AFL Round 13: Adelaide v Richmond Preview & Betting Tips
Can the Tigers bounce back after back-to-back losses or will the Crows go into the bye full of momentum?
Adelaide v Richmond - Adelaide Oval - 7:50pm
Locked together on seven wins and five losses in 2019, Adelaide and Richmond will go searching for a crucial victory when they face off at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday night.
The last two weeks have yielded opposite results for these clubs, with the Crows earning two victories with wins over the Demons in Darwin before putting forth an inspired display to down the Giants last weekend, whereas the Tigers fell to the Kangaroos and Cats by a combined margin of 104 points.
Those results indicate Richmond’s numerous injury troubles may have finally started taking a toll, however, there could be some respite on that front with Nick Vlastuin and Brandon Ellis potentially set to return.
On top of their poor last fortnight, the Tigers will be looking to overcome a winless streak on the road against the Crows, which stretches back to 2014 and features three losses by a margin of 36+ points.
Key Stat: Adelaide has won each of its last three night matches by a margin of 1-39 points.
Best bet: Adelaide 1-39
Value bet: Adelaide 40+
