Two 5-0 teams do battle in a game some anticipate will be a Grand Final preview.

 

These two teams are both unbeaten after five rounds and supporters are dreaming of premiership glory.

 

While most experts anticipated the Crows would be around the mark this season, the Tigers have been the early surprise and are looking to win their first flag since 1980 where they have firmed from $67 into $21.(Unibet).

 

Richmond does have a decent record at the Adelaide Oval having won two of their five matches and the Tigers should at very worse be competitive again this week.

 

The Tigers are $5.20 to win @ Unibet but we fancy them at the Line.

 

Dual Coleman medalist Jack Riewoldt was back to his brilliant best last week in the win over Melbourne booting a game high six goals including the first of the game and will again be the focal point for the Tigers up forward.

 

When the teams played last the Crows won by 36 points with Taylor Walker booting a game high four goals.

 

Both teams have set themselves up nicely after winning their first five games, but know the importance of this match as it shapes as a classic ‘eight pointer’ with Richmond and Adelaide pushing hard for top four spots.


It is impossible not to be impressed with Adelaide so far this season - they are the highest scoring team in the competition and love playing at the Adelaide Oval, after winning 11 of their 13 games at the ground last season they are 3-0 this year.

 

Adelaide has been incredibly high scoring this year but we are looking to buck the trend here with the Total Points Under 198.5 @ $1.91 (bet365) looking good.

 

The game is set to be played in the twilight and the weather forecast could be conducive to dewy conditions and therefore the game will turn into a scrap.

 

We will know much more about both these teams after this one and an unlikely win from the Tigers will have their army of supporters getting excited.

 

STATS BET

When these teams played last Brandon Ellis had a game high 39 disposals. Look for him to dominate once more with the $3.20 @ Sportsbet for him to have 25 Disposals or more looking juicy.

 

RECOMMENDED BET:

RICHMOND +34.5


VALUE PLAY:

BRANDON ELLIS – PLAYER TO HAVE 25 DISPOSALS OR MORE
