The mighty Collingwood have what seems on paper to be a run in the park come Saturday afternoon, when they welcome Adelaide to the MCG.
So if you want to make some money then head to Ladbrokes.com.au to punt on this one.
The home side are the obvious favourites for the win at $1.05 with Ladbrokes.com.au. And while those odds hardly seem wagering on – if you put down a fair bit, you’ll see it come back!
The Pies are sitting six points clear at the top of the ladder and haven’t lost since round 10, way back in May. They have been simply superb on the oval, and demolished Essendon last round despite missing keys players.
Travis Cloke booted five for the Pies last round, while Scott Pendlebury continued his great form with 21 disposals.
Simon Prestigiacomo has been instrumental in the Pies’ defence and will have the responsibility of taming Kurt Tippett – a challenge he is certainly capable of achieving on a good day.
If you’re looking for long odds this weekend Adelaide could be the way to go at $10 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
The Crows have shown glimpses of some superb footy this season – upsetting the Cats in round 16 with a gritty performance. But overall they have been inconsistent losing to sides far below them on the ladder.
The Crows are also facing a long list of injuries and hardly possess the depth of a squad needed to trouble the likes of Collingwood.
Our tip of the match is to go with a Pies win by 60-69 points at $9 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
AFLRules Tip Of The Match
The only way we see Adelaide coming out on top for this one is if Mick Malthouse decides to rest key players in the lead up to the finals, and even then it will be a challenge for the Crows. While Malthouse has announced he has no intention of doing that, last weekend four players were ruled out for seemingly ‘nothing’ injuries. Therefore our tip of the match is to go with a Pies win by 60-69 points at $9 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
