We've already begun our NFL tipping for 2018 and already seen some upsets. We may well see the same in the AFL, particularly in the early rounds as sides develop their game plans.

Thursday March 22:

Richmond v Carlton: The reigning Premiers take on a Blues outfit that will be missing Bryce Gibbs (now at Adelaide) and with a question mark over key player Matthew Kreuzer. I can't see an upset here. RICHMOND WIN

Friday March 23:

Essendon v Adelaide: The Bombers are on the rise but the Crows have one of the strongest lists in the AFL. It will be close but I'm tipping ADELAIDE LOSS

Saturday March 24:

St Kilda v Brisbane: Both teams will be looking to improve on their 2017 performance. The home ground advantage sways me. ST KILDA WIN

Port Adelaide v Fremantle: Both sides have recruited well in the off season but I'm not convinced the Dockers can kick enough goals. PORT ADELAIDE WIN

Gold Coast v North Melbourne: Two teams that struggle at times but the Suns show more promise. GOLD COAST WIN

Hawthorn v Collingwood: Possibly the game of the round. The Pies have their share of injuries and this might tip the scales in favour of the home team. HAWTHORN WIN

Sunday March 25:

GWS v Bulldogs: The Doggies will be looking to bounce back after suffering Premiership hangovers but the Giants look too strong. GWS WIN

Melbourne v Geelong: The Demons were unlucky not to play finals last year and will be looking to go one better this year. Geelong are always thereabouts and might win a close one. GEELONG WIN

West Coast v Sydney: With two Brownlow medalists retiring, a question mark hangs over the Eagles' midfield - an area where the Swans excel. SYDNEY WIN
