AFL Round 6: Port Adelaide v North Melbourne Preview & Betting Tips
Coming off their brilliant upset win last week Port Adelaide will be looking to continue that momentum when they host the Kangaroos.
Port Adelaide v North Melbourne - Adelaide Oval - 7:20pm
Up to fifth on the ladder entering Round 6 thanks to a percentage-boosting victory over the Eagles in Perth, Port Adelaide will go in search of another dominant win when they host the last-placed North Melbourne Kangaroos.
Friday’s 42-point shock victory over the reigning premiers saw the Power move on swiftly from consecutive disappointing losses to the Lions and Tigers. Elsewhere, North Melbourne failed to avoid a fourth loss from the opening five rounds by going down by 48-points to Essendon on Good Friday.
The Kangaroos have been abysmal at both ends of the ground this season, something that was amplified in their only previous interstate match – a 141-59 loss to the Dockers during Round 1. Further building a case for the home side is the fact Port Adelaide has defeated North Melbourne in each of their last four head-to-head matchups. That stretch includes a 70-point demolition job at this venue in 2017.
Key Stat: Port Adelaide has failed to cover the line in its last seven matches at the Adelaide Oval.
Tip: Port Adelaide
