The bye rounds are upon us so with only six games to have a go at punters have not been shy.

Please see below the CrownBet prices for each match and some commentary around the betting.

Head to Head Line
Port Adelaide $1.50 (out from $1.45) 1.92 (-13.5) (in from -14.5)
Geelong Cats $2.65 (in from $2.70) 1.92 (+13.5)

Port Adelaide play host to Geelong at Adelaide Oval in a game that has punters intrigued. There has been good money for both sides. Port Adelaide are solid at $1.50 and the Cats have admirers at anything better than $2.65. There has been a slight push for the Cats at the line which has been -14.5 into -13.5.

Head to Head Line
Gold Coast SUNS $8.50 (out from $8.00) 1.92 (+44.5)
Fremantle $1.07 (in from $1.30) 1.92 (-44.5) (in from -48.5)

Gold Coast are unfortunate to meet Fremantle who are coming off their first loss of the season. Punters have anchored the Dockers through multis – they have been $1.30 into $1.07. The smart punters have had a close eye on the weather here and the game total has been a big mover from 168 down to its current total of 158.

Head to Head Line
West Coast Eagles $1.17 (in from $1.30) 1.92 (-36.5) (out from -21.5)
Essendon $5.25 (out from $3.50) 1.92 (+36.5)

West Coast are home to Essendon and the betting has been one way here. The Eagles have been $1.30 into $1.17 and the line has moved from -21.5 to -36.5 and it doesn’t look like stopping. Essendon are out from $3.50 to $5.25.

Head to Head Line
North Melbourne $2.65 (in from $2.75) 1.92 (+13.5)
Sydney Swans $1.50 (out from $1.44) 1.92 (-13.5) (in from -15.5)

North Melbourne has much to play for when they meet Sydney at Etihad on Saturday evening. Betting has been solid here with North currently at $2.65 and the Swans $1.50.

Head to Head Line
Collingwood $1.58 (in from $1.65) 1.92 (-9.5) (out from -7.5)
GWS GIANTS $2.40 (out from $2.35) 1.92 (+9.5)

Collingwood are up against an improving GWS at the ‘G. The Pies have surprised most this season and have been met with good support here firming from $1.65 into $1.58. GWS will be playing in front of their biggest crowd this week and it will be interesting to see how this impressive young outfit handles the experience. GWS are $2.40.

Head to Head Line
St Kilda $1.77 (in from $1.85) 1.92 (-3.5) (out from -1.5)
Melbourne $2.10 (out from $1.95) 1.92 (+3.5)

The final game of the round sees an improving St Kilda pitted against Melbourne. Early markets had the Saints the slightest of favourites at $1.85 with the Dees $1.95, but punters have looked at Melbourne’s poor recent record here (lost 20 in a row at Etihad and the last 10 to the Saints), and rallied for the Saints who are now $1.77 with Melbourne $2.10.
