Round 22 Matches
DT Talk Player Prop Bets
West Coast Eagles v Hawthorn
(Fri 20:10)

Tips By: Roy
With this one starting a little later than usual, you’ve got plenty of time to get on some rippers. Jordan Lewis has been on fire since round 11 and hasn’t put a foot wrong. He had 126 AFL Fantasy points last week and is paying $4 to take the chocolates tonight. The best bet for the night though is Matt Priddis to lay the most tackles ($3.25).  Priddis and Liam Shiels ($3) share the honour as the league’s best tackler at the moment averaging 8.4 a game, but tonight I’ll be all over Priddis to move ahead on his home ground.
North Melbourne v Sydney
(Sat 13:45)

Tips By: Calvin
Last week against the Roos, the Hawks accumulated massive numbers with midfielders Smith and Lewis combining for 21 marks. A roughie in this category has to be Callum Mills ($9). He was one off a team high with 8 marks last week and at that value, he’s worth a cheeky look. Josh P. Kennedy ($3) is always a sure bet for most handballs and when you look over his last four games you can see why. 26, 15, 29 and 23 are the amount of times he’s put fist to ball and if he can crack that 20+ mark again, it’s money in the bag.
Richmond v St Kilda
(Sat 14:10)

Tips By: Warnie
The out of form Jack Steven ($5) is great value here for most touches, but he’s running like a donkey on three legs at the moment. He can’t find the ball, but against the Tigers at that value, I think this will be his bounce back game. Since returning from injury, Bachar Houli has been on fire averaging 10 marks a game in his last three. At $6, he’ll need to beat Nick Riewoldt but with the form he is in, he can certainly give it a mighty shake on the MCG.
GWS v Fremantle
(Sat 16:35)

Tips By: Roy
Oh dear… I’ve found you some gold. Stephen Coniglio is a pony I have been whipping for a few rounds now and this week he’ll be even bigger against the struggling Dockers. At $3.50 for most touches is just too good to ignore. Cogs hasn’t gone under 28 disposals in his last eight games and in round 7 against Fremantle he found the pill 32 times.
Collingwood v Gold Coast
(Sat 19:25)

Tips By: Warnie
Brodie Grundy has averaged 115 Fantasy points in his last three games and against Gold Coast’s rookie ruckman Keegan Brooksby, he should have field day. He’s paying $7 and shouldn’t be overlooked at that value. Under the Etihad roof, I’ll be expecting plenty of clean ball movement across the back half by the Pies. Jeremy Howe pulled in 11 marks last week and is paying $5.50 to do it again.
Port Adelaide v Adelaide
(Sat 19:40)

Tips By: Calvin
The Showdown always produces something special and this time it might be Matt Crouch who steps up, just like he has over the last month averaging 30 touches a game. He’s paying $4.50 and based on his form, he’ll be very close at the final siren. Sam Gray ($5.50) has finally hit some form and can be picked in group B to find the pill the most times. He has averaged 25 touches over the last month and after a poor start to the year, he’s fought his way back into Port’s best-22.
