AFL Best Bets Round 21

Hawthorn head-to-head at $1.92

Despite the Suns being slight betting favourites for this matchup in Launceston, our model is favouring Hawthorn to win.

The Hawks have been in decent form of late, winning three of their last four by 25+ points and almost coming back to beat St Kilda last weekend.

Our fair odds for Hawthorn to defeat the Gold Coast are $1.83, with the best odds of $1.92 coming from TopSport.

Hawthorn vs Gold Coast is at the University of Tasmania Stadium on Saturday, August 6 at 1:45pm AEST.

Western Bulldogs -12.5 at $1.91

The Bulldogs have won seven of their last 11 (two of the losses were against Geelong) and are starting to look like a dangerous September side once again.

Fremantle on the other hand have now failed to win in their last three games and appear to be sliding at an unfortunate time.

With the Bulldogs in form and our model projecting them as a 73% chance of winning this week, our bet for this one is Western Bulldogs -12.5 meaning they need to win by 13+.

Our implied fair odds for this bet are $1.79, making the $1.91 on offer at bet365 look like a smart bet.

Western Bulldogs vs Fremantle is at Marvel Stadium on Saturday, August 6 at 4:35pm AEST.

Isaac Smith Anytime Goal at $2.75

After starting the season slow on a goal scoring front, Geelong's Isaac Smith has now kicked a goal in five of his last seven, with his anytime goal odds consistently above $2.

With Geelong back on their home ground and our model projecting them to win by 33 points against St Kilda, we could see a lot of individual goal kickers for the Cats this week.

Despite the Saints winning the last time these two teams played, Smith was still able to find the scoreboard, kicking 1.1 at Marvel Stadium.

Our fair odds for an Isaac Smith anytime goal this week are $1.81, whilst the best odds available are from Pointsbet at $2.75.

Geelong vs St Kilda is at GMHBA Stadium on Saturday, August 6 at 7:25pm AEST.
