The TAB has released its 2019 over/under lines for all 18 AFL teams with 100 days to go until round one.

Gold Coast are by far the lowest placed side at 4.5 wins, with Carlton second last with 6.5.

At the other end of the table, Richmond are first with 14.5 wins, with premiers West Coast, Collingwood and Melbourne all with 13.5.

We’ve decided to look at all the lines, and give our thoughts about whether we believe the team will finish with more or less wins than the TAB believe.

Adelaide-Fremantle

Adelaide

  • Line: 12.5
  • Hanger Team Thinks: OVER

Adelaide will be looking to move on from a horror 2018. The Crows will hope for fully fit seasons from the likes of Rory Sloane and Brad Crouch. If the side can stay fit and focused then a return to the top eight is likely.

Brisbane

  • Line: 9.5
  • Hanger Team Thinks: OVER

Brisbane have quietly built a strong team that can only get better. With young stars like Harris Andrews and Cam Rayner at each end of the ground and the addition of Lachie Neale, the Lions should be thinking big in 2019.

Carlton

  • Line: 6.5
  • Hanger Team Thinks: UNDER

As if Carlton didn’t have enough problems, they have already lost their co-captain Sam Docherty to a second ACL injury in as many years. The pieces are there for Carlton in all areas of the ground, but the team is yet to click and 2019 looks like it could be another tough year for the Blues.

Collingwood

  • Line: 13.5
  • Hanger Team Thinks: OVER

It’s easy to forget that Collingwood made the Grand Final with an extensive injury list that featured players normally in their best 22. A fully fit Magpies side, with additions like Dayne Beams, should once again be aiming for a top four spot.

Essendon

  • Line: 12.5
  • Hanger Team Thinks: OVER

Essendon have been big free agency movers in the past two years and landed a big fish this off-season in the form of Dylan Shiel. With Shiel entering an already strong midfield and Joe Daniher set to return from injury, the Bombers could surprise many with where they end up.

Fremantle

  • Line: 9.5
  • Hanger Team Thinks: OVER

The Dockers are one of the tougher sides to predict. They have gained high-class talent in the form of Jesse Hogan and Rory Lobb, but also lost perennial ball-winner Lachie Neale. What impact these moves will have remains to be seen, but optimism is high in the west.
