AFL: Swans out to maintain flying start

Sydney Swans will be out to continue their strong start to the AFL season when they entertain the Gold Coast Suns on Sunday afternoon.

The Swans have got their campaign off to a great start, picking up four wins from their opening five games and can be backed at 7.00 to win the 2024 grand final.

However, Gold Coast will be no pushovers after winning three games so far this season and the Suns can be backed at 2.50 to make the top eight and play finals.

In Sunday’s other game, North Melbourne and Hawthorn are both looking for their first wins of the season.

Both the Kangaroos and Hawks sit 0-5, but the good news is one of them should be 1-6 come the end of the day.

Swans out to keep pressure on

. What: Sydney v Gold Coast
. Where: SCG, Sydney
. When: 14:00, Sunday 21st April 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Sydney 1.40, Gold Coast 3.00

Sydney have been far from convincing in their last two performances but are still sitting pretty in third.

After a shock defeat to Richmond, they suffered a scare before edging past West Coast in the Gather Round.

They should be refreshed after the bye and will be out to put the Suns to the sword at the SCG.

In this fixture last season, Sydney won by 24 points and can be backed at 5.50 to win by 13-24 points on this occasion.

Ben King has been in good form for the Swans when booting 14 goals and is priced at 9.50 to kick the first goal or 1.06 to score at anytime.

Gold Coast have yet to win on the road this season, but they do have a great record at the SCG, winning three of their last five trips there.

The last one came in 2022 when they won by 14 points and they are 9.00 to win by 13-24 in this latest clash.

Misfiring pair in must-win territory

. What: North Melbourne v Hawthorn
. Where: Marvel Stadium, Melbourne
. When: 17:00, Sunday 21st April 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: North Melbourne 3.00, Hawthorn 1.40

This clash could be labelled as must-win for both teams, but being on home soil, North Melbourne cannot afford to lose.

The Kangaroos have had a tough start when playing Geelong, Brisbane, Carlton, Fremantle and GWS in the opening five games, so this is their best chance of getting a win.

Nick Larkey, who has 10 goals this campaign, will again be key and the forward is 7.50 to kick the first goal of the game.

Harry Sheezel is also averaging 34.4 disposals a game and is priced at 3.50 to produce 35+ against the Hawks.

Hawthorn had a shocker when losing by 54 points to the Gold Coast last week and the pressure is starting to mount on head coach Sam Mitchell, who blasted his players after the loss.

He will be demanding a response from his players, who can be backed at 6.00 to win by 1-12 points.
