Only had 3 of my 9 legs get up last week but do you think I’m going to let that little setback dampen my enthusiasm? Pffffffft.
Collingwood v Carlton (MCG) – Collingwood 40+ – 2.45
Can smell the blood in the water and with the sting of the ten goal drubbing fresh in their minds will go in for the kill.
North v WC (Bellerive) – North 1-24 – 3.80
Do you remember West Coast’s last away win? I didn’t either. It was in R5 against Richmond at Etihad. Since then they have lost away games at Etihad, the MCG and the Gabba to Essendon, Collingwood and Brisbane. This is my pick of the round.
Melbourne v Richmond (MCG) – Richmond 40+ – 2.20
Richmond have a point to prove and are a much better team than Brisbane who beat Melbourne by 10 goals last week. My question regarding who would kick Melbourne’s goals was valid – Sam Blease the only multiple goalkicker with 2.
Sydney v Brisbane (SCG) – Sydney -36.5 – 2.00
Brisbane’s been travelling well lately with good wins over Melbourne and the Dogs but that just improves Sydney’s line for this game. Take advantage of it.
St Kilda v Essendon (Docklands) – Essendon 1-39 – 2.15
The Saints will be keen to show they’re a better team than the one that was well beaten by North last week. Essendon’s class will show out but it’ll be close.
Port v Adelaide (Footy Park) – Adelaide 1-39 2.20
Its always close between these two. Adelaide will get up though.
Hawthorn v GWS (MCG) – Hawthorn 100+ – 2.20
A sunny day has been forecast for Melbourne on Sunday meaning not even the rain will protect GWS from the wrath of the Hawks at home.
GC v Geelong (Carrara) – Geelong -62.5 – 2.00
A shower or 2 is forecast for Carrara on Sunday but I doubt that will stop a ravenous Cats outfit from devouring the hapless Suns.
Fremantle v WBD (Subiaco) – Fremantle 1-39 – 2.20
The Dogs haven’t been much chop lately, well all year really, but they’re playing Freo who aren’t anything special themselves but should scrape home only because they’re playing at home.
If you were silly enough to multi all legs up, it’d pay you $1,875/1. Maybe throw $1 at it.
