Sunday AFL for Round 11 of the 2020 AFL Season and we have the West Coast Eagles hosting the Carlton Blues at Optus Stadium to kick things off. We then head to the Adelaide Oval where the Melbourne Demons will tackle the North Melbourne Kangaroos without a couple of their stars.
A couple of awesome Saturday AFL Matches in which the Power beat the Tigers by 21 points in a thrilling encounter and the Lions were too good for the Bulldogs to win by 4 Goals.
Check out some of the highlights below.

Current Head to Head Odds
West Coast – $1.25
Carlton – $3.85
Wet stormy conditions are expected for this clash so there may be some late squad changes for both sides with some bigs likely to get the chop.
The team that goes in first and gets the football will have the best chance of winning this clash. The Eagles have some goalsneaks up forward who can turn it on in wet conditions, and they should get it done.
This game may be close and expect a low scoring scrappy affair at Optus Stadium.
Carlton was excellent in their last wet weather contest against the Bulldogs in Round 6 and may hang around for the majority of the battle.
Our Pick – West Coast (Win)
Player Prop – Shannon Hurn + 61.5 Fantasy Points
Hurn struggled to get into the game against Geelong in Round 9 and gets the job of kicking out from a behind on most occasions. Could rack up some cheap touches if the Eagles are on the back foot in the early stages and Carlton kick some behinds.
Jamie Cripps + 48.5 Fantasy Points
The Wet Conditions will suit the small forward, and Cripps has some pace and knows how to lay a tackle. Has an average of 87.5 Fantasy Points in his last 2 matches against the Blues.
Melbourne Demons vs North Melbourne Kangaroos
Round 23 2019, North Melbourne 13.10 88 – Melbourne 12.11 83
(North Melbourne by 5 Points)
Last 5 Meetings
North Melbourne – 4 Wins
Melbourne – 1 Win
The Demons were impressive on Wednesday Night against the Crows on the back of a stellar performance from Clayton Oliver. They won the match comfortably by 51 Points and may start getting confident.
North Melbourne was outclassed by the Cats and lost by 33 points, although they did show some patches of good football.
The Demons have made some significant changes to their lineups for this contest with Max Gawn and Jack Viney both out. Harley Bennell, Jay Lockhart and Alex Neal Bullen are also out for the Demons side. Mitch Hannan, Tom McDonald, Jysaiah Pickett, Trent Rivers and Charlie Spargo come into the team.
For the Kangaroos, Ben Brown is out injured, and Lachlan Hosie and Will Walker have been dropped. Luke Davies Uniake, Sam Durdin and Nick Larkey come back into the team.
Current Head to Head Odds
Melbourne – $1.77
North Melbourne – $2.05
Boom or Bust for this prediction as the Demons will be without Max Gawn and Jack Viney for this clash. If the Kangaroos can stop Petracca and Oliver, the talent level at the Demons starts to wear a little thin and the Roos will back themselves in to win this contest. They have an advantage in the Ruck with Todd Goldstein which could provide a lot of chances for the first use of the football.
Both sides are on a shortened break for this clash, but the Demons outs are significant. The Kangaroos are a decent shot at winning this clash.
Our Pick – North Melbourne (Win)
Player Prop – Nathan Jones + 60.5 Fantasy Points
Jones has averaged 97.5 Fantasy Points against the Roos in his last two games and may step into the middle with the absence of Jack Viney. Only averaging 56 for the season, but playing more of a defensive role on the back half. If he goes into the middle, he should cover this number.
