Sean Callander's Round 21 AFL Preview

Posted at 18:53 2010-08-20

Just two weeks of regular season AFL betting for the year. The footy season goes fast! Sean Callander is still hard at it, trying to squeeze out some value in the twilight of the season.


Carlton beat the Cats earlier this season but have never beaten Geelong at Etihad Stadium. Expect that trend to continue this evening, especially after the Cats devastating effort last week. A small play at the -30.5 on Geelong worth considering, and one-unit at the +198.5 game total.

Richmond hasn’t beaten St Kilda since round three of 2003. Little expectation of the young Tiges righting that statistic this week, with the Saints deserved favourites. The 44.5 line is imposing, but St Kilda is gaining momentum and wouldn’t be surprised to see them cover.

Fremantle’s omission of several key players in preparation for next week’s must-win clash at home against Carlton has made a farce of the clash against Hawthorn in Launceston. Hawks will win but not keen to bet on a game with so many unknowns and featuring two of the most inconsistent sides of 2010.

Collingwood starts a nine-goal favourite against Adelaide. The Magpies may be tempted to ease off the peddle this week and while I’m not suggesting they’ll be beaten, the Crows may be worth a unit at the +54.5 after turning in a solid effort against Brisbane last week.

Fascinating clash between Sydney and Footscray at the SCG, with value galore for the punters. It’s the home farewell for Paul Roos and Brett Kirk, and I expect the Swans to be “up” for this one. The Dogs will be desperate to atone for last week’s shocker, but I’m tipping the Swans at home, and any game total over 190 points.

Happy to see Port open as underdogs at home against a Melbourne side that has a horrible record at AAMI Stadium. With the Demons’ aspirations of finals officially snuffed out, suspect they might be a bit flat for this one so the Power to win (worth one unit at $2) and expecting a game total under 160 points.

It’s been a shocking week off the park for Essendon, and I’m fully expecting they’ll be just as bereft on the field when they visit the Gabba to take on the Lions. Jonathan Brown is back for his 200th and the Lions are fielding one of their best sides of the season so loading up on the home side at $2.30 (BEST BET). I have this pegged as one of the best bets of the season.

Brent Harvey’s 300th highlights North’s visit to Subiaco but the Roos have a terrible record in Perth. The Eagles may in the box seat to claim the wooden spoon but have a solid chance to claiming one more big scalp before the end of 2010. I’m leaning towards West Coast, which makes the $2.10 too good to ignore for a small play. Numbers indicate a game total of 180-190.
