Adelaide vs Richmond Betting Tips, Preview & Odds

Adelaide Crows hosts Richmond Tigers at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday in a final game that holds significance for both sides for different reasons.

The Crows are looking for a win to move them off the bottom of the ladder, while the Tigers are out to secure a top four spot on the ladder.

Richmond are a team on a mission at the moment and will have a few key ins before the Finals.

Adelaide had not won a game all season, but have got themselves into gear very late to secure three wins a row to give them a glimmer of hope for next season.

Adelaide Form & Team News

Adelaide have won three games in a row, beating Hawthorn, GWS and Carlton, all sides who have caused upsets to the strong teams throughout the season.

They will be confident in themselves going into next year, as long as Richmond do not give them a heavy beating.

If they can beat Richmond, they stay off the bottom of the ladder and will have the second pick in the draft. Defeat means it is the wooden spoon for them as well as the top draft pick.

Richmond Form & Team News

Richmond are on a mission to finish in the four and will do so if they can beat Adelaide in this match.

They are in a vein of form that we have seen for the past three seasons, where they look the team to beat heading into the Finals period.

David Astbury, Shane Edwards and possibly Josh Caddy will be back in the side, giving them a bit of match fitness heading into the Finals.

Ivan Soldo will be the main out due to his ACL injury as well as Tom Lynch with hamstring soreness.

Adelaide vs Richmond Head To Head

Adelaide hold the advantage heading into this match having won three of the last five against the Tigers.

It is important to note that those three wins have all been at Adelaide Oval where they meet again, so this match may not be as one sided as it does look on paper.

Adelaide vs Richmond Betting Odds

Adelaide are the $3.95 outsiders while Richmond are the $1.24 hard favourites.

The line for Richmond has been set at -21.5.

Adelaide vs Richmond Match Up

A key match up in this game looks between Ben Keays and Marlion Pickett.

Pickett has been a pinch hitter in the side since his outstanding debut in the 2019 AFL Grand Final debut. He can cause some damage through the midfield when the Tigers are up and about and can be dangerous when entering the forward line and kicking to a target.

Keays has been one of the most improved players in the competition, not being able to hold a spot in the Brisbane side, but coming to Adelaide and being a gun.

Keays was great against GWS last week, winning a lot of ball and deserving of a fresh contract next season.
