AFL Tips – Carlton v Adelaide – Round 8 2022

Carlton can make it back to back big wins over lowly opponents

Best Bet

Carlton -21.5 ($1.90)

The Crows have been plucky in 2022 but there have been some worrying signs of late.

Adelaide have been extremely poor in tackling and overall pressure around the ground. Against a side like Carlton that is capable of putting up big scores, this is a real worry. They were smashed in clearances and contested footy last week against the Giants, which are Carlton’s strengths.

While Adelaide can boast a win over the Dogs at Ballarat, they lost to lowly Essendon at Marvel and their other visit to Melbourne saw them smashed by the Pies at the G.

Carlton showed last week against North that they are capable of scoring heavily against bad sides and while Adelaide aren’t as bad as North, last week’s effort was in that ballpark.

The Blues have the midfield power and the forward quality to punish the Crows and win this by a big margin.

Same Game Multi

Carlton -21.5 / H.McKay 3+ Goals / C. Curnow 2+ Goals ($4.20)

Like Carlton to win this and their big key forwards Harry McKay and Charlie Curnow should cause the Crows plenty of trouble.

Value Bet

Carlton 60+ ($6.50)

Carlton would have cleared the ten goal mark against North Melbourne last week if not for some accurate kicking by the Roos, this one could easily get ugly for the Crows.
