Can the Demons bounce back after a disappointing loss?

 

Melbourne has been incredibly frustrating for fans, tipsters and most importantly punters in 2017. The Demons have lost three times when favourite this season, biting the dust against Fremantle, Hawthorn and simply must beat Gold Coast if they are going to play finals.

 

Gold Coast has yet again disappointed this season. The Suns have looked okay with impressive home wins against Hawthorn and Geelong the highlights, but in their last match against Port Adelaide in China they lost by 72 points and managed an embarrassing score of just 38 points in perfect conditions.

 

Star utility Jack Watts will play a vital role in this game as he is the one player that the Dees will rely on heavily.

 

After a breakout season in 2016 the former number one draft pick has continued his outstanding form this season and has displayed durability.

 

Melbourne is currently missing All-Australian ruckman Max Gawn and full-forward Jesse Hogan and Watts has picked up the slack both playing the crucial role of key forward and ruckman, so look for him to again be amongst the goal kickers and have a look at some markets kicking two or more goals.

 

As he has done throughout his entire career since joining the Suns, Gary Ablett will have to shoulder the workload of the team if the Suns are going to cause the upset and win their fourth game of the season.

 

These teams clashed twice last season with Melbourne winning both games. The first was a comprehensive 73-point smashing in Round 7 at Metricon and the most recent was a thrilling two point in win in Round 19 at the MCG.

 

This is the last chance for Melbourne to prove that they are a genuine team and will be playing finals again this season and we are sticking with them to find a way to get a much needed win.

 

STATS BET

Jack Watts kicked an equal game high three goals when these teams played last and looks a good bet to kick the most majors.
