Welcome to the first AFL preview on Ace Sports Previews
Given props are a little harder to track and record, the initial purpose of these previews will be to highlight where perceived value can be found in markets available for matches each week.
Things will start cautiously, given the changes in rules from 2020 to 2021.
Here is a selection for Richmond vs Carlton this evening.
Player: Jason Castagna
Given the strength of the back 6 of Carlton is around key positions, I am happy to look outside of the standard forward line players of Tom Lynch and Jack Riewoldt for value in the goal scoring markets.
In suitable conditions, Castagna appeals here. He is a player that will benefit from the rule changes, and the reverting back to longer quarters, and should enjoy a return back to the MCG. Whilst players were missing, it is also comforting to note he was able to generate 6 scoring shots in his pre-season hitout against Collingwood as well.
Market: to score 2 goals or more
Odds: $2.35 at Topsport
