A fascinating game Saturday night between two underachievers.
Both Fremantle and Gold Coast have again let their supporters down this season but it has been a contrasting year on when and how things have derailed.
Fremantle has fought tooth and nail this season but it has been a lack of goal scorers that has hurt the Dockers time and time again and cost them multiple victories. The Gold Coast Suns football club has represented the Gold Coast to perfection, lots of razzle dazzle, but little substance.
Gold Coast has had the wood over Fremantle in recent times, beating the Dockers in both clashes last season. In Round 2 the Suns won by 26 points and in Round 18 they won by 24.
The common theme in the wins for the Suns was star forward Tom Lynch who kicked bags of five and four which was a best on ground performance both times.
Like many of his high profile teammates, Lynch has been bitterly disappointing this season, but does represent a nice price to boot the most goals this week.
Fremantle has been brave the past month and deserve to give their faithful fans another win before the end of the season.
The Dockers star midfielders have been in good form recently and last week in the narrow loss to premiership fancies Greater Western Sydney, Nat Fyfe (31) and Lachie Neale (30) were the two leading disposal winners on the ground and both look a terrific bet to gain 30 or more this week against a Suns outfit that has applied less midfield pressure than any other side in the competition over the past month.
Fyfe and Neal are $4.50 and $3.75 respectively @ Sportsbet to gain 35 Disposals or More.
This game promises to be a low scoring arm wrestle with both sides out of form. Our suggested bet is to back the Dockers to win Under 39.5 points and also have something on the Total Match Score Under 168.5
Tom Lynch has kicked the most goals the past two times the teams clashed and looks a good bet to kick the most.
