Richmond Tigers vs North Melbourne Predictions and Betting Tips
🏈 AFL Round 23 Match Preview
⏰ 19 August 2023 - 13:45 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Melbourne Cricket Ground
Aussie Rules fans are gearing up for an exciting match as the Richmond Tigers host the North Melbourne Kangaroos in an upcoming AFL fixture. This highly anticipated clash is set to entertain on 19 August 2023 at 1:45pm AEST.
In the lead-up to gameday, AusBetSites has gathered the most up-to-date betting odds from 3 betting sites in 37 markets. The current odds have installed the home side Tigers as strong favorites at 1.21 against the Kangaroos. But North Melbourne will be eager to snag an upset win on their interstate trip.
After falling to St Kilda in Round 22, the Richmond Tigers are officially out of finals contention this season. Richmond now sits 13th on the ladder with 9 wins and a draw from their 2023 campaign.
They face a North Melbourne outfit that has lost 19 consecutive matches and is second-last on the table. The Kangaroos have been competitive recently, with 3 of their last 4 losses by under 10 points. Last week they went down to Essendon by 9 points despite a 5-goal haul from Nick Larkey.
Larkey will be a focal point up forward for North Melbourne, while Luke Davies-Uniacke and Harry Sheezel should find plenty of the footy. But it's hard to tip the Kangaroos with confidence given their extensive losing run.
Richmond's experienced core including Dustin Martin, Jayden Short and Shai Bolton will be difficult for North to contain. Meanwhile, Tim Taranto should provide strong supply for the Tigers' midfield. The Tigers should have too much class and get the job done at home.
Richmond Tigers vs North Melbourne Head-to-Head
The Richmond Tigers and North Melbourne Kangaroos have faced off just twice in the last 3 years. In their most recent head-to-head meetings, the clubs have split results with 1 win apiece. Out of the 2 games played between Richmond and North Melbourne during this period, the head-to-head record stands level. With each team earning a victory in their last 2 matches, this has been a tightly-contested modern rivalry when these clubs clash. Heading into this upcoming game, the Tigers and Kangaroos have an even head-to-head record to draw from over the past few seasons. With the teams splitting their most recent contests, this shapes as an intriguing matchup between two sides with plenty still to play for late in the year.
