AFL DreamTeam Talk Bets

The DT Talk boys give us a full run down of their best player props for Round 16. Calvin, Warnie and Roy have dissected the match-ups to give us their value picks of the week.

Round 16 Matches
DT Talk Player Prop Bets
Port Adelaide v Hawthorn
(Thur 19:50)

Tips By: Calvin
Beware of the taggers! If Port employ the same tactics as they did against the Tigers, then expect Brad Ebert and Kane Mitchell to tag Jordan Lewis and Sam Mitchell. This will allow Ollie Wines to go straight to the top of my best bets tonight. He’s paying $10 to have the most touches and $5.50 for most tackles. Wines is in so good form too, and even had 27 touches and 9 tackles last week. You can also get him at $3.50 to have 30+, which in my eyes is amazing value. So, grab a frothy or a nice red ‘Wines’ and enjoy this big game from Adelaide Oval while the money pours in.
Geelong v Sydney
(Fri 19:50)

Tips By: Warnie
Big Friday night blockbuster and with so many stars from each team available, it makes it very hard to separate them in the markets. Mitch Duncan ($4.25) is value in group B for most touches but you can’t look past the value of Joel Selwood ($7.50) to lay the most tackles. He also had 35 touches last year against the Swans and will double your money if he can find the pill 30+ times.
GWS v Collingwood
(Sat 13:40)

Tips By: Roy
Heath Shaw against his old club, at home, has the making of something nasty. He’s paying $2.50 to have the most marks. Last time he played, he was tagged to just one mark by Carlton and prior to that he was averaging 12 marks a game at home this year. Shaw isn’t usually available in this market so enjoy it while it lasts.  I’m tipping GWS to absolutely dominate this game Stephen Coniglio ($4.50) to continue his form where he has found the ball 31 and 29 times in his last two games to lead all disposals on Saturday afternoon.
Gold Coast v Brisbane
(Sat 16:35)

Tips By: Calvin
In the Marcus Ashcroft Medal for the best player on the ground there is always great value. Tom Lynch ($7) should kick a big bag for the Suns and if you like value, look no further than Pearce Hanley ($14). He has torn this Q Clash game apart in recent times and is juicy odds at $4 to find the ball over 30 times. In his last four games against them he has racked up 28, 31, 45 and 30 touches.
Western Bulldogs v Richmond
(Sat 19:25)

Tips By: Calvin
115, 152, 102, 115 and 105 are Matthew Boyd’s last Fantasy scores against the Tigers and he’s paying $6.50 to lead all scorers this week. He’s coming off an impressive 129 against the Swans and to win this, he’ll need plenty of marks ($3.75) which he’ll get under the Etihad roof. Lachie Hunter ($3.25) won’t be touched in the disposal field as he continues his hot run this year. He has averaged 33 possessions in his last five under the roof and will be very tough to stop again.
Melbourne v Fremantle
(Sat 19:40)

Tips By: Calvin
Max Gawn ($4) scored 125 Fantasy points against Freo last year, and that was against Sandilands. He has averaged 126 in his last three games and is up against a rabble of a ruck department. Fear the beard, expect 130+. Lachie Neale had 34 touches on the Demons last year and is paying just over double your money to win the possession market again. Michael Walters ($5) is good value in group B with Michael Barlow on the sidelines. He should get more midfield time and therefore more ball. Walters had 26 in round 8 when Barlow missed and even clocked up 28 last week. In group B he doesn’t have much competition and should get the job done at good value.
