Round Four, 2015 AFL Tipping Guide

Boydz N The Hood AFL Weekly Tipping Guide

Richmond vs Melbourne at the MCG

Head Tip: A comparison of the two teams so far this season has Richmond slightly ahead in form and playing depth. Combine those aspects with this being a Richmond home game and Tiger fans should be cheering tonight.

Heart Tip: Melbourne’s Round One win over the Suns showed the team has the firepower to be taken seriously.

Chance of Winning

Tigers 60%

Demons 40%


St Kilda vs Carlton at WS (NZ)

Head Tip: St Kilda are playing their third successive home game in New Zealand and with key outs to Carlton should take home a win on their flight back to Australia.

Heart Tip: There is a likelihood that Carlton will play with a nothing-to-lose attitude due to key players being sidelined at the moment. If so, they could overwhelm the Saints and produce a gutsy win.

Chance of Winning

Saints 60%

Blues 40%


Essendon vs Collingwood at the MCG

Head Tip: Superior team depth for Essendon makes them the natural team to pick. So far this season, they have gone close against Sydney, beaten Hawthorn and had a clear win over Carlton making them arguably one of the most in-form teams in the competition.  

Heart Tip: The ANZAC day clash is an important focal point on the football calendar in Australia – Collingwood will be ready to give their best in this game.

Chance of Winning

Bombers 55%

Magpies 45%


Greater Western Sydney vs Gold Coast at SO

Head Tip: The opportunity to start the season 3-1 should be incentive enough for the Giants and that possibility isn’t based on false hope, the club has shown they are formidable against anyone, anywhere.

Heart Tip: The Suns are yet to lose to the Giants, perhaps the psychological edge will lead to a Gold Coast victory.

Chance of Winning

Giants 60%

Suns 40%


Fremantle vs Sydney at DS

Head Tip: Both of these teams are potential top-four finishers and really look the goods this season. Fremantle is our tip, purely because they are at home.

Heart Tip: With such quality across the field for both teams, there isn’t a foolish pick out of either team and it wouldn’t be a surprise if Sydney are able to secure the away-win.

Chance of Winning

Dockers 55%

Swans 45%


Port Adelaide vs Hawthorn at AO

Head Tip: Set up the double screen for Saturday night because two absolute cracking games between Fremantle and Sydney and Port Adelaide and Hawthorn will be on!! Hawthorn get our tip for this contest, because while the Power’s list is almost back at full strength, key players in Matthew Lobbe and Kane Cornes may need a week before being at their best.

Heart Tip: Port’s resilience against the possibility of an 0-3 start to the season last week was amazing. At home with a deafening crowd they are more than a good chance.

Chance of Winning

Power 45%

Hawks 55%


Brisbane vs West Coast at GABBA

Head Tip: In search of their first win, the Lions should come out victors with a point to prove to their supporters and their coaching staff.

Heart Tip: The Eagles are a reasonable chance and have played some better football than Brisbane. There is a possibility one or more of the Eagles’ star forwards could kick a bag this week.

Chance of Winning

Lions 55%

Eagles 45%


Geelong vs North Melbourne at SS

Head Tip: The head says if there was ever a time to beat Geelong at home, it is now. North Melbourne put in a good showing last week against Port Adelaide and will be hungry for a win!

Heart Tip: Geelong at home have an opportunity to prove the depth of their list with key players out due to injury.

Chance of Winning

Cats 45%

Kangaroos 55%


Western Bulldogs vs Adelaide at SS

Head Tip: There has been much going right for Adelaide so far this season and form suggests they will be able to impose themselves on the Bulldogs over four quarters.

Heart Tip: One of the surprising teams so far this season, definitely a chance and could be 3-1 after this week if they can stop the Crows winning-streak. 

Chance of Winning

Bulldogs 40%

Crows 60%


Happy tipping!
