St Kilda suffered the shock defeat of round 18 going down to Essendon, and going down hard. They still head into this weekend as favourites at $1.22 with Ladbrokes.com.au, but then again they did last weekend too.
Questions are surrounding the Saints’ work ethic on the oval, and whether or not they can win without the likes of Sam Fisher and Sam Gilbert.
Jason Gram and Lenny Hayes were strong for St Kilda last round; although to overcome the confident side of Port Adelaide this Sunday they need more than two in-form players.
The Power are at long odds of $4.30 for the win at Ladbrokes.com.au, and after overcoming the odds last round by beating the high flying Hawthorn could pay well again this weekend.
Many critics wrote the Power off after losing long-term coach Mark Williams, but they have gone from strength to strength under the guidance of caretaker coach Matthew Primus – can they continue that this round?
Jay Schulz kicked four goals last round which would certainly come in handy against the Saints this weekend, while the likes of Justin Westhoff and Daniel Stewart could also cause havoc among the St Kilda defence.
Our tip of the match is to put a few dollars down on Port to claim the win at $4.50 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
AFLRules Tip Of The Match
This is set to produce one of the best games this weekend and as St Kilda have not won its last three matches could be another prime time for punters to go against the odds. Our tip of the match is to put a few dollars down on Port to claim the win at $4.50 with Ladbrokes.com.au, it may seem unrealistic but recent form points in that direction.
