AFL Finals Week Two Preview & Betting – Geelong Vs Fremantle

Bouncing off the two crucial finals this weekend is Geelong versus Fremantle, as the two take to the MCG this Friday evening.

For punters looking to place a wager on this one head to Ladbrokes.com.au for the best online odds and markets going.

Geelong heads into this one as the dominant favourite for the win at $1.11 with Ladbrokes.com.au as they come up against yet another obstacle preventing them from making the Grand Final.

The Cats will be looking to rectify that shocking loss to the Saints last weekend, as the possibility of facing Collingwood in the preliminary finals pushes them on.

Joel Selwood is one man the Dockers will have to handle as the Cats player will look to make a far superior impact on the game than he did last week, finishing on just four possessions.

Teammate Jimmy Bartel has expressed his belief in Selwood, proving the strong team spirit flowing through the squad at this cut-throat point of the season.

While it was a lacklustre show from the Cats last weekend, their finals experience from the past few years certainly stands them shoulders above Freo.

Fremantle have been the shock addition to this stage of the season, and have long but lucrative odds of $6.80 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Punters should remember Freo overcame the odds the last time these two met back in round three, with skipper Matthew Pavlich booting five in the win over the Cats.

Fremantle were superb in their defeat of Hawthorn last weekend, with Pavlich leading his side by example once again.

Speculation for the Dockers is surrounding star ruckman Aaron Sandilands who suffered a knock to his knee which kept him out of training earlier this week.

Coach Mark Harvey has confirmed the giant will play in the game, but the impact he will make is yet to be decided – so will it be enough?

Our tip of the match is to back Geelong to win by 40-49 points at Ladbrokes.com.au.

AFLRules Tip Of The Match

On paper this fixture looks to have just one result, and in more ways than one. Geelong will be out to rectify last weekend’s result, while Fremantle will be hoping to continue their winning streak. It’s hard to see the Dockers – inexperienced when it comes to finals footy – be able to step it up against the reigning premiers, which possess so much experience in that field. For this one we can’t see it going anyway other than a Cats triumph, and so our tip of the match is to back Geelong to win by 40-49 points at Ladbrokes.com.au. However if you are highly confident you can pick the scoreline, then head to Ladbrokes.com.au and wager on the highly lucrative exact winning margin which offers double digit odds.
