2017 AFL Grand Final Prediction

The question of everyone’s lips is who will win the 2017 AFL Grand Final? I’m hoping that it will be a hard fought battle right up until the final siren. That’s what finals footy is all about right? No-one wants to see a one sided game. The best footy is when the win is up in the air right up until the dying seconds of the game. So, what’s the media saying about 2017 AFL Grand Final predictions?

Media Opinion On 2017 AFL Grand Final Prediction

Malcolm Blight tips Adelaide in his article in The Age. According to Blight it will be a hard fought battle that the Crows will just win. OK, he doesn’t actually say that in so many words but he did say ‘just’ win. I just embellished it a little.

The Adelaide Football Club isn’t giving anything away either offering some interesting stats as well as documenting strengths and weaknesses of both teams.

What is really interesting is how the Crows fared in the last five games against Richmond. Stats courtesy of the AFC, previous link.

R6, 2017, Adelaide 21.14 (140) d Richmond 10.4 (64) at Adelaide Oval
R3, 2016, Adelaide 19.14 (128) d Richmond 13.14 (92) at Etihad Stadium
R19, 2015, Adelaide 11.22 (88) d Richmond 8.4 (52) at Adelaide Oval
R21, 2014, Richmond 10.19 (79) d Adelaide 9.15 (69) at Adelaide Oval
R12, 2013, Richmond 16.14 (110) d Adelaide 10.12 (72) at the MCG

It’s interesting to note that the Crows have managed to win the last 3 confrontations, one of which was an away game at Etihad Stadium.

Rippa says it will be a hard fought game but that Richmond will be victorious tipping a 23 point win

My 2017 AFL Grand Final Prediction

Grand Final 2017 Cup

 

Personally I’m hoping for a Crows 2017 Grand Final win but I think, even though most sites are saying the Crows are favourites, I believe the Crows to be the underdogs. Almost everybody I’ve spoken to who aren’t Crows fans are willing the Crows to lose, and I don’t mean just the Power supporters. Then having to play at the MCG where the Tiger army will assuredly out roar the 19th man fan base. Add to that all the other non Crows supporters screaming out their lungs, how are the Crows expected to even hear their 19th man.

Still, I believe the Crows will to win will overcome everything and they enabling them to bring the Grand Final Cup home.

As far as tipping goes, I have no other choice but to tip the Crows to win. Because Bet365 has the better odds I’m using them to place my bet. You can see my wager here.

So, who do you think is going to win the 2017 AFL Grand Final?


I’m both happy and sad to present to you the AFL 2017 Preliminary Finals results. Happy that the Crows, as I wrote in my last post, Preliminary Finals Crows Clobber Cats, had a resounding win against the Cats. Sad because there is only one week of AFL left, but what a great week that is going to be because the Crows are in the finals! So, how did we go with our tipping last week? Let’s have a look at the AFL 2017 Preliminary Finals Results shall we?

I know I am a Crows fan and so people are going to say my opinions on the game is a little biased, but that was a fantastic game. Sure it wasn’t as exiting as the Port Power vs West Coast game in the first week of the finals, I think I called it a cracker of a game, but it was exciting football all the same. Even the Crows lead in every quarter one can’t deny the Cats commitment to the game. They threw everything they had at the Crows but they just were not able to overcome the Crows thirst for a win.

For me the best part of that game was the Sloane / Dangerfield Clash which one site called The Clash Of The Titans.

While I admit it was poor form for the Crows to boo Dangerfield as he was taken off the field you have to allow for all that adrenaline pumping through their veins in the moment.

Richmond vs GWS Giants Results

I said right at the beginning that it was going to be a Richmond vs Crows grand final. I even went so far as to put my money on it as you can see from this post. Well, I was right and that turned into another winning bet.

RICHMOND                                 4.3    5.7    11.11    15.13 (103)
GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY     3.3    5.6    6.10       9.13 (67)

As you can see it was pretty close up to half time but it was downhill for GWS from then on. It was as if they had nothing left after the break and couldn’t do a thing to stop the Tigers from flattening them.

Stay tuned for Finals Tipping Post, but until then maybe you should check out my Women’s Sport Sexy Moments post.
