This will pit two of the biggest failures this season against each other.

 

Both these teams have been abject disappointments this season which is going to see two legends depart.

 

Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley will almost certainly be let go at the end of the season while Gold Coast Suns inaugural captain and Brownlow Medalist Gary Ablett has clearly had enough of his underachieving teammates and will return to his former club Geelong.

 

Both sides again disappointed last week with the Pies never in the hunt against the Bombers while Gold Coast once again just went through the motions in a big loss to Sydney.

 

Adding to the mystery of trying to pick the winner in this game is the fact that both teams are horribly out of form with Gold Coast having lost three of their past four matches with Collingwood having lost four straight.

 

If you are trying to find a positive for a team in order to have bet, there is a case to be made for the Gold Coast Suns when playing at Metricon Stadium.

 

Gold Coast has won more games at the venue than they have lost this year with a 4-3 record and they do have victories over Geelong and West Coast at the ground.

 

Collingwood head into the game sitting in 15th spot but they have been competitive at various stages throughout the season. It is surprising to see that Gold Coast is favourite ($1.87 @ bet365, Unibet) because no matter who the Suns are playing they do not deserve favouritism.

 

It is not a game that we can punt on with a huge degree of confidence but Collingwood do hold appeal especially considering that they can be backed with a few points start at the line.

 

Look for the Collingwood midfield to be the difference with Scott Pendlebury and Adam Treloar likely to rack up plenty of disposals.

 

STATS BET

Scott Pendlebury had the most Collingwood disposals last week and looks a good chance at 30 or more disposals. You can take $1.91 @ Sportsbet for it to happen.
