St Kilda must record a rare interstate victory.

 

This is a crucial game for both teams with Port Adelaide needing to win to push for a vital top four spot and the Saints needing to record a rare interstate victory if they are going to return to the finals.

 

Both sides were bitterly disappointing last week with Port Adelaide nearly going goalless throughout the first half in a lacklustre performance against Melbourne where they lost after starting firm favourites.


St Kilda have their own issues with the concerns around them building after being handled by the Swans to the tune of seven goals.

 

Port Adelaide has won five straight games against St Kilda, with the Saints having never won at the Adelaide Oval with the visitors heading there with an ugly 0-7 record.

 

The Power are yet to beat a single side this season inside the top eight, but due to their favourable draw they are incredibly still well poised to finish in the top four and potentially set up a Week One final with fierce rivals Adelaide.


When these sides met last the Power scored 20 goals and a total of 133 points and with St Kilda struggling to kick winning scores we expect the Power to again pile on the points and record a comfortable victory.

 

Robbie Gray produced a brilliant performance when these sides last clashed kicking both the most goals on the ground and gaining the most disposals. He had four goals and 37 touches and does look a good betting proposition to boot the most.

 

Port is a confidence side and should be able to take control of the midfield against the Saints who outside Seb Ross and the injured Leigh Montagna, has struggled to find the footy this season.

 

The Power will be keen to start the game strongly to get the crowd involved and make amends for their goalless first quarter last week so while not normally a bet type we would entertain, the first quarter line of -9.5 at $1.62 (Unibet) on the Power looks a good bet.

 

STATS BET

Robbie Gray kicked a game high five goals when these teams met last and should again kick the most.
