The second week of the AFL finals is over and it’s now time to check out the AFL Finals Week 2 Results
AFL Finals Week 2 Results Not Finals Footy
As you can see from the image on the left Fortuna got the Geelong vs Sydney results wrong. Tell you the truth, I really expected Sydney to win that game and I’m sure a lot of punters did as well. Still, there are a whole lot of happy punters out there who are rubbing their hands with glee. Especially those you used Bet365 to place their bet as they were offering the best odds for that particular game.
Cats Upset Swans In Semi Finals
Geelong 15.8 98 ~ Sydney Swans 5.9 39
As for the game itself its not really what I call finals footy. I don’t know about you but I expect final footy to be a hard fought game with the lead seesawing between the two teams. Sort of like the West Coast vs Port Power game back in week one of the finals. That is what finals footy is all about. Not the lack luster performance the Swans put up. Sam Newman was right when he said on the Footy Show that Buddy goes missing when the pressure is on.
According to Fox Footy the best tactic of the whole game was putting Dangerfield in the goal square. I have to admit, I was saying the same thing when the game started, although I didn’t think it would work out as well as it did.
I was actually hoping that Geelong would win that game because I felt that Geelong would be easier to beat this week than the Swans. After seeing the Swans dismal effort I’m not so sure any more. Still, the Crows have had a week off and maybe the Cats mighty effort has tuckered them out somewhat.
GWS Giants Thumping Win Against West Coast Eagles
GWS Giants 19.11 125 ~ West Coast Eagles 9.4 58
Again not what I call finals footy. I don’t know about you but I got pretty bored with both games and actually watched something else once the third quarter was almost over. The ABC probably had the best write up on that game.
Grand Final Prediction
I personally think it’s going to be a Crows vs Richmond grand final with the Crows finishing on top. The Herald Sun has listed a whole lot of experts with their predictions for the Grand Finals results. What do you guys think?
I may put an extra bet when doing the Semi-Finals tips in the next post.
