Since the AFL Round 5 2018 Results won’t be complete until the Anzac Day match between Collingwood and Essendon I’ve decided to start the post today, Monday 23rd April. So far, I am not at all impressed with my AFL Round 5 2018 Results.
AFL Round 5 2018 Results Step Backwards
AFL Round 5 2018 Score Results
SYDNEY 3.3 6.6 8.9 10.15 (75)
ADELAIDE CROWS 4.9 8.10 9.12 12.13 (85)
You all know I’m a Crows fan right? So when I backed Sydney, it was because I honestly thought the Crows didn’t have a chance in hell of winning this game. Shit, if you checked my multi last week, you’ll see they were even the first leg of my multi! Heck, if I had even a hint that they could win that game, I would have backed them with Ladbrokes at $2.95.
None were more horrified of the results than the Swans and their fans, as you can see by this article. The first upset of the AFL Round 5 2018 Results.
ST KILDA 2.2 5.8 6.12 10.13 (73)
GWS GIANTS 2.5 4.9 7.15 9.19 (73)
I predicted the Giants to win this game. It turned out to be a draw. As you can see from the score, the Giants would have won if they’d only licked straight. :tongue_out:
CARLTON 2.1 4.5 6.6 10.9 (69)
WEST COAST 3.5 5.11 9.16 10.19 (79
West Coast was the better team leading in all four quarters. I did find one interesting article relating to this match. This article was all about the Victorian Commentator’s Victorian Bias. What is most surprising to me is that it’s taken folk so long to discover/publish, that a Victorian bias exists. :doh:
PORT ADELAIDE 1.2 4.4 7.5 7.8 (50)
GEELONG 3.2 5.7 8.10 12.12 (84)
I can’t believe I got this one wrong. Port Power should have had this one in the bag! According to LAFM Geelong had recorded the second upset of the Anzac round. I’m assuming the first round was the Crows game. At least one Adelaide side managed a win in the AFL Round 5 2018 Results. 😀
FREMANTLE 4.0 6.3 12.6 16.12 (108)
WESTERN BULLDOGS 1.2 3.3 4.4 8.6 (54)
Fremantle dominated this game. The Bulldogs just never had a go. I couldn’t have got this tip more wrong. Maybe if Freo just beat them, certainly not when they doubled their score. Even the Roar predicted Fremantle to win. By 25 points too! Oh well, at least I’m not the only one to get it wrong.
NORTH MELBOURNE 7.5 11.9 12.11 14.14 (98)
HAWTHORN 2.0 3.0 9.2 11.4 (70)
I got this game wrong as well. That’s the trouble with AFL tipping; there are too many bloody variables that can change the result. Home advantage for example that sometimes turns out not to be an advantage at all. The weather can also play a part, but in this case, according to Fox Sports, it was because the Roos played Jack Ziebell as a forward.
BRISBANE 2.3 4.7 7.9 10.11 (71)
GOLD COAST 4.2 7.3 10.6 11.10 (76)
Another bummer tip! :pull_hair: At least it was a close game, one that could have gone either way.
MELBOURNE 1.5 2.6 5.8 8.8 (56)
RICHMOND 2.2 5.8 8.9 15.12 (102)
Finally, I have another one right. Not only did Richmond win, but they also won convincingly! It seems like they’re invincible when at the MCG.
COLLINGWOOD 4.4 6.9 8.14 14.17 (101)
ESSENDON 3.3 4.4 4.9 7.10 (52
At least I finished off with another win. All in all, I managed to get four right, five if you count the draw. I’m not at all upset because at least two of those can be considered major upsets.
Time to look forward to round 6!
