Can the Cats break a recent drought against Collingwood?
Geelong bounced back in emphatic fashion last week against Richmond to remind the footballing world that they will again be prominent in September discussions.
Geelong was dismantled at home against the Sydney Swans a fortnight ago losing by 46 points, but bounced back with a 14-point victory over Richmond despite missing a host of key players including Joel Selwood, Tom Hawkins and Mitch Duncan.
Geelong showed excellent versatility last week and the most impressive thing is that Patrick Dangerfield was not a one-man band in still being able to topple a top four side.
Dangerfield was brilliant though, as usual, returning from suspension to collect a game high 30 disposals. Harry Taylor proved to be one of the most versatile competitors in the AFL, widely considered one of the top defenders in the competition, he swung forward last week to kick a game high four goals.
The teams clashed at the MCG in Round 6 with Collingwood causing a big upset winning by 29 points.
Taylor Adams was outstanding in that game recording an equal game high 36 disposals and will again be a key player in most disposals betting.
Patrick Dangerfield had an uncharacteristically quiet game collecting just 21 disposals and will be eager to bounce back with a high possession game.
Collingwood has won three straight games against Geelong and will be keen to finish the season strongly to help build momentum heading into next season and to give Coach Nathan Buckley a chance to keep the job as head coach.
While Collingwood has a good recent record over Geelong and has been a big improver in the second half of the year, this is a vital game for Geelong and we anticipate that they will have too much class for the Pies.
If you fancy the Cats for the flag you can now snap up $10 with Ladbrokes.
Harry Taylor kicked a game high four goals last week and looks a good bet for the most.
