AFL Round 17 – Fixtures, Previews & Betting

This weekend sees round 17 of the 2010 AFL Season roll around and with just five games to go till the finals bounce off; the pressure is most certainly on.

Last round saw a huge turn around on the ladder, with Geelong moved from the top spot and Collingwood taking their place, so while a match may seem one-sided, punters who go against the odds are more likely to reap the rewards at this pivotal point in the season.

St Kilda welcomes Hawthorn to the Etihad Stadium as they bounce off the weekend’s action on Friday night, and what a stunner that will be as Hawthorn are continuing to climb the ladder while the Saints dropped over round 16, losing to the Pies.

Round 17 brings about another eight great fixtures, and if you are looking for a good one to wager on with Ladbrokes.com.au Sunday afternoon’s clash between the Western Bulldogs and Fremantle will be a stunner with both sides desperate for all four points.

The final clash of the weekend will be another interesting one, especially for neutral fans as local rivals Port Adelaide take on Adelaide, with the latter riding high after beating Geelong at the AAMI last week.
