The game that makes Western Australia stand still could be a cracker!
The biggest game of the season in Western Australia is the clash between the two local sides West Coast and Fremantle with the former heading into this one off the back of three straight ‘derby’ wins.
Prior to that it was the Dockers having recorded six straight wins in this fixture.
This is a huge game, not only is pride of the a state on the line, but both teams can take their season record to 4-2 and put themselves in a golden position to push for the finals and even a vital top four berth.
West Coast was once again pathetic at the MCG last week - they have looked horrible at the venue in two losses this year to Richmond and Hawthorn - and will be desperate to silence their critics by winning the derby.
After losing their first two games of the season the Dockers have fought back in a big way with three straight wins and will go into this game full of confidence.
In what should be a close game, we are keen on the Dockers at the Line where they are given a 17.5 point start and will be taking the big odds on them winning. Ladbrokes have the boys at $3.25 so have something small on them.
In two clashes between these sides last year Matt Priddis was outstanding. Having 31 disposals in the first game and then a game high 33 in the second edition, after a quiet fortnight we think he will find plenty of the ball and are keen on him getting Over 35 Disposals with Sportsbet.
These games are always fiercely contested and this game shapes as a low scoring arm wrestle. Last week the Dockers won scoring just 67 points and the Eagles could only muster 75 total points in perfect conditions at the MCG.
While we are keen to be on the Dockers, the other bet we like is Total Points Under 176.5 ($1.90 @ Unibet).
When the sides met last Josh Kennedy kicked seven goals and we are keen on him kicking the Most Goals again.
MATT PRIDDIS – PLAYER TO HAVE 35 DISPOSALS OR MORE
