Round 18 Matches
DT Talk Player Prop Bets
Collingwood v Nth Melbourne
(Fri 19:50)

Tips By: Roy
Straight away, Steele Sidebottom stands out to me as instant value tonight. Paying $7 to have the most touches, he had 31 against the Roos last year and at juicy odds, he’s worth a look. Levi Greenwood will most likely run with the Kangaroo’s most dangerous player in Daniel Wells. Therefore, in the head to head market for disposals, take Nick Dal Santo ($1.88) to beat him hands down. Taylor Adams has returned from injury with back to back Fantasy 100’s and at $4.50, he’s every chance to take the chocolates tonight.
Sydney v Carlton
(Sat 13:45)

Tips By: Calvin
It’s always tough splitting the Sydney midfielders, so I’ve gone straight to the AFL Fantasy market to find Tom Mitchell ($4.25). He had a game high 143 against the Blues in round two and back at the SCG, he’ll he huge again. Last week, Mitchell had 26 handballs, yep 26 against the Hawks, eight clear of Kennedy and Parker. He’s paying a very nice $4.50 to be handball happy again. Buddy Franklin ($5.50) is always a chance to take the most marks and the way he’s been pushing up the ground in recent weeks, he’d be every chance to push double figures here.
Gold Coast v Fremantle
(Sat 14:10)

Tips By: Warnie
Firstly, I can’t believe that the Suns ($1.70) are favourites here in a game I think they will be beaten by 25+ points by the Dockers ($4.50). No Ablett, Hall, Risky-telly and Prestia means their midfield will struggle and therefore Lachie Neale doing what he pleases through the middle. Neale is $1.50 to have the most touches ($1.40 over 30) and will have enough to win this by half time. Jesse Lonergan will play a fair bit more midfield now and therefore this tackling beast ($4.75) will get busy and will potentially push double figures in a weak field where Chris Mayne is the favourite ($3.30).
West Coast v Melbourne
(Sat 16:35)

Tips By: Roy
The Eagles have bought in Giles to assist Lycett in the ruck this week because they are scared, as they should be, of Max Gawn. He’s paying $4 to lead all Fantasy scorers but I think there is better value in someone like Jack Viney ($5). Viney has scored 123 and 117 in his last two games and has been on fire. He’s been boosting his score each week with tackles ($4.50) and is at good odds again this week, but needs to account for Priddis ($2.10). He’s the one I’ll be rolling with as he has had double figure tackles in five of his last eight games.
Western Bulldogs v St Kilda
(Sat 19:25)

Tips By: Warnie
Where’s Lachie Hunter…. Oh there he is and WOW! $4.50 to have the most touches is something I’ll be having a piece of. He had 35 against the Saints in round two with 10 marks. Hunter loves a little kick to kick and at $6.50, he’s a red hot chance to win the mark category as well. Why not put all your eggs in one basket and back him in with Fantasy points as well. He had 130 against the Saints earlier this year and 110 last week. He’s at $3.75 to win that category as well. As you can see… I’m tipping that Lachie will have a very big day.
Geelong v Adelaide
(Sat 19:25)

Tips By: Calvin
As expected, Dangerfield ($2.75) is very short to take out the Fantasy market here and should do it with ease. He had 129 on the Crows in round eight and this week, he’s at home where he has averaged 119 this year. Joel Selwood had a game high nine tackles last week and won me my lunch money for the week and this week he’s once again at great odds ($8) again.
