AFL Round 10 My Preview
The 2019 AFL season has been an interesting one; there are 4 teams that are currently sitting on 6 wins and 3 losses and 5 teams that have 4 wins and 5 losses. If Round 9 is anything to go by then Round 10 should be an unpredictable one at least according to my predictions! Contrary to my predictions 8 out of 9 home teams won and there were only 4 games with a margin separating the 2 teams of under 3 goals, hopefully there are less one sided games in Round 10.
My choice of a definite winner for this Round: Demons
Friday Night Game
Swans v Magpies
This could be an intriguing contest if the Swans play to the level that they are capable of, as they have some good players in their team.
Key matchup: Lance Franklin v Jordan Roughead
Swans Game Changer: Luke Parker
Magpies Game Changer: Josh Thomas
My Prediction: Swans
Saturday Afternoon Games
Hawks v Power
These teams are separated by just 1 win, which indicates that this could be an exciting game.
Key matchup: Jaeger O’Meara v Tom Rockliff
Hawks Game Changer: Ricky Henderson
Power Game Changer: Travis Boak
My Prediction: Power
Bulldogs v Kangaroos
The Bulldogs need to win this to stay in touch with the top 8; considering the Kangaroos lowly position they would want to win this game.
Key matchup: Josh Dunkley v Ben Cunnington
Bulldogs Game Changer: Josh Dunkley
Kangaroos Game Changer: Todd Goldstein
My Prediction: Bulldogs
Crows v Eagles
This could well be the game of the Round; it’s 7th against 6th on the ladder.
Key matchup: Rory Sloane v Luke Shuey
Crows Game Changer: Brad Crouch
Eagles Game Changer: Andrew Gaff
My Prediction: Crows
Saturday Night Games
Suns v Cats
This is a game that the Cats should win.
Key matchup: Jack Bowes v Joel Selwood
Suns Game Changer: Jarrod Witts
Cats Game Changer: Mitch Duncan
My Prediction: Suns
Tigers v Bombers
This is a tough game to tip a winner in, despite 2 wins separating these teams, because both teams should perform strongly in a game that is extremely popular.
Key matchup: Dion Prestia v Zach Merrett
Tigers Game Changer: Brandon Ellis
Bombers Game Changer: Zach Merrett
My Prediction: Bombers
Sunday Afternoon Games
Demons v Giants
If the Demons perform the way that they did in Round 9 then this should be an entertaining contest.
Key matchup: Clayton Oliver v Josh Kelly
Demons Game Changer: Angus Brayshaw

Saints v Blues
This game is all about the Blues, as they have dominated the headlines for the wrong reason due to their poor performance in Round 9.
Key matchup: Sebastian Ross v Patrick Cripps
Saints Game Changer: Tim Membrey
Blues Game Changer: Nic Newman
My Prediction: Saints
Dockers v Lions
This is 9th against 4th; this game is a test of whether the Lions are genuine contenders in 2019.

My Prediction: Lions
