Fremantle has the chance to win a third straight game and keep the finals dream alive.
After two rounds footy fans and experts were talking about Ross Lyon and the Fremantle Dockers finishing bottom of the AFL ladder.
Fast forward a fortnight and after recording upset wins against the reigning premiers (Western Bulldogs) and Melbourne at the MCG the purple pride are back and they should record a third straight win to remarkably put themselves back in the top eight.
Looking longer term Fremantle are still $3.50 to make the finals @ Sportsbet, William Hill and TAB, if you want to be even more ambitious and take them to win the first flag in the club’s history @ $41 with UBet and Crownbet.
The season is about to go from bad to worse for North Melbourne who has now snatched defeat from the jaws of victory against Geelong and the Western Bulldogs.
The Kangaroos have many issues, but the main ones are a dysfunctional forward line and they simply cannot stop opposition sides when they obtain momentum.
Ben Cunnington was a shining light last week against the Dogs gaining a game high 33 touches and he is worth looking at this week to get over 26.5 (@ $1.88 Sportsbet and Crownbet).
These teams met once last season with North Melbourne prevailing 20.12.132 to 14.17.101 in Round 4 at Etihad Stadium.
Despite his side getting beaten, Lachie Neale was the star that day racking up a game high 35 possessions and he showed last week in the win over Melbourne he is playing in similar form with 22 touches and a match winning four goal haul.
While Fremantle has struggled up forward this season they seem to now be focused on midfielders pushing forward and kicking goals.
Neale kicked four against the Dees and David Mundy chimed in with three.
In this fixture last year Nat Fyfe kicked a game high four goals so if playing the most goals market it might pay to look for value.
Nat Fyfe booted four goals when these teams last clashed in Round 4 of 2016 and he is worth a bet at nice odds to do the same again.
