I produced the goods last Friday when I landed all three tips when the Tigers took on the Pies, fingers crossed I’ll repeat the trick tonight! For the second week in a row I’m backing a miserable night for the Collingwood fans! Which will hopefully keep them quiet for another week at least…
The Bulldogs have a great chance of climbing into the top four, after tonight they have easy games against Essendon and Fremantle to finish their season. They sit four points behind a cluster of teams sitting on 56 points, which makes this game massive for them. The Pies are playing for pride, they’ve still got a (unlikely) chance of finishing above both St Kilda and Melbourne, therefore will be treating this clash pretty seriously.
Collingwood were pretty awful last Friday night, a number of their players look out of form and ready for the season to come an end. They’ve axed Cloke again, but even with Travis they lack serious players in their forwards. They’ll struggle to kick many against the Bulldogs, who have conceded the 2nd fewest points this season. I’m all over the $7.5 on offer for the Pies to score under 50 points tonight. They’ve kicked just over fifty against much worse defences on five occasions already this season.
Get on Jake Stringer to kick four for the Dogs, the young man has kicked 4+ on four different occasions this year. He’s been disappointing in the last three games, but will deliver against the Pies.
