Sydney will continue their march to the finals with a win.


There has been some big upsets in the AFL this season but it is nearly impossible to see the Fremantle Dockers defeating the finals bound Sydney Swans.

Hawthorn is the only side in the competition to beat the Swans since Round 6 and after a horror start to the season Sydney is charging towards the finals.

The Swans need to win their remaining three games to ensure they finish in the top six, which would mean a double chance in the finals or a home final at worst in week one.


When the Swans and Dockers last clashed Sydney won by 90 points and that game was at the Dockers home ground.


Lance Franklin kicked two goals and three behinds when these sides met last and will be desperate for a big game after a lacklustre month which has led to him relinquishing favoritism for the Coleman Medal.


Tough midfielder Josh Kennedy had a game high 45 disposals when these two sides last clashed and looks a good bet to gain the most from Group A.


Fremantle recorded a workmanlike 23-point win over the insipid Gold Coast Suns last weekend but they have not won a game at the SCG since 2011.

The Dockers have struggled all season on the road having lost all four games played outside of Victoria and Perth.


Sydney got out to $101 in premiership betting after Round 6 but is now right back in the hunt with the best odds now available $6 with Sportsbet.


This game will see the Swans comfortably get the four points and they look a risk free option for multi bets. They should win comprehensively and the 40+ Winning Margin option is paying $1.53 @ Sportsbet.


While the Dockers have been competitive in most game this season this is a bridge too far for them to put up a fight..
