The second and last of the elimination finals will take to the MCG on Saturday night, when the Western Bulldogs take on the Sydney Swans as they battle it out for a place in the Grand Final.
This looks set to be a close one, so for punters looking to bet on either side head to Ladbrokes.com.au to get the most lucrative of the close odds.
The Western Bulldogs suffered a huge defeat to Collingwood last round, and have the slight outsider odds of $1.95 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
The Bulldogs are coming into this one off the back of some unimpressive form of late having lost three of the last five matches, which includes a loss to the Swans just four weeks ago.
They have suffered with injuries this year and have five key players out for the rest of the season, however long that may be.
Skipper Brad Johnson announced his retirement earlier this week, so expect to see him play a blinder.
No doubt he will be hoping his side up their game for him, so this is not his last time running out on the oval this season.
The Swans put on a gritty show of footy last weekend, and are the favourites at $1.85 for the win with Ladbrokes.com.au.
They are coming into this game off the back of some great form not losing since round 18, having overcome four top-eight teams in five weeks.
On top of their great form, Sydney’s confidence will grow if Ben McGlynn and Daniel Bradshaw make a return to the squad and improve the strength of their frontline.
One thing punters should be aware of if considering going with the odds and backing Sydney, is their less than impressive record at the MCG.
They have won just a single game from 10 at the prolific ground, so can they turn that around this weekend?
We are tipping to go against the odds and back a Bulldogs win by 10-19 points at $7.40 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
AFLRules Tip Of The Match
All eyes will be on Barry Hall this round as he faces his former side, so keep an eye on him as he is set to impress. It’s a tough one to pick, so expect a gritty, passionate and dirty affair at the MCG on Saturday night. If you look at recent form the Swans are the clear favourite, along with the better injury list – however more often than not, that can create a false sense of security. Considering the Bulldogs’ less than impressive results lately, we are tipping to go against the odds and back a Bulldogs win by 10-19 points at $7.40 with Ladbrokes.com.au. However, if you think you can foresee the future then take a punt on the exact winning margins which offer double digit odds at Ladbrokes.com.au!
