    AFL Tipping Competitions

    Figured I'd start a thread for this that anyone can post any competitions they've stumbled across with prizes. I generally bomb out after a few rounds but always sign up to like a dozen each year.

    So far I've found the following with prizes...

    https://tipping.afl.com.au/tipping/index.html#/tipping
    https://supercoach.heraldsun.com.au/afl/tipping/team
    https://www.sportsbet.com.au/tipping/
    https://www.thegame.com.au/ (WA Only for prizes I believe).

    Sorry if any of the links are bad, they're my bookmarks to the tipping pages!

    Feel free to add any more and I'll try and update this thread.

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    I'm not at my home computer so don't have all the links, but nearly every AFL club has started their own comp (mostly in the last 2-3 days lol, leaving it late!) and some have some good prizes.

    Most seem AUS wide, I think GWS is a trip for 2 to the AFLGF but it's NSW/ACT eligible only for those who are there.


    Four really close betting matches this round, I'm going: Crows / Suns / Hawks / Cats

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    Have gone Tigers, Crows, Giants, Suns, Port, Hawks and Melbourne in the games that I think are close enough to pick the other sides.

    Saints and Swans I think have to be picked (though I hate tipping Sydney!).

    Tigers I'd say are a 60/40 game. Crows are probably 55/45 for mine. Giants are 60/40. Port are probably 70/30 but they're taking a lot of underdone guys into the game and without Gray, if they weren't at home I'd tip Freo there. Melbourne and Cats is a genuine 50/50 right now. Hawks and Pies is also for mine. I think the Pies have more talent but the Hawks have significantly better coaching so went with them. Suns and Melbourne is the old race to the bottom but I'll go with the new coach and more desperate side in the Suns.

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    Rich, Port, STK all should be winning and winning well.
    Giants & Swans similar but now by as much.
    Adelaide vs Essendon is interesting, I am kind of surprised its so close in the betting (evens currently) I do feel it moves Crows way game day, they're easily the better team even taking HFA into account.
    agree with Wogi that Pies more talented but Clarkson with weeks to prepare against Bucks swings it their way.
    numbers for me suggest North should be small favourites, not that confident of a tip though.
    Dees and Cats is an absolute cracker, my model not as heavy on Dees yet but head thinks they can match them. Still unsure who I will tip..

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    How'd everyone go this week? Tipped 8 with a margin of 1 which is a good start in like 10 tipping comps

    Round 2 is arguably just as tough, no-one is above $3 with TAB from the 9 matches

    I feel I have locked in Saints, Blues, Giants, Dees, Swans and Cats though personally.

    Tough decisions for myself are:
    Crows/Tigers - I had Tigers from initial gut, but think I will play it "safe" with Adelaide at home. Really hope Gibson is back - he should be important to them this year.
    Freo/Ess - Freo are home which is making this tougher for me. If they dropped one of their three talls, that would push me further towards them. Not sure if odds are reactionary of Round 1 with Freo looking terrible, Dons with a good win.
    Dogs/WCE - Would've been an easy tip - but Dogs were so bad... Eagles were better than I expected but I think that was the home factor. I have Dogs for now, would like to see some more senior players in the team possibly... NicNat could monster Roughy/English.

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    Got 7, if I'd remembered I'd have changed the Crows tip when Lynch was out (I tipped before looking at teams thoroughly and didn't notice he was out). Melbourne my other error.

    This week is interesting... I just did it and only really had to think about the Crows/Tigers, Freo/Essendon, Dogs/Eagles and Swans/Power games.

    Gone home field on Crows, Dogs and Swans basically. Not going to try for the upset for Freo but that's got classic bounce back/let down combination written all over it with new stadium.

    Will wait for teams before locking in Crows and Bombers though.

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    7, missed Ess and North, seemed to be a pretty predictable round with most games landing within 4 goals of the line.
    Tougher this week, if Pies get some back ill be confident on them keeping it close, Giants away are still pretty poor.
    Keen to see how teams backing up from Perth do this year given the hard surface.
    Will be tipping all faves I think, But wouldn't be surprised if Port, Richmond, Pies all won

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    Got 9. Had been feeling a bad way about the Crows game for a while, got lucky with Geelong.

    I wish I'd joined more comps now

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    Doing ok in tipping so far, 7 this week for a total of 19, margin 65 (bad start in margin which can hopefully be rectified )

    Dirty that Geelong lost with all their injuries, was the toughest match of Round 3 for me too.

    Only matches I am thinking about so far:
    North/Blues - Mighty tempted to tip us (went with Pies thankfully last round though.)
    Hawks/Dees - Have Hawks for now with not much confidence.

    Betting odds are relatively close for Ess/Port but can't see myself not tipping Port Adelaide there...

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    Got 7, thought I changed my tip in Monash tipping to WCE after teams but didn't save it.
    Only game I had no lean on at all.
    Rest all went to plan besides Dogs but doubt many had that.

    Not updated my model but next week seems fairly boring and steight forward tipping wise, fully expect Port to shorten, should be 10+ point favourites.
    Hawks/Dees close too but will be tipping Dees I think, better team.

    North/Carlton could go either way I guess too, hard to tip Carlton though with how bad they are playing though.

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    This thread lasted long last year 😂
    @Athomas usually enters some good comps, any sites doing anything good with semi decent prices this year?
    Probably about 5 tricky ones this week I won't know who before teams are out.

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions



    I did alright in tipping last year too, just not well enough!! Think I was top 10 on a few AFL club sites.

    Here's all the ones I am playing (a few of the club ones still have "pre-register" up, so not 100% if the prize will be good or if they will run a comp. A lot opened on Wednesday/Thursday before Round 1, so still a chance they will still open.)

    GWS have a great prize but it's NSW/ACT entrants only. I think all the ones I have linked are Australia wide (they are at least victoria wide )
    There's a couple that are a part of FootyTips site, one is MCC members only, the other is one of the radio stations, I forget.

    If you find any others I haven't entered, please let me know


    Freo v North the main tough one for me so far... I switched after Hogan news came out.

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    I'm now in Sydney so I can join the gws one which I already had. Just need an app for all these now to sync all the tips!

    Only other I found was thegame.com.au

    Yeah Freo/North looks very hard with all the outs

    Re: AFL Tipping Competitions

    FYI on thegame: Prize winners must reside in Western Australia and be over 18. See terms and conditions for full details.


    Yeah that would be handy... I normally "open all" and then click pick favourites and change any as needed. Have occasionally been caught out when more than 50% of the site tips their own team who are massive underdogs and I forget to pick up on it
