Pride is the only thing on the line for two of this season’s disappointments.
In a season where just about any side is still a chance at winning the premiership this is a clash between two sides that will not feature.
Both suffered a season ending blow last week in games they both would have expected to win with North Melbourne losing to underachievers Gold Coast and Fremantle blowing a late lead to lose late against St Kilda.
It is a battle between two out of form sides with North Melbourne having lost four straight matches and the Dockers having lost five straight games.
Both sides have really struggles at Etihad Stadium this season.
The Kangaroos have played at the ground nine times for just two wins while Fremantle is winless in three attempts.
Both these sides need to win for pride, but especially North Melbourne who will be in front of their home crowd and continue to blood youngsters into the side.
Last time these sides played it was the Dockers winning by five points in an incredibly low scoring game where the total reached just 132 points.
Despite the fact that game was so low this promises to be a high scoring game with both sides throwing caution to the wind. As a result, one of the suggested bets is to take the Total Game Score Over 181.5 at $1.90 with Sportsbet.
When these sides met last Nat Fyfe had 26 disposals and we anticipate he could have a big game on Sunday and represents value in the most disposal market.
It is hard to bet on the Head-to-Head market in this game with both teams so horribly out of form, but it should be an open contest with plenty of points scored and the key midfielders finding plenty of the ball.
If you anticipate that it will be a thrilling finish the $3 on either side winning by Under 15.5 points with the insurance of the draw also looks an appealing betting opportunity.
Nat Fyfe had a day out the last time he played North and we think he will be good for at least 30 disposals.
TOTAL GAME SCORE OVER 181.5
NAT FYFE 30 DISPOSALS OR MORE
