Rounding out this weekend the bottom of the table West Coast will welcome North Melbourne to the Subiaco Oval, so if you want to get in on this match’s action head to Sportsbet!
It is no surprise to see the home side as the outsiders for this one, albeit only slight, at $2.02 with Ladbrokes.com.au. The Eagles were dealt a single-point loss by Port Adelaide last weekend, which means this is a must win to keep chances of not finishing the season with the wooden spoon alive.
It has been a disappointing couple of rounds for the Eagles. Despite having shown signs of improvement they suffered a last second loss to the Lions, backed up with round 20’s result.
Andrew Strijk managed three goals last round, while youngster Luke Shuey was another impressive player on the oval – will they replicate that this week?
North Melbourne are at $1.80 for the win with Ladbrokes.com.au. They suffered a solid loss to the reforming St Kilda outfit last weekend, but prior to that managed a 54-point win against Fremantle.
The Roos still have a slight chance of making the finals this season if they win, but all that hope rides on Hawthorns result against the Dockers.
Passion will be flowing from the visitors with the game marking skipper Brent Harvey’s 300th AFL game, and will certainly look to mark the milestone with a thriller.
Our tip of the match is to go with a North Melbourne win by 30-39 points at $9 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
