Melbourne v Collingwood
Melbourne take on Collingwood in front of a huge crowd at the G today, and due to the inconsistency of the Pies this year we could see a close affair. The Magpies had a stinker last time out when they went down pretty heavily to Port last round. The Demons also suffered a loss, but a lot more respectable, losing by just 18 points to Hawthorn.
The Dees will be very hard to deal with today, both sides have had contrasting times in terms of clearances, Melbourne sit top of the ladder, whereas Collingwood are bottom. If Melbourne can get the ball to Hogan and Watts they could win pretty easily. Pies could dominate the midfield but they have worries in the forward line, I’m getting on Melbourne to win the Queens birthday clash at $1.76.
All the stats point to the Dees bursting out the blocks, for that reason I’m shocked to see I can get on Watts to kick the first $14! Watch where you get on though as one of my corporates is only offering $9.5.
