Well this could be an embarrassing night for the Bombers…
Even though Essendon have won three of the past five against the Eagles, they’re leagues apart and the West Coast team are the real deal at home! The Eagles are only 8th on the ladder, you wouldn’t expect a team in that position to be $1.01 faves against anyone, but that shows the struggles for the Bombers this term.
I’ve mentioned the Eagles are unbelieve at home, but they lost the last time out against the Crows, apart from that they had won their previous six games by an average of 68 points. It’s not who will win tonight, it’s how many they’ll win by. Kennedy, Darling, LeCras and Hill will be very difficult to contain. Kennedy could get close to ten figures tonight!
What chance of Essendon got? Well their only hope is their midfield, but they’ll be competing against one of the best. They rely heavily on Goddard and Zaharakis, for them to have any chance at all they need to see plenty of the ball.
No shock I’m tipping an Eagles win, easy win piling on them to win by 40+ points at $1.2. Looking for more value, I’ve already told you Kennedy could get close to double figures, get on him to have 6+ at $4.9!
