Round 10 AFL Predictions

You can find my predictions for AFL Round 10 below. I have decided to cover three standout matches in detail before sharing the remainder of my AFL predictions for Round 10.

Melbourne to Beat North Melbourne

Betway’s odds tell you everything you need to know about the gulf between Melbourne and North Melbourne right now.

The Demons are flying high atop the AFL ladder after winning all of their nine matches this year. Not only do they boast the best defensive record in the competition, but they also have the fourth-best offensive record.

At the opposite end of the standings, the Kangaroos find themselves second from bottom – 32 points behind Melbourne – after losing eight of their nine clashes in 2022.

Following last weekend’s 69-point thrashing at the hands of Port Adelaide, David Noble’s boys have conceded 100+ points in each of their previous five outings. They look set for another humiliating defeat this weekend.

Richmond to Beat Essendon

Essendon heads into Round 10 on the back of a 58-point loss to Sydney. The Bombers have lost four of their past five matches, conceding 100+ points on three occasions.

When you look at the bigger picture, Essendon has managed to record just two wins this season. Having lost seven of their nine encounters in 2022, only two sides – North Melbourne and West Coast – are below the Bombers on the ladder.

On the flip side,
Richmond comes into Round 10 on a three-match winning streak. Earlier this month, the Tigers crushed West Coast and Collingwood before beating Hawthorn last time out.

Tom Lynch (4.1), Jack Riewoldt (3.2), and Dustin Martin (3.1) starred as Richmond racked up 117 points against the Hawks in Round 9. With Dusty back in business, the Tigers shouldn’t struggle to dispatch off-from Essendon.

Brisbane to Beat Hawthorn

It is no secret that Melbourne is on course to secure back-to-back minor premierships. However, Brisbane continues to keep pace with the Demons.

The Lions sit second in the standings after picking up eight wins across the first nine rounds. Better still, they head into Round 10 on a five-match winning streak following big victories over Collingwood, Gold Coast, Sydney, West Coast, and Adelaide.

Charlie Cameron booted four goals last weekend, while Zac Bailey kicked three as Brisbane hammered Adelaide. Consequently, both players find themselves in the top ten on the 2022 Coleman Medal leaderboard.

As for the Hawks, they have lost each of their last four matches. Having also lost six of their previous seven, they are on course for another heavy defeat this weekend.

More AFL Predictions for Round 10

  • Carlton to Beat Sydney
  • Port Adelaide to Beat Geelong
  • Western Bulldogs to Beat Gold Coast
  • St Kilda to Beat Adelaide
  • GWS Giants to Beat West Coast
  • Fremantle to Beat Collingwood

Although Carlton and Sydney are separated by just four points, I can see the Blues winning on Friday. Michael Voss’ men are on a three-match winning run and will be eager to widen the gap between them and the Swans.

All of a sudden, Port Adelaide find themselves four points behind Geelong. The Cats may be favored to beat Port this weekend, but I’m backing the in-form Power to extend their winning streak to five matches.

I’m also backing Western Bulldogs to beat Gold Coast, St Kilda to dispatch Adelaide, and GWS to see off lowly West Coast. Last but not least, third-place Fremantle shouldn’t struggle to overcome eleventh-place Collingwood.

Top AFL Picks for Round 10

It’s time to go over the best AFL bets for Round 10. If you like the look of my picks, or you want to make your own selections, be sure to use only the best Aussie Rules betting sites.

Carlton vs. Sydney – Carlton to Win1.95
Geelong vs. Port Adelaide – Port Adelaide to Win3.10
North Melbourne vs. Melbourne – Melbourne (-65.5)1.90
Hawthorn vs. Brisbane – Brisbane (-30.5)2.37

Sydney is the marginal favorite to beat Carlton, but I’m backing the Blues. I’m also backing Port Adelaide to beat Geelong. The 2020 minor premiers have won each of their past four matches and can move level with Geelong if they win.

I recommend adding the -65.5 onto the Melbourne win, given the gulf between the Demons and North Melbourne. Similarly, I suggest adding the -30.5 handicap onto the Brisbane victory, as the Lions are on a five-game winning streak.
