month when they played some great football.
For those unsure if the Tigers can do it take the 7.5 point head start paying 2.00 at Betfair here.
Western Bulldogs V North Melbourne Sunday at Etihad Stadium
Odds: Bulldogs 1.20 North 5.50
North will need to take risks this weekend to get over the Bulldogs and this is where it will come undone for them. They have been too inconsistent this year and will struggle with the Bulldogs run though the midfield.
The Bulldogs are great on the turn overs and will catch the Kangaroos out enough times to get a comfortable win.
