Sydney v North Melbourne R18 preview

The Sydney Swans will be looking to snap a two-game losing streak when they host an improving North Melbourne side this Saturday in round 18 of the 2024 AFL season.

After winning 10 games on the bounce, John Longmire’s men have come back to the pack somewhat with tight losses against Fremantle and St Kilda.

Nevertheless, they remain eight points clear atop the AFL ladder, and online bookmakers have them pegged as $1.07 favourites to beat the Kangaroos at the SCG.

The Swans will have to make do without Brownlow Medal contender Isaac Heeney after failing with their appeal to throw out his one-match ban for striking St Kilda’s Jimmy Webster.

In better news for Sydney, Luke Parker’s six-week suspension is up and Callum Mills is available to play his first game of the season.

For North Melbourne, the vibe around the club has greatly improved after two wins and a couple of close misses in their past five outings.

Their four-point victory over the Gold Coast Suns in round 17 has lifted them off the bottom of the table, yet the best AFL betting sites have the Kangaroos as rank outsiders at $10 to beat the Swans.

North could have some key inclusions for the trip to Sydney, as George Wardlaw is back from a concussion spell and Zac Fisher will face a fitness test on a foot issue.

Swans v Kangaroos AFL predictions

If this match was played six weeks ago, nobody would bat an eyelid at the handicap. However, this is a much-improved North Melbourne side compared to what we saw earlier in the year. While Sydney will be desperate to make a statement after two avoidable losses, the Kangaroos can keep this within 50 points at $1.91 with Bet365.

The ruck battle between Sydney’s Brodie Grundy and North Melbourne’s Tristan Xerri should be a belter. Xerri has booted four goals in his past four outings, and as Grundy’s defensive acumen has been questioned at times, the emerging Roo offers good value at $3.05 with Neds to slot one at some stage.

With Heeney out, the Sydney midfield will have a different look about it. Chad Warner is enjoying a stellar season and could be the man to take the reins, so get on him for 25 or more disposals at $2.15 with Unibet.
