Predictions: After Round 19, 2019

I'm leading with my favourite graphic today: placings. Most of the final placing intervals closed by 1, but a few closed by 2. Namely, Essendon and Adelaide. Essendon had [3,10] last week, but are at [4,9] this week.

Tipping & Ratings: After Round 19, 2019

The matches that generated the most movement were Carlton's upset win over … Continue reading Tipping & Ratings: After Round 19, 2019

Tipping & Ratings: After Round 16

With blow-outs and upsets, this wasn't a great round from any perspective. Essendon rescued the MAE from complete ruin, but it only made it look slightly nicer. Heaps of movement this week. Despite barely moving in a rating sense, Sydney dropped 3 positions thanks to Brisbane, North Melbourne and Richmond getting decent increases. Geelong have … Continue reading Tipping & Ratings: After Round 16
