Richmond v North Melbourne betting tips, prediction & odds update; AFL Rd 7 preview
WELCOME to our Richmond v North Melbourne betting tips for round 7 of the AFL season, with the match taking place at Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast, on Saturday night, because of the strict biosecurity measures being taken to keep the competition going.
The Tigers have been installed $1.57 favourites to defeat the struggling Roos, who have slumped to four successive losses after starting the season with a 2-0 record, with the honeymoon period for new coach Rhyce Shaw well and truly over.
Richmond on the other hand have moved to sixth on the ladder with successive victories, after their surprise belting at the hands of St Kilda. The Tigers are still struggling with unavailability with the likes of Bachar Houli, whose mother is battling COVID-19, captain Trent Cotchin (hamstring), Shane Edwards (leg) and Toby Nankervis missing through a injury.

Tigers v Kangaroos betting tips
Our AFL betting expert has scoured the odds and found several value Tigers v Roos betting tips for Saturday night’s game.
Jack Riewoldt to score 2+ goals
In what could only be described as a shocking game all-round, with only 60 points scored between Richmond and Sydney last week, Jack Riewoldt looked to be the Tigers’ most damaging forward, despite only kicking one goal for the game. While Riewoldt has been below-par in 2020 so far, he looked to be running into some handy form, or it could simply be more supply with Tom Lynch still battling the impact of a broken hand that required surgery. Reiwoldt is paying $2.37 to score two or more goals, which we think is a great option for your multi-bets.
Jack Ziebell to get over 20 touches
Jack Ziebell returns from injury for the Kangaroos and we suspect Rhyce Shaw wishes he had two of him, with him and the absent Ben Cunnington playing a critical role in giving them a hard edge through the midfield. The other option facing Shaw is to throw Ziebell forward to help struggling spearhead Ben Brown in attack. We’re tipping that Shaw will use Ziebell in the engine room in his return, and the $4.33 on offer for him to gather 20 possessions or more is just too tempting.
Richmond v North Melbourne prediction 18/7/20
While we’re not 100% convinced with Richmond’s form — they are a hard team to gauge with so many players out, one thing is for sure, they are still well and truly in premiership contention in 2020 and any wins they can bank while the likes of Shane Edwards and Bachar Houli are absent will be crucial later in the year. It also helps that the Roos are really battling, and are sorely missing heart and soul midfielder Cunnington. Our final Richmond v Kangaroos prediction? Tigers by 7 points.
