6. CLOSE, CLOSE, CLOSE

Just like the Gillette 3000, this round promises to bring some very close shaves in some key games.

Friday night has the two top teams head to head in what looks like inspired AFL scheduling (but is perhaps more dumb luck), and North just getting the nod. No HGA advantage has been applied in this game, and you could make an argument that it should be applied to the Dogs...

Can the Demons get three in a row? The numbers give them a narrow win over the Saints, who themselves are no slouches.

Again, the HGA is boosting Richmond. But where is Port Adelaide this year. The first 15 minutes will tell in this one.

And the second tip for Essendon, with another narrow win predicted over Carlton. In tipping the Dons, the FMI system is 1 and 0.

Think before tipping, and as always - no wagering!

  1. You've listed Melbourne playing at the MCG BUT they're playing a 'home game' vs St Kilda at Docklands. A venue they had lost about 22 times in-a-row vs all-comers until the last round of last season. Would the FMI system give St Kilda a HGA given Etihad actually is theirs and not their opponents??
