The AFL season starts with a match between Richmond Tigers and Carlton Blues. There were many discussions and concerns about these events, should they be postponed, however they decided the league to start by the schedule, but behind closed doors without any spectators, due to the situation that occured outside of sport.
Because of that Richmond Tigers will not have any major advantage playing at home, however they will not need it. Richmond Tigers are one of the best teams in the league, last year they won 64 pts and finished the season on 3rd place. They play especially well at home. Also they have very good h2h record vs Carlton Blues , winning 9 consecutive matches, so they should be full of confidence ahead of this match.
On the other side, the guests, Carlton Blues are not very good team. Last season, they won only 28 points and finished on 16th position. They have terrible results away from home, so i will be suprised if they do any trouble or damage to Richmond Tigers in this match.
I decided to bet on this match, because i think there is huge quality gap between these two teams, so my bet is, Richmond Tigers ah -17.5.
