The Tigers must win to keep their top four chances alive.

 

Richmond was the buzz side of the competition heading into their clash with Geelong last week but may have experienced a slight reality check against the Cats.

 

Richmond was as short as $8 in premiership betting but is now out to $12 with Crownbet and bet365 to win their first flag since 1980.

 

The Tigers are one of few Victorian sides that has a good record at Domain Stadium with Richmond having won four of their past five games at the venue and they look well placed to continue that impressive record against a Dockers side that lost by 104 points last week.

 

The sides met earlier in the season with the Dockers pulling off a stunning victory after the siren to salute by two points. That was back in Round 8 at the MCG. Michael Walters was brilliant in this clash and despite some inaccurate goal scoring he had a game high 38 disposals.

 

Even though this game is back at the Dockers home ground, they are playing nowhere near as well as they were at that stage and the end of the season, so we can’t come in to them here. From what we have seen of Fremantle lately it appears as though season’s end can’t come quick enough.

 

Brownlow Medal favourite Dustin Martin was relatively quiet against Geelong last week and will be keen to finish the season strongly to ensure he polls the most Brownlow votes. Martin is now $1.20 to win the award at Luxbet.

 

The line with Richmond giving up 19.5 looks low and we are anticipating a big win for the yellow and black.

 

If the Tigers start strongly they could inflict another big defeat on the Dockers so not only do we suggest a bet on the Tigers at the line, but don’t be afraid to have a few bets on them winning by bigger margins including the over 40 and over 60 categories.

 

STATS BET

Jack Riewoldt kicked a game high three goals when these sides met last and looks a good bet for the most.
