Game notes: The Bulldogs are likely to start favourites against a Geelong side off the boil, but the visitors will need to snap a 10-game losing streak against the Cats since 2009 if they’re to claim the four points. Another glaring stat is the Dogs haven’t won at the Cattery since 2003. Whether playing for Adelaide or Geelong, Patrick Dangerfield has been a constant thorn in the Dogs’ side, and limiting the Brownlow medallist’s impact will be central in Luke Beveridge’s planning. Something else that would be worrying the premiership coach is his side’s ongoing inability to put a decent score on the board from an adequate amount of inside 50s. Chris Scott on the other hand, was furious with the Cats’ paltry 13 first-half tackles in the loss to Essendon last week, so expect a fired up home side looking for redemption.
Thommo’s Tip: Geelong by 10 points.
