AFL: Carlton out to see off Tigers

Carlton will look to stay on the coattails of Sydney by putting Richmond to the sword at the MCG on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues sit in second spot on the AFL ladder, but are a massive 12 points behind the Swans, who continue to dominate.

Even so, Carlton will have set their sights on cutting the gap between now and the end of the regular season, to set themselves up nicely for finals.

Carlton can be backed at 4.50 to win the 2024 AFL grand final, while Sydney are the hot fancies at 3.00.

There is still a long way to go, and Carlton need to continue building momentum by taking four points off the Tigers.

Richmond are struggling at the wrong end of the ladder and have picked up two win all season.

However they do have a great record against one of their big rivals and will be doing their best to cause an upset at the MCG.

Tigers lick their wounds

The Tigers had a week off due to the bye and will have used the time to lick their wounds following a disappointing 48-point home defeat against Hawthorn.

The week before they had picked up just their second win of the season when beating Adelaide by eight points at the Adelaide Oval.

But they could not kick on and the defeat against the Hawks put them back to square one.

Adam Yze’s men now have a chance to bounce back against one of their oldest rivals.

It was a fixture they dominated during the golden years under coach Damien Hardwick, and have still managed to make a fist of it in recent seasons.

Carlton have won just one of the last three games, and that was back in round one this season when they edged it by five points.

If Richmond are to nick this one, they can be backed at 15.00 to win by 1-12 points.

Shai Bolton can also be backed at 13.00 to kick the first goal of the game.

Blues on a roll

Carlton are flying after winning the last four games on the bounce to move to second place on the ladder.

They were impressive when seeing off Geelong by 63 points last week, and will be confident of doing the same to Hawthorn.

Carlton can be backed at 4.75 to blow Richmond away and win by 73+ points.

Charlie Curnow continues to go from strength to strength as he booted five goals in the win over Geelong.

The gun forward now has 43 goals for the season and sits top of the Coleman Medal standings. He can be backed at 6.00 to boot the first goal against the Tigers.

Patrick Cripps also starred against Geelong with a massive 41 disposals, while Sam Walsh gathered 32.

Cripps is priced at 5.25 to gather 35+ for the second week running.
