So here we are, week 1 of the finals, and to preface this weeks tips, and probably all for the finals...
#afl #finals #prediction. Every club that finished higher on the ladder will defeat every club that finished lower.... You work it out!And our predictor plays out a similar result.

All the higher placed teams are tipped to win over the lower teams.
Form indications (our calculations) suggest if there is to be an upset, it will be Richmond (+26) to defeat Port Adelaide (-7).
* Where a positive number implies good recent form, and a negative poor form.
Equally, the North Melbourne (-16) vs Essendon (+5) match also looks interesting... either a line-ball contest, with the potential for Essendon to win.
The other match-ups run as
Hawthorn (-3) vs Geelong (+6)
Not enough of a difference to alter our predictions to any great extent.
Sydney (+2) vs Fremantle (-8)
Reinforcing a Swans win, if anything.
