Round 21 - The Race to the Finish line is as hot as ever!!
Aug 9th, 2017
We start with Friday night footy at Etihad Stadium and its the Western Bulldogs taking on GWS in a Block Buster. Whilst the Bulldogs have won their last few games I just don’t think they are playing at the elite intensity they were playing at this time last year so I recon the Giants will get the job done by 15 points.
Sydney bounced back last week with a solid win against the Cats and take on Fremantle at the SCG and should get the job done comfortably.
Geelong take on the red hot Tigers who haven’t beating Geelong in their last 12 games however I recon they will finally beat them and consolidate their position in the top 4! Richmond by 21 points.
Brisbane take on the Suns at the GABBA and whist the Lions have improved this year expect the Suns to bounce back now that the coach has been sacked!! History will tell after a sacking of the coach the team goes out the following week and wins so I’m sticking with that theory!!
Essendon back in the top 8 and looking to hold their spot take on the inform Crows at Etihad stadium and expect a top game here. Adelaide should win however I like the hunger from this young Bombers team. Adelaide by 17 points.
West Coast, disappointing again last week away, are at home to Carlton and must win and win well to stay in the hunt for a top 8 spot!! West coast by 25 points.
3 games on Sunday starting with Melbourne taking on St ‘Kilda in what will be a close, hard fought contest as these 2 teams who haven’t seen finals footy for some years are in the mix to claim a spot in the 8. I’m tipping Melbourne to bounce back after last weeks disappointing game.
Hawthorn who are hanging in there and have played some good footy in the last month take on the Kangaroo’s who have only won 5 games for the season so I’ll stay with the Hawks to win this game by 18 points.
Last game of the round and it’s Port Adelaide who were extremely disappointing last week take on Collingwood at home so I’m tipping the Power to bounce back and win by 27 points.
Have a great weekend!
