Adelaide v West Coast

You'd be a bloody brave man not to be tipping Adelaide this weekend even after the Eagles impressive display against the Hawks!

Both teams are pretty formidable at home, and that's the main reason for tipping the Crows tonight. Adelaide have won ten out of eleven at the Adelaide Oval this season, and West Coast have been pretty piss-poor when travelling interstate.

The Crows are the form team on the ladder, winning twelve of their past thirteen games, and scoring plenty in that period. They bolster three of the top ten goal-kickers this season in Betts, Jenkins and Walker. West Coast were dealt a cruel blow, their start ruckman Nic Naitanui looks to be out for quite a while, he'll be serverly missed in terms of clearences.

I expect Adelaide to win tonight, get on them at best odds $1.29. With the forwards on display this game is guaranteed to bring goals, it's well worth backing both teams to score 90 points at a rather generous $3.75.

Seeming as it's the final home and away round of the season I'll give you a couple of player bets to jump on. There are quite a few players on the pitch who could kick three or more tonight. However Tom Lynch at $3.5 to do so represents real value to me, the forgotten Adelaide man has landed me a few juicy bets already this year. Rory Laird is heading into finals in pretty good form, he had a pretty off week against Port but before that he'd hit over 33 disposals three games in a row. He's well worth backing to have 30+ disposals tonight at $2.4. If you were really chasing a bigger price, get on the double at $7.5.
