It is always fascinating watching Gary Ablett up against his former side.

 

These two teams were both extremely disappointing last week and will be desperate to atone.

 

Little superstar Gary Ablett was clearly the best player on the ground against North Melbourne  last week racking up a thumping 45 disposals and booting a goal, he could be headed for a third Brownlow Medal and looks great odds at $26 with bet365 and Ladbrokes.

 

Ablett will need to be at his brilliant best if the Suns are going to cause the upset against his former side, and while we are tipping Ablett will find plenty of the ball against his former side, and potentially future club, we are anticipating the Cats will get themselves back on track.

 

Geelong was pathetic last week against Collingwood losing their first game for the season as the Pies proved the theory that if you stop Patrick Dangerfield and Joel Selwood, then the Cats are extremely beatable.

 

Dangerfield had just 21 touches with Selwood even quieter, held to just 17 touches.


Look for the two champion midfielders to bounce back and we predict they will both record 30 or more disposals.

 

These teams met once last season where Geelong won by a thumping 120 points.

 

Tom Hawkins booted four goals in that win and will again be a focal point against the Suns as he looks to bounce back from his first bad game of the season last week against Collingwood.

 

This should be a free flowing and high scoring game of football.

 

So far this season the Suns have had their defensive struggles conceding 98, 160, 53, 82,153 and 107 points and therefore we are looking at the Total Points Over 195.5 ($1.91 @ bet365).

 

The Cats will find themselves sitting pretty at 6-1 after seven rounds with a win over Gold Coast and they are clearly on track for a tilt at another premiership. Take the $10 with bet365 about them winning another flag.

 

STATS BET

Joel Selwood had a game high 32 disposals when these teams met last and should again collect 30+.

 

RECOMMENDED BET:

GEELONG UNDER 39.5
