Punters interested in the most competitive Round 7 AFL game will probably find the number two Geelong Cats versus number six West Coast Eagles the best choice on a week when there are some unadulterated walkovers on the fixture.
The Cats have the home ground advantage and a $1.45 to $2.75 odds advantage at the moment from Sportsbet.
North Melbourne Roos are a good punt to remain unbeaten, as they visit the Saints. The Swans also look to improve their record as they host the Essendon Bombers.
Collingwood Magpies versus Carlton Blues might be interesting in terms of competition as the two sides have identical, albeit unremarkable records.
Richmond Tigers have Hawks coming for a visit and whilst last year’s premiers are heavy $1.09 to $7.50 favourites, the Hawks have slipped a bit this season and currently occupy the eighth and final finals slot, so they appear slightly more vulnerable than their 4 – 0 record would intimate.
If one were to guess, it would appear that after Round 7, there will be just one unbeaten team. The larger question would be whether Fremantle can catch the Bombers for 17th position, but in order to do so, they have to deal with number five GWS Giants. Sportsbet has the match priced at $1.29/$3.66.
