AFLW Betting Tips - Game-by-game guide to Round 7

  • All the news and predictions as we head into Round 7 of the AFLW.

We head into the last round of the AFLW home and away series and of the competition's 10 sides, all but three remain in the hunt for a finals berth. 

Here is our preview of all the action. 

Friday 15 March, 7.15pm at UNSW Canberra Oval

The opening game pits the GWS Giants against Geelong and the Cats can guarantee themselves a finals spot with a win. They went down by 36 points to Fremantle last weekend, leaving the door open for the Brisbane Lions in Conference B. Meg McDonald shapes as a key player for the visitors, who also welcome back Madeleine Boyd from suspension. GWS will be playing for pride and come off a 32 point loss to Adelaide. They have won just one of six this season and that came in Round 4 against Collingwood. 

Saturday 16 March, 4.45pm at Casey Fields

This is the first of two key games on Saturday. Melbourne need to win to be any chance of sneaking into the top two. Unless the Fremantle and North game results in either a draw or a massive margin, the Demons will land in the top two of Conference B. Adelaide will finish on top if they win, while a loss may still see them sneak into the two on percentage. With Erin Phillips, Ebony Marinoff and Stevie-Lee Thompson all in good form they will be hard to beat. Melbourne just edged past the Western Bulldogs by a solitary point last weekend and a number of their games have been close. This clash should be no exception. 

Saturday 16 March, 7.15pm at Fremantle Oval

The two sides will know where they stand following the Melbourne and Adelaide game. They sit in 2nd and 3rd positions in Conference A as we head into the final weekend. North Melbourne were the early pacesetters and have won five of six, including last weekend's 22 point win over Collingwood. The Dockers have also won five of six and were big winners over Geelong in Round 6. Look for the former Magpies in Emma King, Mo Hope, Jess Duffin and Jasmine Garner help steer the Roos over the line here.  

Sunday 17 March, 2.05pm at Victoria Park

Brisbane sit in 3rd position in Conference B and will need a win to qualify. They may also need a big percentage booster depending on how Geelong and Carlton fare over the course of the weekend. The Lions went down to the Blues by 16 points in Round 6 and will need big efforts from a host of their younger players. Collingwood will be out to avoid the wooden spoon and are winless in AFL v3. If they knock over Brisbane and GWS lose they will leapfrog the Giants. 

Sunday 17 March, 4.05pm at Whitten Oval

The final game of Round 7 sees the Western Bulldogs take on Carlton at Whitten Oval. The Dogs are in bottom spot in Conference A and out of contention, while the Blues lead Conference B. Unless they lose by a huge margin and Brisbane enjoy a similarly large win, Daniel Harford's side appear to be safe no matter what the outcome but a win will guarantee them a home final. The improvers in the latter half of this season. Carlton should grab the points in what shapes as a close one to end the regular season.
