Collingwood Magpies v Essendon Bombers

Wednesday 3:20pm

MCG

 

Essendon has been a tipster’s nightmare in recent history with the Bombers continuing a trend from last year of winning when they are underdogs and losing when they are favourites. That means there is always going to be value on offer in Essendon matches who have already knocked off both Adelaide sides in 2018.

 

Collingwood, on the other hand, might just be the best team in the competition when there is no pressure on them. After causing the biggest upset of the season so far by knocking off Adelaide on their own turf, the heat will be on the Pies to replicate that form.

 

The traditional ANZAC Day clash is always a fiercely contested battle with the Pies getting three straight wins in recent times prior to the Bombers getting an 18-point victory.

 

With the Pies and Bombers recording big wins last week this one is really a 50/50 split but we’re going for some value and tipping Essendon to get the win.

 

Best Bet: Essendon (Win) @ $2.02

 

Value Bet: Essendon 1-19 (Margin) @ $4.33
