Tuesday Night Football, Round 15 2020
Tuesday Night Football kicks off Round 15 of the 2020 AFL Season, and we have a couple of games to get through.
It starts at the Adelaide Oval where the Hawks will host the Crows, at the Crows home ground. (Strange times for sure). The Eagles will then host the Bombers at the Gabba in Brisbane.
Round 14 was another decent round of football, and the AFL Ladder is beginning to shape up.

Current Head to Head Odds
Hawthorn – $1.45
Adelaide – $2.75
This may be the best chance the Crows have at winning a game this season, but coming up against a Hawthorn side coming off a loss is never an easy task. The Crows have been a little better in recent weeks, but it isn’t easy to see them winning a match.
The Hawks have won the last three against the Crows by an average of 34 points and have bought in some experienced campaigners for this clash. They should be too strong despite the match being played in Adelaide.
Our Pick – Hawthorn (Win)
AFL Player Prop – Tex Walker + 40.5 Fantasy Points
The Crows need a win and they need an experienced campaigner to step up, on the offensive end. The Hawks give up a lot of points to forwards this season and their best intercept Defender is out for this clash. Walker only needs to kick a couple of goals and will probably cover this number.
West Coast Eagles vs Essendon Bombers
Finals Week 1 2019, West Coast 17.14 116 – Essendon 9.7 61
(West Coast by 55 Points)
Last 5 Meetings
West Coast – 3 Wins
Essendon 2 Wins
The Eagles struggled after a short break in their clash with the Tigers and lost the match by 27 Points.
The Bombers came from behind in one of the comebacks of the season to defeat the Hawks by 16 Points, after trailing by 6 Goals at Half Time.
The Eagles have made four changes for this clash with Josh Kennedy out of the team injured and Jamie Cripps getting a rest. Jarrod Brander and Nic Reid have been omitted from the side. Coming into the team is Oscar Allen, Jackson Nelson, Jack Redden and one of the best ball users in the AFL, Lewis Jetta.
The Bombers have dropped three players including, Brayden Ham, Andrew Phillips and Mason Redman. Sam Draper, Dyson Heppell and Michael Hurley all come back into the team.
Current Head to Head Odds
West Coast – $1.45
Essendon – $2.75
Both sides are on a five-day break for this clash, and the Bombers need the win to keep their finals chances alive. They were very impressive with their pressure off the ball in their win against the Hawks last week, and the question will remain on whether they can back it up.
The Eagles probably faired the worst out of all the sides in the Hub Situation and will be out to prove that they can stay competitive whilst on the road.
Dyson Heppell and Michael Hurley are big ins for this clash, and the Bombers odds are shortening for this clash. The Eagles will probably be too talented for this one and should win the game if allowed to control the footy from the back half. It may be a close match, so the Bombers points spread may be an option.
Our Pick – West Coast (Win)
AFL Player Prop – Dylan Shiel + 76.5 Fantasy Points
Shiel averages 80 Fantasy points and has an average of 89 over his last four weeks. The Bombers are a chance in this game and will need Shiel to have an impact. Should get plenty of the ball in this one.
