Round 16 - Getting to the pointy end
Jul 7th, 2017
Round 16 and we are getting close to the pointy end of the season with many top 8 spots up for grabs!!
We start with a Friday night game in Adelaide and it's the Crows against the Bulldogs who are struggling and the Crows have a chance to put a big dent in their top 8 chances. The Bulldogs are just not the same team as they were last season so I'm tipping the Crows by 21 points.
Hawthorn take on the Giants and the Hawks have some form in recent weeks and will take it up to the Giants who have some players out. This game will be close so I'm tipping the Giants by 10 points.
Collingwood take on Essendon in a must win game for both sides if they are to stay in touch with the top 8!! No real confidence however I'm tipping the Pies to win.
Sydney take on the Gold Coast Suns at the SCG and the Swans look like they are nearing their best footy at the right time of the year so Swans to win this game.
Brisbane impressive in their win last week against the Bombers take on the Cats up at the Gabba and this will be a tricky game for Geelong. I'll stay with the Cats to win however I will be watching this game closely.
St Kilda take on Richmond at Etihad Stadium
and the Saints where impressive is their win last week in Perth however it's hard to tip against the Tigers at the minute as they are playing some good footy.
North Melbourne take on Fremantle at Etihad Stadium and the Kangaroos should win this game as Fremantle now without Sandilands and McCathy up forward will struggle to kick a score. North to win by 30 points.
West Coast take on Port Adelaide in a must win game if they are to consolidate their position in the top 8. West Coast get Josh Kennedy back this week so I'm tipping them by 17 points.
Last game of the round and it's Carlton taking on Melbourne at the MCG in another game that's hard to tip so I'm going to stay with Melbourne to win this game by 12 points.
Have a great weekend!!
