The Cats need to hit back strongly this week.

 

Geelong cannot put a foot wrong between now and the end of the season if they are going to finish in the top two and get a vital home final in week one.

 

The Cats were disappointing last week against the Adelaide Crows with some late goals flattering them for those looking at the scoreboard. The biggest positive for Geelong is the form from Harry Taylor since they sent him forward.


Taylor was outstanding last week booting a game high five goals against Adelaide and will be the focal point for the Cats again this week. Check out the markets to see what corporate bookies after offering for him to boot the most.

 

Brownlow Medalist Patrick Dangerfield was clearly affected by injury last week against his former side and would not have polled a Brownlow vote.

 

With Dustin Martin seemingly doing it with ease at the moment Dangerfield needs a big game this week or he will be replaced by Martin as favourite.

 

The problem with Geelong is that when their two superstars Patrick Dangerfield and Joel Selwood do not dominate a game, they are incapable of getting their hands on the footy.

 

Last week in the loss to the Crows, Dangerfield had less of an impact than his 25 disposals would suggest while Selwood chimed in with some late touches to get his number up to 26 but was not a factor when the game was there to be won.

 

Geelong has struggled against the bad teams over the past two seasons and as a result our suggested bet for this fixture is to take them winning by Under 39.5 points.

 

Carlton did cause an upset and beat Geelong when they played last, which was in Round 10 also at Etihad Stadium, but the Blues are not playing as well now as they were then.

 

Geelong should grind out a victory but it won’t be by a big margin.

 

STATS BET

Harry Taylor played forward last week against Adelaide and kicked a game high five goals. Look for him to easily notch 3 or More and for a bit of value, have a crack at Most Goals too.
