Winning bets for AFL Round 4 – Bombers bring home the bacon

AFL winning tips
IT was a week of upsets and blowouts as wild weather reigned in Round 4 of the 2018 AFL season.

Collingwood kicked things off on Friday night with a stunning thumping of the Crows at Adelaide Oval and things just got weirder from there.

Brisbane kicked its first goal of the match against Richmond nearing the end of the third quarter. Ouch.

The Swans out-lasted a spirited Dogs outfit in the match of the round at Etihad Stadium.

Carlton embarrassed itself again in Tasmania against North Melbourne, challenging embattled coach Brendan Bolton to find new excuses for a downward spiral that has reached new, exciting lows.

The supposed new-and-improved Melbourne played like its old-self in a despicable display against Hawthorn.

And, to cap it all off, Essendon pulled a rabbit out of the hat in an upset victory over the ladder-leading Port Adelaide.

Our resident football punter ran his eye over four of the weekend’s biggest games and provided free tips.

Let’s see how our punters fared.

Adelaide vs. Collingwood winning tips

Starting as a $5 underdog going into the game and suffering pre-match injuries to two crucial players, not many gave Collingwood a chance of upsetting the 2017 Grand Finalist, the Adelaide Crows. So, it came as shock to the football when Nathan Buckley’s men dismantled the home team in slippery conditions, 16.10 (106) to 9.4 (58).

It was a tough game for punters, but the Pies did deliver some value for us.

Bulldogs vs. Swans winning tips

The Swans held out the Dogs in a ripper on Saturday afternoon in a game that swung wildly from teams occupying opposite ends of the ladder.

In the end it was the class of the Swans that won out in the dying stages, 13.8 (86) to 11.13 (79).

Eagles vs. Suns winning bets

The Eagles did as they pleased against Gold Coast on Saturday night, celebrating the return of super star Josh Kennedy with a thumping 80-point win, 21.13 (139) to 9.5 (59).

Essendon vs. Port Adelaide winning tips

After a week of soul-searching and media scrutiny, the Bombers responded in the best way possible on Sunday, upsetting the Power in an impressive display, 16.10 (106) to 12.12 (84).

Hawthorn vs. Melbourne winning tips

The Demons were as disappointing to us as they were to their fans on Sunday afternoon, putting in a pathetic effort in a 67-point defeat to Hawthorn, 18.7 (115) to 6.12 (48).

Melbourne jumped out to a strong start, but then seemingly packed their bags and went home at quarter time. The Demons kicked one goal for the next three quarters — coming early in the final term.
