GWS v Richmond betting tips, prediction & odds; AFL Rd 8 preview 2020
WELCOME to our GWS v Richmond tips for their grand final rematch being played at Giants Stadium on Friday night.
The Tigers whipped the Giants to the tune of 91 points in last year’s decider, in one of the most one-sided grand finals in years.
This time the Tigers will go into the clash as outsiders, largely because of injuries and unavailability striking the hub-ridden team.
The Giants have been installed $1.65 favourites with the Tigers priced at $2.20 , while the $1.90 line has been set at 5.5 points. We think the GWS v Richmond odds are about right for this one.
GWS are likely to regain protagonist Toby Greene, with the fiery star overcoming a shin injury he suffered a fortnight ago against Port Adelaide. They will however have to wait for the return of Callan Ward from injury.
The injury and unavailability crisis engulfing Richmond has become worse, with David Astbury (knee) set to join Dion Prestia (ankle), Trent Cotchin (hamstring), Bachar Houli, Shane Edwards (both personal reasons) and Toby Nankervis on the sidelines.
Below we have highlighted our free GWS v Richmond tips and winner prediction for their AFL round 8 clash being played at Giants Stadium on Friday night.

GWS v Richmond betting tips
Our AFL betting expert has scoured the odds and found several value Giants v Tigers tips for Friday’s game.
Jeremy Cameron to score 3+ goals
Keep an eye on the weather forecast but we really like Jeremy Cameron to score a bag of goals for the Giants, and while 3+ goals may not seem like a bag, in modern football with shortened quarters it is. Cameron was one of the Giants’ best in their humbling loss to Brisbane, with 2.3 for the day, largely opposed to Harris Andrews. This week Cameron confronts a Richmond team that is unlikely to have first-choice key defender David Astbury, which could force an inexperienced name like Noah Balta, or the undersized Nick Vlastuin, onto him. He’s paying $3.00 with PlayUp.
Marlion Pickett to get 20+ touches
Last year’s grand final star Marlion Pickett has hardly set the world on fire in 2020, but the last fortnight the mature age recruit has begun to look better. Last week he gathered 16 possessions and with super-stopper Matt De Boer set to take Dustin Martin, we think Pickett could notch up 20+ touches this week, which is paying a juicy $5 with PlayUp Australia.
GWS Giants v Richmond Tigers prediction 24/7/2020
Looking at the two line-ups it’s hard seeing Richmond repeating their thrashing of the Giants, with the Tigers just missing too many key players from their midfield — an area we think they don’t have much depth in. While the Tigers have reeled off three victories in a row, the scalps — Melbourne, Sydney and North Melbourne — are all struggling in 2020. The Giants on the other hand have lost two games in a row, to Port Adelaide and Brisbane, but we think they began to show signs of life against the Lions. Our final GWS v Richmond prediction? GWS by 21 points.
