Two undefeated teams clash at the home of football in a game predicted to be a finals preview.


The ‘Tiger Army’ is up and about after Richmond started the season with wins over two of their biggest rivals in Carlton and Collingwood and have a chance to make a real statement up against West Coast at the MCG.


West Coast are also undefeated, although their two wins were quite contrasting.


In Round 1 against North Melbourne they looked like a well-oiled machine before overcoming St Kilda with a barnstorming finish.


There are two big questions hanging over both these teams, the concern over Richmond remains that they have not defeated any genuine contenders and will be exposed when they do, while the Eagles have been compared to vegemite, they are great at home, but no good away.


Last season the Eagles won just one game at the MCG and that was against Carlton. In five games in Victoria last year that was their only win.


The Eagles midfield is both classy and deep.


Last time the teams met it was Andrew Gaff who stole the show collecting 33 disposals, which was clearly the most on the ground, stick with him again and snap up the over 27.5 disposals with Crownbet.


Dustin Martin was uncharacteristically quiet against West Coast last time they played where he had just 23 disposals and failed to score, the tattooed Tiger has started 2017 in terrific form and is worth a bet to collect 30 disposals or more.


The key matchup for the game will be Josh Kennedy up against Alex Rance.


Kennedy has won the Coleman Medal the past two seasons but despite the Eagles defeating Richmond by 68 points last time they met, Rance clearly took the points holding Kennedy to just two goals.


Kennedy has started the year in good form booting 11 goals in two games - whoever wins this dual between Kennedy and Rance will go a long way to determining who takes the four points.


It should be a fascinating match and we are sticking with the Tigers.



These teams played once last season with West Coast prevailing 18.17.125 to 9.3.57.


Despite the fact his team was comprehensively beaten and managed just nine goals, Tigers forward Jack Riewoldt was the star of the game booting four goals.


Stick with Jack to boot the most goals at a nice price.
