AFL Round 15 Prediction

If our AFL Round 15 Prediction is as good as our Round 14 prediction, then we’ll be pretty happy. There are some big games in this round, and it will make for some great viewing!

AFL Round 15 Prediction

Carlton vs Collingwood
A much bigger game than eighth against ninth. Two of the biggest clubs in the country going head to head on a Friday night. And it is an absolutely vital game to win for both. Collingwood sit at eighth with eight wins, while Carlton are ninth with six wins. Nathan Buckley commented during the week that he expects his boys to spike for this week – which will place more pressure on the club (especially if they don’t spike). Carlton are coming back from a very hard loss to the Swans in appalling conditions. They will be bruised and battered. Collingwood by 12 points.

Greater Western Sydney vs Western Bulldogs
All the talk has been about GWS trying to trade for some decent, older players this week. And the Bulldogs have been linked to a Ryan Griffin trade. The Dogs lost to the Demons last week, but they should still win this game with their older and more durable players. Western Bulldogs by 12 points.

North Melbourne vs Richmond
North Melbourne’s Lindsay Thomas (one of the top goalkickers for the year) was suspended for two weeks for headbutting. Clearly wasn’t using his head at the time. It’s going to cost the Kangaroos, who have been close but not good enough for too many games this season. Richmond are up and about and should get the job done in a very close game. Expect it to be helter-skelter. Richmond by 2 points.

Brisbane Lions vs Gold Coast
Brisbane has beaten Geelong and Essendon this year, and played well on the big stage against quality opposition. Unfortunately they aren’t playing consistently, which makes tipping them a difficult proposition. Gold Coast aren’t far from the top 8, and have played some excellent football this year. As the season continues, it would surprise if Gold Coast don’t fall away again due to their younger bodies. Brisbane by 12 points.

Geelong vs Hawthorn
This is a must watch! Whatever you’re doing, wherever you are, watch this game. The Kennett Curse has continued for years, and the pundits continuously believe that the Hawks will get over the line as they are frequently the form team of the competition. Each time, Geelong seems to get up by the grace of the gods. This should be no exception. Geelong by 1 point.

Adelaide vs West Coast
Both teams are playing reasonably poorly, and the Eagles have suffered from a number of injuries recently. Scott Selwood’s injury hurts the team in particular. Kennedy has played very well, but he can’t do everything. The Eagles went close against the Bombers last Thursday night. Adelaide will have some confidence having gone up to the Gold Coast fortress and notching a win. As the game is played at AAMI, the Crows should have the edge. Adelaide by 18 points.

Melbourne vs Sydney
Melbourne notched a fortunate win against the Bulldogs last week, by playing 3 good quarters and one awful quarter. Sydney beat a gallant Carlton last week, and enjoys playing on the MCG. Sydney will win. Sydney by 42 points.

Fremantle vs St Kilda
Fremantle lost to Geelong at Skilled Stadium, but have proven all season the defensive qualities that many teams strive for. St Kilda has played reasonably well, and in previous seasons may have been good enough to beat the Dockers at Paterson’s Stadium. Not this year though. The Dockers are top 4 for a reason. Fremantle by 36 points.

Essendon vs Port Adelaide
Essendon had a good win away at Paterson’s Stadium last week against a good quality Eagles outfit. Port had the surprise of the round beating Collingwood – and proving that they are a MUCH improved AFL side. This will be a good game at Etihad Stadium. The Bombers have been more consistent and have had the ability to weather the drugs storm so far. Essendon by 18 points.
