Winning AFL tips and profits from Round 1 – punters cash-in early

AFL winning tips

UNLIKE Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs, our first week of the 2018 AFL season was an enjoyable one.

Our resident tipster and AFL nut, Nathan Marotta, had a week to remember with his four match previews, nailing 11 correct margins and disposal tips across the weekend.

BettingSite.com.au reviewed the Thursday night clash between Richmond and Carlton, the Friday night game between Essendon and Adelaide, the Saturday night debacle between Hawthorn and the Magpies and finished things off with an MCG blockbuster on Sunday between Melbourne and Geelong.

If you followed us across the weekend, you would have walked away with a nice bank to take into round 2 and beyond.

Let’s take a look at how the weekend unfolded.

Richmond vs. Carlton winning tips

Much like the Blues and Tigers, we opened the season with a bang, nailing four correct tips from our six recommendations in Richmond’s 17.19 (121) to 15.5 (95) win.

Essendon vs. Adelaide winning tips

Essendon got home in a thriller on Friday night, 14.15 (95) to 12.15 (87), launching its campaign to return to finals with a win over last year’s runners up, Adelaide.

Hawthorn vs. Collingwood winning tips

All of Collingwood’s 2017 miseries seemed to follow the club into the new season on Saturday night in a bitter loss to the impressive Hawks, 15.11 (101) to 9.13 (67).

Melbourne vs. Geelong winning tips

A simple, incredible, horrible, missed set shot from 20 metres out, directly in-front from Max Gawn cost the Demons in their thrilling loss to Geelong, 13.16 (94) to 14.13 (97).

While we were on the Demons to win and were cursing Max Gawn, we did still walk away with three profitable bets.
