After snaring a $194 collect from $10 in Round 4, we are back at it again for another 5-leg multi for Round 5, which begins on Friday night when Port Adelaide take on Carlton at the Adelaide Oval.
This week, were are looking to go even bigger and have picked out a 5-leg multi, which pays $268 for a $10 outlay with CrownBet, who offer money back if four of the five legs get up.
Here are our selections.
Saturday April 22 - Gold Coast Suns v Adelaide Crows, Metricon Stadium (4.35pm)
This should be an entertaining game between Gold Coast and the unbeaten Adelaide Crows outfit. Both sides play an attractive brand of footy and the Crows head in as strong favourite’s but we are backing the home side to stay within the 1-39 point margin to kick start our multi. Adelaide have won four from four with three of those coming at the Adelaide Oval, while the other was a fighting 24 point win over a struggling Hawthorn at the MCG. The Suns can match motors with the Crows in the middle of the ground. A concern is the absence of Steven May but if they set up as well as they have defensively over the last couple of weeks they can go some way to restricting the Crows scoring prowess.
Saturday April 22 - Sydney Swans v GWS Giants, SCG (7.25pm)
Sydney will be looking to put a poor start behind them when they take on local rivals, GWS, on Saturday night at the SCG, a venue where the Giants have never enjoyed a win over Sydney. The Swans may just be the best 0-4 side in history and finally welcome back a host of star players. With their season on the line, they should come out firing. Look for a lift from Daniel Hannebery and Luke Parker and with some fitness doubts over a number of the Giants players, this one should go right down to the wire.
Sunday April 23 - St Kilda v Geelong, Etihad Stadium (3.20pm)
An interesting game will be played out when St Kilda and Geelong square off at Etihad Stadium. The Saints are generally very strong at the venue and come off a win over Collingwood last weekend. Geelong sit 0-4 but it is hard to read into their form at the moment. They feasted on an out of sorts Hawthorn lineup last weekend and the week prior they benefitted against a Melbourne unit that lost some key players during the game. The two sides have played out a couple of thrillers at Etihad in recent years. St Kilda rolled Geelong at the venue by three points in Round 14 the last time they met and in 2015, the two sides played out a draw in Round 21. This should be another close one and the Saints represent the value at the line.
Sunday April 23 - Hawthorn v West Coast Eagles, MCG (4.40pm)
West Coast Eagles (-18.5) $1.92 at CrownBet
We are looking to cash in again by backing against the Hawks and it is very tempting to take the line that has been set for West Coast. Hawthorn's problems have been well documented and while the Eagles have hardly been inspiring in their trips to the MCG over the last couple of years, they should have no trouble in accounting for their conquerors from the 2015 Grand Final. Hawthorn has been conceding a stack of goals in quick time in recent games. The likes of Josh Kennedy and Mark LeCras should ensure the visitors come away with a win by over the three-goal margin.
Monday April 24 - Richmond v Melbourne, MCG (7.25pm)
On Monday night it is Richmond and Melbourne that go head to head in the ANZAC Eve clash and the Tigers are worth sticking with as they aim to make it five from five. Damien Hardwick's side has generally held their form on the occasions that they have been up and about in recent years, while Melbourne are in a mini slump. Some may argue that the Tigers have not beaten anyone yet but it is hard to fault their form and we are backing them in to get the job done.
Betting on AFL
AFL betting is available on a range of markets, including the premiership, NAB Cup, Brownlow Medal and Coleman Medal.
The Australian Football League (AFL) is the heart and soul of Australia. It’s the number one sport in the country and provides the sporting heartbeat of a proud sports loving nation. From remote outback Northern Territory to the southern tip of Tasmania, we love our AFL footy. And it seems it’s only getting bigger and bigger.
Never before in the AFL’s more than 150 year history has the game been healthier. AFL club memberships are up. Crowds are up. AFL revenue is up. Even the number of teams competing is up. And add to that list AFL betting, which is seeing a big rise in punters. Especially online.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have noticed that with the advancements in technology and the internet, more and more tasks can be done from your home PC. Things like internet banking and personal investing are all done online and taken for granted now. The good news is, sports betting is online too. And it’s better, easier and safer than ever before.
No longer do you need to pop out during your work lunch break to visit a betting branch. The days of queuing up to place a bet on your footy team are well and truly a thing of the past. If you love your footy, you can now join sites like Ladbrokes
to setup an account and bet from the comfort of your own home or office. That means less time waiting and more time betting.
Multibets are an extremely popular way to bet and we show you how to place your multis and win big with our essential guide.
First of all, multis offer a great way to secure big winning returns on your bets as you combine various bets into one.
A multibet can be placed at bookmakers like CrownBet
, who offer the opportunity to combine any number of bets from two to 25 into one single bet.
Each individual bet is referred to as a “leg” of a multibet and you will need all results to go your way to bag a winner.
The payout from each leg of the bet is used as the stake for each following leg in your multi bet, until all legs are completed.
So if you placed $5.00 on the Golden State Warriors to win at $2.00, you would win $10. That $10 would then go onto the next leg of your multi and so on.
By the time you get to the last leg of the bet, you could have a vast amount of money being staked.
If you're brave, you'll let it all roll on the last result. If you're not, you may wish to cash out with Sportsbet now offering the chance to get out of bets early for a guaranteed return.
Multibets can turn small stakes into something big - and many punters have done so, including one individual who won $49,000 from two separate multis on the same day.
