Daily Sports Tips – Saturday 27th August
Geelong vs Melbourne
Melbourne To Beat The Line (+31.5
Melbourne were nothing short of awful against Carlton last weekend, but I expect them to produce an improved performance this weekend. They have been 6-2 as away underdogs this season, while Geelong have struggled somewhat as favourites at Simonds Stadium this season. I am more than happy to back the Demons with the start.
Manly Sea Eagles vs Canberra Raiders
Over 44.5 Points
Defence is not the strength of either the Manly Sea Eagles or the Canberra Raiders. The over has been a positive betting play in games involving both these sides this season and five of the past six games played between them have ended in the over.
Gold Coast Suns vs Port Adelaide
Port Adelaide To Beat The Line (-20.5 Points)
The Gold Coast Suns have been truly woeful in 2016 and it is tough to see them finishing the season with a flourish. The Suns have not won a game as home underdogs this season and their record against the line in this scenario is extremely poor. Port Adelaide are a better outfit than the Suns and they are 4-3 against the line as home favourites.
North Melbourne vs GWS Giants
North Melbourne To Beat The Line (+12.5 Points)
It has been a rocky week to say the least for the North Melbourne Kangaroos, but I think that they are still capable of getting the job done on the field. North Melbourne are 2-0 against the line as home underdogs this season, while the Giants are just 3-6 as away favourites. North Melbourne will give the Giants a scare heading into the finals.
