AFL Round 22 Preview & Betting – Western Bulldogs Vs Essendon

Saturday night will see a top four fighter face a bottom four underachiever, as the Western Bulldogs welcome Essendon to the Etihad Stadium.

This is one of the easier games of the weekend to pick, so if you are looking to make the most of the AFL betting markets then head to Sportsbet.

The Bulldogs are favourites for the victory this weekend at $1.19 with Ladbrokes.com.au, despite losing drastically last weekend.

The Swans demolished the Bulldogs at the SCG, so there’s no doubt they will look to give their fans the end to the season they’re hoping for.

There was little for the Bulldogs to take away from last weekend’s game, so they need to look to the task at hand this weekend rather than at what went wrong.

The Bombers are at $4.75 for the win at Ladbrokes.com.au. They lost to the out of sorts Brisbane Lions last weekend, and have been up and down throughout the season.

However when placing their bets punters should remember the round 18 upset, as the Bombers overcame long odds to defeat the Saints – but will they do it again this weekend?

Skipper Jobe Watson will have to up his teams morale and lead by example if he wants his side to end their season on a huge high.

Our tip of the match is to go with the odds and back a Bulldogs win by 30-39 points at $8 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
