Adelaide Crows vs Fremantle - AFL Betting Tips 05-05-2019
Imagine the odds you’d have got on Fremantle being second on the AFL ladder a quarter of the way through the 2019 AFL season! The Dockers are still way behind the Crows in AFL premiership betting markets, but the bookies will need to revise their odds if they win at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.
Adelaide v Fremantle Preview
The Adelaide Crows are slowly turning their ship around after a disastrous start to the 2019 AFL season. Don Pyke’s men started with three losses from four, but backed up a thrashing of Gold Coast with a comfortable win over in-form St Kilda. Their focus will now be on finding form at home, where they’re 1-2 after early-season losses to Hawthorn and Geelong. Adelaide would have pencilled this match in as a win prior to the season, but Freo’s good form will make them think again.
Fremantle may well be the surprise packet of this AFL season. They backed up their upset win over GWS with a home victory over the Bulldogs in round six. The most impressive thing about the win over the Dogs was that they achieved it despite being beaten in the centre clearances. Ross Lyon will be tempted to rush Connor Blakely back into the midfield after the star returned from injury in the WAFL on the weekend.
Adelaide v Fremantle Betting Tips
Both these teams have been nightmares for tipsters the last couple of years, and this season is no different. We know Adelaide at their best are hard to beat, but will the good version of the Crows turn up? Fremantle have shown they can match it with anyone this year, but will the bubble eventually burst? The Dockers haven’t lost by more than 13 points this season, so we’re confident taking them at 21.5 points at the line with bet365.
Adelaide will be desperate to avoid a third home loss from four, so it’s worth considering Neds’ offer of 2.05 on the Crows to win by 1-39 points.
