2015 AFL Finals Week 1 odds and preview

afl-eagles-priddisThe West Coast Eagles will go in underdogs at home against reigning premier Hawthorn in the first 2015 AFL Qualifying Finals at Domain Stadium in Perth on Friday night.

The Hawks have dominated the Eagles of late and are $1.80 to advance to the Preliminary Final at online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au, with the Eagles at $2.05.

The second Qualifying Final on Saturday afternoon in Perth, is very one sided in early betting with Fremantle $1.33 to overcome an injury-riddled Sydney Swans at $3.40 in Perth on Saturday afternoon.

The first of the Elimination Finals on Saturday night at the MCG features the Western Bulldogs and Adelaide Crows who are $1.92 each of two with punters finding it hard to find a favourite.

Not so with the Richmond $1.64 and Nth Melbourne $2.30 clash on Sundey where the Tigers are the popular elect.

The Kangaroos will fancy themselves against the Tigers and have a great recent record against the yellow and black which makes them great value here.

West Coast vs Hawthorn recent history

Year Rd Home Pts Pts Away Venue
2015 R19 West Coast 74 88 Hawthorn Domain
2014 R12 Hawthorn 123 79 West Coast Aurora
2013 R13 Hawthorn 123 103 West Coast Etihad
2013 R2 West Coast 98 148 Hawthorn Patersons
2012 R23 Hawthorn 95 70 West Coast MCG

Hawthorn has won the past 5 matches against the West Coast including their most recent meeting at this venue in Round 19 by 14 points.

The Hawks are likely to step up the aggression now the finals are here and another win over the Eagles will have them in the box seat to make it three flags in a row.

2014 AFL Qualifying Final 2 – Dockers vs Swans Odds

Fremantle vs Sydney recent history

Year Rd Home Pts Pts Away Venue
2015 R4 Fremantle 74 60 Sydney Domain
2014 QF Sydney 93 69 Fremantle ANZ
2014 R5 Sydney 92 75 Fremantle SCG
2013 PF Fremantle 99 74 Sydney Patersons
2013 R8 Sydney 70 70 Fremantle SCG

These two sides have had some close tussles in recent meetings including a draw in 2013. They have both won twice each at home and the Dockers won their last encounter in Round 4 by 14 points.

If both sides were at their best then one would expect this to be a close match again, but with key players and injury concerns to both sides, the home team is the one most likely again.

2015 AFL Elimination Final 2 – Bulldogs vs Crows Odds

1 Teams H2H Line $1.92 Total $1.88 1-39 40+ Bet
Cats W. Bulldogs $1.92 -0.0 Over 182.5 $2.50 $6.40
Cats Adelaide $1.92 +0.0 Under 182.5 $2.50 $6.40
Saturday 12th September 2015 MCG 7.20pm AEST

Western Bulldogs vs Adelaide Crows recent history

Year Rd Home Pts Pts Away Venue
2015 R4 W Bulldogs 125 68 Adelaide Etihad
2014 R6 W Bulldogs 83 92 Adelaide Etihad
2013 R21 W Bulldogs 131 114 Adelaide Etihad
2013 R4 Adelaide 80 28 W Bulldogs AAMI
2012 R2 Adelaide 82 64 W Bulldogs AAMI

The Adelaide Crows have won three of the past five meetings although the Western Buldogs won their only clash this year in Rd 4 by a good margin at Etihad Stadium.

The last time they met at the MCG was back in 2007 when the Crows were victorious, but the Bulldogs beat them the year before at the MCG.

If anything, the MCG will favour the Crows more than the Bulldogs as the Victorian club plays their best football undwer the roof at Etihad, so has to benefit Adelaide playing at the MCG.

2015 AFL Elimination Final 2 – Tigers vs Kangaroos Odds

1 Teams H2H Line $1.92 Total $1.88 1-39 40+ Bet
Cats Richmond $1.64 -9.5 Over 169.5 $2.20 $4.70
Cats Nth Melbourne $2.30 +9.5 Under 169.5 $2.90 $11.00

Sydney vs North Melbourne recent history

Year Rd Home Pts Pts Away Venue
2015 R23 Richmond 108 67 Nth Melbourne Etihad
2015 R6 Nth Melbourne 109 74 Richmond Blundstone
2014 R12 Nth Melbourne 116 88 Richmond Etihad
2013 R15 Nth Melbourne 128 66 Richmond Etihad
2012 R17 Richmond 99 103 Nth Melbourne MCG

North Melbourne has owned Richmond in recent times but the Tigers finally got the monkey off their back with a win over a rested Kangaroo outfit in the final round.

That victory means little really considering the circumstances and recent history suggest the Kangaroos are very much over the odds and the best value for the round at their current odds.
