Game Notes: This is a difficult game to tip. The Pies lead the head-to-head over the past few years by a mile, having won 9 of the past 11 games (plus 1 draw) and Melbourne haven’t won back-to-back games against the Pies since 2006-07, but times have changed.
Melbourne were good against the Giants in round 1 and came close to defeating the Kangaroos last week. If you ignore the loss to the Bombers, they seem a vastly improved side. Meanwhile the Pies fell over the line against Richmond and have otherwise been disappointing in big losses to St Kilda and Sydney.
I reckon this will be close!
Thommo’s Tip: Melbourne by 6 points.
