Hawthorn vs Sydney at the MCG

Head Tip: Sydney has won 10 of the past 11 games and is arguably the form team of the comp. The Swans are the smart tip on what will be a blockbuster Friday night!

Heart Tip: The one game the Swans lost among those 11 mentioned…. was against the Hawks! Hawthorn seems to match up well against Sydney and a Friday night game at the MCG could be the perfect stage to halt the Swans’ run.

Chance of winning:

Hawks 45%

Swans 55%

North Melbourne vs Melbourne at BA

Head Tip: Melbourne has got some important players back healthy and in good form. The Demons are the logical tip here after an impressive win against Port Adelaide last week.

Heart Tip: North play this ground in Tasmania extremely well and have a good history there, including a monster win over the ladder-leading Crows earlier this year. Could another upset be on the cards?

Chance of winning:

Kangaroos 35%

Demons 65%

GWS vs Fremantle at SPO

Head Tip: Expect GWS to bounce back at home against the struggling Dockers after a rough loss last week.

Heart Tip: Fremantle have been competitive in most games this season and will need a big effort from the younger players in the team to get across the line. There are some big outs in Shane Mumford and Toby Greene for the Giants as well.

Chance of winning:

Giants 70%

Dockers 30%

Port Adelaide vs St Kilda at AO

Head Tip: Another bounce-back game on the cards here, with the Power being eager to atone for a loss to the Demons last week; expect them to do so at home this weekend.

Heart Tip: St Kilda needs a win to stay in contention for the top eight and will be desperate to get across the line in Adelaide.

Chance of winning:

Power 70%

Saints 30%

Gold Coast vs Richmond at MS

Head Tip: Richmond made a statement last week against the Giants and will be the safe tip here as they look to solidify a spot in the top four.

Heart Tip: Gold Coast have been consistent at home this season and also have a solid record against the Tigers; this could be a lot closer than many think! Some handy ins with Steven May and Gary Ablett Jr coming into the team as well!

Chance of winning:

Suns 40%

Tigers 60%

Carlton vs Geelong at ES

Head Tip: Expect Geelong to atone for the loss in Adelaide last week and make a big statement to solidify a top two spot.

Heart Tip: Geelong seem to make a habit of losing to teams they should beat; could another upset, like the one where Carlton beat Geelong last year ;), be a chance this weekend?

Chance of winning:

Blues 30%

Cats 70%

Western Bulldogs vs Essendon at ES

Head Tip: Aside from what now appeared to be an outlier against Brisbane, the Bombers have been extremely impressive in the past month and will look to separate themselves from a Bulldogs team with the same win/loss record. Massive finals implications hang on this game!

Heart Tip: Winning form is good form and the Bulldogs have managed to string together two wins a row. A win would push them into the top eight and loss will make it extremely tough… huge game for both teams!

Chance of winning:

Bulldogs 45%

Bombers 55%

Collingwood vs Adelaide at the MCG

Head Tip: You would be brave to tip against the Crows versus anyone at the moment after a dominant win over the second placed Geelong last round. Expect the Crows to strengthen the grip on top spot.

Heart Tip: Can’t sum up “heart” more than what Collingwood produced last weekend in the fourth quarter, with two injuries and no Scott Pendlebury! Can they keep the momentum going against the top team? Eddie Betts and Brad Crouch are also huge outs for the Crows this week!

Chance of winning:

Magpies 30%

Crows 70%

West Coast vs Brisbane at DS

Head Tip: West Coast are always a solid tip at home and should account for the Lions who sit at the bottom of the ladder.

Heart Tip: The Lions managed their fourth win last week and have been competitive in the last month. West Coast fell apart last round and this could be a danger game for them if they don’t turn things around.

Chance of winning:

Eagles 75%

Lions 25%

Happy tipping!
