The Cats came out with all guns blazing last round, tacking their frustrations from the previous round’s loss to Collingwood out on the Western Bulldogs.
Geelong are at $1.17 for the win with Ladbrokes.com.au, and if Steve Johnson is anywhere near as handy as he was last weekend could pay well to the punter. Johnson booted five last round, while Gary Ablett was back to peak form with 39 disposals.
Carlton head into this one as the clear underdogs at $5.10 for the win with Ladbrokes.com.au. The Blues have notched up two impressive wins over the past two rounds, so while the Cats present a tough challenge a win is not out of the question.
The Blues had a few stand out players last weekend in Jarrad Waite and Jeffrey Garlett who both ended on 4.2 in front of goal. Chris Judd was instrumental once again while Heath Scotland also made a big impact.
This round gives Carlton an opportunity to claim three consecutive wins which would be the first time this season – so can they do it?
We see Geelong asserting themselves for the flag here, so we tip a Geelong win by 30-39 points at $8 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
