Injuries have unfortunately struck down the Fremantle Dockers.
Throughout the Fremantle Dockers history if they didn’t have bad luck, then they would not have any luck at all.
After losing their first two games this season the Dockers have responded powerfully winning three straight and six of their last seven to put themselves right in the hunt for a finals and even a top four berth.
Sadly for the purple haze though they have been decimated by injury ahead of the game with Adelaide that has vastly diminished their winning chances.
The Adelaide Crows snapped a two-game losing streak with a huge 80-point win over the hapless Brisbane Lions and as a result returned to the top of premiership markets.
Rory Sloane is at the pointy end of Brownlow Medal markets and returned to form last week against the Lions with 31 possessions; he is instrumental to the Crows midfield and should find plenty of the ball.
Look at Sloane to get 30 disposals or more ($2.40 @ Sportsbet) and entertain the thought of backing him for the Brownlow now before he continues to firm - you can still snap up $6 with Crownbet.
The Adelaide Crows have been the highest scoring team in the competition this season, racking up totals of 147, 113, 100, 153, 153, 140, and 140. Every time the Crows have won they have scored 100 points or more, while they have failed to win any game when kept to less than 100 points.
The Total Game Score of 188.5 looks low and despite the fact the Dockers are renowned for playing in low scoring games, as evidenced by the fact the tally in their last two matches has been just 142 and 137 we anticipate the Crows will ensure it goes over by pilling home the goals.
Looking longer term the Crows are $4 to win the flag across the board.
Matt Crouch had 29 touches last week and again looks a good bet to get 25 or More Disposals. He is pretty short for that so go for a bit of value in the 35 Disposals or More which is returning $2.37 @ Sportsbet.
ADELAIDE OVER 39.5 POINTS
