A lot of people take their footy seriously; too seriously, it seems at times, while others do not take their footy seriously enough.
We might easily be plonked in that second category, but we still try our hardest when we make our fantasy tips.
To say this edition of the Toyota 2020 AFL Premiership competition has been difficult to tip with consistency is an understatement of magnitude, but here are our guesses for Round 10 of the competition.
We do not suggest anyone bet according to these predictions. We are having issues simply keeping the fixture straight.
While we were snoozing, metaphorically, four clubs played matches.
Port beat Western Bulldogs 55 – 42 in Adelaide in front of nearly 15,000 spectators. Richmond Tigers out-big-catted the Brisbane Lions 82 – 41 at Metricon.
Four clubs have the week away, so this should be an easy one.
We stake $100 of monopoly money on each fixture and bet only the head-to-head, leaving the lines and all the other markets to the keener tippers.
The two Wednesday night! games will see Geelong Cats play North Melbourne at the Gabba and Adelaide Crows try to break their nine-game duck against the Dees.
We did not even need to look at the prices to pick Geelong, but this lock punt is only offering $1.38 with Ladbrokes.
Adelaide and Melbourne were quoting the exact same figures, but we will take the hard way and back the Crows for $3.25. They have to win sooner or later is our logic.
Collingwood versus Sydney should be as easy as pie for the Magpies. We take Collingwood for the paltry $1.35 quote, expecting a dive from the Swans.
Gold Coast Suns play St. Kilda Saints at Metricon Stadium and while the Suns deserve our prayers, the Saints are our pick for $1.53.
Collingwood v. Sydney and Suns v. Saints should liven usually dull Thursday evenings.
Essendon Bombers versus GWS concludes the abbreviated round.
True to our contrarian natures, we are picking the Bombers to drop a loss on GWS for a quote of $2.75.
