Can the Brisbane Lions win their second game of the season?

 

That will largely depend on the enigma that is Fremantle. The Dockers have played their season in patches and after they defeated Carlton in Round 9 they looked set for a return to the finals and a genuine chance to finish the home and away season in the top four.

 

The last fortnight has been horrendous for the purple haze though.

 

They were dismantled by 100 points in pouring rain and last week were lacklustre losing by 20 points.

 

Brownlow Medalist Nat Fyfe needs to do more if the Dockers are going to win this game; he is one of the most damaging players in the league but is not getting his hands on the footy with just 25 and 24 disposals the past fortnight.

 

Brisbane has not won a game since defeating crosstown rivals Gold Coast in Round 1, but on the back of an honourable loss against Collingwood in their most recent match they will give themselves a genuine chance of causing the upset.

 

Midfielders Dayne Zorko and Dayne Beams both showed a returned to form against the Pies.

 

The key Brisbane midfielders will be pivotal to their chances here and on the back of a week off, the club will have targeted this match to get a moral boosting victory.

 

Fremantle does have a good recent record at the Gabba having won their past four matches at the ground after losing their first eight games at the venue.

 

In one of the intriguing games of the weekend the Lions are way, way over the odds at $3.55 (Luxbet) to win and should cover the line where they are given a 22.5 point start.

 

Both teams have struggled to score over the past few weeks so this game could end up being an arm wrestle and therefore there might be a betting opportunity in taking the Total Points to go Under 182.5 ($1.91 @ bet365).

 

STATS BET

Dayne Beams had 28 disposals when the Lions played last and looks a good chance at 30+.
