AFL Round 15: Geelong v Adelaide Preview & Betting Tips
The Cats will look to bounce back from just their second defeat of the season when they host the surging Adelaide Crows on Friday night.
Geelong v Adelaide - GMHBA Stadium - 7:50pm
Adelaide travels to Geelong to face the Cats on Friday night fresh off just their second defeat of the season against the Crows’ crosstown rivals. Again, the bye proved invaluable for the Cats who have now lost their last eight matches after a week off.
Adelaide heads into this fixture with three straight wins prior to their bye last week and has jumped up to 5th on the ladder. It will be just their third trip to Victoria for the season and first since Round 6 when they defeated the Saints at Marvel Stadium. However, their record in Geelong dire, having lost their last 10 matches at GMHBA Stadium and not tasting victory at the venue since 2003.
The teams have already met once this season back in Round 3 where the Cats led throughout to record a 24-point victory to snap a three-game losing streak against the Crows. The visitors will be without Josh Jenkins for the next 4-6 weeks but will regain Tom Lynch in a like for like replacement.
Key Stat: Geelong has a 30-6 W/L record as a home team, after an interstate match from 2010 onwards.
Best bet: Geelong 1-39
Value bet: Geelong 40+
