Fremantle vs St Kilda (Sunday) Betting Preview & Tips
The final game of the weekend could arguably be the most important
The final game of the weekend could arguably be the most important.
Both these teams are fighting for survival so the atmosphere and intensity of this game should be finals-like.
St Kilda comes into the round sitting in eighth spot on the table with the Dockers set to join them on eight wins for the season with a victory. Last week the Dockers were excellent but lost while the Saints were poor but won - footy can be a funny game like that.
Fremantle looked set for a rare win at Geelong before the Cats steamrolled them in the second half to win by two points. St Kilda grinded out a less than impressive win over the Gold Coast Suns to keep their finals chances well and truly alive.
The Dockers play their best footy at Domain Stadium and it is becoming more and more apparent that the Saints simply cannot win at the ground. St Kilda has lost six straight games at the venue and has lost all five games interstate this season.
The Dockers on the other hand, despite their struggles have a 4-3 record at home this year.
Ball magnet Lachie Neale had 29 touches and kicked a goal and will be a key part to the game here as the Dockers welcome back Brownlow Medalist Nat Fyfe.
The winner of this game will be well placed to have a crack at the finals.
Fremantle is now $11 with Ladbrokes to make the finals while the Saints, who got out to as much as $7, are into $3.50 with Crownbet.
This game will be an arm wrestle, but we are sticking with Fremantle ($1.87 @ William Hill) to grind out a win in front of their home fans and as result keep their season alive.
This promises to be a low scoring game and a result we are keen to take the Total Score Under 167.5 at $1.90.
Darcy Tucker kicked three goals last week and looks a good bet to kick two or more.
