2018 AFL Round 22: Richmond Tigers vs. Essendon Bombers
August 16, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Friday, the Richmond Tigers will play the Essendon Bombers in Round 22 of the AFL. Game time is set 7:50PM AEST and will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Grounds.

Richmond moves into Round 22 at the top of the table and has little breathing space between 2nd placer West Coast. The Tigers are in superb form and all of its players are injury-free. Meanwhile, Essendon continues its push for a slot in the postseason but may need a lot of work against Richmond.

It is a must-win situation for the Bombers on Round 22 in order for them to climb up in the ladder. A loss against the Tigers will end their chances to move into the postseason.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Richmond Tigers as a 15.5-point favorite to beat the Essendon Bombers on Friday night.
