  • Hawthorn vs Brisbane (UT)
  • St. Kilda vs Carlton (Etihad)

  • Essendon vs Geelong (MCG)
  • Adelaide Crows vs Melbourne (Adelaide)
  • Richmond vs Fremantle (MCG)
  • Gold Coast vs Port Power (Jianguan)
  • Nth. Melbourne vs Sydney (Etihad)

The only ones I’m not sure of are the Gold Coast vs Port Power game because it’s being played at the Jianguan Stadium in China. No home advantage for this game.

Of course that’s of no use to you unless, like me you’ve joined more than one online betting site. My favourite are William Hill, Bet365 and Sportsbet! Apart from taking advantage of whoever is offering the best odds I also utilize any special deals they sometimes offer.

Other reputable online betting sites include Unibet and Luxbet my research shows them to be great sports betting sites. The other one is the West Coast vs Western Bulldogs match. No reason really, just don’t feel right about it which is why I haven’t included it in the multi-bet below.

OK, let’s check out who’s got the best odds for AFL this week

I sportsbet multi AFLreckon I’ll go with Sportsbet this week. I’ve been luckier with them and after last weeks fiasco I reckon I need a change in luck.

I could have done a 4 leg multi with Sportsbet because they’re offering up to $50 back in bonus bets if you get one of your legs wrong but I reckon I like my chances with the 3 legs better.

Sportsbet Million Dollar Tipping

Last but not least is placing making sure I enter Sportsbet’s Million Dollar Tipping competition. If you haven’t joined I urge you to do so because it’s absolutely free for members. There’s $10000 up for grabs each week $5000 the AFL and $5000 for the NRL.

I love the Sportsbet app it makes it so easy to enter my tips. My $1 stake only returns about $14 but I reckon that’s still a pretty good return for a buck outlay.

Over to you. Which teams are you picking for your AFL round 8 tips 2017?

Most importantly, remember to gamble responsibly! It’s the only way to enjoy your online sports betting.

If you’re going to talk about a crappy round of AFL tipping then the AFL round 7 2017 results would definitely fit the bill. I haven’t even heard from Fortuna yet on what would have to be her poorest result of tipping ever. I’m sure when she does show up she’ll blame it all on Loki that mischievous Norse god. I’m sure she’d love to get a hold of Thor’s hammer so she could give Loki a taste of of the headache that a lot of punters are feeling because of the AFL round 7 2017 results.

AFL Round 7 2017 Results

As you can see in the image about round 7 definitely was a very poor result as far as tipping goes. Only three tips turned out to be winners but most punters, and AFL tipsters, would agree that round 7 were full of upsets.

AFL Round 7 2017 Major Upsets

If there had to be one major upset of the 2017 AFL season so far it would have to be the North Melbourne vs Adelaide Crows game. The Roar have Crows Nth Melbourne upseteven called it the Upset Of The Year Contender! If it wasn’t bad enough that they lost a game that everyone thought they would win, they absolutely got thumped by the Roos. If you missed that awful game, I say that as an avid Crows fan, you can see a quarter by quarter score in the image over there on the right.

Why The Crows Lost To North Melbourne

So, why did the Crows lose to the Roos? I have put together the top three theories why the Roos thumped the Crows so convincingly.

  1. Bad umpiring: While the the frees were in Nth. Melbourne’s favour at 23 to 16, I personally don’t believe that to be a valid reason for the Crows poor performance.
  2. Crows ugly Guernsey: There are some that say that the boys were so embarrassed about showing up in their alternate Guernsey. Yeah, sure it was kind of ugly, although it did make them stand out, but again, I don’t think that was the excuse.
  3. Crows Unpreparedness: That the Crows came into the game expecting to win and just didn’t know what to do when the Roos came out with all guns blazing.

Truth be told it wasn’t any of those, it wasn’t even losing the coin toss and the fact the Roos had a strong win blowing all their shots through the goals. Nope, the reason the Crows lost was because, on the day, they were outplayed by a better team. Lets hope they do better next week.

Upset #2 St. Kilda vs Giants

The St.Kilda vs GWS Giants game was another match that surprise a lot of AFL fans. As far as I’m concerned it was definitely an upset. What was most upsetting was that I had them as the first part of the leg in my Bet365 multi! Overall though their loss wouldn’t have made any difference because the rest of the multi were all losers as well. That’s the first time that has ever happened since I’ve started my sports betting.

Oh well, I’m still way in front and there’s always next week!
