Read up and get on our AFL Semi finals Tips below for our best bets and predictions for all of the AFL action this week.

Semi Final #1 – Geelong Cats vs Sydney Swans

When: September 15, 2017
Where: Melbourne Cricket Ground
Odds: Cats $3.25, Swans $1.38
The Cats host the Swans on Friday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. We’ll provide an overview of the clash below.


Geelong head into the semi finals as massive underdogs as they were completely out-played by the rampaging Tigers. They struggled to move the ball and only kicked 5 goals for the entire match. They’ll need to improve against the Swans.

The Swans travel to the MCG after they dominated the Bombers at the SCG. They’re in impressive form at the moment and they deserver favouritism, even if this match is in Melbourne. They haven’t lost since Round 19 and they’ve won two in a row by an average of 73 points.

Venue Record:

The Cats lost by 51 points at the MCG last week and they have a 3-3 record here this season. The Swans are 2-2 at the MCG in 2017 and they lost by a goal against the Hawks in Round 19. But they thrashed the Cats in the last matchup at the MCG.

Team News:

Sydney are unchanged and Jarrad McVeigh plays his 300th AFL match this week. As expected, the Cats have brought back Menzel for Guthrie. The other change is Lang for Murdoch in the forward line.


As mentioned, the Swans won by 37 points in the Prelims last season. They followed that win with a 46 point thrashing against the Cats in Geelong this season. Since 2014, the Swans have won five of six against the Cats.


Swans WIN WIN ($1.38)
The Cats really need to beat the Swans in the midfield, otherwise this could be another thrashing. But in the current Swans form, we just can’t see the Cats getting near them. They’re better in every aspect around the ground and they have more scoring options up forward. Back the Swans here.

Semi Final #2 – GWS Giants vs West Coast Eagles

When: September 16, 2017
Where: Sydney Showground
Odds: Giants $1.44, Eagles $2.95
The Giants host the Eagles on Saturday at the Sydney Showground. We’ll provide an overview of the clash below.


The Giants were outclassed by the Crows in the Qualifying final as they lost by 36 points. They have looked well below par in the last two weeks and they’ll need to find some form at home this week. They will take form into this match against the Eagles as they’ve defeated them on two occasions in 2017.

West Coast were amazing against the Power as they jumped to an early lead. They ended up winning in extra time and the storyline for this match is their retiring champions. But we can’t forget the awesome work down back by the Eagles and they’ll need to continue against the Giants speedy midfield.

Venue Record:

The two sides have played against each other three times at Spotless Stadium and the Eagles lead 2-1. However, the Giants won by 21 points in Round 22 at the venue.

Team News:

The Giants welcome back Stevie J and Taranto. But Cameron and Mumford are big outs. For the Eagles, Wellingham returns for Partington.


West Coast lead the head to head 5-2 since the Giants entered the AFL, but the Giants have won the last two.


Giants WIN WIN ($1.44)
This should be the closest final of the week as the two sides matchup well together. We picked the Eagles last week against the Power but the fact is they only just scrapped over the line. The Giants have proven they can beat the Eagles this season and we would expect the same in this contest.
Ladbrokes Promo Market – Best Bet: Josh Kelly to have 30 or more disposals and GWS win the match ($3.50)
Crownbet AFL Points Pile-Up:
Place a Head to Head bet (minimum $20) on this match and if your team win, you’ll get $1 in Bonus Bets for every point they win by.
