(Picks in bold)

West Coast v Richmond - Eagles a chance, but you couldn't possibly tip them at this point in time

Geelong v Fremantle - Cats forwards v Fremantle forwards tips this one in favour of Geelong

Adelaide v GWS - Have underrated Adelaide so far this season. Probably doing it again. Just get the feeling the Giants are due to put one together

Melbourne v Hawthorn - Covid dramas irrelevant, given you can't really tip against Melbourne against anyone just yet. Not playing very well, but are the Hawks a strong enough opponent to knock them off?

St Kilda v Port Adelaide - Trap game for St Kilda. Thew the game away against a terrible Crows side in the wet last time they played in Cairns. Slippery ball (with sweat, rather than rain) not so suitable to their style? Port not expected to win anything at the moment. Tempted by the upset here... Carlton v North Melbourne - perfect bounce back spot for Carlton. North as unconvincing as any side right now, but the Blues would still want to be switched on or the Roos could smell a kill on their home deck

Collingwood v Gold Coast - Pies going OK without looking like a genuine contender. Should beat the Suns, but they have pulled off a couple of MCG heists in recent years

Western Bulldogs v Essendon - Teams that defend the Dogs through the middle well tend to do OK. Not convinced the Bombers are one of those sides. Could be a world-record game for disposals

Sydney v Brisbane - Lions to win and stamp themselves as a real threat to the all-conquering Dees
